The works of nationally and internationally renowned composers from the Baltimore-D.C. area take center stage in this dynamic episode that opens with Jonathan Leshnoff’s visceral “Miller-Kahn” Quartet. Baltimore-born Philip Glass’ entrancing work contrasts with the intensely sorrowful Lyric for Strings by George Walker, the first Black composer to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music. Also featured are Duke Ellington’s “Come Sunday;” Kevin Puts’ Arcana; and the world premiere of Ubuntu, composed by the BSO’s own Brian Prechtl.
