Date Time Event Description
Mar-02-15 08:00 PM Cracow Duo makes New York City debut at Carnegie Hall (FREE) After critically acclaimed tours in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, the Cracow Duo makes its New York City debut at Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall on Monday, March 2, 2015 at 8:00 PM in a free performance. With over a dozen years of successful concerts abroad, the duo of lifelong friends Jan Kalinowski (cello) and Marek Szlezer (piano) comes to New York in celebration of Fryderyk Chopin's 205th birthday. Recognized in Poland as staunch advocates of their country's musical tradition, the Cracow Duo will perform masterpieces by Chopin, as well as works by the Polish-born composer Aleksander Tansman. Tansman fled Europe in 1941 and settled in Los Angeles. There he met Arnold Schoenberg and other European expatriates, and went on to become a successful film composer. The Cracow Duo has been praised by The Strad magazine for its "arresting" performances and "natural rapport." ResMusica described the Duo's performance of Chopin's Cello Sonata as "intelligent and reflective." The Duo has committed itself to performing and recording the best of Polish music and has recorded the chamber music of Chopin, Tansman, and Penderecki extensively. Kalinowski and Szlezer have acted as ambassadors for their homeland in the "Days of Kraków" festival in Nanjing, China and similar events around the world. Equally dedicated to music written by living composers, the Cracow Duo released their album Dedications in 2015, featuring works by Polish composers written expressly for the Duo.
Mar-02-15 08:00 PM Downers Grove North High School Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble "New York Nouveau" celebrates music with unique ties to the Big Apple. Highlights include a world premiere of a commissioned work by American composer Don Owens, a New York premiere of Black Dog featuring Kristin Bowers of the United States Air Force Band of Washington, DC, and the original version of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, as premiered in New York by the Paul Whiteman Jazz Orchestra in 1924.

Mar-06-15 09:30 PM Edmar Castañeda Trio When Colombian harp virtuoso Edmar Castañeda plays, it’s hard to believe only one man and not a trio of harpists is performing. Castañeda’s remarkable technique—he plays lead, rhythm, and bass lines all at once—is equaled only by his soulful improvisations. He leads his acclaimed global jazz trio in this concert.
