Also, meet Derek Bermel as he begins a three-year tenure as the Orchestra’s composer-in-residence. Drawing from a rich variety of musical genres, this “brilliant musical vagabond has made the sounds of the world his palette to create a singular artistic vision” (Sequenza 21).
The program includes Bermel’s “A shout, a whisper, and a trace” (west coast premiere); Mozart’s Recitative and Aria for Soprano, Piano and Orchestra, “Ch’io mi scordi di te…non temer, amato bene” (“To forget you…Do not fear, beloved”); Mozart’s Aria “Vorrei spiegarvi, oh Dio!” (“Dear God, would that I could explain”); Copland’s “Eight Poems of Emily Dickinson;” R Strauss’s Sextet from Capriccio; and his “Grossmächtige Prinzessin” (Zerbinetta’s aria) from “Ariadne auf Naxos” (1912 version).
