Masterworks 7: Russian Tales

EVENT DETAILS

James Lowe, conductor
Kristina Ploeger-Hekmatpanah, chorale director
Spokane Symphony Chorale
Inon Barnatan, piano

Audience favorite Inon Barnatan has been called “one of the most admired pianists of his generation” by The New York Times, and returns to Spokane with Tchaikovsky’s sweepingly romantic First piano concerto. When composer Borodin died suddenly at a fancy dress ball in 1887, his opera Prince Igor remained incomplete, leaving RimskyKorsakov and Glazunov to finish the work. The Polovtsian Dances from the opera tap into the deep wellspring of ancient Russian tribal history. Rimsky-Korsakov’s genius for orchestral color is also put to great effect in Scheherazade, a showpiece for any orchestra that tells the stories of Sinbad, shipwrecks and princesses, all woven together by a beguiling violin depicting the voice of Scheherazade herself.

THE MUSIC

Alexander Borodin - Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor
Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor, Op. 23
George Frederick McKay - Suite on Fiddler’s Themes
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - Scheherazade, Op.35


Experience a behind-the-scenes look at how Masterworks performances are perfected.  Watch the inner workings of the orchestra as James, the musicians and our guest artist shape and polish each work in the final rehearsal.

10am - Noon ; Tickets $25

GUEST ARTIST

Inon Barnatan, piano
 

“One of the most admired pianists of his generation” (New York Times), Inon Barnatan is celebrated for his poetic sensibility, musical intelligence, and consummate artistry. He is the recipient of both a prestigious 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant and Lincoln Center’s 2015 Martin E. Segal Award, which recognizes “young artists of exceptional accomplishment.” He was recently named the new Music Director of the La Jolla Music Society Summerfest, beginning in 2019.

A regular soloist with many of the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors, the Israeli pianist recently completed his third and final season as the inaugural Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic. After his recent debuts with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, and Chicago, Baltimore, and Seattle Symphonies, he opened the season with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, and made recent debuts with both the London and Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestras.
