The Last Century

RUGGLES Angels for muted brass (1940 version)
STRAVINSKY Suite from Pulcinella
SÉJOURNÉ Concerto for Marimba and Strings
HINDEMITH Concert Music for Brass and Strings

Marcelo Lehninger, Conductor | Ji Su Jung, Marimba – Winner of the 2018 Ima Hogg Competition

Igor Stravinsky could be called the most revolutionary musical voice of the last century. Yet his “Pulcinella” glances backward, refracting the Baroque elegance of Pergolesi into Stravinskian sounds. Hindemith’s Concert Music for Brass and Strings is a shimmering showpiece, as are the floating “Angels” of maverick American Carl Ruggles. And recent prizewinner Ji Su Jung will dazzle in the Marimba Concerto of contemporary French master Emmanuel Séjourné.

Individual tickets start at $26 | Students $5
