Welcome New Music Director

ANDREAS


I am so honored

and delighted to be joining the RPO family as Music Director for its 99th season in 2021–22!

It has been a great joy to visit this wonderful orchestra as a guest conductor, from the first time in November 1994 to our most recent concerts in 2018, and I am very much looking forward to exploring and deepening this rewarding relationship. Together, we will reach new musical heights and extend the impact of our performances throughout the Rochester community and Finger Lakes region. When I take the podium as Music Director this fall, we will—hopefully—be in the midst of a rebirth after an unprecedented and challenging pandemic season. May we once again be able to gather together to re-discover and be inspired by the irreplaceable classics of Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Rachmaninov and our special performances of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker with the Rochester City Ballet. As we approach the orchestra’s next century, we will embark on a journey committed to presenting new and more diverse voices, better reflecting the rich cultural tapestry of our community. This season, I’m thrilled to be presenting world premieres by two of today’s most exciting composers, Jessie Montgomery and Roberto Sierra, as well as RPO premieres of works by Gabriela Lena Frank, Jennifer Higdon, Brian Nabors, and Sarah Kirkland Snider, among others.

The RPO has, for nearly a century, been an active member and a cultural leader of the Rochester community. Going forward, we will look for ways to expand and strengthen our relationships with community organizations, and establish a more regular presence in Rochester’s schools and universities, providing more opportunities for young people of all backgrounds to make music a significant part of their lives. One project to which I look forward in particular is our collaboration with the Eastman School of Music, featuring Eastman alumni and faculty in this season’s production of Hansel and Gretel, the beloved fairy tale opera by Engelbert Humperdinck. I also look forward to the debut of guest conductors Joseph Young for a program of music by Nabors, Barber, and Dvořák, and Lina González-Granados, for music by Ginastera, Gershwin, and Frank. And I am eagerly anticipating return visits by Rochester favorites David Danzmayr, Christoph König, and Olga Kern. Of course, Jeff Tyzik has a tremendous season of Pops concerts planned, with more installments of Harry Potter, a show devoted to the Kings of Soul and much more—but I will let him fill you in on all the details! Our medical advisors are optimistic that live performances will resume in 2021. We recognize, however, the possibility that significant social distancing requirements may impact the type of work that we can present, and the number of audience members that can be accommodated. We have prepared alternative programs for live concerts with smaller groups of musicians, should we not be able to present any part of the season as planned. We will provide updated information on this, as well as on our plans to video stream concerts, as we near the start of the season. We hope to bring you concerts that are transcendent, uplifting, inspiring, and perhaps a bit surprising as well. It is my fervent wish that during my tenure in Rochester the RPO will be available and relevant to the entire community; provide artistic highlights and moving events throughout the season; and give daily testimony to the incredible life force that is—music.

Andreas Delfs, conductor Benjamin Beilman, violin WAGNER Dawn and Siegfried’s Rhine Journey JENNIFER HIGDON Violin Concerto BRAHMS Symphony No. 1

PAREMSKI + RACHMANINOV

Music Director Andreas Delfs opens the program with Richard Wagner’s Dawn & Siegfried’s Rhine Journey. Jennifer Higdon’s award-winning Violin Concerto, praised as “an attractive, colourful work, scored most imaginatively and with great finesse” (Gramophone), features soloist Benjamin Beilman. Despite taking the composer over a decade to complete, Johann Brahms’s First Symphony was worth the wait—a melodic triumph worthy of his musical predecessors.

KÖNIG CONDUCTS SAINT-SAËNS

Christoph König returns to conduct Camille SaintSaëns’s “Bacchanale” from Samson and Delilah. Édouard Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole is considered a violin concerto by musicians and, indeed, inspired Tchaikovsky to write his own Violin Concerto. Alexandra Soumm makes her RPO debut with this charming and mischievous piece. Saint-Saëns’s energetic and powerful Third Symphony, composed in 1886 and popularly known as “the Organ Symphony,” shows Saint-Saëns at the peak of his career. SERIES: A C E

Sergei Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, with Natasha Paremski returning as soloist, evokes the threemovement form of Romanticist concertos but written as a single movement. Boris Blacher’s Orchestral Variations on a Theme by Paganini opens with Paganini’s theme, finishing with a grand ending in the final bars. Aram Khachaturian’s Suite from Spartacus remains one of his bestknown works. SERIES: A B D

FEBRUARY 10 & 12

One of Eastman School of Music’s first directors, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Howard Hanson was renowned for his gorgeously orchestrated and richly textured works. Written in 1930, Hanson’s Second Symphony was immediately hailed as a triumph and “the epitome of the twentieth-century symphony.” The second half of the program features Richard Strauss’s Don Quixote. Composed in 1897, this tone poem, based on Miguel de Cervantes’s novel of the same name, implements varied orchestra instruments to represent the novel’s themes of knightly glory and a colorful array of amusing characters.

Lina González-Granados, conductor Olga Kern, piano

SERIES: A B E

Praised for her “attention to orchestral colors” (OperaWire), Lina González-Granados makes her RPO conducting debut. Alberto Ginastera’s Four Dances from Estancia, a ballet, features music inspired by his native Argentinian rural landscape. George Gershwin, similarly, was inspired by the sounds and rhythms of Havana when he composed his Cuban Overture. Olga Kern brings her extraordinary talent and star power to Gershwin’s Concerto in F. Gabriela Lena Frank’s Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout blends classical and Andean folk music traditions to perform in a sonorous space that co-exists together.

On The Beautiful Blue Danube, op.314 Felix Mendelssohn’s charming overture to The Fair Melusine is rarely performed, a musical treat you won’t want to miss. Concertmaster Juliana Athayde performs as soloist in the world premiere of Violin Concerto, written by acclaimed composer Roberto Sierra. Despite being his last and unfinished composition, Franz Schubert’s Eighth Symphony is regarded as one of the Romantic period’s first musical works. Johann Strauss’s The Blue Danube is a melodic tune that conjures up images of extravagant costumes swaying in even grander ballrooms.

One of the greatest symphonies of all time closes out your season.
