Upcoming Events

Brahms the Romantic

Classical
Pablo Heras-Casado, whom The New York Times hails as “the thinking person’s idea of a hotshot young conductor,” returns to the New World Symphony for an evening of luxurious orchestral gems. Johannes Brahms, the ultimate romantic who once felt paralyzed by Beethoven’s shadow, found immediate success in his Third Symphony, a rich panorama of endless beauty. György Ligeti’s energetic Romanian Concerto channels “the spirit of the village bands” with distant alphorn calls, tantalizing violin solos and a raucous finale. The soaring lushness of Franz Liszt’s famous tone poem Les Préludes is pure indulgence. Themes of love, destiny, war and the countryside bloom as he muses “what is our life but a series of preludes to that unknown song?”

Double Take: The Imaginative Symphony

Classical
Why is music such a powerful catalyst for feeling and connection? How can we get even more out of listening to music? In this one-night-only event designed for anyone, NWS Fellows invite you into an imaginative listening party that will engage your senses, provide insight into the mind of a musician and transform how you listen to music. Mentored by MTT, four Fellows share the works that mean the most to them, welcoming your take on the same works in an interactive, all-right-answers environment. This journey of impressions and emotions transports us from pastoral mysticism to intoxicating sensuality, to the wildness of the sea and the fantasies of mythical beasts. Plus, as always when the Fellows are in the driver’s seat, be prepared for a few surprises along the way. The experience continues following the concert, as the Fellows lead an insightful post-concert chat for further reflections and questions.

The League of Composers

Classical, Chamber Music
Violinist Daniel Ching, founder of the Miró Quartet, joins the Fellows for music by a worldly gang of composer friends who, despite distance and origins, frequently shared artistic ideas. Aaron Copland, father of the American Sound, offers a tourist’s impression of a vivacious Cuba in his Danzón cubano, arranged here for percussion ensemble. Dmitri Shostakovich discards his signature darkness for the lively waltzes, polkas and gypsy dances adapted from his theatrical works. Argentinian Alberto Ginastera’s String Quartet pounds with frenetic force, while Mexican Carlos Chávez’ Upingos is a brief, haunting soliloquy for solo oboe. Like a conversation between old friends, the cello and piano have sweeping, intense dialogues in Benjamin Britten’s Sonata.

A Return to Bach's Coffeehouse

Classical
Long before Starbucks appeared on every corner there was Leipzig’s Café Zimmermann, where the original jam sessions were taking place regularly by musical mastermind J.S. Bach and his student orchestra. With libations flowing, Bach would take the stage to perform his own works, as well as those by his admired friends Vivaldi and Telemann. Recreate the magic with two of Bach’s renowned Brandenburg Concertos, Telemann’s whimsical “chirping” symphony and a brilliant concerto by Vivaldi. Grab a cup of joe with friends as the Artistic Director of Cleveland’s famed Apollo’s Fire, Baroque authority Jeannette Sorrell, sets the scene with intoxicating zest and hypnotic precision.

Concerto Showcase

Classical
In a popular all-concerto program—a staple of the NWS program—select Fellows take the coveted spotlight as winners of this season’s concerto competition, an intense contest where Fellows compete head-to-head armed with their favorite solo work. The concert opens with lush, ultra-Romantic cascades by the harp in Reinhold Glière’s dream-like Concerto featuring Chloe Tula. Rewind over 130 years for the classical cheerfulness and regal heralding of Johann Hummel’s demanding Trumpet Concerto, performed by Ansel Norris, and the playful bravura of Carl Maria von Weber’s Bassoon Concerto captured perfectly by Darren Hicks. Ultra-romantic Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto, once dubbed “unplayable,” is the ultimate showstopper by Emerson Millar, as it seamlessly shifts from lush beauty to breakneck brilliance. Join us to celebrate the immeasurable talent and accomplishments of the young musicians who call the New World Symphony home.

Sounds of the Times: John Adams and The Sounds of America

Classical
John Adams, today's contemporary American music icon returns to lead his own music, as well as that of a younger generation. Quietly heralding the evening’s start is Adams’ spatial fanfare Tromba lontana. Samuel Adams pushes to the extreme in his many words of love, finding inspiration in Schubert and Japanese pop. Hailed for his “playful intelligence and individuality,” Timo Andres creates a magical quest inspired by Beethoven in The Blind Banister, a finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize performed by its dedicatee, pianist Jonathan Biss. David Lang offers a majestic homage to Copland and, in its East Coast premiere, Andres performs Ingram Marshall’s Flow, a spiritual ebb-and-flow peppered with references to his colleagues and friends.
