On April 27, the Hartford Symphony Orchestra in Connecticut will perform at the gallery Real Art Ways, as the second concert in its new contemporary-music series this season. Music Director Carolyn Kuan will lead music by classical and contemporary composers themed to Real Art Ways’ exhibits Reaction Bubble and Nothing to Hide? Art, Surveillance, and Privacy. Featured works will include two movements (“Hartford” and “New York”) of Christopher Swist’s Cities at Twilight and Missy Mazzoli’s Lies You Can Believe In, as well as the first movement of Beethoven’s Octet for Winds and Copland’s Music for the Theatre. The orchestra reports that it sold out its first concert in the series in January, which featured music by Roger Goula, J.S. Bach, and Stravinsky.
