About This Performance

The Society is thrilled to collaborate with BalletX, Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet company, as it makes its Kimmel Center debut alongside the Calidore Quartet and 2019 Tchaikovsky Competition Winner Zlatomir Fung. Choreographed by BalletX cofounder Matthew Neenan, the dances are set to the first movement of Schubert’s C Major Quintet and to Kevin Puts’s Credo. The first highlights the playful richness and intensity of Schubert’s musical structure while Credo reflects upon Neenan’s travels in India.

Schubert: Quartettsatz, D. 703
Increasing set to Schubert: Quintet in C Major, D. 956 (1st Mvmt)
Clyne: New Work TBA [Philadelphia Premiere]
