SPCO in Concert

October 31 @ 8:00 pm


Arthur Honegger: Pastorale d’été (Summer Pastoral) for Chamber Orchestra

Grazyna Bacewicz: Concerto for Strings

Missy Mazzoli: Contrabass Concerto, Dark with Excessive Bright (U.S. Premiere)
Zachary Cohen, bass

Franz Schubert: Symphony No. 5 in B-flat

From Honneger’s sultry embrace of the summer dawn to Schubert’s effervescent Fifth Symphony, this vibrant music celebrates the bright flush of youth. Two trailblazers — Poland’s Grazyna Bacewicz from the last century, and America’s own Missy Mazzoli, a millennial superstar — honor the resonant harmonies and lucid textures of Baroque masterpieces, as rendered in their vivid scores for stringed instruments. Ruth Reinhardt, hailed by The Seattle Times for her “incandescent talent,” leads this illuminating program.
