The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, (CMS) is one of eleven constituents of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the largest performing arts complex in the world. The Chamber Music Society has its home in Alice Tully Hall – the finest hall in the world for chamber music. Through its performance, education, and recording/broadcast activities, it draws more people to chamber music than any other organization of its kind.

This riveting program juxtaposes two musical giants of the Romanticism: Antonin Dvořák and Johannes Brahms. Contemporaries and friends, Dvořák and Brahms drew mutual inspiration from each other, and it was to Brahms’ Gypsy-inspired Hungarian Dances that Dvořák turned for his own Slavonic Dances, which proved a sure-fire hit with audiences ever since its premiere.

Brahms’ C minor Piano Trio–a work of searing intensity and epic proportions–can be heard before intermission, while Dvořák’s Piano Quintet in A major, one of the finest piano quintets in the repertoire, brings the program to a thrilling close. Like most of Dvořák’s output, it is filled with melodic inspiration, rhythmic vitality, emotional impact, and that particular nationalistic voice in his music that is undeniably his own.

Joining CMS Co-Artistic Director, pianist Wu Han, for this program is a cohort of some of the most exciting young artists on the distinguished CMS roster: pianist Michael Brown, violinists Paul Huang and Chad Hoopes, violist Matthew Lipman, and cellist Dmitri Atapine.

Metropolitan Opera Season Begins October 7

WHO:  The Del Oro Theatre

WHAT:  The Metropolitan Opera, LIVE in HD

WHEN:  Series begins Saturday, October 7 at 9:55 AM

WHERE:  The Del Oro Theatre, 165 Mill Street, Grass Valley

TICKETS:  $22 Adults, $20 Seniors, $18 Children 12 and under & students with ID; Available online at www.sierratheaters.com or at the Del Oro Box Office

INFO:  www.sierratheaters.com, 530-477-1100

The Metropolitan Opera’s Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met:  Live in HD celebrates its twelfth season this year, and the Del Oro Theatre is proud to broadcast this incredible season locally.  The Del Oro Theatre in downtown Grass Valley, in partnership with Music in the Mountains and InConcert Sierra, will be presenting 10 live transmissions on Saturday mornings beginning October 7 with Bellini’s Norma.  This popular series brings the thrill of world class opera to audiences around the world by transmitting the productions live via satellite from New York City and broadcasting them in real time in stunning HD on the big screen.

“Ponselle, Milanov, Sutherland, Callas … after last night, Radvanovsky can add her name to the list,” declared the Huffington Post when Sondra Radvanovsky made her Met role debut as Norma in 2013. The 2017–18 season opens with a new production of Bellini’s masterpiece, starring Radvanovsky as the Druid priestess and Joyce DiDonato as her archrival, Adalgisa—a casting coup for bel canto fans. Tenor Joseph Calleja is Pollione, Norma’s unfaithful lover, and Carlo Rizzi conducts. Sir David McVicar’s evocative production sets the action deep in a Druid forest where nature and ancient ritual rule.  Norma begins at Del Oro at 9:55 am, Saturday, October 7.

The very next week comes Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte on October 14.  Music Director Emeritus James Levine conducts the full-length German version of Mozart’s magical fable, seen in Julie Taymor’s spectacular production, which captures both the opera’s earthy comedy and its noble mysticism.

The final opera of 2017 will be The Exterminating Angel on November 18.  Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of this opera by Thomas Adès, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.

Tickets for The Met:  Live in HD are $22 Adults, $20 Seniors, and $18 Students and Children 12 and under.  Advanced tickets are available at the Del Oro Box Office or online at www.sierratheaters.com.  For more information, please call 530-477-1100, or visit www.sierratheaters.com.

Assad Brothers and Avi Avital

Saturday, February 24, 2018 • 7:30 pm

Sérgio & Odair Assad, guitar duo
Avi Avital, mandolin

The celebrated Brazilian-born Assad Brothers with their exceptional artistry and uncanny musicianship, team up with Israeli superstar Avi Avital, the first mandolin soloist to be nominated for a classical Grammy Award and a fervent and “explosively charismatic” (New York Times) player, to present a brand-new program that explores classical repertoire reimagined for guitar and mandolin.

The trio explores both classical repertoire reimagined for guitar and mandolin, and traditional choro music, a popular genre in Brazil known for its upbeat rhythms and bravura virtuosity.

SÉRGIO AND ODAIR ASSAD

“Because they have been performing together for most of their lives, and because they play from memory, there is a lively interaction between them that creates the impression that they are improvising like a couple of virtuosic, perhaps even telepathic, jazz players.” – The New York Times

“Call it one of the most engaging musical presentations of the season. Better yet, call it a stunning display of the music of the Western Hemisphere.” – The Los Angeles Times

AVI AVITAL

“A musician who recognizes no boundaries except those of good taste and who has the artistry to persuade listeners to follow him anywhere.” – Gramophone

$40 General 

$35 members      

$17 youth (5-17)

The Assad Brothers: Their exceptional artistry and uncanny ensemble playing come from both a family rich in Brazilian musical tradition and from studies with the guitar/lutenist Monina Távora (1921-2011), a disciple of Andrés Segovia. In addition to setting new performance standards, the Assads have played a major role in creating and introducing new music for two guitars. Their virtuosity has inspired a wide range of composers to write for them including Astor Piazzolla, Terry Riley, Radamés Gnattali, Marlos Nobre, Nikita Koshkin, Roland Dyens, Jorge Morel, Edino Krieger and Francisco Mignone.

Now Sérgio Assad is adding to their repertoire by composing music for the duo and for various musical partners both with Symphony Orchestra and in recitals. They have worked extensively with such renowned artists as Yo-Yo Ma, Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Fernando Suarez Paz, Paquito D’Rivera, Gidon Kremer and Dawn Upshaw.

The Assads began playing the guitar together at an early age and went on to study for seven years with Dona Monina. Their international career began with a major prize at the 1979 Young Artists Competition in Bratislava. Odair is based in Brussels where he teaches at Ecole Supérieure des Arts. Sérgio resides in San Francisco, where he is on the faculty of the SF Conservatory.

The Assads are also recognized as prolific recording artists, primarily for the Nonesuch and GHA labels. In 2001, Nonesuch Records released “Sérgio and Odair Assad Play Piazzolla,” which later won a Latin Grammy. Their seventh Nonesuch recording, released in the fall 2007, is called “Jardim Abandonado” after a piece by Antonio Carlos Jobim.  It was nominated for Best Classical Album and Sérgio went on to win the Latin Grammy for his composition, “Tahhiyya Li Oussilina.”

The Assad Brothers collaboration with cellist Yo-Yo Ma is ongoing. In 2003 the Brazilian record “Obrigado Brazil” was released featuring Rosa Passos, Egberto Gismonti, and Cyro Baptista. Sérgio arranged several of the works on the disc, which captured a Grammy in 2004.  In 2009, the brothers were featured on Yo-Yo Ma’s chart topping release, “Songs of Joy & Peace,” which features other guest artists as diverse as James Taylor and Dave Brubeck.  In the piece “Família” Yo-Yo plays Sérgio’s composition featuring mother, Angelina Assad, sister Badi and children Clarice, Rodrigo, and Carolina.  The release topped both the classical and the mainstream Billboard charts and won a Grammy for Best Classical Crossover.  In April 2012, Sergio and Odair toured North America with Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott, in a program of Latin American works as arranged by Sergio as well as some of his original compositions, highlighted by concerts at the new Smith Center in Las Vegas and Chicago’s Symphony Hall.  (https://assadbrothers.com)

Avi Avital: Acknowledged by The New York Times for his “exquisitely sensitive playing” and “stunning agility”, Grammy-nominated mandolinist Avi Avital is one of the world’s most exciting and adventurous musicians. He is deeply committed to building a fresh legacy for the mandolin through virtuosic performance in a range of genres and commissioning new works for mandolin.

Avi Avital is internationally regarded for his performances at venues including Carnegie Hall (Weill Hall), Lincoln Center, Berlin Philharmonie, KKL Luzern, Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing and the Wigmore Hall. He has appeared as soloist with the Berliner Symphoniker, Orchestre National de Montpellier, Oxford Philomusica, Sczczecin Philharmonic, Potsdam Kammerakademie, Philharmonischer Kammerorchester Berlin, Metropolis Ensemble NY, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Geneva Camerata, Israel Philharmonic, I Pomeriggi Musicali di Milano and the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra. He has collaborated extensively with artists such as Giora Feidman, Dawn Upshaw and Richard Galliano and has also been featured at the Tanglewood, Luzern, Spoleto, and Ravenna summer Festivals.

Avi Avital is the first mandolin player to receive a GRAMMY nomination in the category “Best Instrumental Soloist” (2010) for his recording of Avner Dorman’s Mandolin Concerto (Metropolis Ensemble/Andrew Cyr). He has won numerous competitions and awards including Germany’s ECHO Prize for his 2008 recording with the David Orlowsky Trio and the AVIV Competition (2007), the preeminent national competition for Israeli soloists.

Avi has also performed with our February artist Bridget Kibbey:

The Metropolitan Opera’s Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met:  Live in HD celebrates its twelfth season this year, and the Del Oro Theatre is proud to broadcast this incredible season locally.  The Del Oro Theatre in downtown Grass Valley, in partnership with Music in the Mountains and InConcert Sierra, will be presenting 10 live transmissions on Saturday mornings beginning October 7 with Bellini’s Norma.  This popular series brings the thrill of world class opera to audiences around the world by transmitting the productions live via satellite from New York City and broadcasting them in real time in stunning HD on the big screen.

“Ponselle, Milanov, Sutherland, Callas … after last night, Radvanovsky can add her name to the list,” declared the Huffington Post when Sondra Radvanovsky made her Met role debut as Norma in 2013. The 2017–18 season opens with a new production of Bellini’s masterpiece, starring Radvanovsky as the Druid priestess and Joyce DiDonato as her archrival, Adalgisa—a casting coup for bel canto fans. Tenor Joseph Calleja is Pollione, Norma’s unfaithful lover, and Carlo Rizzi conducts. Sir David McVicar’s evocative production sets the action deep in a Druid forest where nature and ancient ritual rule.  Norma begins at Del Oro at 9:55 am, Saturday, October 7.

The very next week comes Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte on October 14.  Music Director Emeritus James Levine conducts the full-length German version of Mozart’s magical fable, seen in Julie Taymor’s spectacular production, which captures both the opera’s earthy comedy and its noble mysticism.

The final opera of 2017 will be The Exterminating Angel on November 18.  Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of this opera by Thomas Adès, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.

Tickets for The Met:  Live in HD are $22 Adults, $20 Seniors, and $18 Students and Children 12 and under.  Advanced tickets are available at the Del Oro Box Office or online at www.sierratheaters.com.  For more information, please call 530-477-1100, or visit www.sierratheaters.com.
