The 79-year-old wunder-elder and his powerhouse trio—Danilo Pérez (piano), John Patitucci (bass), Brian Blade (drums)—join Orpheus for what should be a boundary-erasing romp through a few of the saxophonist-composer’s ambitious works for band and orchestra. In addition to Shorter’s Pegasus, Prometheus Unbound, and The Three Marias, Orpheus will also perform Beethoven’s overture Creatures of Prometheus and Charles Ives’s Symphony No. 3, The Camp Meeting.
