The Program

New Century Chamber Orchestra creates a sonic correspondence between Russia and the US during this program—Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, and Shostakovich pen missives from old Russia in the first half, and contemporary American composer Jennifer Higdon responds. One of the main pieces comes from Tchaikovsky’s opera Eugene Onegin, as the demure Tatyana confesses her love to the scoundrel Eugene at her writing desk late at night. Additionally, Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise is performed, borne on the history-making soprano of the Metropolitan Opera’s Ailyn Pérez, the first Hispanic winner of the Richard Tucker Award. Also featured is Shostakovich’s Elegy and Polka and Arvo Pärt’s Trisagion, bridging the gap to the trio of pieces by Higdon, who won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2010 for her Violin Concerto.
