This new composition – featuring Denyce Graves (mezzo-soprano) and Jeffrey Biegel (pianist and project coordinator), with the DSO – is co-commissioned by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, with generous support of the Norma and Don Stone New Music Fund, and the Billy Rose Foundation and the American Composers Forum.
Other selections will include Mozart's Overture to Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro), Jeffrey Biegel's Reflection of Justice: An Ode to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Wagner's Overture to Der fliegende Holländer (The Flying Dutchman).
