Stars Aligned I Avi Avital, mandolin |

Ksenija Sidorova, accordion
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2018 | 7PM

 

In a night of Stars Aligned, Orpheus welcomes two innovative artists who are reinventing their time-honored instruments: Latvia’s Ksenija Sidorova on the accordion and Israel’s Avi Avital on the mandolin. From a novel rendition of Bach to a world premiere by Golden Globe®, GRAMMY® and Emmy® nominated composer Benjamin Wallfisch (Andy Muschietti’s It, Blade Runner 2049, Hidden Figures), these trailblazing soloists showcase their enormous sonic spectrum. Evocative concert music from Waxman, Rota, and Rózsa attests to the skills that made these European immigrants early titans of Hollywood film scoring.

Orpheus cozies up with the Homeward Sound of Mozart and Dvořák, featuring works that reflect their rich lives in Salzburg, Vienna and Prague. Since the ensemble’s earliest days, the piano concertos of Mozart have been a prime meeting ground for unforgettable collaborations; now Spanish pianist Javier Perianes follows such luminaries as Alfred Brendel, Radu Lupu, Richard Goode, and Emanuel Ax. Contributing to the orchestra’s ongoing American Notes series, New York fixture James Matheson presents a new work commissioned by Orpheus.
