10/04/2015 Con Brio Downtown

Esprit's virtuosity shines in Widmann's astonishingly effervescent translation of fast, furious characteristics from Beethoven symphonies into a torrent, at breakneck speed, in his own tonal language.

To keep memories of another generation alive, Di Castri creates sounds of a fictitious culture to re-imagine places and traditions in an ever-evolving narrative. Adès' suite of a witty, high-camp tango, waltz and foxtrot carries listeners into the world of his 1995 chamber opera "Powder Her Face". Full program details available on our website.
