Ensemble: NEC Symphony
Conductors: Earl Lee; David Loebel
This season, NEC's orchestra programs allow you to discover the music of living composers, alongside familiar masterworks.

In addition to the Brahms, tonight's program features works led by conducting major Earl Lee, who is now assistant conductor of the Toronto Symphony.

David Schiff’s Stomp was commissioned for Marin Alsop’s Concordia Orchestra in 1990. When composing this piece, Schiff drew inspiration from funk icon James Brown; listen for the rhythm in the beginning of piece that’s based on Brown’s famous tune “I Feel Good!” Schiff also references Brown in a note to the instrumentalists on the score of the music reading “Every instrument is treated like a drum.” Since its debut, Stomp has been played by numerous orchestras, including the LA Philharmonic, who took it to high schools to demonstrate that classical music can be really loud.
