Join us on Tuesday, March 16 at 1:00 PM PT for our MUSICWISE Series when your Las Vegas Philharmonic presents a Facebook live broadcast with Music Director Donato Cabrera and American composer, Nathaniel Stookey.
Having collaborated with some of the world’s greatest orchestras, Stookey’s The Composer is Dead is one of the five most performed classical works of the 21st century. His orchestral work, Mahlerwerk (2011) was commissioned by NDR-Sinfonie (Hamburg) for the final concert of their centennial Mahler cycle, was premiered under Christoph Eschenbach before an audience of 10,000. The Schleswig-Holsteiner Zeitung describes this “crazy puzzle” as an “intelligent, musically very appealing, even exhilarating homage to Gustav Mahler.”
Profiled in the January 2009 issue of Strings Magazine as a leader among the “Next Generation of String Composers,” Stookey, himself a violinist, has continued to produce a rich body of chamber music, with works featured on series and festivals in the U.S., U.K., Italy, and Germany.
