Concerto for Orchestra


Composed by Rachel Grimes, Angélica Negrón, Shara Nova, Caroline Shaw, and Sarah Kirkland Snider on a text by Carolyn Forché, Blue Hour seeks the precious individual in the rush of the difficulties of life on our Earth.

Béla Bartók’s massive Concerto For Orchestra is his last completed work and is a wondrous celebration of life that vibrantly showcases various instruments and instrument groups from start to finish.
