1/27: Cleveland Institute of Music Orchestra

Posted By on Wed, Jan 20, 2010 at 12:49 PM

Cleveland Institute of Music student Michael Bratt’s doctorate in music composition requires a dissertation in the form of an orchestral score. The CIM Orchestra performs the result, “Unconscious Intelligence,” tonight. The 10-minute piece for string orchestra, percussion, harp and piano includes 10 to 20 different string parts playing at any given time — a compilation of musical ideas Bratt developed through free association. “It comes across as really big chamber music,” he says. The program also puts the spotlight on the winner of last year’s CIM Concerto Competition, violinist Benjamin Odhner, who plays the solo in Alexander Glazunov’s Violin Concerto. The concert concludes with Camille Saint Saëns’ Symphony No. 3. Carl Topilow conducts. It starts at 8 p.m. at CIM’s Kulas Hall (11021 East Blvd., 216.791.5000). Admission is free, but a seating pass is required. — Michael Gill
