JULIA TAI, Conductor Finalist
Inspired by her travels through the industrial landscape of Detroit and the silhouette of the River Rouge Auto Plant, Missy Mazzoli’s River Rouge Transfiguration reimagines the grit and noise of Motor City into a resonant work for orchestra.
World-renowned cellist Gary Hoffman joins LexPhil as soloist for composer Ernest Bloch’s Schelomo; Hebraic Rhapsody, a work that embodies the spirit and sound of traditional Jewish music dating back thousands of years. The evening ends with Mendelssohn’s melodic Symphony No. 3, “Scottish”, his masterwork inspired by his travels as a young composer through Scotland.
Repertoire to include: (Subject to change)
MISSY MAZZOLI – River Rouge Transfiguration
BLOCH – Schelomo; Hebraic Rhapsody
Gary Hoffman, cello
MENDELSSOHN – Symphony No. 3 in A minor ‘Scottish’
