NOVUS NY, orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor; Jessica Muirhead, soprano. Program Wachner (b.1969) Gaudé: an LB Anniversary for Large Orchestra Copland (1900-1990) Connotations (1962) Mahler (1860-1911) Symphony No. 4 (1900) About the Performers NOVUS NY is Trinity Church Wall Street’s contemporary music orchestra, under the leadership of Trinity’s Director of Music, Julian Wachner. Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” its members perform new music from all corners of the repertoire, meeting “every challenge with an impressive combination of discipline and imagination” (New York Classical Review). Music director Julian Wachner has been variously described as “jazzy, energetic, and ingenious,” (Boston Globe), having “splendor, dignity, outstanding tone combinations, sophisticated chromatic exploration…a rich backdrop, wavering between a glimmer and a tingle...,” (La Scena Musicale) being “a compendium of surprises,” (Washington Post) and as “bold and atmospheric,” while having “an imaginative flair for allusive text setting,” and noted for “the silken complexities of his harmonies” (New York Times). He has made guest appearances with such major organizations as the San Francisco, New York City, and Glimmerglass Opera, the New York and Hong Kong Philharmonic and many more. Soprano Jessica Muirhead, described by the New York Times as a “multihued soprano with floating top notes”, has appeared with the Hamburger Symphoniker, the Washington Chorus at the Kennedy Center, the Bayerischer Rundfunkorchester, the OFUNAM Symphonic Orchestra in Mexico City, the Flanders Symphony and l’Orchestre Chambre de Genève, among others. About the Program Aaron Copland's Connotations commissioned by Leonard Bernstein in 1962 to commemorate the opening of Philharmonic Hall (now David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts) marks a departure from Copland's populist period, which began with El Salón México in 1936 and includes the works he is most famous for such as Appalachian Spring, Lincoln Portrait and Rodeo. Symphony No. 4 in G major by Gustav Mahler was written in 1899 and 1900, though it incorporates a song originally written in 1892. The song, "Das himmlische Leben", presents a child's vision of Heaven.

The Festival Chamber Orchestra; Lutz Rath, conductor; Robert Ingliss, oboe soloist. Program: Richard Strauss (1864-1949) Concerto in D major for Oboe and Small Orchestra (1945) Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) Symphony # 1 in C major, op. 21 (1801) Gyorgy Ligeti (1923-2006) Concert Romanesc (1951) About the Program The Concerto in D major for Oboe and Small Orchestra was written by Richard Strauss in 1945. It was one of the last works he composed near the end of his life, during what is often described by biographers, journalists and music critics as his "Indian summer." Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 in C major, Op. 21 was dedicated to Baron Gottfried van Swieten, an early patron of the composer. The piece was published in 1801 by Hoffmeister & Kühnel of Leipzig. It is not known exactly when Beethoven finished writing this work, but sketches of the finale were found to be from 1795. Ligeti’s Concert românesc or Romanian Concerto was completed in 1951 although it was not performed publically until 1971 due to the conservative confines of mid-century Hungary. in 1949, Ligeti began transcribing Romanian folk songs from wax cylinder recordings at the Folklore Institute in Budapest. These melodies, and the musical memories from his childhood in Romania, directly inspired his Romanian Concerto. He was able to hear the work performed during an orchestral rehearsal, but public performance was banned. While music based on folksong was permitted, even encouraged, Ligeti’s Concerto was considered too modernist.

Mauritania's defining artist on the international stage, Noura Mint Seymali draws deep on her West African and Maghreb roots to carry her family’s Moorish griot tradition into the 21st century. Her band conjures “a full-blown sandstorm of hypnotic grooves, melding traditional Mauritanian instruments, like the ardine and tidinite, within an electrified psychedelic rock band.” (Quietus, U.K.). Its debut album, Tzenni (2014), was hailed by VICE/Noisey as "arguably the best psych/blues album of the year" and its follow-up—Arbina (2016)—"the best album in the universe.”

Described by NPR as “the best party band in years,” Red Baraat combines rock, jazz, and funk with scorching bhangra (Punjabi dance and music) for a pulse-quickening experience. Red Baraat’s brass section soars like a hot New Orleans mainline band, while the bhangra beats—driven by the dhol (a two-headed Indian drum)—provide relentless momentum. Red Baraat’s 2013 album, Shruggy Ji, jumped to the top of the Billboard World Music chart, and its most recent album, Bhangra Pirates, has been met with tremendous critical acclaim.

The Festival Chamber Ensemble; Mélanie Genin, harp soloist. Program Jean Francaix (1912-1997) Quintet for harp and string trio (1989) Claude Debussy (1862-1918) Sonata for flute, viola and harp (1915) Sergei Prokofiev (1891-1953) Quintet op 39 for oboe, clarinet, violin, viola and double bass (1924) About the Program Debussy's Sonata for flute, viola and harp is one of his finest compositions and the first major work written for this combination of the instruments. It was written as a part of Six sonatas for various instruments. The composer was only able to complete three sonatas of the cycle due to his death in 1918. The work premiered in Boston, at Jordan Hall in the New England Conservatory, on November 7, 1916. The performers were members of a wind ensemble called the Longy Club, which had been founded by the principal oboist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, George Longy. Sergey Prokofiev (1891–1953) left Russia in the wake of the 1917 October Revolution, establishing himself in the West with concert tours around the United States and Europe. He lived briefly in New York and Germany, then settled in Paris in 1923. In that epicenter of the musical avant-garde, Prokofiev made a splash with his colorful and incisive scores, especially his ballets. Quintet op 39 for oboe, clarinet, violin, viola and double bass is related to his ballet Trapèze.

The English-born, France-based singer-songwriter Piers Faccini, who creates “captivating, quietly insistent” music (Wall Street Journal) in the vein of Nick Drake infused with a global outlook, brings his newest project. Inspired by the rich medieval history of his Mediterranean surroundings, I Dreamed an Island is a fascinating collection of songs drawing on Western, Arabic, and Byzantine influences. Imagining how a Provençal madrigal might sound closer to the mode of an Arabic makan, or how words in English could be put to melodies sung with microtones of a Turkish taqsim, Faccini crosses folk and world music genres, transforming John Martyn into Ali Farka Touré, Pentangle into a Tunisian wedding band, and a Sicilian ciaccona into a Tuareg desert riff.

New York Opera Forum presents a concert version of Francesco Cilea's opera Adriana Lecouvreur. The opera is based on the life of the French actress Adrienne Lecouvreur (1692–1730). While there are some actual historical figures in the opera, the episode it recounts is largely fictional. Italian composer Francesco Cilea (1866-1950) is known for his operas L'arlesiana and Adriana Lecouvreur. He was director of the Naples Conservatory from 1916 to 1935. In addition to operas he composed chamber music.

This dramatic oratorio by composer Marisa Michelson and librettist Royce Vavrek tells the story of Noah’s Ark from the perspective of Noah’s wife. Naamah is a strong woman who must guide the diverse species of animals in coming together as the Ark reaches dry land. From the birds to the hippos, each group has its own concerns. Can they learn to live together after the crisis has passed? In a new version of the piece, community members from Lower Manhattan join MasterVoices, led by Ted Sperling, in shared music-making to explore themes of diversity, the role of women in society and the possible devastation of climate change. Composer: Marisa Michelson Librettist: Royce Vavrek Performed by MasterVoices Conductor: Ted Sperling Naamah: Victoria Clark Merman: Sachal Vasandani

Sandbox Percussion, lauded by The Washington Post as “revitalizing the world of contemporary music” with “jaw- dropping virtuosity,” perform works by the composers inspired by Anton Webern's music: Epstein (b.1959), Ligeti (b.1923-2006) and Cerrone (b.1952).  This concert is a part of a concert series focused on the complete works of Anton Webern; the trademark of the series is the juxtaposition of early and modern music. Anton Webern, (1883-1945) the noted Austrian composer and conductor, remembered for his atonal and serial works, was one of the key figures in the Second Viennese School. Unfortunately, with the rise of Nazis, his music was banned and he spent the last decade of his life in financial constraint and musical isolation. He was not very prolific composer, publishing only 31 works during his lifetime. Yet, he left a great impression with his radical compositions, influencing both his contemporaries and younger generations of musicians.

She has performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fischer/ David Geffen Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Symphony Hall in Chicago, Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, Musikverein in Vienna, Cadogan Hall in London, Victoria Hall in Geneva among others. Composer and pianist Vassily Lobanovon conducted masterclasses for piano, chamber music and composition in Russia, Germany, Austria, Poland, Japan, Chile, Finland. Since 1997 Lobanov is professor for piano at the Musikhochschule Köln in Germany. About the Program Composer Clara Schumann (Robert Schumann's wife) considered one of the most distinguished pianists of the Romantic era. She exerted her influence over a 61-year concert career, changing the format and repertoire of the piano recital and the tastes of the listening public. She was the first to perform publicly any work by Brahms. Brahms's Violin Sonata No. 3 in D minor, Op. 108 is the last of his violin sonatas. The piece is dedicated to Brahms' friend and colleague Hans von Bülow, and was premiered in Budapest in 1888 with Jenő Hubay on violin and the composer at the piano. The Sonata in A major for Violin and Piano by César Franck is one of his best-known compositions, and is considered one of the finest sonatas for violin and piano ever written. It is an amalgam of his rich native harmonic language with the Classical traditions he valued highly, held together in a cyclic framework.

Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” NOVUS NY String Quartet led by Julian Wachner perform works by  the composers inspired by Anton Webern's music: Ligeti (b.1923-2006), Babbitt (1916-2011) and Lutoslawsk (1913-1994). This concert is a part of a concert series focused on the complete works of Anton Webern; the trademark of the series is the juxtaposition of early and modern music. Anton Webern, the noted Austrian composer and conductor, remembered for his atonal and serial works, was one of the key figures in the Second Viennese School. Unfortunately, with the rise of Nazis, his music was banned and he spent the last decade of his life in financial constraint and musical isolation. He was not very prolific composer, publishing only 31 works during his lifetime. Yet, he left a great impression with his radical compositions, influencing both his contemporaries and younger generations of musicians.

Vox Aquarum performs works by father of the famous astronomer Galileo Galilei, Vincenzo Galilei and Monteverdi. Vincenzo Galile was a noted lutenist and composer in the later 16C. A member of the Florentine Camerata, Galilei’s works often anticipate Monteverdi’s seconda pratica, as evidenced by the solo bass monodies “Si gioioso mi fanno” and “Se ben di sette stelle.” Claudio Monteverdi is a composer of both secular and sacred music, and a pioneer in the development of opera, he is considered a crucial transitional figure between the Renaissance and the Baroque periods of music history. Vox Aquarum is a vocal quartet. It's members share equally a dedication toward expanding appreciation for vocal chamber music. They are: Katrina Montagna, soprano; Chelsea Laggan, alto; Matthew Koraus, tenor and continuo organ; Brian Goff, bass; Christopher Morrongiello, lute and chitarrone.

From the beatnik riots to the summer of love, NYC’s Greenwich Village was the epicenter of a revolutionary movement in the history of American music. A new wave of writers and performers, inspired by the folk revival of the late fifties, created introspective, socially-aware, deeply personal songs that deserve to be considered as a key part of the American Songbook alongside the pop songs being written uptown. These writers – Bob Dylan, Tim Hardin, Janis Ian, Fred Neil and Phil Ochs, to name just a few – changed the “folk” repertoire from traditional songs to songs sprung from personal, contemporary experience, as well as from the headlines. This freewheeling concert, hosted by Richard Barone, who pays tribute to that exciting era on his recent album Sorrows and Promises, celebrates the lasting legacy of that pivotal decade along with an eclectic roster of artists from then and now performing songs that still resonate today. FEATURED PERFORMERS: Richard Barone (host/MC) Jesse Colin Young (of The Youngbloods) Melanie José Feliciano Maria Muldaur Jenni Muldaur Marshall Crenshaw Jeffrey Gaines Nellie McKay David Amram Happy Traum The Kennedys Tammy Faye Starlite Anthony DeCurtis (Rolling Stone editor) Cindy Lee Berryhill Steve Addabbo Joe McGinty Jeordie More to be announced…
