JAYCE OGREN CONDUCTS ORCHESTRA 2001 IN TOWARDS THE FLAME: AMERICAN LUMINARIES

“Towards the Flame: American Luminaries” is a collection of pieces that represents the incredible diversity and vitality of contemporary classical music today. With one piece dating  from the 1990s and four from the 21st Century, all of these works are scored for versions of the Pierrot ensemble (flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano, plus percussion), first used by Arnold Schoenberg in 1912, but still the most commonly used instrumentation in modern music.

Orchestra 2001 is a collective of adventurous, virtuoso performers dedicated to the music of our time. Visit us at our new home on Cherry Street Pier on the Delaware River!

Philadelphia – From the Caribbean steel drum inspired textures of Andy Akiho’s Erase to the kaleidoscopic, Chinese influenced flourishes of Lei Liang’s Aural Hypothesis, wide-ranging cultural influences run deep throughout this program conducted by Jayce Ogren. Shawn Allison’s Towards the Flame and Sean Shepherd’s Lumens are exciting contributions by two of the most talented young composers today, and finally, we pay tribute to Lee Hyla – who passed away in 2014 – with his wry and meditative Ciao, Manhattan.
