Commissioned and premiered by the New York Philharmonic, True South captures the James Mathesons fascination with reinterpreting traditional harmony and rhythm. Energetic, colorful, and grounded by underlying lyricism, the work transcends its scoring for chamber orchestra with textures that are sonorous, and evocative. True Souths loosely structured set of variations flows through moments of brightness and darkness, sparseness and density, motion and stillness. The works title evokes an inverted globe, presenting an opportunity for examining our preconceptions about the world, its politics and inhabitants. Performance materials and large score are available on rental. Duration: 16.
