Donizetti: L’ASSEDIO DI CALAIS (THE SIEGE OF CALAIS)

Libretto by Salvatore Cammarano (based on Luigi Marchionni’s play L’assedio di Calais)
Conducted by Gil Rose

Donizetti’s L’assedio di Calais (The Siege of Calais) focuses on the bleak wartime and tales of courage and self-sacrifice in Edward the III’s year-long Siege of Calais during the Hundred Years’ War. This rarely-heard Italian bel canto work has undeservedly been absent from the operatic stage but recent revivals have shown it to be a work of great beauty and poetry. Salvatore Cammarano wrote the Italian libretto, which has been described as “…a remarkable libretto, the closest Cammarano ever got to real poetry, particularly in his description of the embattled city and the heartfelt pride of its citizens”

Landmarks Dance Carnival

 

“Music to move by” from many cultures features dancers from across the city. Composer and drummer Ryan Edwards teams up with Apostolos Paraskevas to create a new work for young drummers and dancers from Camp Harbor View and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston. The evening culminates in a grand performance of Copland’s Rodeo with choreography by Peter DiMuro. It will be hard for anyone to sit still for this season finale. But at Boston Landmarks Orchestra concerts, that’s perfectly okay. Rain Date: August 24 at Hatch Shell.

Anthems of the World

 

Fired by local pride, some of Western music’s most passionate works are closely identified with their cultures of origin. At its premiere, Finlandia was heard to symbolize Finnish independence. It is now considered a second Finnish national anthem. Dvořák urged American composers to borrow from the spirituals, much as he had employed Czech folk songs in his own writing. Márquez’s Danzón No. 2 has become one of the most popular of all orchestral dances. The young musicians of ZUMIX are featured in a Landmarks-commissioned work they have created with composer Gonzalo GrauRain date: August 10 at Hatch Shell. If it is also raining on the 10th, the concert will be moved indoors to Kresge Auditorium at MIT (48 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA).

Beethoven Symphony No. 9

 

The drama of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony—a journey from darkness to light—is one of the glories of Western art. Beethoven believed in music’s power to redeem a suffering humanity, to bring us closer to heaven in this life. His music to Goethe’s play, Egmont, came at the apex of his “Heroic Period.” The story honors the sacrifice of a nobleman condemned to death for resisting tyranny. The sublime Romance in F for solo violin and orchestra is among Beethoven’s most sweetly lyrical instrumental works. Rain date: August 3 at Hatch Shell or Kresge Auditorium at MIT.

Harvard Summer Chorus

Michael Ostrzyga, Guest Conductor

Solists:

Winnie Nieh, soprano

Caitlin Felsman, mezzo-soprano

Patrick Waters, tenor

Sumner Thompson, baritone

This season, the Harvard Summer Chorus will perform Mozart’s Requiem like you’ve never heard it before. Upon his death in 1791, Mozart had only completed fragments and outlines of his work, and Franz Süßmayr composed the rest of the “Mozart” Requiem the following year. The Summer Chorus will journey through the mystery surrounding the work, opening the concert by performing only the fragments of the Requiem that Mozart himself composed.  The concert will conclude with the first performance of a new completion of the Requiem written by Ostrzyga, who will also conduct our performances. Maestro Ostrzyga is the Music Director at the University of Cologne where he conducts the Symphony Orchestra, Choir, and Chamber Choir, and he has gained an international reputation as a composer of choral music, having been commissioned by performers and festivals around the globe. The chorus is once again honored to be joined by the renowned Boston Modern Orchestra Project.

Jerome Robbins - The Concert
Music by Frédéric Chopin

Robbins' comic parody of a classical music concert is a light-hearted ballet about the complexities of relationships and what it means to be human.
