Event Information

Starting off the 2018 Naumburg Orchestral Concert season on Tuesday, June 12, Ensemble LPR celebrates the birthdays of two living composers. The East Coast premiere of Thea Musgrave’s Aurora is part of a world-wide celebration of her 90th birthday. Inspired by lines from Act III of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the work represents dawn and the vast potential of youth. In honor of John Corigliano’s 80th birthday, Ensemble LPR will perform his The Red Violin: Suite for Violin and Orchestra with award-winning violinist Tessa Lark. In keeping with the group’s mission of presenting works by living composers alongside new interpretations of the standard repertoire, the concert will also feature a world premiere by David Handler—who is also the ensemble’s Founding Artistic and Executive Director—and performances of well-known favorites, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings and Claude Debussy’s Clair de Lune.
