There will be an encore presentation made available of acclaimed composer and Holy Cross professor Osvaldo Golijov’s “Last Round,” performed by the New York Philharmonic string orchestra. Originally performed on Oct. 12 and 15, the concert will be broadcast online through New York Philharmonic’s website and on New York’s local station 105.9 FM WQXR, along with various nationwide radio stations.

Golijov is the Loyola Professor of Music at Holy Cross and a 2003 MacArthur Fellow.  He has won two Grammy awards in the categories of Best Opera Recording and Best Classical Contemporary Composition, and was named Musical America’s 2006 Composer of the Year.

Most known for blending influences from many musical traditions to reflect the multicultural modern world, “Last Round” is no exception to Golijov’s unique style of composition.  “I composed ‘Last Round’ (the title is borrowed from a short story on boxing by Julio Cortázar) as an imaginary chance for Piazzolla’s spirit to fight one more time,” Golijov wrote. ” There are two movements: the first represents the act of a violent compression of the instrument and the second a final, seemingly endless opening sigh.”

The encore radio broadcast will air in New York on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. on 105.9 FM WQXR. You can also listen to the broadcast online starting Friday, Nov. 8 by clicking on “Radio Broadcasts” in the Watch & Listen section of New York Philharmonic’s website.
