Alexander Eisenberg


This concert boasts two new masterpieces! We commissioned and will perform the world premiere of the Violin Concerto by noted local composer, Henry Mollicone.

“The new concerto consists of two fast bravura movements, and two slow melodic movements. I have mainly composed operas, songs, and orchestral works, so this was the first time I have had the opportunity to write a concerto, and it was a very enjoyable experience,” the composer writes. “I am looking forward to hearing it come to life for the first time with Redwood Symphony under Maestro Kujawsky’s baton, with our wonderful soloist Alex Eisenberg.”

Mr. Eisenberg will also be performing an exciting showpiece of tunes from the opera Carmen, by classic film composer Franz Waxman (“Sunset Boulevard,” “Stalag 17,” “Rear Window,” and “Rebecca”).

Mason Bates has very quickly established himself at the forefront of America’s younger generation of composers. Alternative Energy is a delightful, surprisingly traditional, four-movement symphony that incorporates electronica and other sounds of contemporary dance music, as well as a percussion section that features instruments constructed from spare car parts!

Assistant Conductor Kristin Link will open this exciting program with Berlioz’s beloved Roman Carnival Overture.

Maestro Kujawsky's pre-concert lecture will include an appearance by Henry Mollicone, discussing his new Concerto for Violin and Orchestra.
