Kate Moore, Schumann & Bartók
- Kate Moore Splintered rivers (world premiere)
- Robert Schumann Cello Concerto
- Béla Bartók Concert for Orchestra
The early December concert opens with surprising worlds of sound by Kate Moore, the Australian composer who continued her studies in The Hague and received the Matthijs Vermeulen Prize in 2017. This is followed by Robert Schumann's Cello Concerto steeped in feverish turmoil and dark forebodings, a bow to the hand of Austrian-Iranian cellist Kian Soltani. Finally, the fraught Concert for Orchestra, composed in 1943 by Béla Bartók, who had emigrated to the US.
