The world premiere of Jonathan Leshnoff’s “Rogue Sparks” was a beautiful and exciting piece that engaged every instrument of the orchestra. Just five minutes in length, the music conjured color, sparks and flames of fire brilliant against the night sky. Strings bantered with brass and percussion, seamlessly playing against each other.
