DiMenna Center for Classical Music: Mary Cary Flagler Hall
New York, New York
Saturday, 6 February 2016 - 5:00 PM
In a typical classical music concert, an audience member sitting in a concert hall is kept at a distance from the musicians. In this innovative program, the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony closes the gap between audience and orchestra by introducing a new way to experience classical music, by seating the audience inside the orchestra. According to Maestro Bernard:

Experience Beethoven's Fifth Symphony as you never have. In addition to seeing the string section's bows fly, feeling the trumpets and timpani play and watching the conductor from your seat INSIDE THE ORCHESTRA, you will witness the camaraderie and electricity among and between the players and the conductor. This is a whole new perspective on concert going that for the first time brings the audience into the action.

The Park Avenue Chamber Symphony returns to the Rose Theater at Lincoln Center to showcase two outstanding examples of innovation in classical music.

There aren't many composers with more influence on Jazz composition than George Gershwin. Gershwin's hit "I Got Rhythm" features a chord progression that is used as the basis for countless jazz works from Duke Ellington to Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker. But the most innovative compositions by Gershwin are his classical works, which are influenced strongly by Gershwin's experience in the jazz and popular realm-melodies are infused with an endearing beauty and accessibility that is reminiscent of musical theater, but with a harmonic sophistication and transparent orchestration that dramatically enhances their settings. Gershwin is the only popular composer whose works have found a lasting place in the classical repertoire. We are pleased to present Gershwin's Concerto in F, which shows the composer's artful combinations of contradictory styles and forms. The renowned jazz pianist Ted Rosenthal will join us as soloist in celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Concerto in F's premiere.

Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra is a tour-de-force that features sections of the orchestra as virtuoso soloists. Bartók brings clear innovations from the first note, fusing folk music from Hungary and other Eastern European countries with departures from traditional tonality and non-traditional modes in a brilliant and captivating ride for the audience.

With lush, beautiful melodies and blinding colors Borodin's thrilling Polovtsian Dances from the end of Act II of the opera Prince Igor, will transfix and delight. Well-known piano virtuoso Jeffrey Biegel will perform Saint Saëns Piano Concerto No. 2-a captivating work that begins with a dramatic fantasia in the style of Bach, and ends with a lively, unexpected tarantella. The program concludes with Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade which vividly portrays the waves that rock Sinbad's Ship, the mystery and power of the Kalendar Prince, the love of the young prince and princess growing into a gentle dance, and ...without warning ... you are thrown head-first into a bustling bazaar in Baghdad. Throughout all of this, the gentle voice of our story teller Scheherazade is woven across each episode.
