Oregon Mozart Players: Zhou Tian Flute Concerto
Our season opens with a bold program of works reflecting the adage to which Haydn alludes in his spirited Symphony No. 64: “The times change, and we change with them.” Grammy award-winning flutist, Molly Barth, ushers in the changing times with Zhou Tian’s Viaje for Flute and Strings and genre-breaking performer Min Xiao-Fen forges new paths in Daniel Schnyder’s Concerto for Pipa, a stunning showcase for the Chinese lute. Kevin Lau’s Artemis, a musical portrait of the Greek goddess of the hunt, rounds out this audacious program.
