Riverside Symphony Presents GOLDKIND, 6/10
by BWW News Desk - May 2, 2011

New York's 'intrepid' Riverside Symphony will celebrate its 30th-anniversary season at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, on Friday June 10, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. with the world premiere of Goldkind, by Anthony Korf, the orchestra's founding Artistic Director and Composer-in-Residence, and Sabina Sciubba, international pop diva/songwriter, best known for her years as frontwoman for the New York cult-band Brazilian Girls. The new work is based on an original fairytale co-penned by Sciubba and Korf. Singing and narrating, Sciubba, a riveting presence, will join Music Director and Conductor George Rothman and his Riverside Symphony musicians in this trail­blazing work, a 21st-century tribute to Prokofiev's timeless Peter and the Wolf, engaging young audiences and mature listeners alike. The collaboration in part stems from the catholic musical interests of Goldkind's creators: Korf, with his lifelong passion for jazz and pop, and Sciubba, who has closely followed classical music since her early training. Korf characterizes the collaborative experience as '...daunting but inspiring, thanks to Sabina's intuitive depth and brilliance as a performer' and also speaks of his challenge to '...incorporate with integrity' while reaching the broadest possible audience. Sciubba offers that 'writing with Anthony Korf was poetically, musically, and humanly very instructive.' She also reveals: 'Goldkind is very much inspired by my childhood, although distorted, of course, for dramatic value. I added some bizarre elements to it, which wouldn't seem credible in an autobiography.' (more...)
