Janácek Philharmonic Ostrava – Morton Feldman: Major Orchestral Works

The 100-piece Janácek Philharmonic Ostrava (Czech Republic) comes to New York to perform an evening of Morton Feldman’s orchestra music, conducted by Petr Kotik. Highlights will include the American premieres of the hour-long Violin and Orchestra and Flute and Orchestra, 35 years after their creation. The program also includes Structures for Orchestra, and the lyrical Piano and Orchestra. The soloists are the acclaimed pianist Joseph Kubera, a long time associate of Feldman and Cage; flutist Erin Lesser; and Czech violinist Hana Kotková, whose performances of concertos by Ligeti, Rihm and Francesconi have been celebrated internationally.
