WELCOME...

The music of Beethoven, Mozart and Bach is among the most frequently requested;

and in the 2016-2017 National Philharmonic season, each composer has a concert

especially dedicated to him. The season kicks off with a Beethoven extravaganza,

featuring a National Philharmonic favorite, pianist Brian Ganz, performing the

exquisite Piano Concerto No. 4. The Mozart presentation on April Fools’ Day will

showcase his rarely played A Musical Joke and pianist Eric Lu, just back from his

prize-winning performance at the 17th International Chopin Piano Competition in

Poland. The Bach concert in January, led by Associate Conductor Victoria Gau, will

present members of the National Philharmonic as soloists.

The National Philharmonic Chorale, in addition to its annual Messiah under Artistic

Director Stan Engebretson, will participate in three other concerts, including a

program of “Music From the English Cathedral” and one that includes the rarely

heard version of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture (with chorus) paired with Carl Orff’s

Carmina Burana.

I especially look forward to conducting several Jewish-themed works: Bruch’s Kol

Nidrei and Bloch’s Schelomo with my good friend, cellist Zuill Bailey; and the local

premiere of Jonathan Leshnoff’s oratorio Zohar with soprano Danielle Talamantes and

baritone Nmon Ford. Also not to be missed – the always engaging violinist Chee-Yun,

performing Vivaldi’s as well as Piazzolla’s The Four Seasons, and pianist Haochen

Zhang, playing Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2.

New this season are three Monday morning Musical Musings at the Strathmore Mansion,

where I will discuss music of upcoming National Philharmonic programs.

I look forward to seeing you at Strathmore!

Piotr Gajewski

International Piano Competition, 26-year-old

Chinese pianist Haochen Zhang has captivated

audiences in the U.S., Europe and Asia with a

unique combination of deep musical sensitivity,

fearless imagination and spectacular virtuosity.

“Such a combination of enchanting, sensitive

lyricism and hypnotizing forcefulness is a

phenomenon encountered very rarely.”

BRIAN GANZ PLAYS CHOPIN:

A YOUNG GENIUS

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2017

Brian Ganz, piano

Renowned pianist Brian Ganz continues his journey through the complete works

of Fryderyk Chopin with a celebration of the composer’s youthful creations.

Among the early works featured will be the composer’s 12 Etudes, Op. 10. These

masterful gems (some composed when Chopin was only a teenager) have set the

standard for demanding technical studies that are also works of great beauty

and originality. Also on the program are three nocturnes, including the beloved

E-flat Major, and several youthful polonaises and mazurkas. A refreshingly elegant

set of variations Chopin composed on the German air “Der Schweizerbub” rounds

out the evening.

“There isn’t much about Chopin that Brian Ganz doesn’t know. His delight and

wonder in this music seem to grow, apparently without bounds, as time goes on.”

-- The Washington Post

Chopin 3 Nocturnes, Op. 9

12 Etudes, Op. 10

Introduction and Variations on a German Air

(“Der Schweizerbub”), Op. Posth.

Polonaises in A-flat Major and G-sharp minor, Op. Posth.

Mazurkas in G Major and D Major, Op. Posth.

the most important choral works of the Romantic

Era, Brahms’ Requiem, was written in memory

of his mother, who passed away in 1865.

Jonathan Leshnoff’s oratorio Zohar (which means

“radiance” in Hebrew) is based on the writings

from the Jewish mystical Kabbalah.

Baltimore-based Leshnoff has been named by The Washington Post as one of

the “gifted young composers” of his generation. He is a leader of contemporary

American lyricism whose compositions have earned international acclaim for their

accessible melodies, structural complexity and weighty themes.

the sublime Piano Concerto No. 23;

and the popular Symphony No. 40

in G minor.

The prodigy Eric Lu is rapidly

building an international reputation

as a young pianist with a distinctive

musical voice. Lu became one

of the youngest prize winners of

Warsaw’s esteemed International

Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition

in October 2015.

Mussorgsky/Ravel Pictures at an Exhibition

Celebrated cellist Zuill Bailey performs Max Bruch’s Kol Nidrei, variations on

two themes of Jewish origin, and Ernest Bloch’s Schelomo, the final work of this

composer’s Jewish Cycle. Mussorgsky’s monumental and colorful Pictures at an

Exhibition depicts an imaginary tour of an art gallery.

Bailey’s “sound is rich, like dark chocolate,” writes Voices magazine.“His voice is

distinctive – strong and direct. Bailey reaches from the soul of his instrument to

our own.”

Makris

Tchaikovsky

Orff

Alleluia

1812 Overture (with chorus)

Carmina Burana

Tchaikovsky’s politically charged 1812 Overture was

composed to celebrate the Russian defeat of the

Napoleonic army. This stirring patriotic hymn has also

been adopted as a symbol of U.S. independence.

Carl Orff’s rousing Carmina Burana contains one of

the most versatile musical pieces in the entire Western

canon: the opening section, O Fortuna, featured in a

multitude of soundtracks for movies, advertisements,

video games and sports events.

Hailed for her “sparkling soprano” and “strong

presence,” young American soprano Amanda Hall is

earning a reputation for outstanding performances

of demanding repertoire on both the operatic and

concert stages.
