‘Primal Message’ from The New Jersey Symphony on Monday Broadcast

On The Classical Network in Concert this Monday (11/20), the symphony performs Primal Message by the young American composer Nokuthula Ngwenyama, asking what would we want alien life forms to encounter from us should they discover us?

In this performance, recorded live without an audience during the pandemic, Music Director Xian Zhang conducts the New Jersey Symphony in the East Coast Premiere of Ngwenyama’s work, J.S. Bach’s Keyboard Concerto No. 5 in F Minor, BWV 1056 with soloist Simone Dinnerstein, and the Symphony No. 4 by Robert Schumann.
