The Phoenix Symphony in Prescott
BERNSTEIN – SERENADE
International Tchaikovsky Competition Winner – Jennifer Koh
Continuing to weave new American artistic works into the season, Tito Muñoz opens with a composition by Missy Mazzoli, the recipient of four ASCAP Young Composer Awards and a Fulbright Grant, who has been heralded as “one of the more consistently inventive, surprising composers now working in New York” by The New York Times. Mazzoli, who is influenced by minimalism, 19th-century Romanticism, techno and indie rock, has composed a gritty and complex work. The concert then features another New York and American favorite, Leonard Bernstein’s classic and elegantly fashioned orchestral work, Serenade, featuring the Arizona debut of violinist and International Tchaikovsky Competition winner, Jennifer Koh, known for her dazzling virtuosity. The program crests with the “Symphony of Independence,” Jean Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2.
