Dominion Energy Casual Fridays: Mason Bates: World Première

A laid back evening with a world-renowned composer? Yes, please!

His music enlivens imaginative narrative forms with novel orchestral writing, the harmonies of jazz and the rhythms of techno, and it has been the first symphonic music to receive widespread acceptance for its unique integration of electronic sounds. It’s the perfect start to your Friday night! Relax with a drink and let the evening’s host, along with the conductor, take you behind the scenes of the music.

This performance is in partnership with the 2019 Commemoration, AMERICAN EVOLUTION™.

Richmond Symphony Casual Fridays

Take an evening off, and enjoy timeless music and cocktails with us. This Casual Fridays Concert features “Pictures from an Exhibition – A Remembrance of Viktor Hartmann”; a suite of ten pieces (plus a recurring, varied Promenade) composed for the piano by Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky in 1874. In 1874 an exhibition of Hartmann’s pictures was organized in the Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg. Mussorgsky went to the exhibition and was inspired to compose his piano piece. The suite is Mussorgsky’s most famous piano composition and has become a showpiece for virtuoso pianists. It has become further known through various orchestrations and arrangements produced by other musicians and composers.
