MusicaNova Orchestra performs an uplifting concert of renewal, shared humanity, and strength of purpose. Alfred Schnittke’s Moz-Art à la Haydn opens the concert with musicians entering the stage one by one (social distancing!) and riffing on an unfinished pantomime by Mozart. Svitani (which means “dawn” in Czech), by written by rising young composer Quinn Mason for MusicaNova, focuses on renewal, rebirth, and hope. Graham Cohen’s Gamelan for String Orchestra recreates the sound of Indonesian percussion ensembles. And the concert bookends with Haydn’s Farewell Symphony, in which the musicians leave the stage one by one.
