DECORATION

ORCHESTRA FROM PLANET X

INTRODUCTION

What happens when musical worlds collide? That is the question the conductor poses to the audience in this program tracing the influences of the New World on European orchestral tradition.

But there are musical influences afoot of which the conductor is not aware. Two aliens have descended on the concert hall with their own ideas - and inventions - for influencing "Earth Music". The result is a concert program that brings important musical concepts to life in a sci-fi thriller featuring an outstanding program of American composers and New World music.
