IPO concert to feature composer-in-residence

The Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra’s Nov. 18 concert marks the first of three world premieres by its most recently minted Composer-in-Residence, Oswald Huỳnh, “Then, as if breathing, the sea swelled beneath us.”

The concert will feature IPO Concertmaster Azusa Tashiro on Astor Piazzolla’s “The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.”

The evening will close with Mozart’s “Gran Partita,” which offers a glorious explosion of classical-era Harmoniemusik for small wind ensembles and is the most famous piece written for this combination of instruments.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are available here.
