Albany Symphony presents Pictures At An Exhibition

When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.
Where: Palace Theatre
Cost: $20-$60

Pre-Concert Talk is at 6:30PM in the Palace Theatre. This celebration of the visual arts includes Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition," and a thrilling recent violin concerto by Michael Daugherty. Michael Daugherty's "Fire and Blood" is a riveting concerto of violin and orchestra inspired by the murals that Diego Rivera painted in the Detroit Institute of Art in the early 1930s on a commission from Edsel Ford. The violin concerto evokes the world of Rivera, his wife, the remarkable Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo, and the ideas behind the murals called "Detroit Industry." Daugherty scored a huge triumph this season with the Albany Symphony premiere of his piano concerto, "Deux ex Machina," and "Fire and Blood," premiered by the Detroit Symphony in 2003, is an equally powerful, accessible work. The phenomenal American violinist, Ida Kavafian, for whom the work was written, joins the orchestra as soloist. The concert opens with a work by a brilliant young Mexican composer, Gabriela Ortiz. The daughter of famous Mexican folk musicians, Ms. Ortiz blends indigenous Mexican culture and heritage into her elegant, colorful music.
