Frederic Rzewski - Solo Piano

Saturday, Apr 1, 2017 at 8:30 PM - English

The highly respected composer and virtuosic pianist Frederic Rzewski is recognized both for his innovative works and for his strong political convictions. A founding member of the groundbreaking improvisational collective MEV, Rzewski's pieces often bridge the gap between classical music and avant-garde jazz. Now based in Brussels, this major figure will make a rare appearance in the U.S. for a single Miami concert. Rzewski studied composition with Roger Sessions and Milton Babbitt, with composer Luigi Dallapiccola in Florence, Italy and with Elliot Carter in Berlin. In 1966 in Rome, Rzewski co-founded the seminal ensemble Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV) with fellow American composer-musicians Richard Teitelbaum and Alvin Curran.

"Mr. Rzewski, who at 78 is flinty and opinionated yet warm, is one of many great American composers whom a vast majority of America has never heard, or even heard of. But of that group, he may be the one with the most to say to us now."

Show more >>

The final Masterworks Series promises to be a memorable evening with Mendelssohn's popular Hebrides Overture opening the concert and Tchaikovsky's fateful 5th Symphony's brilliant fortissimos bring the season to a broad majestic finale.

Mendelssohn's music was quite revolutionary. Following Beethoven's footsteps in bridging the transition from the Classical tradition to the great Romantic experiment- his music was meant to be felt as much as heard.

The SFSO has joined an international consortium of orchestras by co-commissioning a work written for returning pianist Jeffrey Biegel by Composer/satirist Peter Schickele's fictitious 18th Century alter ego, PDQ Bach's Concerto for Simply Grand Piano and Orchestra. Colorado Symphony Orchestra shall premiere the work. Other distinguished Orchestras in the consortium include Finland's Jyvaskyla Sinfonia and the Austin Symphony among others.

Tchaikovsky's typical artistic balance and skillful orchestration, while not nationalistic, has a distinctive Russian flavor, and lifts the mood from sentimentality to romanticism.
