About This Program

Approximate length 1:15

Pianist and composer Conrad Tao makes his SPCO debut in a program built around Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s monumental Piano Concerto No. 24. A Renaissance madrigal by Carlo Gesualdo, a sunny keyboard concerto by C.P.E. Bach, and a cryptic work for viola and piano by Morton Feldman are like a twisting labyrinth of darkness and light that anticipates the harmonic instability and searching quality of Mozart’s concerto. Ruth Crawford-Seeger’s Music for Small Orchestra frames this journey with a slow, pensive descent into the dark maze and a roguish finale that climbs towards a window of light.
