“Abracadabra! The New World Symphony conjures a magical, musical afternoon filled with symphonic wonders for the entire family. From the spellbinding fairy tales of The Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake to blockbuster soundtracks from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Encanto, NWS Fellows will enchant young listeners in this unforgettable celebration of the magic within us all.”

Chamber Music: The Lark Ascending

Sunday, October 9, 2022 at 2:00 PM

“With a “breathtaking conflation of grace and grit” (Cleveland Classical), violinist Jennifer Frautschi makes her anticipated NWS debut. Many listeners believe Ralph Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending is among the most beautiful pieces of music ever written. Inspired by a poem by George Meredith that describes a bird in flight, the work forms what the composer called a “pastoral romance for orchestra.” As a prolific composer who wrote for Harry Belafonte and Marvin Gaye, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson finds a rich source of inspiration in the spiritual “Calvary” for his First String Quartet. Low brass claim the spotlight in Kevin Day’s sizzling Ignition.”

“New World Symphony celebrates 35 years with two triumphant performances led by the Vienna Philharmonic’s Christoph Koncz in the newly christened Michael Tilson Thomas Performance Hall. Hailed as a “revelation” and “breathtaking from start to finish” (NRC, Netherlands), Trinidadian soprano Jeanine De Bique makes her NWS debut in selections from Carl Maria von Weber’s opera Der Freischütz. Join in the hilarious hijinks of troublemaker Till Eulenspiegel in Richard Strauss’ dazzling tone poem before witnessing the world premiere of Fanfares from Uhrovec, a festive fusion of American and Bohemian traditions. Johannes Brahms, the ultimate romantic who once felt paralyzed by Beethoven’s shadow, found immediate success in his Third Symphony, a rich panorama of endless beauty.”

MTT + Rachmaninoff

Saturday, October 22, 2022 at 8:00 PM

“Michael Tilson Thomas, NWS Co-Founder and Artistic Director Laureate, returns for a one-night-only extravaganza devoted to the music of Sergei Rachmaninoff. Pianist Yefim Bronfman—a “marvel of digital dexterity, warmly romantic sentiment and jaw-dropping bravura” (Chicago Tribune)—commands the Third Piano Concerto, a towering masterpiece that requires feats of stamina, virtuosity and courage. MTT leads this unforgettable program, which ends on a sweet note with Rachmaninoff’s exquisite Second Symphony as it surges with haunting beauty and joyful redemption.”
