This concert, brings many firsts to the concert hall. Embrace: Concerto for Electric Violin by Kenji Bunch will have its West Coast premiere and will be the first time the ASO has featured electric violin in a Classic Concert. Co-commissioned by Musica Nova, the ASO commissioning club, and nine other orchestras, Embrace showcases electric violinist Tracy Silverman considered to be the “the greatest living exponent of the electric violin.”
Formerly first violinist with the innovative Turtle Island String Quartet, Silverman was named by The Juilliard School as one of its 100 distinguished alumni. Embrace is an exciting new piece described by its composer as “an interactive performance work conceived and written in the spirit of what I consider the most powerful new medium of orchestra performing of the 21st century: the orchestra ‘flash mob’.” Also on the Electric Nights program are Ravel’s tribute piece, Le Tombeau de Couperin and the ASO’s premiere performance of Schumann’s heroic and large-scaled work - Symphony No. 4.
