STRAVINSKY Concerto for Strings in D Major
FAIROUZ Violin Concerto (World Premiere)
Cosmopolitan and cutting edge, Mohammed Fairouz blends Middle-Eastern modes and Western structures to explore geopolitics and identity through music. His fast ascent into the ranks of top American composers reflects his melding of philosophy with craft. This performance will mark the world premiere of his newest violin concerto, conducted by his long time champion, former ASO Assistant Conductor Fawzi Haimor. Star violinist Rachel Barton Pine joins us for the world premiere.
