Vail, CO— Bravo! Vail has announced its 26th Season, taking place from June 28th to August 3rd, 2013 in Vail. under the artistic leadership of pianist and artistic director Anne-Marie McDermott. The 26th season also marks the first season of new executive director James W. Palermo, who assumed the role in September 2012.

The only Festival in North America to host three of the world’s finest orchestras in a single season, Bravo! Vail 2013 features summer residencies by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra with its music director Jaap van Zweden, Musical America’s Conductor of the Year in 2012; The Philadelphia Orchestra with its new music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who made his Colorado debut last summer at Bravo! Vail; and the New York Philharmonic with music director Alan Gilbert, returning for its 11th consecutive summer. Dazzling artists include pianists Garrick Ohlsson and Jean-Yves Thibaudet, baritone Matthias Goerne, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, Cuban jazz legend Paquito D’Rivera, and violinists Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and Gil Shaham.  

Chamber and classical music favorites fill the season. Program highlights include Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, Dvoák’s New World Symphony and Verdi’s Requiem. “Cirque de la Symphonie” is back by popular demand, as is the incomparable conductor Bramwell Tovey. Bravo! Vail is excited to announce the New York Philharmonic’s first ever Broadway Night at the Festival, as well as artistic director Anne-Marie McDermott performing solo “Bach by Candlelight” at the Donovan Pavilion.

Chamber music concerts will be held in the intimate Vail Mountain School, the Donovan Pavilion and Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek; orchestral concerts take place in Vail’s spectacular outdoor Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, with its breathtaking view of the Rocky Mountains.

Anne-Marie McDermott has been called “one of the great pianists of her generation” (Philadelphia Inquirer). McDermott, the third artistic director in the Festival’s history, has quickly garnered a reputation for assembling concert seasons full of what audiences have come to expect—excellence, excitement and fun.  
Says McDermott: “The 26th season of Bravo! Vail was a thrill to put together. One of the highlights in planning a Bravo! Vail season is the joy of sitting down with the incredible music directors of our three orchestras and talking about music, musicians, ideas and dreams.”

James W. Palermo began his tenure as executive director of Bravo! Vail on September 4th, 2012. Mr. Palermo’s career in classical music spans 25 years. He was the artistic and general director of the Grant Park Music Festival in downtown Chicago’s Millennium Park for 14 years and most recently served as president and CEO of the Colorado Symphony.

“What a thrill it has been to work with Anne-Marie, the staff, board, volunteers, orchestras and community members to bring this 26th season to life. These next 25 years hold so much promise for Bravo! Vail, and I look forward to helping usher in its next great era,” says Palermo.

Season Long Immersion into the Music of Antonin Dvoák                         
Each season Artistic Director Anne-Marie McDermott creates an immersion into the world of a single composer. The 2013 Bravo! Vail season features the music of Czech composer Antonin Dvoák who, within a brief life span of 63 years, prodigiously crafted symphonies, songs, concertos, choral scores, and more than forty pieces of chamber music. Noted for his natural affinity for melody, and the characteristic folk rhythms and ebullient, life-affirming character of his scores, Dvoák occupies an important place in the pantheon of great symphonic composers. From the Wind Serenade, the earliest of the works to be performed on the Bravo! Vail season, to his Symphony From the New World, listeners can experience the wide variety of genres and sounds that reveal the authentic and highly personal sonic world of Antonin Dvoák.

Dallas Symphony Orchestra                                           
The Dallas Symphony Orchestra launches Bravo! Vail’s 26th season with six concerts at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. On Friday, June 28th, "Hits from the Golden Age of Jazz" offers two jazz giants, the versatile trombonist Wycliffe Gordon and captivating trumpet virtuoso Byron Stripling. The "vivid and glowing" Dallas Symphony Orchestra will be led by beloved pops conductor Jeff Tyzik. Tyzik assembled the artists and repertoire in cooperation with Vail's very own "deacon of jazz," Howard Stone, head of the Vail Jazz Foundation, with whom Bravo! Vail is collaborating on this concert.  
The DSO and guest conductor Bob Bernhardt pay tribute to America’s great movie composers on Saturday, June 29th in “Music at the Movies: A Tribute to John Williams & Arthur Fiedler,” centering on Williams’s most famous and beloved scores.

In a career spanning more than six decades, John Williams has composed some of the most recognizable film scores in cinematic history, including the Star Wars saga, Jaws, Superman, the Indiana Jones films, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Home Alone, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan, Lincoln and the first three Harry Potter films. Williams served as the Boston Pops Orchestra's principal conductor from 1980 to 1993 and is now their conductor laureate. Bravo! Vail and the DSO welcome its music director, Jaap van Zweden on Sunday, June 30th, for a performance of Dvoák's popular Symphony No. 9, From the New World. This concert marks the beginning of the season-long focus on the music of Antonin Dvoák and his Slavic contemporaries. Garrick Ohlsson, famous for winning The International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in 1970, returns to Bravo! Vail to join Maestro van Zweden and the DSO in a performance of that beloved composer’s Piano Concerto No. 2.

On Monday, July 1st, Italian pianist and 2000 Leeds Competition winner Alessio Bax joins Anne-Marie McDermott for Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos, a composition the 23-year-old composer wrote for his sister and himself. Concluding the program is arguably one of classical music’s most cherished works, Beethoven's 5th Symphony.   Premiered at Vienna’s Theater an der Wien in 1808, it was soon recognized by critics as "one of the most important works of the time.”

Wednesday, July 3rd brings exquisite songs by Schubert and Strauss to open the next program of the DSO with German baritone Matthias Goerne, one of the most internationally sought-after vocalists and a frequent guest at renowned festivals and concert halls.  Closing the program is Italian composer Ottorino Respighi’s colorful symphonic poem, Pines of Rome.  Each of the four movements depicts pine trees in different locations in Rome at different times of the day.

The Philadelphia Orchestra                                          
The Philadelphia Orchestra’s 2013 residency commences with a Latin flare on Friday, July 5th with the dynamic Costa Rican conductor Giancarlo Guerrero and multiple Grammy Award-winner, Cuban saxophonist and clarinetist Paquito D'Rivera.  D’Rivera is internationally celebrated for his achievements in jazz, Latin music, classical music and as a composer.

On Saturday, July 6th, “Cirque de la Symphonie” is back by popular demand for an encore performance of spellbinding acrobatic and aerial feats, all choreographed to rich classical scores and conducted here by The Philadelphia Orchestra's Romanian-born associate conductor, Christian Mcelaru.  
Violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, another Vail favorite, makes an appearance on Sunday, July 7th, in performances of two virtuosic French violin works - Ravel's Tzigane and Saint-Saëns’s Havanaise. The evening begins with Berlioz’s The Roman Carnival Overture.  Following that is Copland's Appalachian Spring, with its open harmonies that epitomize the sound of American music, evoking the country’s vast landscape and pioneer spirit. Closing the concert is music by another noted composer, Roberto Sierra.  His Sinfonia No. 4 has brought the Puerto Rican composer great artistic and popular acclaim since its October 2009 premiere in Nashville.

Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin will again take the stage after a stunning Bravo! Vail debut last summer in Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6, Pathétique. Nézet-Séguin’s highly anticipated 2013 residency includes three monumental symphonic scores: Rachmaninoff's romantic Symphony No. 2, a perfect vehicle for The Philadelphia Orchestra’s legendary string section, on Wednesday, July 10th; on Friday, July 12th, Mahler's Symphony No. 4, with its final movement that represents a child's vision of Heaven, sung by soprano Susanna Phillips; and finally on Saturday, July 13th, the Bravo! Vail premiere of Verdi's monumental Requiem Mass for orchestra, chorus and soloists.  

The Verdi’s illustrious vocal cast of soprano Angela Meade, mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill, tenor John Mac Master, and bass-baritone John Relyea joins The Philadelphia Orchestra and Colorado Symphony Orchestra Chorus, prepared by the esteemed choral director Duain Wolfe, also director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Chorus.  Reviewing Nézet-Séguin’s performance of the same work last fall at Carnegie Hall, critic James Oestreich wrote in The New York Times that "he embraced Verdi’s theatricality fully, from the recurring Dies Irae thunder, powerfully hurled, to the bass’s murmur, ‘mors stupebit’ (‘death shall stand amazed’)."

The instrumental soloists joining Maestro Nézet-Séguin this summer are equally exciting. The electrifying young cellist Alisa Weilerstein, winner of a 2011 MacArthur "Genius" Award, takes the stage on July 10th in the profound and highly personal Shostakovich Concerto No. 1. Premiered by Mstislav Rostropovich, for whom the concerto was written, his 1959 Philadelphia Orchestra performances marked the work’s US premiere and were recorded at that time. On July 11th, Bravo! Vail welcomes Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki in his local, and Philadelphia Orchestra, debut.  At 17, Lisiecki is already recognized internationally and is enjoying an exclusive Deutsche Grammophone recording contract.

“There is nothing more thrilling for me,” says McDermott, “than to showcase the most exciting young talent on the scene today. When I discovered that Maestro Nézet-Séguin shared my enthusiasm for the poetic playing of Jan Lisiecki, it was an easy decision to invite him. Our audience is in for a real treat."

New York Philharmonic                                                
A highlight of every Bravo! Vail season is the annual residency of the New York Philharmonic, now in its 11th year.  

"One of the things that makes planning programs with the New York Philharmonic really fun is looking for ways to feature their wonderful principal players in concertos and featured roles,” comments McDermott. “I am delighted that principal cello Carter Brey, concertmaster Glenn Dicterow and principal trombone Joseph Alessi will take the spotlight."  

At the Friday, July 19th opening concert, Carter Brey will perform Dvoák's beloved Cello Concerto as one of the final works on Bravo! Vail’s summer long Dvoák immersion series. The Cello Concerto is a substantial work written at the end of the composer’s residency in America and, according to many writers, it is infused with impressions of the new world as well as longing for his Bohemian homeland. Music Director Alan Gilbert ends this program with Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5.  A triumph with audiences ever since its premiere, the 5th spans a wide emotional range, at times explosive, even tragic, while also tender and lyrical.

On Saturday, July 20th, the venerable Spaniard Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos takes the podium to lead Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique. Like many other pivotal works in music history, it is easy to forget how revolutionary "Symphonie fantastique: Episode in the life of an Artist…in five parts" was in 1830 when it shocked the faculty and audiences of the Paris Conservatory.  A scandal ensued after the work’s premiere, leading to the 26-year-old Berlioz’s name being removed from the Conservatory's list of students.  Each of the work’s five movements tells the romantic and fittingly dramatic story of an artist's obsessive quest for love.

The soloist chosen for this concert is one of the most highly regarded pianists in the world, Jean-Yves Thibaudet.  Well known to Bravo! Vail audiences and boasting an impressive discography including the soundtracks for movies such as Atonement and Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Thibaudet will play Liszt's Totentanz, based on the Gregorian plainchant melody Dies Irae, or "Day of Wrath."

Maestro Gilbert returns on Sunday, July 21st, for a program that features Philharmonic concertmaster Glenn Dicterow performing the solo violin lines written by Rimsky-Korsakov for his musical retelling of 1001 Arabian Nights, Scheherazade. This program also features Ravel's orchestration of an early Spanish-inspired piano work, Alborada del gracioso, as well as the complete score to Stravinsky's 1928 ballet, The Fairy’s Kiss.  Stravinsky drew from a wide variety of Tchaikovsky miniatures—chiefly piano pieces and songs—and recombined them into a shimmering, brand-new orchestral fabric.

Bravo! Vail is happy to announce its first ever Broadway Night with the New York Philharmonic, scheduled for Wednesday, July 24th. Veteran conductor Ted Sperling leads a cast of superb singers direct from Broadway in some of the most romantic songs ever written for The Great White Way.  Thrill to selections from Promises, Promises, West Side Story, Annie Get Your Gun, Carousel, Guys and Dolls, Brigadoon, Camelot, Company, Follies, Ragtime and A Light in the Piazza.

The two concerts that conclude the New York Philharmonic residency will be led by the inimitable Bramwell Tovey, whose Summertime Classics have been a Bravo! Vail highlight for years. Tovey opens the Thursday, July 25th concert with Four Dance Episodes from Copland’s ballet Rodeo. Agnes de Mille, who chose the relatively obscure Brooklyn-born composer to write the musical score to Rodeo after being impressed by his previous ballet, Billy the Kid, choreographed the original ballet. While de Mille occupied herself with instructing the highly international cast in the mannerisms of American cowboys, the premiere at the Metropolitan Opera House in October 1942 was wildly successful, receiving 22 curtain calls.  Next is Bramwell Tovey’s own jazzy composition, The Lincoln Tunnel Cabaret, featuring New York Philharmonic principal trombone, Joseph Alessi.  Closing the concert is Antonin Dvoák’s Symphony No. 8, a cheery work written before the composer traveled to America.  This symphony draws its inspiration from the Bohemian folk music that Dvo?ák so loved.

The New York Philharmonic’s finale is always one of the most popular concerts of every Bravo! Vail season.  This year promises to be no less rousing.  On Friday, July 26th, English composer Gustav Holst's fascination with astrology comes to life with large orchestral forces and women’s chorus. The Planets, a "series of mood pictures,” is a masterfully composed suite that brings forth the full array of orchestral color to its seven movements, each named after a planet of the Solar System and its corresponding astrological character. The Sibelius Violin Concerto is the centerpiece of this finale, performed here by Gil Shaham, winner of Musical America’s 2012 Instrumentalist of the Year Award.  The Sibelius is now considered to be one of the great romantic concertos in the violin repertoire, although its 1903 premiere was disastrous. It remained unknown until the 1930s when Jascha Heifetz rediscovered it and showed the world what it had been missing.  The concert opens with Short Ride in a Fast Machine by popular American composer John Adams.  A joyfully exuberant piece, it is brilliantly scored for a large orchestra.

The Linda and Mitch Hart Soirée Series                                     
The Linda and Mitch Hart Soirée Series features four private performances in four unique and spectacular homes throughout the Vail Valley. Each evening begins with a cocktail reception, followed by an intimate concert and gourmet dinner served by one of the area's premier chefs. The Soirée Series is truly one of the great highlights of the summer season in Vail. Tickets are $200 per person, per soirée and will go on sale to the general public on June 1st.This year’s series serves up the legendary Cuban jazz saxophonist and clarinetist Paquito D’Rivera (Tuesday, July 2nd in Beaver Creek); pianist Anne-Marie McDermott, violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and members of The Philadelphia Orchestra (Tuesday, July 9th in Beaver Creek); Ted Sperling on piano with two young Broadway singers (Tuesday, July 23rd in Mountain Star) and the Jasper String Quartet (Sunday, July 28th in Cordillera Valley).

Chamber Music                                                 
On Monday, July 15th, the Calder Quartet and pianist Anne-Marie McDermott will give the first live performance of a recording project they completed this spring—that of three Mozart Piano Concertos in the composer's sanctioned renditions for string quartet. The concertos, known as K. 414, 415 and 449, are all from the early 1780s.  A pragmatist, Mozart was fully in favor of the concertos being played with string quartet because he knew they would receive far more performances that way. Bravo! Vail is happy to announce that the new McDermott/Calder Mozart Concertos recording will be released for the first time to the public the night of the concert.

Throughout July, Slavic chamber music delights will fill the schedule. Dvoák’s Serenade for Winds and the Piano Quintet No. 2 are performed on Thursday, July 11th.  Soprano Susanna Phillips, Cantus and the Calder Quartet join violist Paul Neubauer and pianist Anne-Marie McDermott on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 16th and 17th, for two varied programs full of works by Dvoák, Janáek and Bartók.                        

At the final concert of the Festival on Saturday, August 3rd, Anne-Marie McDermott has invited three pianist friends to join her on stage for a Four Piano Bash. Featured is Carl Czerny’s Equator Concertante for Four Pianos, a work he wrote for three of his female students. On the same program Joyce Yang, Stephen Prutsman, Pedja Muzijevic, and McDermott will also perform Bach's Concerto for Four Keyboards.

Silver Oak Series at the Donovan Pavilion                                
Now in its second season, the Silver Oak Series is designed to create a new atmosphere for listening—relaxed, elegant, intimate and enveloped by the beauty of the outdoors.  Seating will be cabaret style, with the musicians in the center of the room.  Bringing the performers in close proximity to the audience and encouraging both to mingle over great food and Silver Oak and Twomey wines creates a sense of openness, receptivity and good spirit. This is the essence of great performance.

Musically, the Silver Oak Series explores the resonances and interplay between the "new" in music and the "old," that revered body of work that stretches back at least five centuries.  This inventive series creates an ongoing dialogue with audiences to connect great music from all eras with present day experience.  
The Silver Oak Series opening night on Tuesday, July 30th, juxtaposes American composer Aaron Jay Kernis's Second String Quartet with Beethoven's Op. 59, No. 3, exploring the relationship between two vastly different sounding works written in 1806 and 1997.

The second Silver Oak Series installment on Wednesday, July 31st is an all-solo piano evening featuring Joyce Yang, Stephen Prutsman and Anne-Marie McDermott. The program culminates with Bach's iconic Goldberg Variations, which consist of an Aria and 30 variations—a format that Bach did not often employ. Tomes have been written about this now well-known work, including stories that may or may not be true about a certain insomniac Count who requested a work that his trusted composer/performer companion could be given to play as a way of helping him to sleep. Canadian pianist Glenn Gould’s 1955 debut recording of the work on Columbia Masterworks sparked the Goldberg’s widespread fame.
On the first half of the solo piano program, Joyce Yang plays two works by the 53-year old American composer Sebastian Currier, the first of which is from 1997 and entitled Scarlatti Cadences.  It is an homage to the 18th century Italian composer and keyboardist Domenico Scarlatti. The second work is a fiery composition called Brainstorm. Also in the first half of the evening Stephen Prutsman creates a thought provoking pairing of a few of his own original compositions side by side with Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.

The final concert of the Silver Oak Series on Thursday, August 1st pairs two major works of the chamber music repertoire that may seem worlds apart, yet dozens of concert programs share these giants of music—Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Olivier Messiaen. Opening with Mozart's cherished Clarinet Quintet and closing with the profound and monumental Quartet for the End of Time, the evening takes the listener on a journey of contrasts between light and dark, and eventually to transcendence. Quartet for the End of Time was written by Messiaen while captive in a German concentration camp in World War II and premiered by him and three other prisoners, adding layers of meaning to the haunting sounds and the stunning silences of the work's eight movements.

Young Professionals-in-Residence                                    
Every summer two talented, emerging chamber music ensembles in the early stages of major careers are chosen to perform, teach, and learn across the varied spectrum of Bravo! Vail concerts and educational activities. In 2013, Bravo! Vail’s two Young Professionals-in-Residence groups are the “sonically delightful and expressively compelling” (Strad) Jasper String Quartet, winner of the 2012 Cleveland Quartet Award, and Cantus, described by Fanfare magazine as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States.” Rehearsing and performing without a conductor or music director, the nine members of Cantus are renowned for adventurous programming spanning many periods and genres, including work commissioned specifically for the group.

FREE Concerts: Education and Community Engagement Programs                      
This summer Bravo! Vail offers 14 different free, hour-long chamber music concerts in venues throughout the Vail Valley.  Greatly expanded in number from previous seasons, these free chamber music performances are Bravo! Vail’s way of actively engaging even larger numbers of people throughout the region. A favorite is sure to be the weekly free concert series at the Vail Interfaith Chapel. Ten times over five weeks on consecutive Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1:00 p.m., audiences will be treated to some of the greatest chamber musicians in the world performing a wide variety of exciting programs.  Other performance facilities include the Beaver Creek Chapel, the Edwards Interfaith Chapel, and locations in Gypsum and elsewhere throughout the Valley.

Three programs will feature pianists: Anne-Marie McDermott performing an all Haydn program at the Beaver Creek Chapel on Tuesday, July 2nd; Pedja Muzijevic playing Chopin's 24 Preludes at the Vail Interfaith Chapel on Tuesday, July 30th; and Joyce Yang offering Schumann and Rachmaninoff on Thursday, August 1st, also at the Vail Interfaith Chapel.

Most of the remaining concerts will feature the Young Professionals-in-Residence—Cantus and the Jasper String Quartet. Cantus, the award-winning male a cappella vocal ensemble who captivated audiences last summer, will return with equally fascinating programs arranged by themes such as "When Twilight Falls," "Sumer is Icumin In," and "On the Shoulders of Giants."

The Jasper String Quartet returns with equally compelling programs. Says J Freivogel of the Jasper, "Each program unravels a different composer's mastery. July 22nd focuses on making Anton Webern's music accessible; July 23rd explores Op. 131 (the quartet Beethoven said was his best); July 25th pairs the American Samuel Barber and Béla Bartók, and July 29th gets inside Aaron Jay Kernis's great 2nd quartet by highlighting distinct musical influences on the work. We really like these programs."

Free Family Concert by National Repertory Orchestra                                               
Even the youngest members of the family can be exposed to the sounds of a live symphony orchestra in Bravo!  Vail’s annual appearance by the National Repertory Orchestra on Sunday, July 14th at 11 a.m.  This concert is fun for the whole family. Pack a picnic, bring a blanket and sit on the lawn, or enjoy the concert from the pavilion.  This is a complimentary performance and tickets are not needed. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Gates open at 10 a.m. with an Instrument Petting Zoo.  

Before the Music Series
Formerly known as Behind the Music, this series of late afternoon pre-concert talks is led by some of Colorado’s most prominent musicologists. The pre-concert talks provide insight into the composers’ lives and the repertory on the evening's concert program.
“Before the Music enhances the concert experience immensely. The speakers bring the music to life with great insight, enthusiasm and charm,” says Jacqueline Taylor, Bravo! Vail’s Director of Artistic Planning.
The summer 2013 Before the Music lineup is as follows.  All five talks begin at 5 p.m. in the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens just prior to the 6 p.m. concerts at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater.
