Chamber Orchestra First Editions
3:00 PM
5:00 PM

W.A. Mozart, Symphony no. 1, K. 16

Cynthia Folio, \"Pentaprism\"
Heidi Jacob, \"Many in One\"
W.A. Mozart, Piano Concerto, K. 271

Chamber Orchestra FIRST EDITIONS mission is to focus on new commissioned works by area composers and early works by W.A. Mozart.  K. 271, for instance, has often been called Mozart's great \"break through,\" (in the words of composer George Crumb, \"Mozart's 'Eroica'\"), a work that seems suddenly more profound than anything that preceded it.  What happened between K. 16 and K. 271?  What new trends are Philadelphia's composers now pursuing?  And how do these two different themes converge and intersect?  These will be among the principal ideas behind every FIRST EDITIONS concert.  Experiments in program format, orchestra seating, audience involvement, and unannounced participation by non-classical music ensembles will all be aspects of our programs.
