UMD Wind Orchestra: Turning Points
UMD Wind Orchestra
Conductors Michael Votta and James Ross
Join UMWO for a performance of three works that represent critical points in composition and time.
Schoenberg reacted to the extravagance of late-Romantic music with his Chamber Symphony. Dense and concise, the work points to the future of 20th-century music.
Berlioz departs from his dramatic and theatrical composition style and embraces Classical traditions in his Grande Symphonie Funebre et Triomphale. Millennium Canons, composed in 2000 by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts, celebrates the turn of the century.
