Ford Lallerstedt’s Mumbo! Jumbo! was originally composed for organ and was orchestrated for this performance by Sebastian Chang. Dr. Lallerstedt is a professor at the Curtis Institute where he was an inspiration to both Teddy Abrams and Chang. Teddy said of his professor, “Remember the film Dead Poets Society? Lallerstedt is the real thing. He is able to unify the broadest ranges of core educational elements to inspire a creative individual. Teachers like him are rare; they have an enlightened insight that opens our minds to connections we’ve never considered. He deeply influenced and motivated me as a musician and human being.”
