Date Time Event Description
Dec-03-16 07:00 PM Orpheus Chamber Orchestra Turkish pianist and composer Fazil Say performs Mozart’s sophisticated Piano Concerto No. 21 and his own Silk Road, an engrossing piano concerto inspired by folk music found along the ancient trade route from China to Europe. In the overture to La Scala di Seta, Rossini dishes out humor related to a silk ladder and its role in an operatic love triangle. Haydn’s Symphony No. 83 earned its nickname, “The Hen,” from its fits of lighthearted clucking.
Dec-03-16 10:00 PM Beth Orton Beth Orton has been one of the most unique and beguiling voices in music for the past two decades. After relocating to California a few years ago, Orton got back to her roots and the spirit of her early recordings with electronic legends William Orbit, Andrew Weatherall, and Kieran Hebden. Experimenting with synthesizer loops and inspired by Los Angeles’s wide-open nature, she created Kidsticks, an audacious album of playful and kinetic songs that takes a glance back to her past, while staring confidently into a bright future.

Dec-09-16 07:30 PM The Orchestra Now The Orchestra Now, a pre-professional orchestra in residence at Bard College, performs works by three Russian composers whose music was deemed politically incorrect: Shostakovich, Myaskovsky, and Prokofiev. Because Shostakovich’s song cycle From Jewish Folk Poetry used texts from Jewish folk songs, the 1948 work was not publicly premiered until after the anti-Semitism of the time had abated. That same year, the Central Committee of the Communist Party issued a declaration condemning recent works by Prokofiev and Myaskovsky, as well as several other composers.

Dec-10-16 08:00 PM The Cecilia Chorus of New York Presents A Bach Family Christmas The Cecilia Chorus of New York, Mark Shapiro, Music Director, will present A Bach Family Christmas on Saturday, December 10 at 8:00 PM in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, 57th Street and 7th Avenue in Manhattan. The concert will be presented with orchestral accompaniment. Maestro Shapiro will lead the chorus and orchestra. The program will feature J.S. Bach’s masterpiece Magnificat, along with the World Premiere of Der Zippelfagottist, a 15-minute comic intermezzo (mini-opera) by Jonathan Breit that was commissioned by the chorus. Magnificat will be presented with four additional hymns (laudes) that were inserted into the piece in 1723 by the composer. These rarely performed interpolations enhance the standard version, enriching its context and texture and extending the range of its atmospheres and moods. Also presented will be works by other members of the Bach family, including Meine Seele Erhebet Den Herrn ("Magnificat" in German) by Johann’s cousin J. Ernst, and the Advent cantata Wachet Auf by his son J. Christoph Friedrich. Der Zippelfagottist tells the story of a brawl between the 20-year-old Johann Sebastian Bach and one of his students, a bassoonist. Mr. Breit also wrote the libretto, which he adapted from the original church documents, c. 1705. Mr. Breit, known for his humorous compositions, studied music and linguistics at Yale College and received a Masters of Music at the Mannes School of Music. His bio is at http://bit.ly/2f9T2b9. Soloists for the concert will be Rebecca Farley, soprano, Rihab Chaieb, mezzo-soprano, Nicholas Tamagna, countertenor, Matthew Swensen, tenor and Cody Quattlebaum, bass-baritone. Tickets for the December 10 event range from $25 to $85, and can be purchased online at https://www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2016/12/10/0800/PM/The-Cecilia-Chorus-of-New-York-with-Orchestra/, by calling CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800 or visiting the box office at 57th St and Seventh Ave. For more information about this concert, visit http://www.ceciliachorusny.org/ or call 646-638-2535.
