Connecticut’s Hartford Symphony Orchestra has announced that the first concert in its new contemporary-music series will take place on January 26 at Hartford’s Real Art Ways event space, with food and drink. HSO Music Director Carolyn Kuan will lead the concert mixing contemporary music and classics. Featured works will include London-based composer Roger Goula’s Pale Blue Dot, named for the photograph of Earth taken by the Voyager 1 space probe, and a four-movement called Void by composer RSM, inspired by Kurt Steger’s monumental sculpture Scribing the Void on view at Real Art Ways. Also on the program will be Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 and Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite and L’Histoire du Soldat.
