Event Program (PDF)

A study in very sharp contrasts, works by Debussy frame much more recent music. The concert opens with Debussy's final orchestral work, his wry ballet Jeux, about love and tennis, and closes with his nocturnes Nuages and Fetes, each a study in orchestral color. In between are the premiere of Phil Kline's A Dream and Its Opposite, featuring Real Quiet (Felix Fan, Andrew Russo, David Cossin), and the U.S. premiere of Iannis Xenakis' Metastasis (Alpha version), a work shaped by Einstein's concept of time and Le Corbusier's theories of architecture. Steven Schick conducts. His program note is here.
