CONDUCTOR FINALIST

MISSY MAZZOLI
River Rouge Transfiguration

BLOCH
Schelomo; Hebraic Rhapsody
Gary Hoffman, cello

MENDELSSOHN
Symphony No. 3 in A minor ‘Scottish’

Inspired by her travels through the industrial landscape of Detroit and the silhouette of the River Rouge Auto Plant, Missy Mazzoli’s River Rouge Transfiguration transforms the grit and noise of Motor City into a resonant and unexpected work for orchestra. World-renowned cellist Gary Hoffman joins LexPhil as soloist for composer Ernest Bloch’s Schelomo; Hebraic Rhapsody, a work that embodies the the spirit and sound of traditional Jewish music dating back thousands of years. The evening closes with Mendelssohn’s melodic Symphony No. 3, “Scottish,” his masterwork inspired by his travels as a young composer through Scotland.
