Twenty-Somethings

ABOUT TWENTY-SOMETHINGS

An intriguing combination of works written by well-known composers when they were in their twenties begins with a Debussy suite which includes Clair de lune, one of the most famous musical pieces of all time, followed by NCMF Artistic Director Clive Greensmith performing Dobrinka Tabakova’s charming arrangement of Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata.

 

Shostakovich’s acerbic wit and seriousness are then on full display in incidental music he wrote for “the most scandalous production (of Hamlet) in the history of Shakespeare,” presented here as a theatrical collaboration with local actors.

DEBUSSY (orch. Mouton)     Suite Bergamasque
SCHUBERT/TABAKOVA     Arpeggione Sonata
SHOSTAKOVICH     Hamlet, Suite from the Theatre Music, op, 32a

ABOUT LATIN BRIDGES

Handel’s Messiah returns to the RCO after over two decades in a Spanish translation as we highlight Easter selections from El Mesías: Messiah for a New World. A chamber orchestration of Gershwin’s infectious Havana-inspired Cuban Overture and Piazzolla’s fresh tango-jazz-classical Sinfonietta fill out this program influenced by Latin connections.
