New Tyshawn Sorey piece for violin and orchestra set to premier with DSO featuring; Jennifer Koh / The New York Times

During a concert of his works last year at the Miller Theater in New York, the composer and multi-instrumentalist Tyshawn Sorey, who has little patience with distinctions between genres and styles, described his artistic goal as working toward a model of "music that perpetuates itself." A new Sorey piece for violin and orchestra, "For Marcos Balter," receives its premiere during a 45-minute livestream from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, featuring the brilliant violinist Jennifer Koh and the conductor Xian Zhang. Florence Price's "Five Folksongs in Counterpoint," arrangements of spirituals for string quartet, opens the program.
