Conductor Joshua Weilerstein returns to conduct a program of musical homages. Frank Martin’s Polyptyque (1973) pays tribute to Bach’s Saint Matthew Passion through its scoring for double string orchestra. Valentin Silvestrov’s The Messenger (1996) alludes to the messenger who delivered an anonymous commission request to Mozart for his Requiem. Mozart’s final and most expansive symphony, Jupiter, contains fugal writing reminiscent of the great Baroque composers.
