Martin Fröst and Mozart’s 39th Symphony

March 9-10, 2018


Martin Fröst leads the SPCO in a program of works that span almost nine centuries, beginning with an antiphon by 12th-century mystic Hildegard von Bingen and ending with two premieres of works written for Fröst, showcasing his dazzling abilities as a performer. Martin and his brother Göran Fröst collaborated on the composition of Nomadia, a work that stretches the sonic capabilities of the clarinet. Danish composer Jesper Nordin’s Emerge uses an app invented by Nordin called “Gestrument” that enables Fröst to control sound and create sound sculptures in real time with his physical gestures. In Mozart’s Symphony No. 39, Martin takes up the baton to lead the SPCO in a majestic account of an SPCO staple.
