The La Jolla Symphony & Chorus' season will conclude with David Chase conducting an imaginative pairing of works by two European masters who came to the U.S. at the beginning of World War II. Benjamin Britten composed his American Overture in 1941 for the Cleveland Orchestra, but it was not performed until 1983, six years after the composer’s death. Paul Hindemith’s moving setting of Walt Whitman’s elegy for Abraham Lincoln, When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d: A Requiem for Those We Love, is considered by many to be his finest work, featuring chorus, mezzo-soprano and baritone.
 
David Chase will conduct a performance of:
Benjamin Britten: An American Overture
Paul Hindemith: When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d: A Requiem for Those We Love

confined walls of unity
 
Brian Ferneyhough, the so-called father of new complexity, wrote six extremely complex and virtuous works for flute solo: Cassandra’s Dream Song (1970) for flute solo, Unity Capsule (1975-1976) for flute solo, Superscriptio (1981) for piccolo solo, Carceri d’Invenzione IIb (1984) for flute solo, Mnemosyne (1986) for bass flute and pre-recorded tape and Sispyhus Redux (2011) for alto flute solo.
 
His music causes a constant struggle for the performer: a struggle against the limits of the instrument, against the limits of notated music and against the limits of the body and mind.
 
As a result of her doctoral research, Ine Vanoeveren will present Brian Ferneyhough's integral oeuvre for flute solo.

PLEASE NOTE: As an experimental and new music department, much of our music is very intimate and quiet, for this reason, we request that students preparing concert reports refrain from writing or rustling papers during concerts.  We also respect the artistry of our musicians and adhere to a strict policy of NO LATE SEATING.  Guests arriving late may be turned away or will be asked to enter between pieces.
