A Day With Golijov and Brahms
Sandy Eastman will be providing LLCC members with yet another opportunity to attend his pre-concert class and the symphony dress rehearsal for the San Luis Obispo Symphony concert coming up in March.
The San Luis Obispo Symphony offers as a gift to the community free dress rehearsals of its concerts during the afternoon (1pm-3pm) preceding the evening of the performance.
Sandy will present a lecture about the composers and the performers involved in today's orchestra performance. Then you will join Sandy and attend the San Luis Symphony for the dress rehearsal of Classics in the Cohan featuring two interesting pieces for voice and orchestra:
Golijov: Three Songs for Soprano & Orchestra
Brahms: Serenade #1
Based on poetry by Rosalia de Castro and Emily Dickinson, traditional Yiddish and Romanian melodies permeate Osvaldo Golijov's Three Songs for Soprano and Orchestra. Grammy nominated soprano Ava Pine in her first performance with our Symphony, gives this magical work its San Luis Obispo debut.
Playful minuets and rondos pay homage to such greats as Mozart and Beethoven in Brahms' Serenade #1. However, Brahms maintains his own style with warm solos by individual instruments that gives the Serenade an intimate of chamber music feel.
Eqaually at home with opera, oratorio and recital, Ava Pine brings great vocal and dramatic range to her work, as Opera News writes" Ava Pineall but stole the show. She turns seductive, determined, wounded and moved, she sailed sweetly through a vast range of pitches'.
This course will be in two parts. In the morning, there will be a lecture about the composers and about the pieces that are to be played in the rehearsal. In the afternoon, the class, as a group, attends the dress rehearsal of the performance. At the dress rehearsal SLO Symphony conductor Mike Nowak will speak as he conducts, giving background information, musicology, and note s on harmony. With Mike's broad knowledge and stage presence, the dress rehearsals are fairly comprehensive.
Saturday, November 9, 2013. 9:00 - 11:00 am. for course, followed by symphony dress rehearsal 1:00 - 3:30 pm.
The morning class will be at Ludwig Community Center, Room A. 864 Santa Rosa St. in SLO. The concert rehearsal will be in the Christopher Cohan Center in the PAC at Cal Poly.
