Virtual Chamber Music Concert - Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Orchestra

DOWNLOAD PDF CONCERT PROGRAM




 


The 90-minute program explores music from the 17th to the 21st centuries and features the virtual world premiere Michael Murrin’s “Fuel of the Soul,” written for the postponed 60th anniversary concert. Fourteen Chamber groups from the Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Orchestra present a virtual performance, featuring the world premiere performance of Michael Murrin's "Fuel for the Soul" which was commissioned by the SRSYO to celebrate its 60th anniversary. We hope you enjoy!

Murrin, an alumnus of the SRS Youth Ensembles, is the second composer to participate in the SRS Institute for Music Education’s First Opus Project, which echoes the Santa Rosa Symphony's First Symphony Project. The First Opus Project allows young composers to create new compositions for young musicians and emphasizes the important connection between the composer, conductor and musician in the creation of a new work.

Collaborating online, the young musicians prepared for and recorded their individual parts, which have been expertly stitched together for a chamber concert recording. Murrin’s Fuel of the Soul is the most ambitious piece in the program with 26 brass and percussion musicians.

Represented in the program are: Italian Baroque composers Francesco Gasparini, Arcangelo Corelli and Antonio Vivaldi; German Baroque composer Georg Philipp Telemann; Classical composers Leopold Mozart (the father) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (the son) and Joseph Haydn; 19th-century Irish-American Swan Hennessey and German Ernst Kummer; 20th-century Brazilian composer Heitor Villa Lobos and Murrin.
