Washington Philharmonic Concerts

February 11 @ 3:00 pm - February 18 @ 3:00 pm

Don’t miss this VERY SPECIAL concert celebrating American composers.
Sunday February 11  3 pm Church of the Epiphany (DC)

Sunday February 18  3 pm George Washington Masonic National Memorial (Alexandria)

Composition Competition Winner and Grammy-nominated American Composer Zhou Tian Broken Ink, movements 1,2, and 5:
1) Hearing the Sound of the Rain and the Bell
2) Watching the Tidal Bore
5) Listening to the Land

William Grant Still, Symphony No 4
Mark Edwards Wilson, Piano Concerto, Thomas Pandolfi, Piano

The Philharmonic introduces three outstanding works by American Composers. Often compared to Copland’s music, the music in William Grant Still’s rarely performed and completely enjoyable Symphony #4 combines beautiful and lyrical melodies with stately and majestic phrases that, in his words, “represent the spirit of the American people.” For the second work, WMP teams with acclaimed pianist Thomas Pandolfi to present a WMP premiere of local composer Mark Edwards Wilson’s brilliant and lyrical Piano Concerto. This gorgeous concerto delights with flowing melodies and virtuoso variations. This concert also includes this season’s WMPA Composition Competition Winner, Zhou Tian’s Broken Inka multi-movement meditation on Song Dynasty poetry that combines Chinese traditions with the lushness and power of a Western symphony orchestra.
