The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) presents a live streamed performance of composer Anna Clyne’s Stride on Saturday, February 13 at 7:30pm. The concert will include Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto NO. 6 featuring DOS Principal and Assistant Principal Violas Eric Nowlin and James VanValkenburg. Anna VClyne will participate in rehearsals remotely by means ofa  new technology in development, Ted, a binary audio and 360-visual head created by Grammy-winning audio engineer Jody Elff.

Clyne’s Stride is a 15 minute work for string orchestra. Stride first premiered in November 2020 by the Australian Chamber Orchestra. That same month, the US premiere of Stride was given by the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra. The piece draws inspiration from Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13, which is commonly known as Sonata Pathétique.

Clyne says, “I chose a few melodic, rhythmic and harmonic fragments from each of the three movements and developed these in the three corresponding sections of Stride. The title is derived from the octave leaps that stride in the left hand in the first movement of Sonata Pathétique. I was immediately drawn to the driving energy of this bass movement and have used it as a tool to propel Stride.”
