UMD Wind Orchestra: Contrasts
UMD Wind Orchestra Plays Lindberg, Reich
The UMD Wind Orchestra closes their 2013-14 season with Contrasts
, a program of compositions by two of modern music's most acclaimed composers. Magnus Lindberg's Gran Duo
is a playful, complex and textually varied piece, while Steve Reich's serene Tehilim
draws on his minimalist style and Jewish heritage. The concert opens with a preview of the UMD Symphony Orchestra's original interpretation of Copland's Appalachian Spring
with movement design by UMD alumna and renowned choreographer Liz Lerman. Music director Michael Votta conducts.

Two ribald operas dramatize adulterous love affairs, murder and everything in between. In the darkly comic Pagliacci, a play-within-a-play reveals the sordid underpinnings of a clown's relationship with his cheating wife. In the stirring Cavalleria Rusticana a young soldier reunites passionately with his now-married former lover, with tragic results. Often performed in tandem, these two classic works are presented by Maryland Lyric Opera, which strips down its productions to emphasize the raw power of the sound of human voice. Learn More
