About "Stravinsky: Reconstructed"
Elevate’s season-opener “Stravinsky: Reconstructed” breaks down and rebuilds Igor Stravinsky’s "Octet for Wind Instruments", a seminal composition of the 1920s written for an unusual combination of instruments. In the first half of the show, Elevate’s eight wind soloists will perform a flurry of virtuosic solo and duo works from locations around the concert hall, showcasing the individual voices of the Octet. They will then unite on stage for a performance of Stravinsky's wild and vibrant "Octet for Wind Instruments."
The second half will open with the premiere of Aaron Gervais' octet "Don't Look At" followed by the premiere of Composer-in-Residence Nick Vasallo's epic concerto for piano-four-hands and octet. The concerto, titled "ATUM: Everything and Nothing", is inspired by the myth of Atum, the Egyptian God of Creation and will feature the Grammy-nominated ZOFO Duet as soloists.
