“Music is the answer to the mystery of life. It is the most profound of all the arts; it expresses the deepest thoughts of life and being; a simple language which nonetheless cannot be translated.” – Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) Making Music Together is the motto of the Orfeo Music Festival since it was founded in 2002. It emphasizes the spirit of creative cooperation, continuity of a great classical tradition, and enhancement of musical experience.

A Message from the General Director Welcome to the 2013 Orfeo Music Festival! This year we start sailing into the second decade of the Festival’s history after celebrating its tenth anniversary last summer. The Festival started out with only twelve artists and has grown to over forty great performers in recent seasons. Over the years, we have introduced many changes and developed concert programs to include two orchestra concerts, an opera scenes concert and a choir, not to mention professional accompanists and vocal coaches, as well as variety of new course offerings including orchestra auditions, secondary piano, psychology of performance, language and health classes. But some things have remained constant. Orfeo Music Festival has always been and continues to be a music performance community and an event which the whole community prepares for and anticipates all year! The focus on education was always a part of Festival’s concept and remains very strong. Orfeo’s artists are committed to sharing their art with younger musicians and are passionate about it. We open our eleventh season with variety of very interesting new programs. In addition to spectacular offerings by Orfeo’s Artists-in-Residence, you are going to hear a concert by great violinist Mikhail Gantvarg and pianist Anna Balakerskaia, several new fantastic young singers from Moscow’s and St. Petersburg’s main opera theaters brought by maestro Dmitry Vdovin of the Bolshoi Opera;a debut of young singers from the Mariinsky Opera, including 2011 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World baritone Andrei Bondarenko, brought by esteemed Larissa Gergieva; Orfeo Festival orchestras led by Alvaro Gomez and Zino Bogachek; an opera scenes concert directed by Victor Jannett and Monique Phinney; and an Orfeo Festival Choir with John Sullivan. The concerts bring you great music full of contrasts: Brahms Musikabend and concert of Soviet Music Masterpieces, “The Sounds of Modernity,” “Romantic Evocations” and “Passions of the Soul.” Come and join us, get inspired and exhilarated by the music and performances we are excited to offer once again at the Orfeo Music Festival this summer. Larissa Jackson, General Director

Un Messaggio del Direttore Generale Benvenuti nel 2013 Orfeo Music Festival! Quest’anno iniziamo a vela in secondo decennio della storia del Festival dopo aver celebrato il suo decimo anniversario ultimo estate. Il Festival è iniziato con solo dodici artisti ed è cresciuto fino a oltre quaranta grandi interpreti nelle ultime stagioni. Nel corso degli anni, abbiamo introdotto molti cambiamenti e programmi di concerti sviluppate per includere due concerti per orchestra, un concerto di scene d’opera e un coro, per non parlare di accompagnatori professionali e allenatori vocali, così come varietà di nuove offerte di corsi tra cui audizioni orchestra, pianoforte secondaria, la psicologia di prestazioni, la lingua e classi salute. Ma alcune cose sono rimaste costanti. Orfeo Music Festival è sempre stato e continua ad essere una comunità performance di musica e di un evento che tutta la comunità si prepara e anticipa tutto l’anno! L’attenzione per l’istruzione era sempre una parte del concetto del Festival e rimane molto forte. Artisti di Orfeo si sono impegnati a condividere il loro arte con i musicisti più giovani e sono appassionato a questo proposito. Apriamo la nostra undicesima stagione con varietà di molto interessanti nuovi programmi. Oltre alle offerte spettacolare di Orfeo Artists-in-Residence, si è andare a sentire un concerto di grande violinista Mikhail Gantvarg e pianista Anna Balakerskaia, diversi nuovi fantastici giovani cantanti provenienti da Mosca e dai principali teatri d’opera di San Pietroburgo portati dal Maestro Dmitry Vdovin del Bolshoi Opera, un debutto di giovani cantanti del Mariinsky Opera, tra cui 2.011 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World baritono Andrei Bondarenko, portata da stimati Larissa Gergieva; Orfeo Festival orchestre guidate da Alvaro Gomez e Zino Bogachek; un concerto lirico quinte diretto da Victor Jannett e Monique Phinney, e un Orfeo Festival Choir con John Sullivan. I concerti si mettono grande musica piena di contrasti: Brahms Musikabend e concerto di capolavori musicali sovietici, “I suoni della modernità,” “Evocazioni Romantic” e “passioni dell’anima.” Vieni e unisciti a noi, trarre ispirazione ed euforico per la musica e le performance siamo entusiasti di offrire ancora una volta al Orfeo Music Festival di questa estate.

He was born at St. Anthony hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, where his father, a Soviet naval officer, was on temporary assignment during the American lend-lease program during the WWII. After three years stint in the States, the family returned to Leningrad (now St. Petersburg, Russia). His musical gift was discovered when Vladimir’s father brought a piano from Germany in 1947. When in the second grade, Vladimir entered the Special Music School for Gifted children at the Leningrad Conservatory, and later studied at the same Conservatory where he remained (except for a six months served at army) until he received a Master’s degree. A vibrant, successful musical career followed, including numerous concert trips throughout Soviet Union, including the most prestigious concert halls in Moscow and Leningrad-St. Petersburg as well as concerts in Japan, Finland, England and Bulgaria. Three times he was awarded Honor Diplomas as best accompanist in vocal competitions. All of this was practically squelched by KGB when Vladimir spoke out against conditions in Soviet Union, especially regarding the emigration of so many fine artists for better opportunities elsewhere . The first coup attempt in January 1991 was the catalyst for Vladimir’s desire to return to the land of his birth. From the American side, he had no problem entering the United States, passport in hand. Requesting a return to St. Petersburg, Florida, he reached the Bay area in March of 1991. During his years in Florida he performed extensively within the state as well as in New York (Steinway Hall debur in 1996 as award for price winning at the Pinault Society International Competition ), Cleveland, Minneapolis, and Alexandria ,VA . During his Doctoral studies at the Florida State University he won the First Prize at The Graduate Students’ Competition. Currently, Vladimir runs a successful private Russian Piano School. His students received over fifty awards at different local, state and international competitions. For sixteen years he also conducts Latvian Community Chorus in St. Petersburg, and for eleven years serves as a Music Director of the Russian Heritage Society. “Great traditions of Russian pianists… he literally plumbs the depths of the music – the tonal resources inexhaustible and fire and ice vie unforgettable remembrance. Eloquence is the word. Mozart and Schubert unforgettably beautiful … He discourses, he reveals, he explains. He truly communicates the meaning in Music” (Jacques Abram, Professor Emeritus, USF). “He has requisite qualities in a musician… delicate touch … extremely sensitive true rubato rare among pianists today…wonderful addition to cultural community in Tampa Bay area… immense talent.” (Edward Cumming, Music Director, Hartford Symphony). La vita di Vladimir Khokhlov è interessante quanto il suo modo di suonare è squisita. Nacque a Sant’Antonio ospedale di St. Petersburg, Florida, dove il padre, un ufficiale di marina sovietica, era in assegnazione temporanea durante il programma di prestiti e affitti americana durante la seconda guerra mondiale. Dopo tre anni di periodo di lavoro negli Stati Uniti, la famiglia tornò a Leningrado (oggi San Pietroburgo, Russia). Il suo dono musicale è stato scoperto quando il padre di Vladimir portato un pianoforte dalla Germania nel 1947. Quando nel secondo grado, Vladimir entrò nella Scuola di Musica speciale per bambini dotati al Conservatorio di Leningrado, e in seguito ha studiato presso lo stesso Conservatorio, dove rimase (tranne che per sei mesi serviti a esercito) fino a che non ha ricevuto un Master. Una vibrante, di successo carriera musicale ha seguito, tra cui numerosi viaggi per concerti in tutta Unione Sovietica, tra le sale da concerto più prestigiose di Mosca e Leningrado-St. Pietroburgo e concerti in Giappone, Finlandia, Inghilterra e Bulgaria. Per tre volte è stato premiato Diplomi d’Onore come miglior pianista accompagnatore in concorsi vocali. Tutto questo è stato praticamente soffocata dal KGB quando Vladimir ha parlato contro le 50

Orfeo Music Festival 2013


condizioni in Unione Sovietica, in particolare per quanto riguarda l’emigrazione di tanti ottimi artisti per migliori opportunità altrove. Il primo tentativo di colpo di stato nel gennaio 1991 è stato il catalizzatore per di Vladimir desiderio di tornare alla sua terra natale. Da parte americana, non aveva alcun problema di entrare negli Stati Uniti, il passaporto in mano. Richiesta di un ritorno a St. Petersburg, in Florida, ha raggiunto la zona di Baia, nel marzo del 1991. Durante i suoi anni in Florida ha eseguito ampiamente all’interno dello Stato, così come a New York (Steinway Sala sbavarli nel 1996 come premio per il prezzo di vincita al Pinault Society International Competition), Cleveland, Minneapolis, e Alexandria, VA. Durante i suoi studi di dottorato presso la Florida State University ha vinto il Primo Premio al Concorso i dottorandi. Attualmente, Vladimir gestisce un successo private di pianoforte scuola russa. I suoi studenti hanno ricevuto più di cinquanta premi in diversi concorsi locali, regionali e internazionali. Per sedici anni dirige anche lettone Coro della Comunità di San Pietroburgo, e per undici anni fa da direttore musicale della Heritage Society russo. “Grandi tradizioni dei pianisti russi ... lui letteralmente scandaglia le profondità della musica - le risorse timbriche inesauribili e il fuoco e il ghiaccio si contendono indimenticabile ricordo. Eloquenza è la parola. Mozart e Schubert indimenticabilmente bello ... Lui discorsi, egli rivela, spiega.
