The concerto has a long and ingrained tradition in the world of classical music. We’re excited to see how composers explore or depart from this tradition. In this playlist we’ve given the past a nod, see especially Scott McIntyre’s work referencing Beethoven, but also included a work for jazz orchestra by Nadia Burgess, as a nod to the jazz convention of giving players solos, their moment in the spotlight. In another vein, Kirsten Milenkos’ work addresses environmental themes. We hope you enjoy this selection of “duels” or “conversations” between one and many.
