What's on stage at Baltimore Theatre Project:
Do you wanna build a snowman? Come in from the cold and build one with the SONAR new music ensemble in their winter program Frozen. For this concert, SONAR has commissioned leading Canadian-American composer Robert Baker to write a new work for solo violin and ensemble inspired by Antonio Vivaldi's Winter from the Four Seasons. The new piece draws from Vivaldi's descriptive and inventive music and spins out into an entirely new piece. Artistic Director and Founder Colin Sorgi will premiere the new concerto with ensemble members and guest artists providing the faux-continuo. Sharing the program is Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen's exhilarating masterwork Schnee (Snow) from 2008. Inspired by the multiple-voice canons of J.S. Bach, Schnee is a set of five pairs of canons for large ensemble – each pair it's own crystalline form of pure, white, swirling snow-flakes. Within the past five years, Schee has become one of the most celebrated ensemble works of our time, never before heard in Baltimore but the perfect way to celebrate what is sure to be another brisk winter.
