Guest conductor Peter Oundjian leads the Yale Philharmonia Apr. 5

Concert features American works of Rouse, Barber, Copland, and Adams

The Yale School of Music presents the Philharmonia Orchestra of Yale with its principal guest conductor, Peter Oundjian, on Friday, April 5, 2013. The program highlights American music from the past hundred years, from Aaron Copland to John Adams. The concert takes place at 8 pm in Woolsey Hall (500 College Street, New Haven).

The performance will open with Christopher Rouse’s Infernal Machine, an orchestral showpiece inspired by the vision of a sinister but awe-inspiring eternal machine in motion for no particular purpose. Next is Samuel Barber’s heartrending Adagio for Strings, a work described by Alexander J. Morin as “full of pathos and cathartic passion.” MORE
