STEVEN MACKEY electric guitar

It takes two: sparks fly in a pair of double concertos, one contemporary and one classic. NJSO Concertmaster Eric Wyrick does double duty alongside composer and guitarist Steven Mackey and, in Bach’s splendid Double Concerto, with the 2017 senior winner of the Sphinx Competition.

WEBER Overture to Oberon
Exciting and suspenseful; based on a medieval story of an Elf King who must search the globe for one faithful human couple. 

MACKEY Four Iconoclastic Episodes
“Music driven by energy, motion and joy of playing.” Mackey’s eclectic piece for violin and electric guitar includes hints of Radiohead, Chicago blues and much more.

BACH Concerto for Two Violins
Riveting and inspiring; its achingly lovely second movement was unforgettably featured in Children of a Lesser God as actress Marlee Matlin “heard” music. 

BEETHOVEN Leonore Overture No. 3
Beethoven’s heroic and triumphant overture tells the story of his only opera, Fidelio, bringing this palindrome concert to a delightful close.
