Concert Program VII

1990–2000, Music at the Millennium

A brilliant mosaic of musical voices illuminated the twentieth century’s final decade. Composers had a myriad of influences in their ears, from the world’s folk traditions to rock and roll. While such luminaries as Krzysztof Penderecki helped us process the traumas of the past century, a new generation looked anxiously and eagerly to a dawning horizon. This summer’s final Concert Program presents the uncompromising modernism, yesteryear Romanticism, and forward-looking audacity of music at the turn of the century.
