Event Information

GARROP: Mythology Symphony
   I. Becoming Medusa 

MOZART: Piano Concerto No. 14 in E-flat Major, K. 449
MAHLER Symphony No. 1 “Titan”

Sun Chang, piano

CUSO’s exploration of Gustav Mahler’s music continues with the autobiographical Symphony No. 1. This spectacular work, scored for a huge orchestra, draws upon a vast array of musical influences in Mahler’s life, from children’s songs to military marches. Contrasting Mahler’s titanic opus will be Garrop’s Becoming Medusa, a fascinating movement that traces the progression of this frightening mythological figure from “gorgeous” to “Gorgon.” You will also delight in the debut of the immensely talented and charming pianist Sun Chang, playing Mozart’s elegant Concerto No. 14.


This event is associated with Stacy Garrop and the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, a project sponsored by New Music USA.
