Visiting Orchestras, Polish Exiles and a Brass Band

Gail Wein
April 30, 2019

Flowers burst into bloom, trees are green and skies are blue. It’s May in New York City and live performances abound.

Visiting orchestras from around the country bring exciting programs to our fair city. The Pittsburgh Symphony comes to Lincoln Center on May 19. Though you may not think of Pittsburgh as a hotbed of orchestral music the conductor Manfred Honeck and the pianist Till Fellner (performing Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto) are as good as it gets. Coming up the pike from Washington DC, the National Symphony Orchestra and its music director Gianandrea Noseda bring two beefy, rarely heard works to the Carnegie stage, Rossini’s “Stabat Mater” and the “Dante Symphony” by Liszt, also on May 19. Michael Tilson Thomas leads the New World Symphony – an astoundingly superb training ground for post-graduate orchestral musicians – in two programs at Carnegie Hall. May 1 features the indominable pianist Yuja Wang in Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 5, and May 2 showcases music by Schubert alongside compositions by MTT himself.

The prolific Polish-Jewish composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg would be turning 100 this year, and one of the celebrations of his centennial is on May 19 (yes, there seem to be many concerts happening on this same day), at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue. The program features Weinberg’s “24 Preludes for Solo Cello” and Modest Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition”. Music by another composer exiled from his native Poland, Karol Rathaus, will be highlighted at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall on May 3. In his Carnegie debut, the pianist Daniel Wnukowski performs Rathaus’ music alongside works by Handel and Chopin.

A terrific program on May 8 puts the music of Harry Burleigh in context in a program that also includes compositions by William Grant Still and Florence Price. Urban Playground Chamber Orchestra performs this program of works by African-American composers at the Schomburg Center for research in Black Culture in Harlem. And finally, in the category of not-quite-classical-but-it’s-classical-to-me, the Rebirth Brass Band brings their vivacious rhythms up from New Orleans for a crowd-pleasing show at Symphony Space on May 11.

Enjoy the flowers, the blue skies AND the live music!
