CSO Sessions Episode 21: Cult of Electromagnetic Connectivity
Mead Composer-in-Residence Missy Mazzoli curates a dynamic program featuring two world premieres: Cult of Electromagnetic Connectivity, an evocative new commission by award-winning composer and flutist Nicole Mitchell, founder of the Black Earth Ensemble, and Delta Blues, a work by composer and trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith. CSO Principal Bass Alexander Hanna is featured soloist on Mazzoli’s own Dark with Excessive Bright, a concerto that refracts Baroque influences through a modern lens.
