The Reser and Oregon Symphony Present: “Of Love” – A Personal Requiem

This listing is provided by Tualatin Valley

The violinist and composer Curtis Stewart spent four years caring for his cancer-stricken mother, a composer and violinist herself. His latest album, of Love., is a personal requiem and tender tribute to his mother’s memory. This concert brings together excerpts from Stewart’s album and Grieg’s buoyant yet nostalgic Holberg Suite, and also features Missy Mazzoli’s gothic and shadowy violin concerto, Dark with Excessive Bright.
