Ann and Jerry Moss Theater
Jacobsen/Aghaei: Ascending Bird
Seyfried: Concerto for Two Violins and Orchestra (West Coast Premiere)
Beethoven: Symphony No.7
The opening concert of the season highlighted dance and rhythm, with three unique and varied works. Beethoven’s magnificent Symphony No.7 was deemed by Richard Wagner to be “the apotheosis of the dance”. The orchestra also performed the West Coast Premiere of Sheridan Seyfried’s Concerto for Two Violins and Orchestra. Neo-romantic in style, it features a bluegrass inspired final movement. Colin Jacobsen and Siamak Aghaei’s Ascending Bird, based on a traditional Persian folk melody, opened the concert.
