In the Spotlight: Trimpin, Stiefel & More

Octave 9 >

Former Seattle Symphony Composer in Residence and a master sound sculpture, composer and MacArthur “Genius,” Trimpin is most known for creating sound installations at intersection of music and visual art. His diverse influences come together in his work Solo Flute, Eight Pottery Wheels and Assorted Vinyls. Andrew Stiefel’s Five Ways to Listen to a Mockingbird transforms the mockingbird's stolen song into a series of meditations on our changing cities and landscapes. To conclude the evening, you’ll experience two dynamic percussion works performed by Seattle Symphony guests, the arx duo.

Featuring Seattle Symphony musicians and guests

In the Spotlight: Schoenberg & Bach

Octave 9 >

Few works of art have cultivated beauty and rationality with such devotion and patience as the compositions on this program. Starting with Schoenberg’s Woodwind Quintet, the first great product of his revolutionary new method that allowed 45 minutes of pristine music to evolve organically out of a single series of 12 pitches in ways that continually inspires a keen listener’s sense of memory and expectation. Two centuries earlier, Bach produced a similar ode to reason in his “Goldberg Variations,” a composition that extracts from the humblest of songs an hour’s worth of kaleidoscopic possibilities, including every manner of canon and counterpoint.

Featuring Seattle Symphony musicians

J.S. BACH: “Goldberg Variations,” BWV 988 for String Trio
