One event on December 8, 2019 at 2:00 pm
Steven Schick, conductor
Celeste Oram Thomas Nee Commission
Robert Schumann Violin Concerto
John Adams Harmonium
Soloist: Keir GoGwilt, violin
Keir GoGwilt, who dazzled in Thomas Adès’ Violin Concerto two seasons ago, returns with another unfamiliar (and very different) piece, the Violin Concerto of Robert Schumann, one of that doomed composer’s final works. The La Jolla Symphony Chorus joins the orchestra for the work that launched John Adams’ career: Harmonium sets texts by John Donne and Emily Dickinson, and its premiere in 1981 announced the arrival of a major composer. Celeste Oram, this year’s Nee Commission winner, continues our tradition of melding music and visual art.
