Lineage - La Jolla Symphony and Chorus

published 3 months ago by UCTV

La Jolla Symphony & Chorus begins their 64th season with questions about lineage: Where do we come from? How does the music of our past inform our understanding of the future? "Lineage," a piece by young Canadian composer Zosha de Castri, recalls how her grandmother's tales shaped her own sense of being Canadian. Igor Stravinskys Petrushka was inspired by his memories of Russian Shrovetide fairs, in all their color and excitement. Finally, everything on the planet began with water, and in celebration, Music Director Steven Schick gives up his baton to solo in Tan Duns "Concerto for Water Percussion and Orchestra," with Michael Gerdes conducting.
