Béla Bartók - Viola Concerto (Serly Edition)
    Jordan Bak, viola 
Johannes Brahms - Symphony No.3, in F major

Continuous Variation, at the Singletary Center for the Arts, derives its name from a technique used by composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich in her Symphony No. 1, a work which demonstrates the potential of a handful of ideas to develop into new material. This piece was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 1983, making Zwillich the first female composer to receive this esteemed prize. Violist Jordan Bak joins LexPhil to perform Béla Bartók’s Viola Concerto, left unfinished at his death and completed by Tibor Serly from sketches, memories and ideas. The evening concludes with Johannes Brahms’ beautiful Symphony No. 3, which incorporates cyclical techniques alongside folk melodies and musical codes.

Tickets: $25 - $75 | Youth (17 & under) and Students: $11
