PROGRAM
Christopher Rouse – Ogoun Badagris
  Live Recording
Tchaikovsky – Variations on a Rococo Theme
Enrico Chapela – Magnetar, Concerto for Electric Cello
Copland – Symphony for Organ & Orchestra
  • History in the Making – the orchestra will record Rouse’s Ogoun Badagris, a heavily rhythmic piece inspired by Haitian voodoo rituals.
  • Cellist Johannes Moser will perform on two works. The first is Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme, which is full of lush, romantic melodies.
  • Moser will also perform on contemporary Mexican composer Enrico Chapela’s innovative Magnetar, Concerto for Electric Cello, which combines a specially made electric cello with guitar pedals for some truly stunning effects — it’s a truly one-of-a-kind musical experience.
  • The Copland Symphony will showcase the incredible sound of the Martin Foundation Concert Organ surrounded by the full orchestra.
