The Metropolitan Orchestra (TMO) with Chief Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams are thrilled to once again feature a world premiere work from Australian Composer Jim Coyle in their dramatic final Met Concert of the year on October 27th.
The vibrant and enthusiastic work titled “Dancing with Billy Bray” is the second Coyle World Premiere to be featured by TMO. Contrary to the vibrant optimism of the Coyle piece is Elgar’s contemplative and sorrowful Cello Concerto. TMO will introduce one of its formidable principal players, Ezmi Pepper, to perform this dramatic work for cello.
To complete the rollercoaster of musical emotion will be Franck’s radical Symphony in D. Often regarded as one of the most significant nineteenth-century French symphonies ever written, this impressive work will present a dramatically unique conclusion to The Metropolitan Orchestra’s triumphant 2018 Met concert season.
