This evening’s program features composer Kevin Puts’ Moonlight, a concerto for oboe and string orchestra inspired by the film and its themes of resilience and compassion. Moonlight features the virtuosic oboe soloist Katherine Needleman, for whom the work is written. Richard Danielpour’s Apparitions for string orchestra and percussion is a collection of pieces inspired by fantasies, dream, and stories of the supernatural. Valentin Silvestrov’s Silent Music for string orchestra is a beautiful work by Ukraine’s most famous living composer, who recently fled the war in Ukraine. The Festival’s superstar percussionists take centerstage in Christopher Rouse’s exhilarating Ogoun Badagris, a work deriving its inspiration from Haitian drumming pattern; and Andrea Reinkemeyer’s percussion quartet entitled #@&%!* (expletive deleted).
