Higdon Low Brass Concerto with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra
November 21 @ 8:00 pm
Music Director Ward Stare leads your RPO in three distinct pieces of work, connected by their differences in this interesting program. Strauss’ Metamorphosen is an elegiac opus for 23 strings that the LA Weekly called, “Solemn, dark, and resigned music from the end of a sorrowing composer’s life.” Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon’s Low Brass Concerto has been called a “wonderfully accessible, richly melodic new work…” by the Chicago Sun-Times. Beethoven’s powerful “Eroica” Symphony represents a turning point in musical history.
