Classical Music | Juilliard Orchestra Composers Concert

Concerts, February 28, 2019, 02/28/2019, Juilliard Orchestra Composers Concert

Thursday, February 28, 2019, 7:30 pm


Jeffrey Milarsky conducts the Juilliard Orchestra in four world premieres by Juilliard graduate student composers Amelia Brey, Jonathan Cziner, Jordyn Gallinek, and Trey Makler. The program features Trey Makler's Rose Thorn Bud (2018); Jonathan Cziner's Flowers of Fire (2018) with soprano Kathleen O’Mara; Amelia Brey’s JUST - ! (2018); and Jordyn Gallinek’s Berserker (2018). Makler’s piece rose thorn bud was awarded the 2019 Arthur Friedman Prize, presented to the composer whose work is deemed to be most outstanding; this year’s judges were composers Dan Welcher and Syd Hodkinson.

About the Performers
Amelia Brey’s works have been performed by Ensemble Dal Niente, soprano Alexandra Porter and pianist J.J. Penna, LAM House Ensemble, and the Texas Tech Wind Quintet. Hailing from Tallahassee, Fla., Brey studied with Michael Slayton and Stan Link at Vanderbilt University.

Jonathan Cziner's music combines colorful harmony and texture with nostalgic lyricism, creating a sound-world that ranges from dark and mysterious to vibrant. His recent awards include a 2018 Charles Ives Scholarship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the 2018 William Schuman Prize for most outstanding score at the BMI student composers awards, and two consecutive Palmer Dixon prizes, awarded to the most outstanding composition at Juilliard. Cziner’s orchestral work, Resonant Bells, was recently performed by both the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and the Minnesota Orchestra.

Jordyn Gallinek's works have been performed throughout the U.S. and South Korea, where the Oregon Wind Quintet took her piece on tour after it won the 2018 Texas A&M Chamber Music Competition. She has been commissioned by the Femmelody Chamber Collective and the Cassatt String Quartet as a member of the Seal Bay Festival, and she has had readings of her works by the Manhattan Symphonie, Sylvan Winds, and NYU Symphony Orchestra.

Trey Makler’s most recent opera collaboration, Let Them Eat Cake, with librettist Ted Malawer, premiered at National Sawdust in Brooklyn as part of Juilliard’s Opera-Comp project. Makler has received commissions from the Sheldon Concert Hall and Galleries, Mizzou New Music Initiative, and Vox Nova (Columbia, Missouri). His music has been featured at the Oh My Ears New Music Marathon, Charlotte New Music Festival, Oregon Bach Festival Composers Symposium, and Mizzou International Composers Festival, and as part of the Boston New Music Initiative’s 2015-2016 season.

Free tickets available at the Juilliard and Alice Tully Hall box offices.
