Mark your calendars for this DSO concert featuring Ms. Piccinini, whom Gramophone Magazine has hailed “the Heifetz of the flute”. A daring artist with diverse musical interests, virtuoso flutist Marina Piccinini is in demand worldwide as a soloist, chamber musician and recording artist. Internationally acclaimed for her interpretive skills, rich, expansive colors, technical command and elegant, compelling stage presence.
Aaron Jay Kernis is a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer who studied composition in San Francisco, Manhattan and at Yale with John Adams, Jacob Druckman, Morton Subotnik, and Charles Wuorinen. His is a truly eclectic musical language, as willing to incorporate the influences of Latin rhythms, jazz and rap as to use harmonic worlds of the Romantic masters, the Renaissance and Hildegard von Bingen. His Concerto for Flute and Orchestra promises to expose his musical intuitive and emotional eloquence.
Also on the program: Bizet’s Suite from the Opera “Carmen”, John Williams’ Trumpet Concerto featuring Hunter Eberly, principal trumpet player of the DSO, and Ravel’s Bolero. This concert will be at Max M. Fisher Music Center, 3711 Woodward Avenue, Detroit. We look forward to seeing you there!
