Australian Chamber Orchestra

Zankel Hall
A new work by Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, a devotee of classical music, and Prokofiev’s witty piano miniatures arranged for orchestra provide contrasts to two Classical-era favorites: Haydn’s bubbly Symphony No. 83, “The Hen,” and Mozart’s beloved Clarinet Concerto. The Times (London) said of clarinetist Martin Fröst, “His virtuosity lies in his exceptional dexterity and agility … and in his daring control of the instrument’s dynamic and expressive extremes.”

The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
