Name

CSO Sessions Episode 6: Prestini, Perkinson & Mendelssohn

Description

Rhythmic energy propels three diverse works for various strings ensembles. A composer celebrated for her “otherworldly … outright gorgeous” music (The New York Times), Paola Prestini wrote G-Force for vibraphone and string quartet as a tribute to a close friend. Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, former music director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, based his string quartet on the African American spiritual “Calvary.” Mendelssohn was a precocious 16-year-old when he composed his dazzling Octet for strings.
