Concerto for Orchestra Project

7/12/2015



 

Throughout its history, the Orchestra has given American premieres of works by such composers as Debussy, Ravel and Bartók and has commissioned works that have since become mainstays of the classical repertoire, including Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man.

During the 2015-16 season, the CSO continues this tradition of championing new music with the commissions and world premieres of three Concertos for Orchestra, by composers Sebastian Currier (November 19 & 21), Thierry Escaich (May 6-7, 2016) and Zhou Tian(May 13-14, 2016).

In 2013, the CSO commissioned and premiered his work Poem from a Vanished Time, called “lush” and “neo-impressionistic” by the Cincinnati Enquirer.
