A Fanfare
and Fireworks

Date: April 29, 2017
Time: 8 PM
Venue: Tsai Performance Center at Boston University

The New England Philharmonic will close out its 40th anniversary season with a program that illustrates what the NEP does best—performing rarely heard works of the last two centuries and championing local composers by commissioning new works.

Six works in total make up the program—three from the 20th century (Copland’s Orchestral Variations, Currier’s Microsymph, Kodály’s Peacock Variations) and three from the 21st century. Two of the latter were commissioned by the NEP; Flourish: A Fanfare for Orchestra from former Composer-in-Residence Peter Child, and Violin Concerto No. 2, from present Composer-in-Residence, David Rakowski. The piece was written for NEP’s concertmaster, Danielle Maddon, who will perform it. The final piece of the evening Oblivion, a Boston premiere, is from Ukrainian composer Liliya Ugay, winner of the NEP’s 31st annual Call for Scores.
