As birthday celebrations go, Saturday night's concert at the Madison Theater of Molloy College has to be close to the top of the list. Rock Music legend Keith Emerson celebrated his 70th birthday with pianist extraordinaire Jeffrey Biegel and the South Shore Symphony in an eclectic program entitled: The Classical Legacy of a Rock Star. It was very clear from the get go that the crowd was composed largely of ELP fans looking for a trip down memory lane, but that was not at all what they got. Rather, Maestros Emerson, Biegel and Wiley (conductor of the South Shore Symphony) challenged the audience right from the beginning with several unfamiliar selections including the world premiere of three string quartets by Emerson and a new orchestral tone poem entitled 'Glorietta Pass,' which the composer conducted himself. It was a bold and daring decision to play lesser-known works rather than more obvious crowd-pleasers such as 'The Nutrocker' (based on the Nutcracker) or 'Hoedown' (from Copland's Rodeo). Nonetheless, the works were engagingly performed and warmly received.

On July 7th 1977, Emerson, Lake and Palmer performed the opening concert of a three-night stand at Madison Square Garden. The tour, in support of their new album 'Works Volume One' was famous and infamous for the massive 76-piece symphony orchestra and choir that it featured. It was also the first concert of any kind that this writer attended. No concert in nearly forty years of concert-going has left the same kind of impression.

This Sunday, September 14th, the Performers of Westchester kicked off its 23rd season with a performance by the renown Brentano String Quarter in a program of Mozart, Bartok and Schubert. The Performers of Westchester was established in 1982 by pianist Joel Rosen with the purpose of arranging performances of chamber music in private homes rather than in concert halls. The concept was designed to allow audiences to listen and experience chamber music in the ambience originally intended by the composer. This season features an eclectic array of poplular chamber music repertoire as well as modern, rarely presented, and unusual pieces.

Pianist Tanya Bannister has managed to do something very rare with her new CD. She has taken the standard recital disc and remade it into something fresh and different. 'The Intimate Concertos' is a collection of three lesser known works (but certainly not lesser works) by Mozart, Chopin and Shubert, and the arrangements and the recording of the works certainly live up to the title of the disc.

New York City has lots of big attractions that people around the world are well aware of. But New York City also has smaller gems that don't get the same attention but still shine just as brightly. The Park Avenue Chamber Symphony is one such gem. Last Sunday afternoon, this superb ensemble led ably by Maestro David Bernard delivered an impressive performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 2, which many, more well-known and well-funded, orchestras would be jealous of. Maestro Bernard, who worked without benefit of a score, brought a brilliant and bright quality to the first Allegro movement. The Larghetto that followed was mannered and precisely shaped. The Scherzo, usually performed as a light and merry dance, felt a bit wayward, as the playing got a bit loose. But a strong, majestic and fiery Finale brought the first half to a satisfying conclusion. The Second Symphony was composed during the summer and fall of 1802 and it signaled the end of Beethoven's 'early period.' For the composer, this was a time of great despair because he was finally realizing that his deafness could not be cured and would indeed be a permanent affliction. That despair is deeply engrained in the work, and the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony dug deep and tapped into that despair and communicated it amiably to the audience.
