The Chelsea Symphony Performs Jessie Montgomery, Jennifer Higdon, and Mozart
The October 25 and 26, 2019 concerts, Made of Stars, features Jessie Montgomery’s Starburst, a work for string orchestra that plays on the imagery of rapidly changing musical colors by using exploding gestures juxtaposed with gentle fleeting melodies to create a multidimensional soundscape, and Mozart’s Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter.” This series includes concerti such as Mozart’s Concerto for Horn, No. 4 with Peter DelGrosso on horn, Jennifer Higdon’s Soliloquy for English Horn and Strings with Jason Smoller on English horn, Carl Maria von Weber’s Andante & Hungarian Rondo with Tilden Marbit on bassoon, and Franz Joseph Haydn’s Horn Concerto No. 2 with Adam Schommer on horn. The concert begins with a world premiere by TCS composer-in-residence, Aaron Dai.
