VIOLA VISIONS: NEW CLASSIC VIOLA
October 19, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$65 – $85
Viola Visions closes with an epic concert celebrating the power and beauty of the viola. With MTT at the helm, three of the week’s guest artists step into the spotlight to share solo works accompanied by full orchestra. Roberto Díaz performs Jennifer Higdon’s unstoppable Viola Concerto, a work he premiered in 2015 before it won the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Classical Contemporary Composition. Time feels suspended in Morton Feldman’s heavy-hearted The Viola in My Life 4, performed by Cynthia Phelps. In the festival’s grand finale, Tabea Zimmermann gives the world premiere of Steven Mackey’s reimagining of Hector Berlioz’ beloved concerto-symphony hybrid Harold in Italy. Mackey, who will be in attendance, depicts Harold in a new light, elaborating on Berlioz’ colorful themes and adding a new cadenza.
