Britten: Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes
Gregory Youtz: Suite from The Tacoma Method - WORLD PREMIERE
Brahms: Symphony No. 4
OUSTED: Britten’s Four Sea Interludes tells the story of Peter Grimes, a psychologically troubled outcast from an English fishing village. Local composer Dr. Gregory Youtz sheds light on perhaps the most tragic chapter of Tacoma’s history in The Tacoma Method, an opera about the injurious expulsion of the city’s Chinese community. Brahms draws inspiration from Bach, Beethoven and Schumann in his deeply passionate Symphony No. 4, one of the most loved symphonies of the Romantic period.
