Composition Commission issued to Robert Moran
Stuttgarter Kammerorchester, Deutschland
Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra is a string ensemble performing throughout the world. While traditionally focusing on a range spanning Baroque and the classical modern age, for a number of years now it has also increasingly featured contemporary music in its program. These efforts are to be systematically continued in future. In each season at least one composition commission is to be added to the string orchestra’s repertoire. The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation is supporting a composition commission issued to the American composer Robert Moran. Featured in a program with pieces by Mendelssohn and Schubert, the premiere of the new piece for string orchestra will feature as part of a cycle organized by the cultural institution Stuttgarter Kulturgemeinschaft. It will also be performed a week later at the Aspekte Festival in Salzburg.
