The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, led by William Eddins, comes to Carnegie Hall on May 8 for the second concert in the 2012 Spring For Music festival.
In addition to Martinu's First Symphony, there are three US premieres on the program—John Estacio's Triple Concerto, Allan Gilliland's Dreaming of the Masters III, and Robert Rival's Lullaby.
Here, Rival introduces Lullaby, explaining that the basic theme is five notes—D-A-F-E-G—a cipher derived from his son Raphaël's name.
