As the fall season gets underway, MTT leads the San Francisco Symphony in Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 and the West Coast premiere of Samuel Carl Adams’ Drift and Providence. Performances are September 27 at the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for Performing Arts at UC Davis and September 28, 29 & 30 at Davies Symphony Hall.
Samuel Carl Adams (b. 1985) is a Bay Area native and a composer of acoustic and electroacoustic music. For Adams, “Drift and Providence is looking at my home, the west, from within and from afar; Drift and Providence explores what it means to embark from and arrive at the acoustically familiar.” The score for the work includes live electronic processing performed by Adams and controlled by a CNTRL-Rm, Analog Experience Factory and MacBook.
