Orpheus will also perform an excerpt from a new commission by Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Aaron Jay Kernis. The new piece is called Concerto with Echos, which is inspired by Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 6. The St. Paul Pioneer Press has called Kernis “a composer of fastidious technique and wide-ranging imagination.”
This intimate evening is an opportunity to get up close and personal with the people that make up this extraordinary ensemble, and to learn about their unprecedented multi-year Brandenburg Concerto project.
