Horizons: Beethoven + Skye

Horizons: Beethoven + SkyeLos Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Led by Music Director Jaime Martín, Presents World Premiere of Derrick Skye’s LACO-Commissioned To Be A Horizon and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), under the baton of Music Director Jaime Martín, presents the world premiere of Artistic Advisor Derrick Skye’s To Be A Horizon, on Saturday, April 20, 2024, 8 pm, at Glendale’s Alex Theatre, and Sunday, April 21, 2024, 7 pm, at UCLA’s Royce Hall. Skye describes his LACO-commissioned work as “a musical travelogue that integrates musical practices from numerous cultures into a Western classical setting.”

The program, featuring works that unifies, continues with Assistant Concertmaster Tereza Stanislav and Principal Viola Yura Lee sharing their stellar artistry as soloists on Mozart’s searingly beautiful Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat major for violin and viola. Beethoven’s transitional Symphony No. 4, a work celebrating Beethoven’s legacy of breaking musical boundaries and noted for its cheerfulness, caps the concert.

Skye’s To Be A Horizon combines formal western classical music with West African music and dance, Persian music theory, Balkan music theory, and Hindustani classical music. The American-born composer is himself of Ghanaian, Nigerian, British, Irish, and Native American ancestry, and he seeks to create a new American music aesthetic reflective of his and the country’s diversity. To Be A Horizon is Part 3 of a larger orchestral suite entitled Prisms, Cycles, Leaps that bridges the space between multiple music cultures.
