MASON BATES Mothership
CINDY MCTEE Einstein's Dream
STEVE REICH Three Movements for Orchestra
JOHN ADAMS Scheherazade.2

Your RPO takes part in the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival in this adventurous and exciting program featuring four living composers: Bates, McTee, Reich, and Adams. The program opens with Mason Bates’ Mothership, an energetic piece that imagines the orchestra as a mothership that is ‘docked’ by visiting soloists, who offer brief but virtuosic riffs on the work’s thematic material over action-packed electro-acoustic orchestral figuration. Einstein’s Dream by Cindy McTee reads like a diary, each entry recording the dreams of Albert Einstein as he worked on his theory of relativity. Reich’s Three Movements for Orchestra will engage audiences with its unexpected orchestra layout and three movements – fast, slow fast! – that move from one into another without pause. The program concludes with world-renowned violinist Leila Josefowicz as soloist in John Adams’ Scheherazade .2.
