Chamber Orchestra KREMLIN

Misha Rachlevsky, Conductor
Monday, October 12, 1998

Chamber Orchestra KREMLIN
So extraordinary we had to have them back, the Chamber Orchestra Kremlin was a sensation here during their 1995 tour. With worldwide tours and recordings now to their credit, these youthful players combine vitality with discipline for performances that go to the heart of each work. Conductor Misha Rachlevsky first appeared here under CFCE’s aegis in 1984 with the New American Chamber Orchestra and is one of the emigrees who have returned to Russia in a free society. The program include works of Greig, Richard Strauss, Janacek and Brahms.

“…no listener could fail to be won over by the gorgeous, blooming sounds… whose luster, intensity, conviction and polish belied the group’s small size.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

NEXUS

Global Music – Master Percussionists
Thursday, November 5, 1998

NEXUS
Many have followed, but none approach the brilliance of NEXUS as the world’s leading percussion ensemble. Single-handedly (or ten-handedly?) its five members not only created the form, but set the standard for more than a quarter century. Last on our series in 1994, their long-delayed return to Central Florida brought our instant invitation. NEXUS has premiered works from many of the world’s leading composers and appeared with the world’s leading orchestras, including the Toronto Symphony Orchestra to play Takemitsu’s “From Me Flows What You Call Time,” commissioned for them and the Boston Symphony at Carnegie’s Centennial.

“The guys in NEXUS are the high priests of the percussion world. Before world music became such a cliché, they were out there exploring the percussion music of other cultures… out of sincere interest.”
Jacob Druckman, percussionist

Berlin Philharmonic Piano Quartet

Monday, January 25, 1999

Berlin Philharmonic Piano Quartet
Founded in 1985, the BPPQ, which includes three string players from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and the eminent Russian pianist Pavel Gililov, is among the few permanent ensembles of its type. Touring has taken them to South America and Japan as well as throughout Europe and the United States, while festival performances have taken them to Salzburg, the highest honor. The string players, as members of one of the greatest orchestras in the world, can claim the tradition of Karajan and Abbado, while pianist Hililov has been a prize-winner in Moscow and at the Chopin Competition in Warsaw.

“The Mozart Quartet KV 493 was performed brilliantly, with shimmering sounds and transparent security.”
La Stampa, Turin, Italy

Voice of the Turtle

Music of the Sephardic Diaspora
Monday, February 15, 1999

Voice of the Turtle
Two things happened in Spain in 1492: Columbus set sail for the Orient, and the inquisition expelled the Jews to scatter to North Africa, the Ottoman Empire and the Near and Middle East. Voice of the Turtle recreates more than 500 years of extraordinarily exotic music with original instruments and enthusiastic authenticity. The interweaving of Hebrew, Catalan, Arabic – every musical style the Sephardim encountered up to the edges of klezmer – makes these musics (and there are many) richly human and immediate. Founded in 1978 and with eleven recordings to their credit, ‘Voice” has played festivals in Canada, England, Scotland, Holland, Spain, and Israel.

“Voice of the Turtle has designed lively instrumental accompaniments to support the ecstatic melodic arabesques… this powerfully expressive repertory will leave no one unmoved.”
New York Times

Spoleto USA Ensemble

Charles Wadsworth and Friends
Tuesday, March 9, 1999
Performance at Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center
7:45 p.m.

Spoleto USA Ensemble
Surely the oldest established, permanent, floating chamber group in the U.S., the Spoleto chamber programs were first created by Charles Wadsworth at the invitation of Gian Carlo Menotti in 1960 in Italy, nine years before he went on to found the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Heard live in Charleston’s historic Dock Street Theater, their concerts are a daily treat at the seventeen-day festival and are now broadcast nationally over National Public Radio. Long on both charm and talent, pianist Wadsworth will be musical host and co-performer with the exceptional violinist Chee-Yun, cellist Andres Diaz, clarinetist Todd Palmer and pianist Stephen Prutsman.

“Charles Wadsworth, the driving force behind the ensemble, proved to be as witty as a host as he was brilliant as a musician… It will be a long time before the artistic level of this concert is matched.”
