Wonderful Women on Stage

violin summer

Gail Wein
November 03, 2017

There are some phenomenal concerts are coming up this month, and the best of the best just happen to be women

The Park Avenue Armory has built a reputation for unusual presentations and star-power performers. The much-ballyhooed soprano Barbara Hannigan is giving her US recital debut in the building’s intimate Board of Officers Room. The Viennese program on November 16 features works by Schoenberg, Zemlinsky and Alma Mahler, and the November 18 program is entirely music by Erik Satie.

On November 21 at Le Poisson Rouge, the fabulous violinist Lara St. John recreates the historic Central Park concert given by the tango king, Astor Piazzolla. Piazzolla died in 1992, but his pianist, Pablo Ziegler, carries on the tradition with his Quartet for New Tango. Admission is free if you have an LPR membership (well worth it), otherwise, tickets are available online and at the door.

Another spectacular violinist, Leila Josefowicz, performs at 92nd Street Y with the pianist John Novacek. The program includes music by Prokofiev, Sibelius and John Adams. That’s on November 4. Just a few days later, on November 8, the pianist Angela Hewitt takes the stage at 92Y for a program of Bach partitas. It’s part of her exploration of all of Bach’s keyboard works, a herculean task that the Canadian pianist - well-known for her bach interpretations - is executing with panache.

The pianist Jenny Lin performs at Lincoln Center on Sunday morning, November 12. After her tribute to Valentin Silvestrov – featuring the visionary Ukrainian composer’s lyrical meditations on Mozart, Schubert, Chopin – the audience will enjoy coffee and pastries at the post-concert reception. The concert is part of Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival.

I am very excited that Sweet Honey in the Rock will be performing at Symphony Space on November 3. This is an a capella ensemble of women, a group rooted in African American history and culture. Their programs incorporate vibrant song, dance, and storytelling.

One more performance not to be missed: the Israel Philharmonic led by Zubin Mehta at Carnegie Hall on November 7 (featuring the pianist Yefim Bronfman) and November 8 (Mahler’s Symphony No. 3).

And, finally, the New York Philharmonic gives us a respite from leftover turkey on Thanksgiving weekend. The storied Italian conductor Gianandrea Noseda, the new music director of the National Symphony Orchestra, delivers a filling program: Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 3 and the Saint-Saens Violin Concerto with the NY Phil’s concertmaster, Frank Huang as soloist. November 22, 24 and 25 at Lincoln Center.

There is much to be thankful for this month, and live classical performances are at the top of my list.
