OUR NEXT CONCERT: MUSIC OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR AND LATIN AMERICA. VIVA LA REVOLUCION!
PREMIERE A BIG HIT
The start of an epic season!
GBS' world tour Revolutions and Revelations opened to numerous ovations on Saturday night, September 16.
Eric Jacobsen returned to our podium for his fourth season with a survey of Russian music, before and after the Russian Revolution of 1917: Glinka, Paert, Rachmaninoff and Shostakovich. Piano virtuoso Alex Beyer performed a rapturous Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, followed by an encore and several minutes of standing ovation. The concert was preceded by a gala Opening Night Reception in The Klein's upper lobby -- Moscow Mules (with vodka made locally by Asylum Distilleries of Bridgeport) and sumptuous Russian hors d'oeuvres. "Music Lovers of the World Unite" was the first of five series concerts this season, three others of which explore the music of the Spanish Civil War, the French Revolution and the American Revolution. The December concert will, as usual, feature holiday favorites with great classics associated with the season. Hear more about the concert and the season in this WICC interview.
