THE SYMPHONIC SPECTACULAR Features Mussorgsky, Ravel & Gershwin CAS Players Take Centerstage

CAPE ANN SYMPHONY

THE 64th SEASON: A SEASON TO REMEMBER

Yoichi Udagawa, Music Director

 The sultry concert program for the Symphonic Spectacular concert features passionate masterpieces including Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition,George Gershwin’s An American in Paris and Maurice Ravel’s Boléro. Members of the orchestra are featured in the classic works. Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is a tour de force as orchestrated by Bolero composer Maurice Ravel. Mussorgsky originally composed Pictures for piano only and wrote the piece in memory of his close friend and artist Victor Hartmann who died suddenly at the age of 39. An exhibition of more than 400 of Hartmann’s works was mounted in the Academy of Fine Arts in Saint Petersburg which Mussorgsky attended. Pictures at an Exhibition evokes a person strolling through the exhibit and stopping along the way to contemplate the various paintings and drawings on view.

Cape Ann Symphony’s SEASON OPENING SPECTACULAR This SAT 9/26

CapeAnnSymphontFall2015You probably know Ravel’s Boléro from the movie “10” in which Bo Derek’s character called it, “The most descriptive sex music ever written.”

If you’re not so sure about that, perhaps you should come see the Cape Ann Symphony perform it, along with Gershwin’s An American in Paris and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition (all three of these comprising an extraordinary musical feast) this Saturday, Sept 26 at 8pm at MERHS Auditorium.  (I’m not sure, but I think it’s likely that the Symphony is playing Ravel’s arrangement of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.  If anybody knows for sure, please comment on this post.)

GET TICKETS HERE.

I’ve got two entertaining Boléro videos to warm you up:

The Copenhagen Philharmonic flash mob performing Boléro at Copenhagen Central Station.  (It’ll likely be quieter in the auditorium on Saturday — with better acoustics too.)

Here’s the famous scene from “10” (don’t be fooled, the first music you hear is Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet).  Wait for Boléro.  It’s worth it.

THE SYMPHONIC SPECTACULAR

Launches Cape Ann Symphony’s 64th Seas

Cape Ann Symphony kicks off the orchestra’s 64th Concert Season on Saturday, September 26 at 8 pm with Symphonic Spectacular featuring a sultry program of timeless favorites from superstar composers Mussorgsky, Ravel and Gershwin at the CAS performance venue at Manchester-Essex High School Auditorium on 36 Lincoln Street in Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA. Founded in Gloucester in 1951, the Cape Ann Symphony is a professional orchestra of over 70 players from throughout the New England area. They perform a subscription season of four concerts per year plus several Pops and youth concerts. The Cape Ann Symphony concerts are held at the Manchester-Essex High School auditorium on 36 Lincoln Street in Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA. Manchester-Essex High School Auditorium is handicapped accessible. Ticket prices are $40 for adults, $35 for senior citizens, $5 for Youth age 18 and under. For tickets and information, call 978-281-0543 or visit www.capeannsymphony.org.

 

The concert program for the Symphonic Spectacular concert features passionate masterpieces including Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, George Gershwin’s An American in Paris and Maurice Ravel’s Boléro. Conductor Yoichi Udagawa offers a sneak peek into the evening’s program, “Composed of three virtuoso showpieces for orchestra, the first concert of the Cape Ann Symphony’s 64th season is a symphonic triumph! These fascinating pieces really give the orchestra an opportunity to demonstrate their skill, musicianship and passion for music. Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is a tour de force in particular for the brass and woodwind players, An American in Paris by legendary composer George Gershwin paints a musical portrait of a singular city in a sparking display of orchestral color and Maurice Ravel’s Boléro is one relentless, unstoppable, inescapable musical build up and massive explosion that always makes audiences go absolutely wild and crazy. It will be an exciting and thrilling way to open the orchestra’s 64th Season, and we can’t wait to present it to our wonderful audiences.” Composer Maurice Ravel provides a link to all three pieces in the program: he orchestrated Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition gave lessons to Gershwin in Paris, and he wrote Bolero.

The Symphony Board of Directors named Yoichi Udagawa the Music Director and Conductor of the Cape Ann Symphony in the summer of 2000 after a yearlong search. In addition to his leadership of Cape Ann Symphony, he is Music Director and Conductor of the Melrose Symphony Orchestra, and the Quincy Symphony Orchestra and a cover conductor at the Boston Pops Orchestra. Mr. Udagawa is on the faculty of the Boston Conservatory where he teaches conducting. Frequently invited to guest conduct, Mr. Udagawa has worked with many different orchestras including the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, Nobeoka Philharmonic Orchestra, the Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra of Boston, the University of Texas Symphony Orchestra, the Indian Hill Symphony, the Garden State Philharmonic, the Brown University Orchestra, the Syracuse Society for New Music, the Boston Conservatory Orchestra, the Midcoast Symphony Orchestra, the Newton Symphony, the Austin Civic Orchestra, and the Mid-Texas Symphony.

Yoichi Udagawa, Cape Ann Symphony Music Director and Conductor

Mr. Udagawa is at home in popular and contemporary music as well as the standard symphonic repertoire.

He is also an integral part of the Cape Ann Symphony Youth Outreach programs to area schools.

Yoichi Udagawa, the son of a nuclear physicist father and singer/artist mother, was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1964. His family immigrated to the United States soon thereafter. He began playing the violin at age four and made his conducting debut at age fifteen. After receiving a music degree from the University of Texas at Austin, he continued advanced studies in conducting with Gunther Schuller, Seiji Ozawa, Morihiro Okabe, and Henry Charles Smith. A fan of many different styles of music, Mr. Udagawa also enjoys performing gospel music in addition to his conducting activities.

It’s time for Beethoven tomorrow (SAT) with The Cape Ann Symphony Mother’s Day Concert feat. BSO Soloists

Past_PresentLast month (in this post) I pointed to the roots of today’s music.

And a few weeks ago (in this post) you saw the 2nd movement of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony used in Academy-Award winning film, The King’s Speech.

So to help you get ready for tomorrow night’s powerful Cape Ann Symphony concert (Get tickets here), I’ve put a few other films and videos using this iconic music at the end of this post.

In addition to Beethoven, they’ve invited Boston Symphony Orchestra father and daughter team Richard and Erin Svoboda as soloists for Michael Gandolfi’s Double Concerto for Clarinet and Bassoon.  Plus you’ll hear an overture by Rossini, the most popular opera composer of his time.

You really do want to be there!  Get tickets here.

 

Cape Ann Symphony Mother’s Day Concert Saturday, May 9 feat. BSO Soloists

Last month (in this post) I pointed to the roots of today’s music.  This month, the Cape Ann Symphony takes the whole thing one step farther.  First of all, they’re playing one of Beethoven’s most extraordinary compositions, the 7th symphony.  My guess is that the audience will jump to their feet after this finale just as they did last month for Beethoven’s first piano concerto, featuring David Deveau.

Beethoven’s 7th has been used in a number of films, most recently the 2nd movement in a tremendously powerful scene in which Academy Award winner Colin Firth as King George VI delivers a triumphant speech after struggling all his life with a terrible stutter.  Check out that scene in this video:

Now imagine hearing the whole symphony live.

And if that wasn’t enough, they’ve invited Boston Symphony Orchestra father and daughter team Richard and Erin Svoboda as soloists for Michael Gandolfi’s Double Concerto for Clarinet and Bassoon.  Plus you’ll hear an overture by Rossini, the most popular opera composer of his time.  You really do want to be there!  Get tickets here.
