Schubert’s overture to the Magic Harp begins a concert of endless possibilities. The winners of our Young Artist Competition – always an incredible delight to listen to – will dominate the middle of the program before Luciano Berio’s Rendering closes the performance. Berio uses fragments from Schubert’s incomplete tenth symphony as the structure and basis of this inventive work. Leaving Schubert’s original parts intact, Berio weaves them together with a harmonic and special texture that truly feels both a part of and something completely out of this world – you’re going to love it.
