April: Great Music from Beginning to End, AND, in the Middle, There's Always Room for Cello


Gail Wein
March 31, 2017

East meets West and music meets art on March 31 and April 1 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Juilliard Orchestra premieres music by Tan Dun, the composer best known for his film score for Fighting Tiger Hidden Dragon. Even better: the composer conducts. The Met commissioned this new work by Tan Dun in conjunction with its exhibit featuring 2000-year old terracotta warrior sculptures. Tickets for sale via Met Museum's website.

It's a rare and exciting event when cellists from the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Chamber Music Society and Juilliard get together. On a concert on April 23 at Alice Tully Hall, the Cellists of Lincoln Center will perform one of the most gorgeous works ever, the "Bachianas Brasileiras" by Villa-Lobos, as part of a full program of favorites. If that's not enough cello for you, then go to the 92nd Street Y the previous night, April 22, to hear Alisa Weilerstein perform all six suites for cello by JS Bach.

If you're in the mood for string quartets, the month of April has you covered. Attaca Quartet plays Johns Adams at National Sawdust in Brooklyn on the 2nd, Jupiter Quartet gives a free performance on the 10th at Music Mondays (Advent Lutheran Church on Broadway at 93rd Street), Takacs Quartet is at Lincoln Center on the 13th, and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center presents the St. Lawrence String Quartet on April 25.

There are a number of notable orchestra performances coming up: St. Louis Symphony (March 31), Munich Philharmonic (April 3 and 5) and San Francisco Symphony (April 7 and 8), all at Carnegie Hall; The Knights at BRIC in Brooklyn (April 9 and 13) and the New York Philharmonic, which returns from their European tour, performs April 20 through mid-June.

Capping off the month of April is an entire day and night of music by Steve Reich, in honor of the composer's 80th birthday. It's the annual Wall to Wall concert at Symphony Space on April 30 and it's all free.
