Troy Savings Bank Music Hall
Troy, New York
Sunday, 20 May 2012 - 7:30 PM
Legendary conductor George Szell proclaimed the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall the most acoustically perfect concert hall in the nation. This concert will feature eight newly commissioned works by young composers, all celebrating the grand legacy of one of the world’s great concert halls.

“If These Walls Could Sing”
The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall opened its doors on April 19th, 1875, celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the battles of Lexington and Concord – the “shot heard ’round the world.” Conductor George Szell proclaimed the hall the most acoustically perfect concert hall in the nation. This concert will feature eight new commissioned works by young composers, all celebrating the grand legacy of one of the world’s great concert halls. In keeping of the theme of celebrating the Hall, the concert will feature solo, chamber and large ensemble works all played throughout the hall – antiphonally from the balconies and in the lobbies as well as on the stage – all taking their inspiration from the countless legendary artists who have performed in the hall and the composers (some famous, some forgotten) whose names adorn the doors to the boxes. The concert is sponsored by the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall Foundation.

The concert will include a “behind the scenes” tour of this architectural and cultural treasure. Tours will begin at 5:30PM at the Music Hall. You must have a ticket to enter the Hall for a tour.

In addition, the concert will feature a world-premiere performance by the Doyle Middle School Band and Chorus of a work co-composed with Missy Mazzoli. Students at the middle school have been working with Missy for seven months to write a piece inspired by the great history of Troy, NY and the magnificent Music Hall. Check out the project blog.

Lured by the Horizon (2005) for Orchestra is in five movements or “snapshots” of the Pacific Northwest. It was premiered by the University of Michigan Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Nikolas Caoile on 14 March, 2006 at Hill Auditorium (Ann Arbor, Michigan).

Growth examines the adaptability, hopeful nature, and adventurous spirit of the people who lived in the region during the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-centuries. Since the 1840s and into the present, people have moved west with the hope of building a better life. This led to boomtowns throughout the region during the gold rush period (1848-56) and logging camps during the Depression-era (1929-41). My own maternal grandparents left Minnesota for Southwest Washington in the late 1930s, while my paternal grandparents left Missouri in the mid-1940s.

Rust is based on a set of photographs taken by the composer in 2004 that examine the contrast between the rich, natural beauty of the region with evidence of the dire economic depression that follows the collapse of an exploitative industry. Images of oxidizing machinery enmeshed by thorny brambles are especially evocative of these ideas.

Currents considers the Columbia River Basin that extends from Oregon to Canada, and from the Pacific Ocean to Idaho; it provides food, commerce, hydroelectric power, and recreational entertainment for the region. The river’s magnificent beauty and surprisingly treacherous undercurrents inspire two musical motives that guide the listener through the movement.

Cut focuses on the dual nature of the logging industry as both an employer of thousands of people and the catalyst for severe environmental changes in the region. This drama is underscored by juxtaposing a dissonant harmonic language against stark woodwind interjections and string pizzicati.

Return is inspired by my emotional reactions to photographs I took in 2004 of abandoned barns being re-absorbed by nature. Framed within a tonal harmonic language, I combine musical materials from the previous four movements to evoke how the end of one entity can foster and enrich that which follows.

This piece was generously funded by a Predoctoral Fellowship granted by the University of Michigan Horace H. Rackham Graduate School. It is lovingly dedicated to my parents, Carl and Linda Reinkemeyer. Duration: ca. 15:15.
