PULITZER PRIZE COMPOSER FESTIVAL WITH JOSEPH SCHWANTNER
Joseph Schwantner is one of this country’s most prominent composers. Revered as a gifted orchestral colorist, his dramatic and unique music is admired for its deft implementation of luminous color and fluctuating rhythms. Several of his concert pieces have become classics and some of the most-performed large ensemble works of the last forty years. Shenandoah New Music welcomes and celebrates Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Joseph Schwanter with two concerts featuring works ranging from intricate chamber pieces to evocative classic masterworks for large ensembles.
