What will a classic be in 50 years? in 100 years?
The Minnesota Orchestra bets on the classics of the future with their week-long Composer Institute. Hundreds of submissions came in and seven emerging composers were chosen, their pieces performed by the Minnesota Orchestra and Osmo Vanska.
You can listen to the concert plus commentary from the composers at ClassicalMPR.org FOR ONE WEEK ONLY beginning tomorrow.
Don't miss it: atmospheric music about the seasons, a Satie-esque piece based on "The Little Prince," as well as a visceral flying experience, fire, obscure poeticals forms and more.
