2018-19 Season at Carnegie Hall
Gentle Giants I Nobuyuki Tsujii, piano
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2018 | 8PM
Tchaikovsky bared his sensitive soul in the String Quartet No. 1, his first mature piece of chamber music; now Christopher Theofanidis, one of the most vivid orchestral composers alive, expands Tchaikovsky’s introspective essay into a radiant Chamber Symphony. Fratres by Estonia’s Arvo Pärt also marked a personal breakthrough, with Gregorian chant and church bells guiding this musical mystic toward radical new simplicity and spirituality. The beloved pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii joins Orpheus for a vibrant new orchestration of Chopin’s early Piano Concerto No. 2 by composer Shuying Li.
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.

Homeward Sound I Javier Perianes, piano
SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 2019 | 7PM
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.
2018-19 Season at 92Y

Kaufmann Concert Hall at 92Y
Bleeding Hearts | Steven Isserlis, cello
The British cellist Steven Isserlis, whose playing “is as passionate as it poetical” (The Sunday Times), explores the plangent emotions and sonic immediacy of C.P.E. Bach, the most expressive scion of his father/teacher. As for composers with Bleeding Hearts, no combination exudes more pathos than Schubert and Mahler, as demonstrated in the transcription of the “Death and the Maiden” Quartet for string orchestra.

Kaufmann Concert Hall at 92Y
Merry Pranks | Mahan Esfahani, harpsichord
The Orpheus 92Y series ends with Merry Pranks, including Richard Strauss’ rendering of a fabled trickster, played in a lively arrangement for chamber ensemble. The Iranian harpsichord virtuoso Mahan Esfahani juggles tradition and disruption in neoclassical marvels by Falla and Martinů, and Mozart’s brilliant Quintet for Piano and Winds (K. 452) wears the garb of a chamber symphony in a reworking by Jean Françaix. It’s a season full of fresh sounds and surprising looks for Orpheus, but still the oldest principle in this self-guided ensemble remains constant: to approach each and every interpretation with fresh ears and clear sightlines, so that anything can happen in the moment.
Orpheus is proud to partner with Tarisio, the leading international venue for fine instruments and bows, for this new salon-style chamber music series entitled Twilight at Tarisio.
