Revolutionaries: The late works of Beethoven & Ginastera
This spring, Concerts at One presents Revolutionaries: The late works of Beethoven and Ginastera. This festival celebrates the centennial of Alberto Ginastera by pairing music from his third compositional period with that of fellow revolutionary Ludwig van Beethoven. Although the two composers were born centuries and continents apart, both were caught up in the political upheaval of their respective times, and both are distinguished by the revolutionary nature of their work—especially that of their third periods. The festival takes place from in the spring of 2016 during Concerts at One at Trinity Church. It features more than 40 works, highlighted by Beethoven's epic Symphony No. 9 and Missa Solemnis, and Ginastera's Cello Concerto No. 1 and Psalm 150.
This week: NOVUS NY and The Choir of Trinity Wall Street featuring Mellissa Hughes and Jacquelyn Stucker, soprano, Melissa Attebury, alto, Vale Rideout, tenor, and Joseph Beutel, bass. Julian Wachner, conductor.
Hailed by the New Yorker as "expert and versatile musicians," NOVUS NY is the contemporary music orchestra of Trinity Wall Street. This Third Thursday concert will present works by Ginastera and Stravinsky.
