NC Symphony: Scheherazade

When: Fri., Feb. 10, 8 p.m. and Sat., Feb. 11, 8 p.m. 2017

Sandwiched between two late-nineteenth-century Russians—Rimsky-Korsakov’s orientalist masterpiece Scheherazade and Tchaikovsky’s played-to-death uber-romance, Romeo and Juliet—is a new work by the young American composer Timo Andres. Everything Happens So Much derives its title from a post by the wonderfully weird Horse_ebooks Twitter account, and the piece explores the open-ended possibilities suggested by that gnomic phrase. Its main theme skips around arpeggios, its development brash and muscular with flecks of Bernstein poking through the cracks. —Dan Ruccia

Price: $23-$76
