JoAnn Falletta to conduct the world premiere of Causeway for orchestra and electronics by Ian Wilson
Ian Wilson’s major new work to conclude his tenure as Associate Composer with the Ulster Orchestra, Causeway for orchestra and electronics, will be premiered on 26 March at the Ulster Hall, Belfast and conducted by JoAnn Falletta. Causeway is the final work of the composer’s trilogy of orchestral pieces inspired by the history, culture and (in this instance) geology of Northern Ireland, the previous two being The stars, the seas (2011) and Flags and Emblems (2012). Of his time as composer-in-residence, Wilson says:
I’ve enjoyed my four years as Associate Composer with the UO, mainly because it’s given me the opportunity to write for orchestra again after a break of a few years, and on quite a substantial scale. It’s allowed me to work with two fine conductors and to conduct the orchestra myself at the Belfast Festival at Queen’s, which was a memorable experience (for me at least).

Joseph Phibbs Clarinet Concerto (US Premiere) 8 March
Cornell Chamber Orchestra; Chris Younghoon Kim, conductor, with guest clarinettist Richard Faria will present the US premiere of Phibbs’ Clarinet Concerto. Commissioned by the Orchestra of the Swan and premiered in 2009, this work possesses a strongly focused harmonic language and plays bold tricks with the proportions of its movements.
