Chamber Orchestra FIRST EDITIONS kicks off its third season with a program exploring the synthesis of classical music and jazz – called “third stream music” – with a performance of Gunther Schuller’s 1962 classic “Journey into Jazz,” narrated by liberal icon Barney Frank, and the premiere of a composition for jazz quintet and string orchestra by drummer Gabriel Globus-Hoenich. These 20th and 21st century pieces will be complemented by early works of W.A. Mozart, including the Piano Concerto No. 12 with pianist Andrew Hauze and the remarkable Symphony No. 29, written at age 18. A half-hour discussion with Rep. Frank and the musicians will precede the concert.
