For the world premiere of Chicago composer Wang Lu’s “Code Switch” will trumpet an unorthodox approach to music for brass.

“When I was thinking about writing this opening piece to showcase brass players primarily from the CSO, Missy said: ‘What about a fanfare?’” recalls Wang Lu, referring to Missy Mazzoli, the CSO composer-in-residence who curates MusicNOW.
