Classical music continues to draw audiences and provides an opportunity to be soothed, entertained and sometimes even challenged. As an art, new music must always be composed and producers and artists much program these to further the art. In 2008, Music Director Erik Ochsner met Swedish composer Fredrik Sixten and then SONOS performed Fredrik's magnificent Requiem. To reflect our commitment to living composers, we are very excited to announce a SONOS commission:
Concerto for 2 Pianos and Chamber Orchestra by Fredrik Sixten
After the huge success of Fredrik's Requiem in 2012, SONOS commissioned this new concerto which is composed in honor of the Dranoff International 2 Piano Foundation, and dedicated to the memory of Ruth Unger.
Listen to the SONOS Chamber Orchestra choir perform Agnus Dei from the Fredik Sixten's Requiem.
