One event on March 10, 2018 at 8:00pm
Mozart: Symphony No. 39 in E-flat, K. 543
Mühlrad: Angelus Novus (world premiere)
Martin and Göran Fröst: Nomadia for Clarinet and Orchestra (world premiere)
Nordin: Emerge for Clarinet and Orchestra (world premiere)
Martin Fröst leads the SPCO, beginning with Angelus Novus for percussion and strings by Swedish composer Jacob Mühlrad and ending with two premieres of works written for Fröst, showcasing his dazzling abilities as a performer. Martin and his brother Göran Fröst collaborated on the composition of Nomadia, a work that stretches the sonic capabilities of the clarinet. Swedish composer Jesper Nordin’s Emerge uses an app invented by Nordin called “Gestrument” that enables Fröst to control sound and create sound sculptures in real time with his physical gestures. In Mozart’s Symphony No. 39, Martin takes up the baton to lead the SPCO in a majestic account of an SPCO staple.
