Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 4
Roland Auzet Alone: Theatre and Music for Fiona
Guest artists: Tasha Koontz, soprano; Fiona Digney, percussion
It has been a tough few years in France – a time of strong crosswinds from every direction. Paris-based circus artist, composer, and percussionist Roland Auzet fights back in a new theatrical percussion concerto written for and co-commissioned by UCSD graduate student Fiona Digney. The balm of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, with one of the most beautiful slow movements ever written, helps calm the currents. Concert partner with San Diego Symphony’s “It’s About Time” festival.
