The concert opens with Instances (2012) by Pulitzer-winning modernist American composer Elliott Carter, written a few months before he died at age 103. Carter described the eight-minute work as “a series of short interrelated episodes of varying character.” Next on the program is Mozart’s Concerto for Piano in D minor, K. 466, a dark and stormy work that remains one of the composer’s most popular, with piano faculty member Catharine Lysinger as soloist. Following intermission, the orchestra performs a short, relaxing piece, Gabriel Fauré’s Pavane, based on stately court dances of the 16th century. The concert concludes with Symphony No.7 by Jean Sibelius, which writer James Keller called “music that is in turn lofty, serene, dignified and passionate, music of unearthly beauty.” The concert will be led by David Fulmer, music director and conductor of the Hunter Symphony at Hunter College in New York City. Fulmer is the winner of numerous national and international awards, including a 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship and the 2016 Koussevitzky Award, and maintains an international career as a composer, performer and conductor. For more information, call 214.768.2787.
