Albany — The Albany Symphony premieres one of composer Tyson Davis’ first orchestral works, Distances, at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 13.
The 20-year-old composer, who has been writing music since age eight and is currently studying at The Juilliard School, has composed numerous pieces for small ensembles and solo instruments. In addition to Davis, the evening will include works by Sir William Walton and Johannes Brahms, who were also in their twenties when they created the pieces to be performed on the concert. The event will be streamed live and in real-time from Universal Preservation Hall in Saratoga Springs. There will be a pre-concert talk at 7 p.m. and a post-concert question and answer session with the artists for season subscribers.
The 2020-2021 season continues through the American Music Festival in June. Concerts will be live and virtual, with the ability to purchase access online at www.albanysymphony.com or by calling the Albany Symphony Box Office at 518-694-3300. Subscribers are also invited to attend a pre-concert chat and a post-concert, real-time “talk-back” session with guest composers, soloists, and Maestro Miller.
