UMWO musicians explore musical images of darkness and color through the works of contemporary composers. Les Couleurs Fauves (“Vivid Colors”) is a product of Karel Husa’s fascination with brilliant colors in music, nature and art while Rochberg’s Black Sounds is a dark score, originally written as film music for an erotic murder mystery. Kukla’s Folksongs for Winds includes traditional tunes from around the world. UMD faculty member Lee Hinkle also joins UMWO for a performance of the rarely-heard Steven Stucky Percussion Concerto.
