Meadows Wind Ensemble: In the Beginning . . .

When: 
Friday, October 5, 2018 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

In the Beginning . . . will open with (what else?!) A Big Bang – the world premiere of a fanfare for brass and percussion by Meadows composer Alex Shawver. It seems only fitting that our Big Bang be followed by Darius Milhaud’s classic from 1923, La création du monde – the first work to successfully combine jazz with so-called “classical” elements. Gershwin, who is also represented in the MWE’s 2018-19 season, often gets credit for this with his iconic Rhapsody in Blue, but Milhaud actually beat him to the punch by one year. The program will also include performances of two works inspired by La creation …: a second world premiere by Alex Shawver, his ominously titled The Destruction of the World, and Aaron Copland’s seldom-performed Music for the Theatre. Both works pay homage to Milhaud stylistically, and even mirror his form and instrumentation to a degree. For fans of “fusion” music, this is a definite can’t-miss concert!
