Big Winners

Gail Wein
October 01, 2018

The largest cash prize in chamber music is the recently instituted ‘M-Prize Competition’ at the University of Michigan. Last year, the grand prize winner, to the tune of $150k, was the group Russian Renaissance, an eclectic combination of Russian string instruments (balalaika, domra and the insanely large contrabass balalaika) and button accordion. They say they perform “high caliber traditional folk music through a modern lens,” and the best way to find out what that sounds like is to head over to Washington Irving High School’s auditorium on October 13 for the Peoples’ Symphony presentation of this unusual and highly accomplished young group.

If you find you love the sound of the accordion in Russian Renaissance, you’re in luck, because Young Concert Artists has selected its first ever accordionist for its roster this year. Hanzhi Wang makes her New York debut at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall on October 22, which is also the concert that opens Young Concert Artists’ New York season. Ms. Wang is joined by the Zora String Quartet for music from Mozart to Piazzolla.

In addition to these instruments seldom heard on the classical concert stage, there are a number of A-List artists coming to town this month. The Czech Philharmonic brings an outstanding program and performers to Carnegie Hall on October 27. Semyon Bychkov conducts an all-Dvorak program, including the Cello Concerto with Alisa Weilerstein as soloist. Heartthrob tenor Jonas Kaufman brings an evening of operetta to Carnegie, accompanied by the Orchestra of St. Luke’s on October 5. The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble performs at 92Y on October 16, and the chamber choir Stile Antico performs music from Renaissance England, including works by William Byrd and John Dowland. The concert on October 13 is presented by Miller Theatre, but takes place at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin. The Morgan Library & Museum celebrates the 350th birthday of François Couperin on October 16.  Les Talens Lyriques perform works by the French Baroque composer, including music composed for the court of Louis XIV.
