Description of the concert being rehearsed:
Artistic Partner Patricia Kopatchinskaja leads a program that explores the mystery behind various incomplete musical fragments. The last part of Bach’s magnum opus, his Art of Fugue, trails off mysteriously mid-sentence just as Bach embarks on a complex fugue that contains his musical signature. Fragments of a German chorale (“Immortal Victims”) haunt Hartmann’s tragic Concerto funebre, and Kopatchinskaja intersperses selections from Kurtág’s Kafka Fragments between the movements of Mozart’s most dramatic symphony. The second half of the concert will begin with the second movement of Schubert’s Death and the Maiden Quartet, a piece the SPCO and Patricia Kopatchinskaja’s 2016 recording won a Grammy for, in the Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance category.
Please note: Specific works and artists involved in the rehearsal are to be determined.
