Reception following

What defines a symphony? American maverick Fredric Rzweski (pronounced: zheff-skee) answers that question with quality rather than quantity in his Pocket Symphony, requiring virtuosic playing from all six musicians. Nico Muhly’s hypnotic Doublespeak, Huang Ruo’s Chinese-folk and rock inspired Divergence, and Philadelphia-born Jacob Druckman’s tautly constructed Come Round each exhibit symphonic qualities in non-traditional ways, demonstrating the tremendous range of expression and musical colors possible from a pocket-sized ensemble.
