Viet Cuong / Re(new)al: Percussion Quartet Concerto

Wiprud / Concerto for Violin No. 2 "on the brink" (World Premiere)

Beethoven / Symphony No. 4

Viet Cuong's unique percussion concerto is devoted to finding unexpected ways to breathe new life into traditional ideas, similar to renewable energy initiatives. Theodore Wiprud's violin concerto contemplates how we are coping with Earth's climate crisis and humanity's ingenuity and compassion for each other and our planet.  Two innovative new pieces matched with the innovative Beethoven.

"If any of Beethoven's contemporaries had written this symphony, it would be considered that composer's masterwork..." - Music professor Robert Greenberg
