Thierry Fischer conducts Rachmaninoff, Honegger & Nathan Lincoln de Cusatis (in Ogden)
Symphonic Dances was the only score Rachmaninoff completed in America, and a welcome return to form after quitting composition in frustration after 1936.
Concert Highlights Include:
Honegger’s symphonic “drama” is a highly personal response to World War II and features three symbolic “characters” – misery, happiness, and man.
Jazz and classical composer Nathan Lincoln de Cusatis takes us on a sonic trek through the Canyonlands in a work commissioned and performed by concertmaster Madeline Adkins.
Rachmaninoff’s last major work was a set of “Fantastic Dances” for orchestra that he hoped would be set as a ballet.
HONEGGER: Symphony No. 3 “Liturgique”
NATHAN LINCOLN de CUSATIS: The Maze for Violin and Orchestra (Western US Premiere, Commissioned by Madeline Adkins)
