Zellerbach Hall Concert Series
CONCERT II: THE REBELS
Date/Times: December 6, 2012, 8 pm
Prices: $15–$68 | Location: Zellerbach Hall, UC Berkeley
A champion of the newest voices of contemporary music, Berkeley Symphony introduces the bold and eclectic work of 21-year-old Dylan Mattingly, whom John Adams describes as “a hugely talented young composer who writes music of wild imagination and vigorous energy.” Pianist Shai Wosner, a daring virtuoso, performs one of the 20th century’s most complex and demanding scores by György Ligeti. In contrast to the rhythmical Piano Concerto, Schumann’s Symphony No. 2 is both passionate and exuberant. It’s a program that exhibits the power of past inspiration and fresh talent.
