125th Anniversary Celebration


January 18-19, 2020

Program and Description


William WINSTEAD: New Work [World Premiere, CSO Commission]
YSAŸE: Exil!
ELLINGTON: New World A-Comin'
GERSHWIN: Rhapsody in Blue (for Pianola and Orchestra)
Daniel BJARNASON: Collider [CSO Commission]
SCRIABIN: Symphony No. 5, Prometheus: The Poem of Fire

What’s interesting about this concert:

• George Gershwin, a former guest artist with the CSO, recorded the piano roll used for this player piano performance of Rhapsody.
• Bjarnason uses gigantic orchestral forces to match the scale of the Large Hadron Collider, the largest machine ever made.
• Scriabin’s synesthesia, seeing hallucinations of color while hearing sounds, inspired the invention of an imaginary “color organ” that would reflect this reality. The CSO brings this instrument to life with video by Tal Rosner.

This concert is part of Series 3.
