Cleveland Chamber Symphony lists 2008-2009 concerts
The Cleveland Chamber Symphony — as far as I'm concerned, the top new music group in Cleveland — has posted its upcoming concert schedule on its Web site.
On Oct. 5, a Sunday afternoon (the exact time is not posted) at Baldwin-Wallace College's Gamble Auditorium, the symphony will perform "Terpsichore's Dream" by Augusta Read Thomas, the world premiere of a new work by Larry Baker, "Cayuga Lake (Memories)" by Karel Husa and "Solstice" by Donald Erb. Erb is a Cleveland-area composer, and "Solstice" (which sounds like a winter storm) is a piece about 12 minutes long, available on the Cleveland Chamber Symphony's excellent "New American Scene III" album.
On March 22, 2009, also at Gamble, look for a new flute concerto by Jing Jing Luo, a new work by Jeffrey Mumford and "Kammersymphonie No. 1" by Schoenberg.
May 10, 2009, at Glick Recital Hall at the Cleveland Music School Settlement, expect "Boston Fancies" by Steven Stucky, "String Quartet" by Steven Smith, "Tatterdemalion" by Libby and "Nine Poems" by Dan Visconti.
May 16-17 2009, back at Baldwin-Wallace, is reserved for the Young and Emerging Composers Competition.
