"How many concerts
have the narrative
power of exciting
theater?
How
many concerts
offer such a rich
sense of discovering
new and vital music?
This is what we want all
concerts to be, though
we know it rarely
happens. An evening
of discovery and
enchantment,
a
reminder of how
illuminating a journey
a great song can be."

Fifty years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, NYFOS brings back one of its most beloved shows—a program that celebrates the explosion of African-American music and literature between the two World Wars. Awakening the world to the creative power of black America, Eubie Blake, Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Billy Strayhorn, and W. C. Handy led the way in jazz clubs and on Broadway, while J. Rosamond Johnson, William Grant Still, and Florence Price created a haunting repertoire for the recital stage. The program also features readings from the era’s iconic poets and novelists, including Langston Hughes and Paul Laurence Dunbar. more >

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum presents NYFOS

From Russia to Riverside Drive: Rachmaninoff and Friends

Sunday, November 8, 2015 at 1:30pm

Calderwood Performance Hall, Boston, MA

Tickets: www.gardnermuseum.org

Dina Kuznetsova, soprano; Shea Owens, baritone
Steven Blier and Michael Barrett, pianists

Before leaving his homeland, Sergei Rachmaninoff wrote some of the most ravishing songs in the repertoire--the eloquent last hurrah of the Romantic era. When he came to America he never again turned his hand to voice-and-piano music. But from his perch on West End Avenue he found himself surrounded by a new, modern spirit: the driving rhythms of the machine age and the irresistible appeal of jazz. We'll delve into the soulful cry of Rachmaninoff's Russian songs, and also sample the music he heard during his years in the States with songs by Gershwin, Korngold, and others. more >
