A Baroque composer, albeit the most important of his time (or of all time, as many are of the opinion) on the same program as a Romantic composer, one of the plethora of musical innovators of the 19th century? How could such music possibly be of interest?

The Park Avenue Chamber Symphony (PACS) is riding high these days, its Music Director David Bernard and musicians alike so full of energy and vigour that it comes perhaps as a mild shock to learn that this beloved New York orchestra marks its twentieth year with the 2019/20 season. At a time when some orchestras have settled into a routine, a 'that's the way we've always done it' attitude, PACS seems to be reinventing - if not the wheel, then themselves - almost with every season. Recent years have seen - and continue - a partnership with the pioneering InsideOut Concerts with their immersive orchestra experiences (to feature in two programs this PACS season - see below), the launching of a series of recordings on Recursive Classics that have been applauded by critics in Gramophone, The Arts Desk and elsewhere, and compelling stand-alone events such as their Tribute to Veterans (an event that saw more than 300 musicians on the Carnegie Hall stage, and the New York premiere of Dreams Of The Fallen by Jake Runestad and poet and military veteran Brian Turner). There are more, many more, achievements one could cite, but the coming anniversary season has its own share of fascinations:

BWW Feature: THE FUTURE OF CLASSICAL MUSIC IS 'INSIDEOUT' with Maestro David Bernard Photo BWW Feature: THE FUTURE OF CLASSICAL MUSIC IS 'INSIDEOUT' with Maestro David Bernard
by Peter Danish - Sep 3, 2019

I have seen the future of Classical Concert-Going and it is called INSIDE OUT! Two years ago, Maestro David Bernard began an experiment in classical concert-going. He had a bold new idea to intimately integrate the audience directly into the concert by literally seating them within the orchestra among the musicians -the idea being to create a totally immersive symphonic experience. Two years and more than a dozen performances later, the experiment has been a success on every level. Thousands of spellbound audience members can attest to the visceral power of live music performed by a 60-piece orchestra on all sides of you.
