MTT and San Francisco Symphony Premiere Robin Holloway's Fourth Concerto for Orchestra

Classic Arts News   MTT and San Francisco Symphony Premiere Robin Holloway's Fourth Concerto for Orchestra
 
Robin Holloway is a 63-year-old composer and Cambridge University lecturer whose works (as described by his publisher, Boosey & Hawkes) swing between "a modernist stance" and "a radical liaison with Romanticism and tonality."

His latest work is his Fourth Concerto for Orchestra (yes, his fourth), commissioned by the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Which way does the new score swing? Audiences can find out this weekend, as the SFS gives the work its world premiere performances under the baton of music director Michael Tilson Thomas.

The first performance was a matinee at 2 p.m. yesterday; there are additional performances tonight and tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco. The program also includes two works by Brahms: the Academic Festival Overture and the Violin Concerto, featuring soloist Christian Tetzlaff.
