5-23: Cleveland Orchestra

Posted By on Wed, May 20, 2009 at 3:00 PM

Composer Oliver Knussen comes to town often, and he usually conducts one of his own pieces. Tonight it’s 2006’s “Requiem: Songs for Sue,” a short work that pays tribute to his late wife and includes words by Emily Dickinson and W.H. Auden. Soprano Elizabeth Keusch sings. The “Composers of Our Time” program also includes Julian Anderson’s piece for orchestra and five solo horns, a new work by Nevada native Sean Shepherd, Luke Bedford’s “Outblaze the Sky” and the U.S. premiere of Augusta Read Thomas’s “Helios Choros III.” It all starts at 8 p.m. at Severance Hall (11001 Euclid Ave., 216.231.1111). Tickets: $36-$110. — Michael Gill
