Jessie Montgomery, Rhapsody No. 1 for solo violin – an homage to the tradition of J.S. Bach’s solo violin Sonatas and Partitas, his Suites for solo cello and the six solo violin Sonatas of Eugène Ysaÿe
Marcos Balter, Descarga for solo percussion – a tribute to Balter’s Brazilian heritage, and the enormous percussion ensembles that perform during the official carnival parade in his hometown of Rio de Janeiro
James Lee III, Abraham’s Sons (In Memoriam: Trayvon Martin) for solo cello – a reaction to the tragic and unjust death of Trayvon Martin
BRAVO Youth Orchestras, NEW WORK (title TBD) World Premiere – a collective reaction of BRAVO’s student musicians to Nina Simone’s rendition of the yearning ballad, Tomorrow Is My Turn – featuring loops, beat makers, vocal recordings and the incorporation of their own instrumental sounds as well as performance clips from Fear No Music musicians
Daniel Bernard Roumain, Hip Hop Studies and Etudes (selections – surprise rendition) – “these vary greatly in style, from slow, introspective Neo-Classical ruminations to rhythmically complicated, riffy pieces that would not be out of place in a dance club” (Allan Kozinn, New York Times)
