@New World Symphony - WallCast - The New World Symphony and Miami City Ballet will come together to perform a celebration of Igor Stravinsky and George Balanchine, two icons of the 20th century whose decades-long friendship proved to be one of the most prolific artistic pairings of their time. Blending music and movement, the two cultural giants gave the world unforgettable productions and inspired students Michael Tilson Thomas and Lourdes Lopez, who now embolden the next generation of artists in our community. Included in this tribute is Apollon musagète—their first collaboration inspired by the Greek God of music and his muse visitors. World-renowned violinist James Ehnes returns for Stravinsky’s Concerto, which becomes even more mind-blowing when paired with Balanchine’s choreography. Stravinsky’s raucous Circus Polka comes alive with immersive projections by video artist Emily Eckstein.

This will mark the first large-scale collaboration between the two esteemed institutions and is inspired by NWS's Michael Tilson Thomas and Miami City Ballet's Lourdes Lopez's personal connections to Stravinsky and Balanchine.

Program
Stravinsky : Apollon musagète
Stravinsky : Circus Polka
Stravinsky : Violin Concerto

@New World Symphony - WallCast - MTT joins violinist Nicola Benedetti—a firecracker of talent and energy—in celebrating classical music’s swoon-worthy Romantics and dance masters. Perfectly showcasing Benedetti’s exquisite virtuosity, Sergei Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto showcases Russian folk tunes and a fiery Spanish finale. Never before performed by NWS, Robert Schumann’s Third Symphony is awash with yearning and joy, masterfully capturing the spirit of the Rhine which served as the composer’s muse. The story of Prometheus—titan, romantic hero and thief of fire—is rife with action, struggle and redemption. Franz Liszt brings the Greek myth to life in a symphonic poem he called “stormy and dazzling.”

Program
Liszt : Prometheus
Prokofiev : Violin Concerto No. 2
Schumann : Symphony No. 3, "Rhenish"

@New World Symphony - WallCast - Dazzling pianist Joyce Yang takes the New World Center stage for the first time to perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s Second Concerto. The work combines the best of all Classical worlds—Beethoven’s charm and surprises inspired by Haydn and Mozart. It took Witold Lutosławski four years to write his Concerto for Orchestra, a virtuosic showpiece for the entire ensemble led by Minnesota Orchestra Music Director Osmo Vänskä. Embracing nostalgia for his hometown, Zoltán Kodály encapsulated Hungarian folk traditions and gypsy influences in Dances of Galánta, culminating in a dizzying finale.

Program

Beethoven : Piano Concerto No. 2
Lutosławski : Concerto for Orchestra

Great in scope and substance, Franz Schubert’s final chapter to the symphonic genre is a true tour de force, infused with the genius songwriter’s fearless exuberance. Start with a cheerful, high-octane Polish folk dance from Mikhail Glinka’s opera A Life for the Tsar. This will be a formidable finale to an epic season!
