After its world premiere at the Tanglewood Summer Festival in 2022, on January 3-5 of this year, the Oslo Philharmonic performed Elizabeth Ogonek's Starling Variations under the direction of Elim Chan for their New Year’s program.
After ringing in the new year in Oslo, Ogonek’s work migrated back to the states. On January 12-14, the San Francisco Symphony performed the premiere of Moondog, also under Elim Chan (the program can be found here). For more insight into this “visually evocative” composition, check out Ogonek’s interview with Steve Holt. A San Francisco Chronicle review of the concert can be found here.
