New Bedford Symphony Orchestra Virtual ConcertSaturday November 21, 2020
7:30 PM until 9:00 PM
Through funds provided by the Mattapoisett Library Trust, ten families will be able to enjoy a virtual concert with the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra. This month's presentation is:
Dmitri Shostakovich: Concerto in C Minor for Piano, Trumpet, and String Orchestra, Op. 35
Antonín Dvořák: Serenade for Strings in E Major, Op. 22
Alexander Korsantia, Piano
Andrew Sorg, Trumpet
Yaniv Dinur, Conductor
Join us on November 21 as we safely place 22 musicians (strings and trumpet) plus Yaniv and Alexander on stage at The Z for a fantastic virtual performance of Shostakovich and Dvořák!
Shostakovich’s first Piano Concerto is an emotional roller coaster that begins in a restrained manner only to spiral out of control by the end. Written for the unusual instrumentation of piano, strings, and trumpet, the piece spans musical styles and includes quotations from folk songs, classical music, cabaret, and silent films. Winner of the 1995 Arthur Rubinstein Competition, Georgian pianist Alexander Korsantia joins the NBSO for this masterpiece.
Somewhat of an antidote to Shostakovich, Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings is really a symphony for string orchestra. Written in only 12 days, it remains one of Dvořák’s most popular works and one of the pinnacles of romantic music.
