Perspectives artist Michael Tilson Thomas’s brilliance as conductor and composer are showcased. His Four Preludes on Playthings of the Wind takes its text from a Carl Sandburg poem and was composed for soprano Measha Brueggergosman. This unique song cycle—scored for three singers, chamber orchestra, and cabaret band—is a fascinating fusion of art song and bebop. Tilson Thomas’s mastery of Mahler is featured in a performance of the composer’s string orchestra arrangement of Schubert’s powerful string quartet. Fellow Perspectives artist Yuja Wang is also on hand for New York premieres of two works for solo piano by Tilson Thomas.
