What is Art? A UMD Wind Orchestra Performance

When: Sunday, October 13, 2013 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Where: Clarice Smith PAC : Dekelboum Concert Hall
Event Type(s): Concert

The UMD Wind Orchestra opens its season with a program that includes Stanislaw Skrowaczyewski's Music for Winds, as well as works by Webern, Lampe and Ruggles that exemplify the high-art ideals and modernist style embodied in Skrowaczyewski's work.

Music for Winds is a symphony without strings. The composer says, "The listener may find the character or tone of the piece to be sad, mysterious or even tragic. This could be my own reaction to the state of our world, in which great art is slowly disappearing and being replaced by superficial 'semi-culture.'"

The program will also include Webern's Concerto, op. 24, Lampe's Serenade, Alec Wilder's Kindergarten Flower Pageant and Ruggles' Angels.
