In the Spotlight: Bolcom, Jolley, Poteat & Hausmann

Seattle Symphony musicians bring the works of Seattle-based composers to life. The performance opens with Angelique Poteat's flowing and oscillating work for two clarinets, Ripples of Possibilities. Jérémy Jolley's (contro-)clessidra ((reverse-)hourglass) explores the relationships between individuals and the community through the timbres of different instrumental and electronic duets. The performance concludes with Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award-winning composer William Bolcom's Afternoon Cakewalk which harkens back to an earlier time with a series of lively and amusing rags.
