Civic Orchestra of Chicago Episode 6: Mazzoli & Schumann
Led by Principal Conductor Ken-David Masur, 44 musicians of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago come together to bring their virtual season to a lively conclusion. CSO Mead Composer-in-Residence Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres) is a bright and energetic piece, evoking the image of a solar system being flung recklessly into space. Schumann’s Fourth Symphony, recognized as a landmark for its thematic transformation, weaves drama and character into the traditional symphonic format until reaching its exuberant finale.
This free episode is available to watch beginning on Thursday, July 22, 2021.
