Spring Concerts: Musical Metamorphosis
Seattle Collaborative Orchestra and the Saratoga Orchestra combine forces for a spring concert featuring works that were inspired by others, changing and metamorphosing the original into something new.
The program begins with the first movement, “The Sea and Sinbad's Ship”, from Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's timeless classic, Scheherazade. Then, the combined ensemble will give the world premiere of Leanna Primiani's 1001, a modern musical response to the epic tale of Scheherazade - this time from her perspective.
Also, on the program is Paul Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphosis, the first work he wrote in the United States after being banned by Nazis in his homeland of Germany. The piece is based on themes by composer Carl Maria von Weber.
Lastly, the orchestras will give the first complete live performance of Seattle composer Walt Wagner's The Miracle Piano Concerto. The work has four movements: Promise, Struggle, Faithfulness, and Fulfillment and was inspired by his personal Christian faith.
