    Overview

    Conductor: Peter Oundjian
    Conductor: John Adams
    Guest Artist: 
    Jeremy Denk, piano 


    The Festival’s focus on today’s music continues as Music Director Peter Oundjian conducts the final symphony by Christopher Rouse. The New York Times called Rouse’s Sixth “a haunting and profound farewell” true to the composer’s character: “all of Mr. Rouse — contemplative elegy, rowdy playfulness, eclectic homage — is in this score.” World-renowned conductor and composer John Adams takes the podium to lead his own Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?, a work of “funk-invested American style.” In her Tumblebird Contrails, composer Gabriella Smith calls to mind the Pacific Ocean and “keening gulls, pounding surf, rush of approaching waves, sizzle of sand, and sea foam in receding tide.”
