Brad Mehldau: Piano Concerto

One of the great improvisers of contemporary jazz piano, Brad Mehldau premieres a new piano concerto, commissioned by Britten Sinfonia and the Barbican.

Brad is a pianist that’s really able to get under the skin of the music. He finds new beauty in old melodies – not just with jazz standard, but also in his interpretations of Bach, Bluegrass and Radiohead.

THE GRAND TOUR -- ITALY Corelli to Vivaldi

Early Music Foundation
Presents

Early Music New York
Frederick Renz, Director

EM/NY concludes its Grand Tour with spring in sunny Italy, where the light that pervades its visual art suffuses its music as well. Corelli and Vivaldi concertos, sinfonias and overtures will frame a program enriched by contributions from such composers as Domenico Scarlatti (his virtuosic keyboard sonatas recast as concerti grossi by Charles Avison).

Colorado MahlerFest XXXII

One day in the 1970s, Robert Olson was reading a Mahler biography while sitting at the shore of Lake Dillon near Breckenridge, Colorado - a favorite spot framed by the magnificent 14,000 foot peaks of the Rockies.

Olsen had studied conducting with Hans Swarowsky in Vienna, where he had been deeply moved by the funeral march from Mahler's Symphony No 5 played at the Austrian president's funeral.

Olsen realized that this beautiful Colorado landscape was not unlike Mahler's summertime composing environs, and it was then that he conceived the Colorado MahlerFest.

Britten Sinfonia - Beethoven Symphony Cycle (Nos 7 & 8)

Britten Sinfonia
Thomas Ades, conductor

Beethoven: Symphony No. 7
Gerald Barry: Dead March
Beethoven: Symphony No. 8

A game of musical chairs plus a short but inventive symphony all bought together with a jubilant and joyous close, Britten Sinfonia’s Beethoven Cycle continues with Symphonies No. 7 and No. 8

Thomas Adès and Britten Sinfonia continue their journey through Beethoven’s symphonies with the brief, brilliantly inventive Symphony No.7 and the jubilant Eighth. Irish composer (and Beethoven devotee) Gerald Barry draws on melodies that he loves in Dead March, then allows them to behave as if “everything is possible”.
