From the Mothership to the Underworld
Rockford Symphony Orchestra conducted by Vlad Vizireanu - Coronado Performing Arts Center
Originally commissioned by Michael Tilson Thomas for the YouTube Symphony, audience favorite, Mason Bates’ Mothership, is a 21st-century imagination of an orchestral scherzo. To complement the character and sound of Mothership is the world premiere of Paul Dooley’s Percussion Concerto. The first half closes with two pieces of battle music from the movies Troy and Gladiator—a powerful way to enter the underworld! The second half includes Tchaikovsky’s symphonic interpretation of the tragic tale of Francesca da Rimini, and George Enescu’s exhilarating Romanian Rhapsody.
Program: Mason Bates - Mothership Paul Dooley - Percussion Concerto James Horner & Hans Zimmer - Music from Troy & Gladiator Pyotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky - Francesca da Rimini, Op. 32 Georges Enescu - Romanian Rhapsody in A Major, Op. 11 No. 1
