Three Worlds

Bronspiegel Auditorium, New Bedford High School

Saturday, October 14, 7:30 PM

Yaniv Dinur, conductor
Sydney Lee, cello

James Lee III: Sukkot through Orion’s Nebula
Jean Sibelius: Symphony No. 7
Edward Elgar: Cello Concerto

American composer James Lee III’s opening piece invokes the Hebrew holiday of Sukkot and draws inspiration from passages in the Book of Job and Revelations, creating a world both old and new. Sibelius’ Symphony No. 7 is in one movement and is only 20 minutes long, but in that compact space, he defies the inherited world of the symphonic tradition to create his own personal vision of the possibilities of orchestral music. The evolution of his melodies throughout the piece and the harmonic soundscape he conjures is like nothing before or after him. It is one of the most beautiful and moving works ever written for symphony orchestra. Elgar’s Cello Concerto lives (and flourishes) firmly within the Romantic world. Elgar harnesses all that that musical world has to offer in a masterpiece for cello and orchestra, which will be performed by acclaimed cellist Sydney Lee.
