Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet with Pianist, Andrey Kasparov FEB. 18, 10 A.M. MULTIPLE MASTER CLASSES IN THE DIEHN CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS

F

ounded in 1988, the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet (Philharmonisches Bläserquintett Berlin) was, during the era of Herbert von Karajan, the first permanently established wind quintet in the famous orchestra’s rich tradition of chamber music. The ensemble has had important collaborations with every other major conductor of its time, including Leonard Bernstein, Carlos Kleiber, Sir John Barbirolli, Günter Wand, Carlo Maria Giulini, Bernard Haitink, Riccardo Muti, James Levine and Daniel Barenboim. The musicians have received critical accolades worldwide and many of their recordings are widely held to be “definitive” or “reference” performances. The Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet continues to astonish audiences worldwide with its range of expression, tonal spectrum and conceptual unity. The critics agree that the ensemble has succeeded in virtually redefining the sound of the classic wind quintet. TICKETS: $10 STUDENTS, $15 GENERAL Tickets can be purchased online at oduartstix.com, or by calling (757) 683-5305 during regular box office hours.

“Extraordinary precision ... a dazzling reading. This ensemble makes a rich, wonderfully blended sound, synchronizes perfectly in the most devilishly difficult of passages and generally plays like a great string quartet” — American Record Guide “The ensemble remains as virtuosic and skilled a unit as any on the chamber music circuit.” — Los Angeles Times “It is rare to hear man perfectly integrated with music—when the two are so inextricably linked, so aware yet selfless, that distinctions between them are rendered meaningless. Such communion was achieved by the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet. It was a concert not to be forgotten.” — Washington Post

MARCH 24, 8 P.M.

Lambert Orkis and David Hardy In conjunction with the 27th Annual Harold Protsman Classical Period Piano Competition

As a soloist he has made appearances with conductors including Mstislav Rostropovich, Leonard Slatkin, Kenneth Slowik, John Mauceri, Robert Kapilow and Leon Fleisher. Orkis has been principal keyboardist of Washington’s National Symphony Orchestra since 1982, and has performed chamber music with the orchestra’s principal cellist David Hardy since 1983. David Hardy, one of the leading orchestral cellists in the United States, began studying at the age of 8 and graduated from the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore in 1980. He made his debut with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra at the age of 16 and eventually became a member of the orchestra. In 1979 he won a certificate at the Geneva International Cello Competition. His teachers at Peabody were Stephen Kates, Bert Senofsky and Laurence Lesser. He was associate principal cello of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C., appointed by the star international cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.

The Outsider

By Wolfgang Borchert Directed by Lee Smith GOODE THEATRE

A

man returns home from war, but the world no longer exists. In Borchert’s intensely searing expressionistic masterpiece The Outsider, the soldier Beckman grasps for life in a world which only worships death. As Borchert shouts: “This is what we are. This is what we did, all of us…we don’t need poets with good grammar. We lack patience for good grammar. We need those with the hot feeling that’s been sobbed hoarse.” Raw, edgy and often disturbing, this is a performance to be experienced.

Really, Really

By Paul Downs Colaizzo Directed by Patrick Mullins GOODE THEATRE “

Y

ou’re the nicest guy I know. And I mean that in a completely negative way,” Cooper criticizes, in this startling play that The New York Times called, “the Lord of the Flies with smartphones.” After a huge house party given on campus by a group of rugby players, a young woman accuses one of the players of rape. What transpires questions the nature of friendship and the ethics of ambition. Hailed by the New York Observer as “unexpected and thrilling,” and “a brilliant new play” by the Washingtonian, “Really, Really” comes to Old Dominion University directly from MCC Theatre in New York. Be among the first to see this new play in Hampton Roads. April 9, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 19 at 7:30 p.m.; April 13 at 2 p.m. TICKETS $15 STUDENTS, $20 GENERAL.
