Mackey's guitar duelled and danced with Marwood's violin in an enchanting score that manages to suggest the rhetoric of popular music - repeated chords; simple harmony - with the means of classical without compromising the latter.
The past collides with the present during a pair of Double Concertos as presented by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, its fearless leader Xian Zhang and special guest performers Eric Wyrick (Orpheus Chamber Orchestra violinist & NJSO concertmaster), Annelle Gregory (Laureate of the Stradivarius International Violin Competition) and Steven Mackey (former Composer in Residence at Tanglewood and electric guitarist extraordinaire).
The program begins with Weber's Overture to Oberon, a romantic three act opera first performed in London in 1826, before the ensemble performs Mackey's very own Four Iconoclastic Epsiodes, a double concerto for electric guitar, violin and orchestra. Its youthful exuberance and kinetic, spirited movements revel in the joy of playing whilst also exploring darker effects and moments that come with time and old age.
This is followed by what is considered to be one of Bach's most notable works and a champion of the late Baroque style, the Concerto for Two Violins. The evening comes to a rousing close with Beethoven's Leonore Overture No. 3, a thrilling operatic work that embodies the composer's favorite themes of love and liberty within the tale of heroine Leonore and her love for her imprisoned husband Florestan.
