Please join us 45 minutes before the concert for "What's the Score?", a lively talk about the composers and the repertoire given by commentator Nuvi Mehta from the stage of Copley Symphony Hall.
Trumpets and other brilliant brass instruments shine brightly in a night full of dazzling virtuosity and grandeur! You’ll love the playful imagination of Andrew Norman — perhaps the most celebrated American composer of his generation. Pacho Flores will delight you with the classical elegance of Johann Baptist Georg Neruda’s trumpet concerto, and then the rhythms of Latin jazz meld with symphonic music in a new work by Cuban-American composer Paquito D’Rivera. Finally, the dramatic fanfares of fate take center stage in Piotr Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony.
“[Pacho Flores] is going on a crusade to broaden the trumpet repertoire and it is very important. But the problem I see is that Pacho plays all that (types) instruments, not every trumpet player dare to do what he does. But is always an opportunity for the other players to adapt their possibilities to the horizons that Pacho is opening for the trumpet repertoire.”
