When was your last "breakthrough" moment? Six composers (John Harbison, Shirish Korde, Michael Gandolfi, Mark Berger, Patrick Greene, and Curtis K. Hughes) discuss the impact Boston Musica Viva has had on their career breakthroughs:
For 44 years, Boston Musica Viva has enabled the artistic breakthroughs of over 250 living composers. In fact, the theme of our opening concert this season was “Breakthroughs.” We heard from some of the region’s most promising emerging composers in the Rapido!® Composition Contest Semi-finals alongside the musical mastery of John Harbison, Peter Lieberson, and Andy Vores. In November, the ensemble brought fresh perspective to previously-premiered work by William Kraft while giving audiences the opportunity to discover a new piece by Curtis K. Hughes. For each of these composers, the opportunity to hear his or her life's work come to fruition in sensitive renditions by BMV's talented musicians was nothing short of exhilarating.
