Program Notes & Works
Les Préludes, Symphonic Poem No. 3
Liszt’s Les Préludes was the third, and probably most familiar, of his “symphonic poems,” a genre that sought parallels with the Romantic literature of the age.
Concerto for Piano and Orchestra
Charming and witty, Ligeti's Piano Concerto is saturated with aural illusions and sparkling textures.
Orpheus, Ballet in three scenes
The ballet Orpheus edges toward the extreme reaches of Stravinsky’s neoclassicism.
All the resources and colors of a massive orchestral edifice are brought to bear in Adès’s single-movement symphony Tevot.
