Symphony Hires Planned Giving Manager
The University of Nebraska at Omaha granted Omaha Symphony music director Victor Yampolsky an honorary doctor of letters degree at commencement, May 10. For seven seasons Yampolsky has served as music director of the Omaha Symphony, raising the artistic level of the orchestra through his work on the symphony's MasterWorks and Chamber series. "I am able to accept this honor in part because of the knowledge that I share with the musicians and the public in the Midlands," said Yampolsky. "But the honor reflects on those in this city and in my own life from whom I have learned so much." "I'm lucky to be here in this very special community, which combines deep understanding of classical music with modesty and unselfishness."

44. Grand Teton Music Festival - Conductors And Soloists
william wolfram pianist william wolfram was winner of the Silver Medal in boththe william Kapell and the Naumberg International Piano Competitions.
With the departure of Music Director Eiji Oue, GTMF will enjoy a roster of acclaimed guest conductors, some of whom are being considered for the next Music Director! Appearing on the Festival's podium this summer will be Mark Elder David Lockington Peter Oundjian Larry Rachleff Stefan Sanderling , and Mark Wigglesworth
A Search Committee appointed by GTMF President Jayne Hilde and chaired by Allan Tessler began working through the process last winter once it was confirmed that Eiji Oue would leave the Festival to accept an invitation to mount a new production of Tristan and isolde at the Bayreuth Music Festival in Germany, a world-renowned festival devoted to the operas of the 19th-century German composer, Richard Wagner. Although Tessler states that there is no timetable for appointing a new Music Director, with the excellent prospects for 2004 and possibly for 2005, he expects that the position will be resolved with diligence and an exceptional candidate.
According to Executive Director Don Reinhold, "It's not unusual for an orchestra to go one, or even two years without a Music Director. In the short run, these periods in an orchestra's life offer both the orchestra and public an interesting perspective of different musical viewpoints, and an opportunity to hear some great repertoire that might not have been the focus during Maestro Oue's tenure."

April 16th Concordia Chamber Concert Features Solo by Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster, David Kim, in New Hope PA.
New Hope, PA. February 27, 2000. Concordia Chamber Player's second concert this season will again present David Kim, Concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra, as a soloist in the April concert. The virtuosity of David Kim will be displayed in the Bach Sonata No.2 in A minor for unaccompanied violin. Then the Piano Trio of Ravel features William Wolfram with David Kim and Michelle Djokic, cello. After intermission, Choong-Jin Chang, viola, joins the trio for the Piano Quartet in G minor, Opus 25, of Johannes Brahms. The Concert is on Sunday April 16th, 3pm, at the New Hope-Solebury High School Stephen Buck Theater. The Philadelphia Inquirer's excellent review of Concordia's February concert noted the concert as a “Return to Yesteryear's Salons” and “Kim played…with authority and eloquence”
The Concordia Chamber Players was founded by Michelle Djokic, a world class cellist who debuted at age 13 with the Philadelphia Orchestra, whose roots are in New Hope. Having played with the best, all over the world, Michelle can bring to New Hope a caliber of music and musicians otherwise unavailable to our area. The Concordia musicians' schedules take them to the world's greatest concert venues. They come to New Hope because of their friendship with Michelle and their love to play “in chamber” with treasured colleagues.

Famous soloists like pianist Ruth Laredo and Sara Davis Buechner would concert featuringflutist Barry Crawford and pianists Adam Neiman and william wolfram.
" Music-making at its very best." Harris Goldsmith New York Post "Concerts by the Jupiter Symphony are among the most consistently satisfying in town. Mr. Nygaard's music-making is wonderfully natural; his program is refreshing." Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times. "If you haven't heard Jupiter, your idea of what a classical concert can communicate is rather limited." Leighton Kerner, The Village Voice. "Nygaard-style Mozart means some of the finest Mozart available these days." Leighton Kerner The Village Voice "The performance of Respichi's Triptych was a dazzler. Carnegie Hall was washed in some really gorgeous tone." Leighton Kerner The Village Voice "Jens Nygaard made of Beethoven's Eighth Symphony a sparkling, beautifully proportioned jewel. It must be a pleasure for an orchestra musician to play under so secure a technician." Harold C. Schonberg

Concert Review
In depths of winter, a pleasant, summery 'Interlude' By Emily Russin

Special to The Seattle Times E-mail this article Print this article Search archive After last week's snowstorm, it's difficult to imagine dining al fresco with chamber music wafting through the breeze, but for the sixth year running, the Seattle Chamber Music Society wants to remind you of summer in the middle of winter. This past weekend the society's "Winter Interlude" reunited stellar musicians, many of whom are familiar from the group's summer appearances, from across the country and Canada. At Sunday's third and final concert, the audience's murmurs of satisfaction were audible after nearly every movement. Schumann's "Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano" in G minor featured violinist Ida Levin, cellist Ronald Thomas, and pianist Jeremy Denk in a richly textured piece that moved between agitation and reflection. Despite the lovely melodies and exciting tempos, Levin and Thompson's tones, particularly in their sustained vibrato sounds, did not match throughout. Levin dug in for an earthier, more organic sound, while Thomas displayed a brighter clarity. The musical equivalent of a bonbon, Grieg's "Two Elegiac Melodies" for four-handed piano delivered a short, yet stately opportunity for pianists Denk and William Wolfram. The two players combined forces so seamlessly that if you closed your eyes it sounded like one person playing an unusually dense piano part.

    Indholdet på denne side fornyes, når der kommer nye CD'er til samlingen. Her kan du finde omtaler af plader, som jeg synes særligt godt om. Man vil sjældent finde anmeldelser af musik fra wienerklassisk, barok eller tidligere, med mindre det drejer sig om helt ekstraordinære indspilninger. Hovedområdet er musik fra 20. årh. samt dansk romantik. For god ordens skyld skal det tilføjes, at jeg på alle punkter er uafhængig af de omtalte pladeselskaber.

    Alan Hovhaness, som døde i 2000, var en af de mest fascinerende amerikanske komponister i 2o. årh. I en række symfonier, 67 ialt, viser han sig som en visionær tonekunstner med et dybt originalt tonesprog, som viser påvirkning fra mange sider, både vestlige og orientalske. Hans titler er fantasi fulde som f.eks. "Mysterious Mountain", "Celestial Gate", Moun St. Helens" etc. og dækker ofte over en stor naturoplevelse som inspiration. Hans symfoni nr. 22 er skrevet til Birmingham Symfoniorkester i Alabama og bærer titlen "City of Light". Det er et særdeles velklingende værk, med de for komponisten så karakteristiske brede melodilinier og den ofte modale harmonik.

    Pianist Darrell Grant comes home
    by Joe Kuzma
    Colorado native Darrell Grant brings his emotive piano stylings to town this Friday. "The pianos in jazz clubs usually suck," jokes Darrell Grant, the prodigal son of jazz. "Everybody knows churches have the best pianos." While Grant's seamless and innovative fusion of pop, classical and jazz may not appeal to purists, its accessible melodicism and emotional intensity have helped to establish the versatile pianist as of one the genre's most gifted musical storytellers. On Jan. 23, Grant, a Colorado native, will return home to present Spirit: An Evening of Music from the Heart , at the All Souls Unitarian-Univeralist Church as part of their Journey to Community Performance Series. Even prior to leaving Colorado as a teenager to study at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, Grant had realized the piano's vast potential as a storytelling tool. "When I was 8, and I heard Harry Belafonte singing 'Erev Shel Shoshanim' in Hebrew, it was one the most beautiful things ever, and it convinced me that music had an unmatched ability to bring people together."
