CONNESSON – Techno Parade
HIGDON – Autumn Music 
BRAHMS – Sextet in G major, Op. 36

In the early 1860s, as Brahms was approaching his thirties, he visited Vienna for the first time, where he met Richard Wagner. While the completion of his first symphony was still more than a decade off, he was producing many remarkable chamber works, including two luminous string sextets, the second of which, in G major, is featured on this program. American Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon pays homage to Samuel Barber’s iconic Summer Music through her Autumn Music for woodwind quintet, and Guillaume Connesson replicates the raw energy of electronic music through Techno Parade for flute, clarinet, piano, and… toothbrush!
