Beautiful Moments

Bronspiegel Auditorium, New Bedford High School

Saturday, November 18, 7:30 PM

Yaniv Dinur, conductor
Janice Weber, piano

Clarice Assad: Nhanderú
Dmitri Shostakovich: Piano Concerto No. 2
Antonín Dvořák: Symphony No. 6

Brazilian composer Clarice Assad draws on the rain-making rituals of the Tupi and Guarani tribes of the Amazon basin to create a piece of music that is both prayerful and delightful, including that beautiful moment when you feel light raindrops falling on your uplifted face. Composer Dimitri Shostakovich might not typically be associated with the idea of pure beauty, but the second movement of his Piano Concerto No. 2 is truly mesmerizing in its gentle beauty, and the rest of the piece is infused with a celebratory joy, which is fitting since Shostakovich wrote it as a gift to his piano-playing son on his 19th birthday. Another reason to celebrate this piece is that it will be performed by our very own South Coast Chamber Music Series artistic director, the inestimable Janice Weber. The program concludes with Dvorak’s sixth symphony, which is filled with an embarrassment of beautiful melodic riches, as only he can do. We’ll take every one of them without being embarrassed at all!
