Event description

Description

The Chelsea Symphony presents the season finale of RESOLUTION with a concert featuring John Corigliano's Symphony No. 1. Written in the late 1980s, the AIDS pandemic was claiming the lives of many. As the first of his large format works, the symphonic form here is used to commemorate, as the composer noted, "my friends – those I had lost and the one I was losing." Partly inspired by the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, the first movement is subtitled "Apologue: Of Rage and Remembrance," and is dedicated to a pianist. The next two movements commemorate a music executive and a cellist. In the finale, a tarantella melody played by piano in a featured role and the cello line from the previous movements are juxtaposed against “a repeated pattern consisting of waves of brass chords ... [to convey] an image of timelessness."

Also on this finale series are the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto as TCS welcomes Adam von Housen back as a soloist on Saturday's concert. The winning composition from the 2018-19 TCS Composition Competition, now in its fifth year, will open the performance.

Concert will be held at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music, 450 West 37th Street
