Additional Notes:
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.Presenter: Park Avenue Chamber Symphony

Additional Notes:
“Die schöne Müllerin” by Franz Schubert

William Ferguson, TenorÉtienne Guérin, Guitar.

The cycle Die schöne Müllerin (“The Beautiful Maid of the Mill”) is a masterpiece of classical song. Its twenty poems tell the story of a young apprentice who falls in love and becomes infatuated with the millers beautiful daughter. Schuberts setting of Wilhelm Müller's poetry was composed for voice and piano; however this 1978 adaptation for tenor and guitar (by Konrad Ragossnig and John Duarte) casts new light on the piece, offering a remarkable level of intimacy and a unique opportunity to enjoy this quintessential expression of the German lied.

Sung in German with no intermission.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

American tenor William Ferguson has appeared in concert and opera across the United States with The Metropolitan Opera, Santa Fe Opera, New York City Opera, The Dallas Opera, Opera Philadelphia, Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Carnegie Hall, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Marlboro Music, The New York Philharmonic, The Boston Symphony, and The LA Philharmonic among others. He holds both a Bachelors and Masters degree from The Juilliard School.

Born in Quebec, Canada, Étienne Guérin was trained on classical guitar with the Montreal-based Uruguayan master Alvaro Pierri at Université du Québec à Montreal. His multiple chamber music collaborations most notably include LHexacorde (a contemporary music-focused guitar ensemble) and Grandbois Flute and Guitar. In 2005-2006, Mr. Guérin partnered with the mythical Québécois comedian Gabriel Gascon in the monumental Platero y Yo by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. He served as artistic director and guitarist on Complètement Marteau!!!, a concert based on Pierre Boulez's Marteau sans Maître that toured across Québec.

City: New York

Additional Notes:
All Polish schoolchildren know the iconic character of Jankiel, the wise old Jewish tavern owner and tsimbl (hammered dulcimer) player who is a key figure in Polish national poet Adam Mickiewicz's epic masterpiece Pan Tadeusz. But just how did a Jewish music-maker become an emblem for Polish national self-determination? For hundreds of years Jewish klezmer musicians developed throughout the shtetls of historic Polish territories as well as the region's cosmopolitan centers such as Warsaw, Krakow, Vilna, Brest, Lodz and Lemberg (Lviv). In recent decades there has been a resurgence of interest amongst Poles in Jewish music, with Poland becoming home to some of the world's largest Yiddish music festivals and dozens of ensembles.

Join Pete Rushefsky, Executive Director of the Center for Traditional Music and Dance and an internationally renowned klezmer tsimbl player as well as special guests for a multi-media presentation and performance exploring Poland's rich klezmer heritage.

We are grateful for the support of the Eli Kleinman Fund for Jewish Education of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Metrowest. Additional support was provided for the Atran Foundation, the Marinus and Minna B. Koster Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
