Concert >> New World Symphony
Opening of the New World Symphony 2012-2013 season
The New World Symphony (NWS), America’s only full-time orchestral academy, will begin its 2012-2013 season celebrating its 25th anniversary. This new season’s events will be characterized by the musical exchange of world-renowned musicians such as the French conductor Stéphane Denève and the French violinist Renaud Capuçon performing with the talented fellows of NWS.
This season’s program includes three concerts highlighting French classical talent:
Nov 3 - 4: “Satie plus Six”
This program includes music by French composer and pianist Erik Satie, an innovative and famous figure from the 1920s. During the Parisian avant-garde era, Satie and a group of other composers were known as “Les Six” for their creative music. NWS fellows and baritone Randall Scarlata will explore Satie’s wonderful music in this show.
Nov 10 - 11: “Heavenly Treasure”
Conducted by Stéphane Denève and featuring violinist, Renaud Capuçon, both French graduates and prize-winners from the Paris Conservatoire. This concert will also include works by swiss composer Honegger, also member of “Les Six”, as well as music by Russian composer Prokofiev.
December 15 - 16: “Parisian Tapestries.”
The concert’s name is based on the six medieval tapestries in Paris with French Romantic composer, Hector Berlioz, known for his composition Symphonie Fantastique. Conducted by Susanna Malkki, graduate from London’s Royal Academy of Music, with Clarinettist Kari Kriikku.
The concerts will be taking place in South Beach at the New World Center, known for its unparalleled acoustics.
