Grazyna Bacewicz │ Overture for Orchestra

Dinuk Wijeratne │ Tabla Concerto
Sandeep, tabla

Schumann│ Symphony No. 2

“This season, we have the privilege of exploring some incredible music by women composers. It’s unfathomable to me that Grażyna Bacewicz’s music has been basically ignored for the better part of a century, but now we’re going to make up for lost time, with a performance of one of her most exciting works – the Overture for Orchestra. … I discovered Dinuk Wijeratne a few years ago, and I’m convinced his Tabla Concerto is one of the best works of the 21st Century. I know we’re going to be hearing a lot more about Dinuk in the years to come, and I’m thrilled to be able to bring this music to you. … Schumann’s 2nd Symphony is one of those towering masterpieces that have stood the test of time, and for good reason. I feel renewed and full of faith in humanity whenever I experience it, and I know it’s going to be an audience favorite." — SoNA Music Director Paul Haas
