The Pacific Symphony is doing what orchestras like the Boston Symphony under Koussevitzky did, i.e. you commission a piece, then you actually play it in subsequent seasons. The Pacific Symphony Orchestra under Carl St. Clair commissioned and premiered The Passion of Ramakrishna back in 2006. It's a major work for soloists, chorus, and orchestra and was subsequently played by its co-commissioning party the Nashville Symphony but hasn't been heard since. So it's very nice to see the Passion will return a year from today in Orange County.
