Presented by Eugene Symphony

This is the first of three interlinked concerts that highlight how individual creativity creates connections between us, which then help forge a community. We hear Sergei Rachmaninov’s epic and inventive Second Piano Concerto, which brought him back from the brink of writer’s block that threatened his career. Before it, we inaugurate our four-year “First Symphony Project” with a new work by Composer-in-Residence Matthew Browne. And to begin, we bring the audience into the act, as Chinese master Tan Dun’s short work includes the sounds of wind and birdsong that you play from your own smartphone while the orchestra plays onstage.

Francesco Lecce-Chong, conductor | Daniel Hsu, piano*

Tan Dun: Secrets of Winds and Birds

Matt Browne: Symphony No. 1 (NW Premiere, Eugene Symphony Co-Commission)
