JQOP is thrilled to announce the launch of our

Beethoven Ensemble!

Next year, JQOP will offer music classes three times per week during the school day to over 100 students with physical challenges at Josiah Quincy Elementary School.

FOUR WINDS 四面來風
Music Dialogue and Cooperation (Series 5)
with
Meng-Chieh Liu 劉孟捷, piano
Borromeo String Quartet
and
The Forbidden City Chamber Orchestra 紫禁城室內樂團



中華表演藝術基金會,將於三月二十五日星期六 ,於新英格蘭音樂學院喬登廳 (Jordan Hall),舉辦 《四面來風》- 音樂國際對話(系列之5)音樂會 ,由 中國音樂學院的紫禁城室內樂團,新英格蘭音樂學院的駐院藝術家 Borromeo 弦樂四重奏,和柯蒂斯音樂學院及新英格蘭音樂學院兩所學校教授 著名鋼琴家劉孟捷合作演出。當晚節目精彩 ,曲目包含有古曲 『寒鴉戲水  』, 及『春江花月夜 』, 及中國著名作曲家葉小剛應約創作的《光明行》的室内乐版本世界首演。表達了作曲家對劉天華先生的敬仰和追念 。 音樂會還將演出 柯蒂斯音樂學院作曲家 David Ludwig 的《百合、歌謠和星辰》(為簫、鋼琴和弦樂),中國作曲家鄒航的《十變五化》(為中國樂器和弦樂四重奏)等,旨在探索中西音樂文化的對比與交融。 這是紫禁城室內樂團繼 2014 - 2015在天津、西安和北京 與劉孟捷和 Borromeo 弦樂四重奏 成功的聯合演出之後,再次聯袂演出。





紫禁城室內樂團是活躍在世界舞台和具有廣泛影響的中國民族室內樂團,由來自中國民族音樂的最高學府中國音樂學院著名的11位音樂家組成。2008年成立以來多次參加國內外的重大音樂活動,足跡遍布世界各地。是中國對外交流的高端藝術家團體。 近年來,赴世界各地推廣中國優秀傳統音樂文化,同時著力推動中國民族音樂的時代創新,廣泛開展國際交流與合作。 紫禁城室內樂團出版了《梅邊四夢》《風聲》《天運》《四面來風》《四面來風》五張原創音樂 CD唱片,收錄多首中國民族音樂經典作品,並委約了中國、美國、俄羅斯、新西蘭、波蘭、菲律賓等國家的著名作曲家,為樂團創作了數十首風格多樣並具有實驗與探索性的原創作品。 被評為:體現了中國傳統音樂特有的華貴與典雅,表現了當代音樂舞台罕見的經典與魅力是探索中國當代音樂語境與世界對話的範例是當今世界最具影響力的室內樂團之一





Borromeo 弦樂四重奏是新英格蘭音樂學院的常駐藝術家、伊莎貝拉博物館 (Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum) 常駐四重奏、美國Taos音樂學校常駐四重奏。當是今最具探索精神的四重奏之一。


與紐約林肯中心室內樂協會以及華盛頓特區國會圖書館進行廣泛合作,美國國家公共廣播台常年播放其節目。 Borromeo弦樂四重奏團曾在全世界各地的多個音樂廳演出。 在其22年的歷史中,Borromeo四重奏曾獲得許多獎項,包括林肯中心艾弗里費雪事業獎 (Avery Fisher Career Grant)、林肯中心馬丁獎、美國室內樂克利夫蘭四重奏獎、音樂會青年藝術家國際試演獎以及法國埃維昂國際弦樂四重奏大賽最高獎。





鋼琴家劉孟捷,榮獲艾弗里費雪事業獎。1993年以柯蒂斯音樂學院學生之姿,臨時通知代替鋼琴大師安德烈瓦茲(André Watts)演出。這個完美的演出,贏得許多高度的讚賞 ,讓劉孟捷登上頭條新聞。一場場大型的音樂會邀約接踵而來。 劉孟捷的演奏事業正值蒸蒸日上時,卻被一場突如其來的罕見疾病中斷,亢奮的免疫系統侵蝕了他全身的肌肉、皮膚、關節和心臟等組織。在住院一年多期間,歷經癱瘓、全身無法動彈,醫生認為他活下來的機會微乎其微,即使能僥倖存活,也不可能繼續他的演奏生涯。但劉孟捷憑著堅毅的決心與嚴酷的物理治療,通過重重考驗,奇蹟似的恢復健康,繼續活耀在演奏舞台上。浴火重生之後,劉孟捷除舉辦鋼琴獨奏會外,也與許多知名指揮和樂團合作。 2002年獲艾弗里費雪事業獎及費城音樂基金會職業成就獎。 劉孟捷的現場音樂會常被電台廣播,電視台也曾將劉孟捷人生故事作成特輯播出。 其演出被《芝加哥古典樂評》讚譽為「完美無瑕,周衍且均衡的鋼琴演奏」。





當晚節目精彩,曲目有:


1,  漢調古曲: 寒鴉戲水 


2, David Ludwig: 百合、歌謠和星辰  (簫、鋼琴和弦樂)


3,  葉小綱: 光明行 (鋼琴和幾件中西樂器) (室內樂版本世界首演)                                                                            


4, 黃安倫 : 序曲與舞曲, 中國暢想曲之二  (鋼琴獨奏)


5,  古曲: 春江花月夜

The Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra
closes its 2016-2017season with
Mahler’s Symphony No. 6 on April 23


(Boston) Under the direction of leading Mahler interpreter Benjamin Zander, the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra takes on the challenge of Mahler’s Symphony No. 6 for its season finale, Sunday, April 23 at 3pm in Symphony Hall, 301 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston. While this conductor and orchestra is no stranger to Mahler’s work, having previously performed Symphony No. 1 in 2016, No. 5 in 2015, and No. 2 in 2013, this is their first performance of Symphony No. 6. Mahler’s Tragic sixth symphony is a rarity for youth orchestras due to its technical demands for winds in sets of three or four, rather than the usual pairs, the eight horns, six trumpets, and four trombones called for in the finale, use of offstage percussion, and the sounding of the infamously hard to define “Mahler box.” To guide the amazing talent of this young orchestra through this massive work, there is no better conductor than Zander, whose numerous performances and recordings of Mahler’s symphonies have garnered worldwide critical acclaim and five Grammy nominations.

“That this daunting, darkly dramatic, devastatingly tragic work is to be performed this April by a youth orchestra almost defies belief.  Yet from the very first rehearsal these young players have been totally involved and at home in the tempestuous and tormented world of this work, and have leapt eagerly to meet its challenges. I never fail to be stunned by what these young players are capable of – I know them so well, and yet, somehow, they seem to surpass even my own expectations. I truly expect this to be an unforgettable performance of a symphony that sears through one’s soul like no other.”  – Benjamin Zander

Tickets for the performance range from $15 to $30 with $10 tickets available for students and seniors. Tickets may be purchased by calling the box office at 617-236-0999 or by visitingbostonphil.org.  Advance sales for this performance will end Friday April 21, 2017 at 12:00pm after which all sales will be available through the Symphony Hall box office.

Benjamin Zander is the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and a speaker, educator, and guest conductor throughout the world. Through a long-standing relationship with London's famed Philharmonia Orchestra he is recording the complete cycle of Mahler symphonies, recordings that have been received with extraordinary critical acclaim both for the performance itself and Zander's now famous full-length disc explaining the music for the lay listener. Their recordings of Mahler 9th and Bruckner's 5th Symphony were nominated for Grammys for Best Orchestral Performance. Their latest recording, Mahler's 2nd Symphony, was nominated for a Grammy in 2014. He recorded Beethoven’s Ninth with The Philharmonia Orchestra and the Philharmonia Chorus in March 2017, followed by a performance at the Royal Festival Hall on March 18th.
In 1967, Mr. Zander joined the faculty at New England Conservatory, where he taught an interpretation class, conducted the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra, and conducted the conservatory orchestras. For 30 years he was the Artistic Director of the joint program between New England Conservatory's Preparatory School and The Walnut Hill School for the Performing Arts in Natick, Massachusetts.

Mr. Zander is one of the most sought after speakers in the world. He has given both the opening and the closing Keynote address at the World Economic Forum in Davos, where on another occasion he was awarded the Crystal award for "outstanding contributions in the Arts and international relations". In 2002 he was awarded the "Caring Citizen of the Humanities" Award by the International Council for Caring Communities at the United Nations. In honor of his 70th birthday, and 45 years of teaching, he was recently awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the New England Conservatory. His partner Rosamund Zander and he have collaborated on a best-selling book, The Art of Possibility which has been translated into seventeen languages.

George Li review: Miracles aplenty

Stellar Portland Piano International recitals reveal classical piano's next star

by TERRY ROSS
I could hardly believe my eyes. At intermission, the audience members were calmly milling around the Lincoln Hall lobby, chatting and buying refreshments and talking on their phones, as if they had just seen the first half of any old concert. Didn’t they realize what they’d just heard? I wanted to shake them out of their nonchalance and yell in their faces, “Don’t you have ears? This kid is great!”

George Li. Photo: Christian Steiner.
To call pianist George Li a kid is no exaggeration. But although short and baby-faced at 21 years of age, he’s nevertheless elaborately experienced, having given his professional debut at age 10 in Boston and won the silver medal at the 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition, among other honors. His onstage aplomb at his Portland Piano International recital on Saturday afternoon, February 11, at Portland State University, was immaculate. Before beginning each piece, Li paused over the keys as if meditating, raised his hands very slowly, and then plunged immediately into the rhythm of the music. Once underway, he looked as if he were concentrating intensely while also dreaming; his hands never stopped.
During the opener, Josef Haydn’s Sonata in B Minor, Mr. Li showed technique to spare and seemed to negotiate the music with no real effort. Fast and slow music alike emerged under his fingers with exemplary clarity. And with his phrasing and expression, he succeeded in making each of the three movements a little mini-sonata of its own, and this in a piece that although programmed more frequently than most of Haydn’s other five dozen sonatas, is not especially memorable. I thought to myself, if he can make this Haydn piece sing like this, what miracles might he produce with Chopin’s Second Sonata, the next piece on the program?
Miracles aplenty, as it turned out. Although many writers say that this sonata is built around its third movement, the famous funeral march, the only evidence for this is that the march was written first, as a stand-alone piece, and the other three movements were composed later to make up the sonata. Mr. Li proved, however, that the real center of the piece is the second movement Scherzo, which is as long as the third-movement march and full of beautiful phrases and melodies. To hear Mr. Li play it was about as good as it gets. After the march, the presto finale, less than a minute-and-a-half long, was a triumphant finish to the first half. I wasn’t the only audience member who rose in a shouting, standing ovation.
Then came that intermission, where people seemed to forget what they’d heard. Very curious.
The second half of the concert consisted of Sergei Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 6, about as different from Haydn and Chopin as you could find, full of Prokofiev’s signature muscularity and slashing rhythms, glowing with his distinctive personal harmonic language, tonal yet pushing at the edges of conventional tonality in its changes of key.
George Li came out, sat down, lingered with his hands over the keys, deep in his own trance. The he lowered his hands ever so slowly and was suddenly into the first-movement Allegro moderato of the most massive of all of Prokofiev’s nine sonatas. From this movement through to the closing Vivace, Mr. Li played with fire without ever losing contact with the various melodic lines. It was an astonishing performance of a very difficult piece. The audience jumped to its feet in the first of several standing ovations, after which Mr. Li played, as if to contrast with the Prokofiev, a short and quiet bonbon by Chopin.
I did not walk but ran to the box office immediately afterwards, making sure that I could attend the next day’s concert, which I had not originally intended to do. But you don’t hear a pianist like George Li every day or even every year, and I was intrigued to see what he would make of two Beethoven sonatas, Rachmaninov’s Corelli Variations, and Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, the famous one that Bugs Bunny played in Rhapsody Rabbit and that the Marx Brothers managed to work into several of their films.
On Sunday afternoon, after Saturday’s momentous performance, Mr. Li again more than rose to the occasion. In his opening rendition of Beethoven’s early Sonata No. 6, he did what he had done the day before with his concert-opening Haydn sonata: took a piece that is not especially memorable and made a gorgeous little mini-sonata of each of the three movements. When played with such finesse and emotion, the Sixth takes its place as a concert staple.
In Beethoven’s Sonata No. 18, Li jumped all over each of the four movements of this mature work. The closing Presto con fuoco (extremely fast with fire) brought a tumultuous end to the concert’s first half and another couple of standing ovations.
It’s puzzling and, one the other hand, not so puzzling, that Sergei Rachmaninov’s Variations on a Theme by Corelli, Op. 42, is not played more often and has not been recorded anywhere near as often as many other Rachmaninov pieces. Puzzling because it’s very beautiful and ingenious. Not so puzzling because Rachmaninov wrote it for himself, and he was one of the most talented pianists in music history. Which means it’s bloody difficult.
Under Mr. Li’s fingers, though, the Variations, based on a melody not really by Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) but a seemingly ubiquitous trope in late 17th- and early 18th-century music, seemed wonderfully varied and inevitable, particularly the seventh variation Vivace and the 14th and 15th variations slower iterations. That the piece ends in a slow movement, an Andante, underlines Rachmaninov’s genius and also George Li’s interpretive skill.
Next up were two pieces by Franz Liszt, famous in the 19th century as the most athletic and virtuosic of pianists. His Consolation No. 3 was a toothsome prelude to one of music history’s most memorable compositions: the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, somewhat more familiar in its orchestrated (by Liszt) version, but just as wild and fiery in its original piano arrangement. Here Mr. Li left absolutely nothing to chance, and alternately banged away or suavely soothed as the music demanded. His was a performance to remember of an extremely familiar piece, a daring piece of programming but one that worked very well.
It’s difficult to over-praise George Li’s excellence, especially as an interpreter of different kinds of European classical music, a skill we associate with much older and experienced pianists. He seems to have it all, and this reviewer would put him as one of the most likely inheritors of the crowns worn by Stephen Hough and Marc-André Hamelin, both in their fifties and a generation ahead.
