Marcus Center-Central Park Revisits The Music of BocelliMarcus Center-Central Park Revisits The Music of Bocelli
by BWW News Desk - Aug 16, 2017

On September 16th , 2011 the Great Lawn of Central Park was filled with 60,000 adoring fans of one the most beloved tenors of all time, Andrea Bocelli. Accompanied by the New York Philharmonic under the direction of the great Alan Gilbert, not even the rains of Hurricane Maria could dampen this spectacular night of music. Joined by some of the biggest stars of both the pop and classical music scenes, the night was bursting with the sounds of Bocelli's  treasured hits.  A "pop culture extravaganza", Bocelli, along with Celine Dion, Tony Bennet, Chriss Botti, Bryn Terfl (and many others) transformed one of the most remarkable and renowned urban parks into the grandest of Opera houses, the most opulent of theatre venues, and the flashiest of concert arenas, in an evening that exemplified the magic of New York City and the great Central Park concert series.

92Y's 17-18 season opens on October 5 with internationally renowned cellist Mischa Maisky joining the “amazing precision” (Huffington Post) of the notably conductorless Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, which returns to 92Y for the first time in 15 years, to celebrate the cellist's 70th birthday season. Together, they open 92Y's illustrious concert season with Schubert's beloved “Arpeggione” Sonata, arranged for cello and string orchestra by Dobrinka Tabakova, as well as Arensky's Variations on a Theme by Tchaikovsky, and Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings.  Acclaimed for the sheer intensity and vigor of his performances, Maisky has the distinct honor of being the only cellist in the world to have studied under both Gregor Piatigorsky and Mlatislav Rostrapovich.  The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is renowned as one of the foremost chamber orchestras in the world, with more than 70 albums in its sprawling discography since its founding in 1972.

by Richard Sasanow - Jun 5, 2017

Just after hearing the wonderfully well sung, semi-staged DAS RHEINGOLD at the NY Philharmonic, under departing Music Director Alan Gilbert, I saw the current Broadway revival of THE LITTLE FOXES. It seemed Richard Wagner's gods and Lillian Hellman's Hubbards had lots in common: The small-minded, self-serving gods of this production, at least, could have been friends and neighbors of the mendacious, corrupt Southerners in Hellman's play (or even of a would-be-royal family in Washington, DC).
