2:00 pm | Carnegie Hall, New York NY
Catch the CSO in the Empire State! "The passion and dramatic verve Muti masterfully elicited ... is simply magnificent," said NPR about the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's music director. In this program, Riccardo Muti conducts Scriabin's Symphony No. 1, a passionate ode to art - the composer's first major orchestral work. Prokofiev's Alexander Nevsky, a cantata drawn from his complete score to Eisenstein's classic film, comprises music accompanying some of the film's most memorable scenes, including the grim chant of invading Teutonic knights, the Russian people's rousing exhortation to battle, a heartfelt lament, and the Battle on the Ice - one of the greatest fusions of image and music ever made.

Prokofiev's cantata Alexander Nevsky, by contrast, is full of fire and steel, its imaginative orchestration and rousing choruses evoking Russia's medieval victory over invading Teutonic knights.

Fanfare for a New Era was written as a celebration of Lt. Col. Lowell E. Graham's appointment as Commander of the United States Air Force Band. The work, composed by Jack Stamp, opens with an energetic trumpet motif that is expanded and developed through a variety of characters and atmospheres. Also featured on the program is Frank Ticheli's Angels in the Architecture, a work that unfolds as a dramatic conflict between the two extremes of human existence: one divine, the other evil. The work begins and ends with an "angel," represented by a solo voice, who sings a Shaker melody meant to inspire purity and light. Other representations of light - played by instruments rather than sung - include a traditional Hebrew song of peace and the well-known 16th-century hymn "Old Hundredth." These three borrowed songs, despite their varied religious origins, are meant to transcend any one religion, representing the more universal human ideals of peace, hope, and love. Program to include: Jack Stamp - Fanfare for a New Era Frank Ticheli - Angels in the Architecture James Curnow - Rejouissance Derek Bourgeois - Serenade Op. 22 Philip Sparke - Dance Movements
