Allegro molto e vivace Adagio — Allegro molto With respect to the musicians and your fellow patrons, we request your participation in the tradition of withholding applause between movements of a selection. To the same end, we also ask that you silence and discontinue use of all electronic devices. What happens when a fearless improviser, already a top virtuoso in the city that dominates the music world, trades his piano keyboard for a blank orchestral score? Whether we are talking about Beethoven composing his First Symphony in Vienna, or jazz pianist Vijay Iyer creating a new work for Orpheus, the results are electrifying.
Julian Fifer and a group of like-minded young musicians determined to combine the intimacy and warmth of a chamber ensemble to the richness of an orchestra founded Orpheus in With 71 albums, including the Grammy Award-winning Shadow Dances: Stravinsky Miniatures, and 42 commissioned and premiered original works, Orpheus rotates musical leadership roles for each work and strives to perform diverse repertoire through collaboration and open dialogue.
Performing without a conductor, Orpheus presents an annual series at Carnegie Hall and tours extensively to major national and international venues. It has been the focus of studies at Harvard and of leadership seminars at Morgan Stanley and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital, among others.
Two unique education and engagement programs, Access Orpheus and Orpheus Institute, aim to bring this approach to students of all ages. Because of declining resources for arts education, many public schools do not have access to fulltime arts teachers to provide music instruction and exposure to art and culture.
Access Orpheus helps to bridge this gap with in-class visits, attendance at working rehearsals, and free tickets for performances at Carnegie Hall. In the coming seasons, Orpheus will continue to share its leadership methods and performance practices as the ensemble provides audiences with the highest level of musicianship and programming.
Sommernacht The musical work Sommernacht, is also the title of a poem by Gottfried Keller. The composer, Schoeck, took a section of this poem and summarized it in his own words, adding that to the score. However, at the very least it is thought appropriate to make the listener aware of it, and Alexander Scheirle has provided the German text and added the English translation below.
Crescent noises, cheers and harmonica sound betray the cheerful activity of the old, beautiful custom, until morning cocks, awakening bird calls and early bells call the brave, secret helpers to their own, heavy work.
Mendelssohn returned to the same inspiration seventeen years later when he contributed incidental music for a new production of that Shakespeare comedy in Potsdam.
The selections included the earlier Overture published as Opus 21 as well as thirteen new sections using chorus, vocal soloists and orchestra published separately as Opus They have all joined the Overture as concert hall staples, while the Wedding March has earned a special recognition as the recessional of choice in many wedding ceremonies.
This suite for chamber orchestra, created in by the German composer Andreas Tarkmann, features those beloved orchestral interludes, as well as instrumental versions of some of the lesser-known excerpts.
The Elfenmarsch March of the Fairies and Elfenlied Song of the Fairies come from Act II, when Titania, the fairy queen, enters with her retinue and bids them to sing a fanciful incantation. The Funeral March accompanies the play within a play in Act V, when the bumbling acting troupe presents the tragedy Pyramus and Thisbe.
The Dance of the Clowns returns to the braying, donkey-like theme first introduced in the Overture as a nod to one of those hapless actors, Nick Bottom, whom the mischievous Puck transforms into an ass. The Finale revives more music from the Overture, including the mystical opening chords and the scampering violin motives.
He flirted with some of the avant-garde developments of the twenties and thirties, and his music made some inroads into Germany, but ultimately he retreated to a modest career in Switzerland and a musical language rooted in the melodious tonality of his early years, especially after a heart attack in The poem describes a custom in which young men spend their night working by starlight, graciously harvesting the grain for widows and orphans, until the new day dawns and they head off to their own labors.The conducterless Orpheus Chamber Orchestra gives finely detailed performances that capture the many moods of this music.
Their performance of the Botticelli Triptych is the best that I have heard. The recording is excellent, with a very natural finely detailed sound.
