KEVIN PUTS Millennium Canons
MASON BATES The B-Sides: Five Pieces for Orchestra
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67.
Beethoven’s Fifth for Brett Mitchell’s First. Hear Beethoven’s monumental Symphony No. 5 — a cornerstone of the Classical canon — in all its forceful grandeur at Music Director Brett Mitchell’s inaugural Classics concert. Kevin Puts’ Millennium Canons, a celebratory and optimistic composition written to usher in the new millennium, befits a premiere weekend. Versatile composer Mason Bates joins the Symphony as electronic soloist in The B-Sides: Five Pieces for Orchestra, a symphonic-electronica piece blending jazzy, city-pulse allure with exotic sounds that will sweep you away to another world. From the classical to the new-and-now, these composers come together beautifully in a program of the familiar and soon-to-be favorite. [Organizer's description]
