HAYDN D MAJOR CONCERTO

NEW CADENZAS BY JESSIE MONTGOMERY

AVAILABLE FOR PERFORMANCE IN THE '14-'15 SEASON AND BEYOND

Performed with the Hilton Head Symphony, Youth Orchestras of san Antonio, and Delphi Chamber Orchestra/

Ms. Lamprea recently commissioned Sphinx Composer-in-Residence Jessie Montgomery to write cadenzas for the Haydn Cello Concerto in D Major. Performances in 2014 include the Delphi Chamber Orchestra, Hilton Head Symphony, and a 5-city tour in the United States and Canada with the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio.

Christine writes "When I first heard Jessie's music on the Sphinx Virtuosi Fall 2013 tour, I was curious to learn more about her take on composition as an active performer in addition to composer. Her new cadenzas are fresh, avant-garde, yet informed and related to the rest of the concerto. I've learned more about the concerto after collaborating and discussing what she took from the piece, and I am so lucky to work with such an exciting, compelling new voice to add a new experience to the Haydn D Major Cello Concerto."
