Discover New Worlds -
Baris Perker joins Lexington Symphony on April 1, 2017

 

LLRFF is delighted to invite you to a special treat on April 1, 2017: The Lexington Symphony will feature Baris Perker, a Boston-based composer, who has won numerous prizes for his compositions. His music has been received with great acclaim for his eloquent and masterful orchestration with an expressive and colorful melodic exploration weaving together jazz elements with oriental rhythmic construction.

The concert will also include well-known pieces from Sibelius and Dvorak. 
 

Discover New Worlds


April 1, 2017 | Saturday, 8pm

One of the things that excite Music Director Jonathan McPhee about this program is the fact that all of the music evokes strong visual imagery and emotions through very different styles. Sibelius was a master at writing brooding tone poems that call to mind his Finnish homeland. Turkish composer Baris Perker, who now resides in the U.S., brings a compelling voice to his tone poem that is brimming with style and movement. Dvořák’s New World Symphony — his description of America through the eyes of a visitor immersed in our culture in the late 1800s — needs no further introduction.
