Our Next Season Concert
- Tracking Pierrot - Earle Brown
- Le Tombeau de Rameau II - Joël-François Durand
- Tema - Franco Donatoni
Friday, June 13, 2014, 8:00 PM
The Chapel in the Good Shepherd Center
A concert of Music on Music! The best way a composer can pay tribute to, comment on or criticize a piece is to write another piece of music in response. SMO will present three composers that have entered into a dialogue with another composer's work: Earle Brown's Tracking Pierrot – a tribute to Arnold Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire, UW Faculty member Joël-François Durand's Tombeau de Rameau II – a deformation/expansion of Rameau's Pièces de Clavecin en Concerts, and Franco Donatoni's Tema, in which he further develops ideas from a previous work of his own, Ruisseau dans l’escalier.
