Traditions and Innovations

Michael Haithcock, conductor
Thomas Gamboa, graduate conductor

Pre-concert conversation with Michael Daugherty, Zhou Tian, and Michael Haithcock at 7:15 PM in the Lower Lobby.

Musical innovations often evolve into traditions over time. Joseph Haydn’s innovations in classical form, Richard Wagner’s in harmonic language, and Arnold Schoenberg’s within these traditions are examples. New traditions are being established through the innovations of renowned composers David Lang and U-M’s own Michael Daugherty. Emerging composer Zhou Tian’s work blends cultural as well as musical traditions and innovations.

Haydn- Octet in F Major, Hob. II: F7
Wagner- Trauermusik, WWV 73
Zhou Tian- Petals of Fire
David Lang- Cheating-Lying-Stealing
Schoenberg- Theme and Variations, op. 43a
Michael Daugherty- Niagara Falls
