Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at the DePaul University School of Music

November 6, 2018 | 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Dodging war and chasing riches, top European composers like Hungary’s Miklós Rózsa, Italy’s Nino Rota and Germany’s Franz Waxman immigrated to America and helped to fuel Hollywood’s golden age. Their concert music shows off the evocative tone painting and craftsmanship that made their film scores so indispensable to Hitchcock, Fellini and Coppola, among others. Soloists Ksenija Sidorova and Avi Avital each bring modern glitz and glamor to their old-world instruments, whether playing a reconfigured Bach concerto or debuting the brand-new work written for them by Golden Globe®, GRAMMY® and Emmy® nominated British composer Benjamin Wallfisch. This Orpheus commission is the latest addition to American Notes, a project that explores the landscape of new music from diverse perspectives.
