Conductor Robin Ticciati teams up with star violinist Gil Shaham in a program featuring four composers all united in having been at the forefront of new styles or schools. Wagner epitomized high Romanticism, broadening the sound world with lush orchestrations, as in his epic operas like Lohengrin. Debussy defined the Impressionistic era with translucent works, including his famous La Mer. Shaham’s virtuosity will highlight the progressive and ethereal harmonies of Berg’s music. And Ligeti’s cosmic Atmosphères, which pushed the boundaries of musical notation and technique when it was written, is now most famously known for its incorporation into Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
