This evening’s concert is the first of two evenings featuring the work of Pulitzer Prize–winning guest artist, Melinda Wagner, whose Unsung Chordata (2018) is a meditation on “creating something out of nothing, with few guarantees.” We’ll also hear two short gems – Franz Hasenöhrl’s whirlwind arrangement of Strauss’s playful tone poem, and Stravinsky’s virtuosic Concertino– and a longer one – Brahms’s clarinet trio in its arrangement for viola, allowing a beloved favorite to shine through a different lens.
