The UT Symphony Orchestra Presents The American Premiere Of Emilie Mayer's Symphony No. 4
The University of Tennessee Symphony Orchestra will present the American premiere of Emilie Mayer's Symphony No.4 in B minor, Sunday, September 19th at 4pm. The concert will be presented in Cox Auditorium in the Alumni Memorial Building, which is located on the UTK campus and will be open to the public, masks required. However, if one is not comfortable attending a live event, a livestream option is available and can be accessed at https://livestream.com/accounts/9869375/events/9810057.
The title of the concert is Unfinished Business, which Maestro Fellenbaum explains in this interview with Morning Concert host, Melony Dodson. Emilie Mayer is a Romantic-era composer who lived from 1812 to 1883. A prolific composer, she wrote eight symphonies, seven orchestral overtures, an opera, piano solos, and many many chamber works. Although she was successful during her lifetime, much of her music was never published and she fell into relative obscurity after her death. Although her Symphony No.4 has been performed in Europe, it has never been performed in America, so Sunday's concert will be the American premiere of this dramatic piece of music.
