*****

The Chelsea Symphony presents “Made of Stars” as its chamber concert series on October 25-26 during the fourteenth season, RISE UP. Featured on this program are Mozart’s “Jupiter” Symphony and Jessie Montgomery’s piece with “explosive verve,” Starburst.

TCS members are featured in works in the first half: a world premiere work by TCS resident composer and founding member Aaron Dai opens both concerts. Friday’s concert presents hornist Peter DelGrosso on Mozart’s Fourth Horn Concerto and TCS is thrilled to welcome back Jason Smoller as English horn soloist on Jennifer Higdon’s Soliloquy. On Saturday’s concert, bassoonist Tilden Marbit is the featured performer on Weber’s Andante & Rondo Ongarese and Adam Schommer solos on the second horn concerto by Franz Joseph Haydn, a jaunty and lively work with a contrasting melancholic Adagio second movement.

Starburst by Jessie Montgomery was commissioned by the Sphinx Organization and premiered in 2012. Packing a big punch in just three and a half minutes, it “reflects today’s fashionable motoric, pop-oriented, post-minimalist style, albeit with memorable melodies, structural discipline, and not one cliché in the book.”

The “Jupiter” Symphony was as ‘of its time’ as Starburst is of our time, the longest and last symphony of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Of the celebrated last movement, renowned music historian Sir George Grove noted, "it is for the finale that Mozart has reserved all the resources of his science, and all the power, which no one seems to have possessed to the same degree with himself, of concealing that science, and making it the vehicle for music as pleasing as it is learned. Nowhere has he achieved more."

Daniel Anglés-Alcázar, an astronomer at Northwestern University, said, “science is very useful for finding our place in the universe.” It should be said that music is very useful for finding our place in our world.

Concert run time: 80-85 minutes including a 15-minute intermission
Concert will be held at the St. Paul's German Lutheran Church, 315 West 22nd Street
