Tomorrow, Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 8:00 EDT (GMT -5) the Detroit Symphony Orchestra will present a live concert webcast featuring guitarist Sharon Isbin. The program will include Vivaldi’s Concerto for Lute and Orchestra in D major (R. 93), and new music from Chris Brubeck, Affinity: Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra. You can read the program notes for the Brubeck concerto here. Chris Brubeck is the son of jazz great Dave Brubeck. You can see the webcast at this link.
The program will conclude with a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No 10 as completed by musicologist Deryck Cooke. Leonard Slatkin will conduct. Mahler had completed a draft of the symphony, but most of it was not orchestrated at the time of his death. Mahler fans may be interested in this 1960 BBC broadcast recording featuring a lecture by Cooke and a performance of his first (incomplete) version of the symphony’s reconstruction.
