Michael Hersch & Patricia Kopatchinskaja to Open 2015-16 Music in the Making Series

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra (SPCO), Classical Minnesota Public Radio (MPR), and American Composers Forum (ACF) are pleased to open the fourth season of Music in the Making with a conversation between composer Michael Hersch and SPCO Artistic Partner and violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja. Hosted by Classical MPR's Steve Seel, the discussion will take place at 7:00pm on Wednesday, November 4 at MPR's UBS Forum in downtown Saint Paul.

Hersch and Kopatchinskaja kick off the first Music in the Making conversation of the 15.16 season in anticipation of the world premiere of Hersch's Violin Concerto, commissioned by and for the SPCO and Kopatchinskaja. Hersch, as a leading composer of his generation and an accomplished concert pianist, and the vibrant and compelling Kopatchinskaja, a familiar face to SPCO followers, are sure to challenge and inspire both the musicians and audience of the SPCO. In this intimate and open conversation, Hersch and Kopatchinskaja detail the making of the four movement work and elaborate on their collaborative and creative processes.
