Yale Philharmonia offers four 20th-century works for chamber orchestra in Sprague Hall Feb. 26-27

Program features the original version of Copland’s Appalachian Spring

Phil_Chamber_Orch_blogThe Yale Philharmonia, the premier ensemble of the Yale School of Music, will present two concerts of music for chamber orchestra on Friday and Saturday, February 26 and 27, at 8 pm in Sprague Hall. The program, which is the same each night, belies the twentieth century’s reputation for difficult music: all four pieces are tonal and among the era’s most approachable repertoire. Shinik Hahm, the conductor of the Yale Philharmonia, will lead both performances.

The program opens with Stravinsky’s neo-classical chamber concerto Dumbarton Oaks (1937-8), inspired by Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos. Closing the first half is the original version of Copland’s Appalachian Spring, scored for 13 instruments. The ever-popular work won Copland the 1945 Pulitzer Prize. Carl Nielsen’s Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra (1928) will feature soloist Paul Won Jin Cho, a winner of the 2009 Woolsey Hall Concerto Competition. The concert will conclude with Stravinsky’s Concerto in D for string orchestra.
