Movement has always held great power, both in physical form and as a means to change. Opening this all-American program, Reuben Blundell conducts the New York premiere of Sam Wu’s Wind Map, a musical exploration of Van-Gogh-esque charts that map the movement of air. Margaret Bonds’s Montgomery Variations, a powerful tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr., the Civil Rights movement, and the city of Montgomery, AL, closes each performance. Each night also features a different showpiece: Samuel Barber’s true-to-self Violin Concerto with Camille Enderlin, and David Baker’s jazz-influenced Concert Piece for Trombone and Orchestra with Matthew Stewart.
