David Fray has one more performance with the Chicago Symphony on Tuesday evening of the Mozart Piano Concerto No.20. Jaap van Zweden conducts the program, which includes Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra and a wild, and entertaining romp by composer-in-residence Mason Bates.

In addition to the CSO subscription concerts, Mason Bates has a world premiere scheduled for Monday evening, during the final MusicNOW concert of the season. Here’s how Bates describes his new piece, Difficult Bamboo:

“This piece has its roots in nature, but sometimes the natural world replicates very quickly and gets totally out of control. I thought away to express that on an imagistic level was to take this idea of crazy bamboo running through a beautifully manicured landscape.”
