Maurice Gusman Concert Hall, University of Miami
The Frost Wind Ensemble, with soprano Amy Burton (described as ‘lustrous’ by the New York Times) performs a multi-leveled and adventurous wind ensemble orchestration of John Corigliano’s Grammy® award-winning Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems of Boby Dylan, a deconstructive orchestral song cycle that pays homage to the iconic ’60s singer-songwriter. In this work, Corigliano composed new music to Dylan’s emotionally charged and poetic lyrics, much like Brahms did with Goethe in his day. Conducted by Gary Green, the music ranges from gorgeously melancholy, to gut-jolting and wild.
You will also hear the world premiere of Tropical Mainframes by Mason Bates, which the Frost Wind Ensemble will perform again at the College Band Directors National Association’s conference. This new work, with its flickering orchestration and tropical overtones, comes boldly to life with the punch of staccato saxes and the textural diversity of quiet percussion that is so unique in a wind ensemble setting.
Two giant works, a fabulous soprano, and the incredible Frost Wind Ensemble! Four great reasons to order tickets right away.
