Event Program (PDF)

The Palimpsest concert features one of the great works of the late Twentieth Century, Gyorgy Ligeti's Kammerkonzert for 13 Instrumentalists. This colorful and virtuosic piece will fill the Conrad Prebys Concert Hall with glorious sounds and captivating energy. Alongside this masterwork will be the premieres of two inspired new works for the same ensemble written by UCSD PhD candidates Aaron Helgeson, currently acting Assistant Professor at Oberlin College; and Anna Thorvaldsdottir, the leading Icelandic composer of her generation. The program also includes the exciting A Fuoco by contemporary Italian composer Luca Francesconi, featuring the accomplished Mexican guitarist Pablo Gomez.
