Mid-Atlantic Symphony “From Movie Themes to Classics”

September 29, 2019

An American Premiere by an Argentine-American composer opens our season! Lalo Schifrin, known for his legendary film scores, such as Mission Impossible and Bullitt, is also a wonderful concert music composer. His mandolin concerto has been commissioned by Europe’s foremost mandolinist, Vincent Beer-Demander, whose enthralling stage presence and virtuosity will certainly transport you. As a companion piece, we will play Nicolas Mazmanian’s Mission Impossible Variations, and we will close the concert with Beethoven’s Olympian Symphony No. 7, which Wagner called “the apotheosis of dance”.

  • Nicolas Mazmanian, Mission Impossible Variations
  • Lalo Schifrin, Mandolin Concerto
  • Ludwig Van Beethoven, Symphony No. 7

GUEST ARTIST: VINCENT BEER-DEMANDER, MANDOLIN

In a world of magical realism and rising water, two sisters are reunited at their family home. Mira, the caretaker sister, had to weather her mother’s death alone, and holds every childhood slight so close that she is literally burning from the inside out, shedding ashes and embers, as her wife, Amanda attempts to soothe her. Sister Deedee has returned to bring her fiancee, Pike, to safety, even as her memory is vanishing faster and faster. In this slowly drowning world, everyone is searching for higher ground. The sisters battle to the end, one unable to forget, the other unable to remember. Mox Nox is a play of lyrical magic and visual surprise, with characters who desperately need love and dry land. Mox Nox runs approximately 90 minutes without an intermission.
