In Blueprints, the first concert of EYSO’s 2022-23 season, explore how music is built by investigating musical inspiration, design, and construction. What do the blueprints reveal in the formal structures of Bach fugues, the intimate musical portraits of Elgar’s Enigma Variations, and the modern geometric structures and aleatoric adventures of 21st-century composers? With the student musicians of the award-winning Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestras, listen and explore how composers and artists employ principles of thoughtful design and construction to create meaning.
