- Joel Friedman: When the World Disintegrates Before Your Eyes for solo viola featuring Derek Smith, principal violist, New Orchestra of Washington (NoW) (East Coast Premiere)
The New Orchestra of Washington makes music relevant to new generations of audiences through virtuosic performances representing diverse genres, with fresh interpretations of classic works. Unconstrained by the structure or repertoire of traditional orchestras, the DC-based ensemble was founded in 2012 and programs inspiring, memorable concerts that are neither strictly classical nor purely academic. Program includes the East Coast premiere of Georgetown University Music Program Professor Joel Friedman’s When the World Disintegrates Before Your Eyes for solo viola, John B. Hedges’ Clarinet Sonatina “Gumbo” (2008), and Mozart’s “Kegelstatt” Trio in E-flat, K498.
