SSO Red Balloon Series: Rhythms, Rites and Renewals
3 May 2019, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Aube (Asian premiere)
Threshold for solo timpani, two percussion and orchestra (Asian premiere)
The Rite of Spring
Threshold for percussion and orchestra was written by LA Philharmonic Principal timpanist Joseph Pereira, requiring six timpani and a vast array of percussion instruments ordinary and extraordinary. Don’t miss this heart-pounding, eye-opening Asian premiere featuring our own Principal Timpanist Christian Schioler, and guest percussion duo Maraca2. Contemporary music champion Pascal Rophé leads the SSO in his French compatriot Jean-Frederic Neuburger’s dawn-inspired reverie, Aube, closing with Stravinsky’s revolutionary Rite of Spring.
