Part of the 2013–2014 Fellows Presentation Series

David W. Sanford, a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute, will discuss his most recent orchestral composition in the context of several earlier pieces. The work, which is a commission for the Boston Modern Orchestra Project with funding by the Fromm Foundation, is a reconciliation of the composer’s interests in the visually intoxicating atmospheres of groundbreaking cinematography and more traditional linear polyphony.   

There will be a brief reception at 5:30 p.m., open to people attending Sanford’s fellow’s presentation and the performance by the Pittsburgh Collective, a 20-piece contemporary big band he directs.
