River Rouge Transfiguration for orchestra. Autograph musical manuscript sketch leaf
. Folio, ca. 300 x 220 mm. 1f. (2 pp.). Notated in pencil on 12-stave music manuscript paper. Dated "01/12/13" and marked "Orchestral sketches." Contains various musical ideas, with textual annotations: "Structure moving to big moment: ... Winds: peter out to bursts... bursts w/ brass high str[ings]: move... start to add 16ths, then totally 16ths..." Accompanied by a 1-page signed autograph statement certifying that the manuscript is in the composer's hand. Slightly worn; small stain to lower edge.. A fine example of the composer's working methods. Commissioned by the Detroit Symphony, the first performance was given by the Symphony under the direction of Leonard Slatkin on May 31, 2013. "The biggest news of the night was the world premiere of the DSO-commissioned 'Rouge River Transfiguration,' by Missy Mazzoli, winner of the orchestra's Elaine Lebenborn Competition for women composers... Mazzoli has been widely recognized for an omnidirectional aesthetic that marries her highly refined classical music roots with vernacular influences and a kind of indie-rock identity and attitude... The 10-minute 'Rouge River Transfiguration' takes its inspiration from the way in which artists and writers, among them the early 20th Century photographer and painter Charles Sheeler and the contemporary author Mark Binelli, have often seen Detroit industrial monuments like Ford's River Rouge Plant as secular cathedrals of modern life." Mark Stryker, Detroit Free music critic, writing of the first performance.
