Local Symphony Toasts, "To Good Health"

Feb 02, 2011 07:24PM ● Published by Anonymous

All three featured composers left an extraordinary opus of work despite their relatively short lives.  Just imagine the compositions we might have enjoyed had Mozart, Bartók and Schubert had the benefit of today’s healthcare!  Performances are March 25 and 26 at 8:00pm at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis.  Music Director José-Luis Novo leads the ASO as acclaimed pianist Jeremy Denk, winner of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, joins as guest artist.  Jeremy performs Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major, which consistently ranks among classical music’s greatest hits.

Over the past decade, Jeremy’s career has flourished with critical acclaim for his engagements with leading orchestras and presenters nationwide.  The New York Times described his playing as “bracing, effortlessly virtuosic and utterly joyous.”  Jeremy’s weblog, Think Denk, attracted this observation from Alex Ross, the New Yorker’s music critic: “Besides being a brilliant musician, Denk is simply one of the most interesting writers I know.”

The ASO concert pairs the Mozart piano concerto with Béla Bartók’s Two Portraits which offers a dreamy meditation in which the solo violin soars over Debussy-like harmonies.  Listeners familiar with Bartók’s complex rhythms and dissonant harmonies will be in for a surprise.  Completing the program is Franz Schubert’s “The Great” Symphony No. 8 in C Major featuring his creative, innovative take on the Classical symphonic form.

Tickets are priced from $25 with student tickets available for just $10.  Tickets can be purchased through the ASO Box Office at 410-263-0907 or online at www.annapolissymphony.org.

All ticket holders are invited to a free and informative pre-concert lecture in the auditorium starting at 6.45pm. These entertaining talks, led by British pianist and musicologist Dr. Rachel Franklin, enhance the concert experience by providing historical and insightful perspectives on the music to be played.  Lectures are sponsored by Bank of America.
