Baldwin Scores: A Unique Concert Program from Symphony of the Vines
Symphony of the Vines is thrilled to present a special orchestra concert on April 15th consisting entirely of works created by renowned contemporary American composer Daniel Baldwin. Dr. Baldwin hits the compositional “sweet spot” with music that is both original and accessible in style and tone. His compositions are performed worldwide and he is continuously commissioned for new works. [Learn more about him and his music at http://www.danielbaldwincomposer.net] The Symphony of the Vines program will include concertos for horn, contrabassoon, piano, and a newly composed work for music director Greg Magie (horn) and his wife Hilary Clark (cello), as well as compositions for solely for orchestra.
The contrabassoon is one of the most unique, and the lowest pitched instrument of the orchestra. Baldwin’s Concerto for Contrabassoon is “dramatic, beautiful, and aggressive.” Our guest contrabassoonist is Matthew Morris, and you can hear him playing the “regular” bassoon at this website: https://www.allmusic.com/album/samplings-new-music-for-bassoon-piano-mw0002861912
The Concerto for Piano and chamber orchestra will be performed by Tammy Miller, piano. Baldwin describes the work as “sparkling, energetic, heavily jazz and rock influenced.” You can learn more about Tammy here: http://www.omahacm.org/artist-faculty/tammy-miller
The “dramatic and cinematic” Horn Concerto will be performed by UCSB’s Steve Gross, featured as a Symphony of the Vines soloist in the past, and who also regularly performs with the Vines orchestra. You can hear an example of his fine horn playing at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAqXqASivcI
The work Baldwin is composing for Magie and Clark is “in the style of a romantic concerto.” Hilary Clark is a regular performer, soloist, and recitalist for Symphony of the Vines. This will be Dr. Magie’s solo horn debut with the orchestra.
The orchestra will perform Azalan, a work for chamber orchestra described as “tribal, dramatic, and ethnic.”
You will be treated to music that you won’t hear anywhere else on the central coast, including several world premieres. We hope to see you all on Sunday, April 15, 3pm at the Park Ballroom, 1232 Park Street, Paso Robles.
Greg Magie, DMA
