The Philharmonic Society of Orange County presents the U.S. West Coast premiere of Frieze by Mark-Antony Turnage. Co-commissioned by the RPS, BBC Radio 3 and New York Philharmonic, Frieze was given its world priemiere in August 2013 by the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain at the BBC Proms. The work takes its name from the Beethoven Frieze, a painting by Gustav Klimt inspired by Beethoven’s iconic Ninth Symphony, which will also be performed as part of the evening’s program.
Dean Corey’s final concert as President and Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Society is a collective celebration of Orange County, bringing in the Orange County Youth Symphony Orchestra, piano soloist Marc Yu, and choirs from UC Irvine and Chapman University.
