Beethoven & Brahms - Orpheus Chamber Orchestra
Orpheus & Brad Mehldau Play Beethoven, Brahms & Mehldau
Hear Orpheus Chamber Orchestra for the first time in Worcester just days before they take the same program to Carnegie Hall. This Grammy-winning orchestra has been earning rave reviews for over 40 years while re-defining the notion of what an orchestra is. Forgoing a conductor, Orpheus is a collaborative effort in which every musician's input is heard. The New York Times
calls them "the adventurous conductorless orchestra." Adding a jazzy touch to the program, Brad Mehldau joins Orpheus for the U.S. premiere of his piano concerto. Arguably one of the best jazz pianists performing today, Mehldau will lend his talents to a program that mixes classical symphonies with his own jazz composition. As Artistic Director Ronnie Bauch notes, "Brad Mehldau is one of the great performer/composer/improvers of our time. Orpheus musicians are very excited to collaborate with Brad on his new work, which blends spontaneous musical ideas and formal architecture in a way that dynamically expands the porous borders of classical music." The program also features Brahms' Liebeslieder Waltzes and Beethoven's Symphony No. 3, Eroica

The million-selling Mexican duo took a strange route to stardom, gaining fame in Ireland first where they were street buskers before releasing their debut disc, which shot to No. 1. Since then, they've further developed their exciting and speedy style of play, influenced by traditional Spanish flamenco styles, pop, rock and heavy metal. Famed for their legendary live shows, Rodrigo y Gabriela have performed for President Barack Obama at the White House, been featured on the Puss in Boots soundtrack and appeared on late-night TV and at prestigious festivals around the world.
