“The Louisville Orchestra has announced its 2022-23 season, which includes new works by composers from the recently launched Creator Corps, the eighth annual Festival of American Music and commissioned works by modern composers, including the 2021 Grawemeyer Award-winning composer Olga Neuwirth,” writes Kirby Adams in Wednesday’s (4/20) Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY). “The 2023-23 ‘season of creativity’ also includes Music Director Teddy Abrams performing as pianist and conductor for Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto in a program where he also conducts Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, plus performances by [violinist] Tessa Lark and … the momentous Symphony No. 7 by Anton Bruckner.” The season begins in September with Wynton Marsalis’s Violin Concerto in D, Sofia Gubaidulina’s Concerto for Symphony Orchestra and Jazz Band, and Igor Stravinsky’s Symphony in Three Movements. Principal Pops Conductor Bob Bernhardt will conduct six programs, beginning with a concert featuring Broadway vocalist Kelli O’Hara. Living composers—in addition to the commissioned world premiere of Olga Neuwirth’s Masaot/Clocks Without Hands—will include Thomas Adés, Mason Bates, Christopher Cerrone, and Joel Thompson; the orchestra will also perform music by Bartók, Bernstein, Mussorgsky, Rachmaninoff, Ravel, Robert Schumann, Richard Strauss, Tchaikovsky, and Isadora Źebeljan (1967-2020).
