About This Deal

The Philharmonic welcomes guest conductor Glen Cortese, one of four Music Director Finalists in Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic’s current Music Director search. He is Artistic Director of The Schenectady Symphony Orchestra and Artistic Director of the Western New York Chamber Orchestra. "I’m very excited to conduct this program Heroes and Legends with the Philharmonic. Each work on the program celebrates a reference to an historical heroic or legendary character. Though Brahms generally did not write program music, he had toyed with the idea of writing incidental music for Goethe’s Faust and his Tragic Overture was the result of that attempt. The Chaconne from the Red Violin by John Corigliano … is music that evolved from his film score for The Red Violin. In this story, the violin itself is the hero as we follow its dramatic journey through … history from the man who made it to the one who finally possessed the instrument. Ravel’s “Tzigane” is an incredibly virtuosic work for solo violin and orchestra which is a direct reference and tribute to the legendary and heroic violinists Paganini and Sarasate. The program ends with Stravinsky’s Suite from the Firebird (1919) … It’s filled with astonishing and virtuosic instrumental effects, a true “tour de force” for the orchestra.” This concert features violin soloist Miranda Cuckson performing Corigliano’s Chaconne from the Red Violin and Ravel’s Tzigane. Cuckson is acclaimed internationally as a soloist with Berlin Philharmonic, Teatro Colón, Strathmore, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music series, and National Sawdust among others.
