Symphony to perform world premiere


Grammy-nominated composer Michael Gandolfi on Saturday will unveil his new work commissioned by the Lexington Symphony in honor of the town’s 300th anniversary celebration. The premiere performance of Gandolfi’s “Fortune, Fate, and the Fool” will be held in Cary Memorial Hall at 8 p.m. Gandolfi, a Boston-based composer and chairman of the composition department at the New England Conservatory of Music, was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2009 for best contemporary classical composition. Next weekend’s concert will also feature British violinist Ruth Palmer performing a Korngold concerto, and conductor Jonathan McPhee will lead the orchestra through Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony, the “Pastoral.”  Information about tickets can be found online at www.lexingtonsymphony.org.
