Program

Ives: Three Places in New England
Layered and hymnal; one of the first American pieces played outside of the country

Tchaikovsky: Rococo Variations
Elegant and lively; the original cellist had a large role in revising the composition

Daniel Zlatkin ’16: Climb (World Premiere)
Climb is a journey, and an elegy. There is darkness in the music, but also glowing, and ascension.

Tamzin Elliott ’16: Daughters Concerto (World Premiere)
Thoughtful and sensual; this is a feminist work

Sibelius: Symphony No. 5
Mythic and lush; the ‘swan-call’ motif has been quoted by musicians like John Coltrane and Gorillaz
