Frost Symphony Orchestra—Metamorphosen, Tribute to Gregory Cardi

Gerard Schwarz, conductor

Join the Frost Symphony Orchestra for the passionate and beautiful performance in memory of Frost School student Gregory Cardi, who most recently served as the orchestra’s associate conductor. Enjoy the Lyric for Strings by George Walker, the first Black composer to win the Pulitzer Prize. Listen to Richard Strauss’s last masterwork called Metamorphosen, composed during the closing months of World War II. Finally, take delight in Rodion Shchedrin’s Carmen Suite String and Percussion. The Soviet authorities later forbade its performance because they thought it was too erotic and disrespectful to Bizet's Great Opera. Tune in for the Frost teaching assistants’ commentary that will reveal even more facts about every composition before each performance starts.
