Celtic and Americana Fiddle: Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul
Although she generally leaves her Grammy, her nine All-Ireland Fiddle Championship awards, and the phone numbers of Riverdance and Sting at home, Eileen Ivers always brings to the stage her love for the Celtic music she grew up with. A child of Irish immigrants, the Bronx native celebrates not only the jubilant jigs and reels of her parents’ homeland, but also the Cajun, bluegrass, and folk tunes of her own country. What results is a sonic buffet that has been heard by presidents, featured on the soundtrack of Gangs of New York, and caused the New York Times to dub her “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin.”
Inside the Classics: Beethoven’s Tenth
Beethoven “only” wrote nine symphonies, but fortunately, 49 years after his death, Brahms was kind enough to step in. So influenced was the young composer that his first symphony was nicknamed “Beethoven’s Tenth” by a prominent conductor after its premier in 1876. In this concert, conductor Sarah Hicks and violist Sam Bergman explore the connections between the two composers and delve into what Brahms found so fascinating in Beethoven’s work, all the while giving Brahms the respect he deserves as a composer in his own right.
Returning from its historic tour to Cuba in May of 2015 and Carnegie Hall last March, the Grammy Award–winning Minnesota Orchestra celebrates its second century as one of America’s premier symphonic ensembles, gathering accolades from publications such as the New York Times.
