New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia and Dallas Symphony Orchestras in Residence, Plus Chamber Music and More, All in Rocky Mountains (June 25–Aug 4)


From the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival announces its 25th anniversary season, which runs for seven weeks from June 25 to August 4. Celebrated pianist Anne-Marie McDermott returns for a second term as artistic director, and once again the Vail Music Festival boasts not one but three world-class resident orchestras: the New York Philharmonic, returning under music director Alan Gilbert for its tenth summer; The Philadelphia Orchestra, whose new music director designate Yannick Nézet-Séguin makes his Vail Music Festival debut; and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and its music director, Jaap van Zweden, Musical America’s Conductor of the Year 2012. Programming highlights for this landmark season include numerous Festival premieres; multi-event immersions in the art of Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Gershwin; a series juxtaposing time-honored classics with trailblazing new music; plus chamber music, jazz, and pops galore. New York’s Gabriel Kahane returns for an encore performance of his 2011 Festival commission, while the Cantus Vocal Ensemble and Jasper String Quartet serve as 2012’s Young-Professionals-in-Residence. An impressive guest-star roster presents more than 30 soloists, including pianists Yefim Bronfman, Kirill Gerstein, and Benjamin Grosvenor; violinists Joshua Bell, James Ehnes, and Jennifer Koh; cellist Alisa Weilerstein; vocalists Susanna Phillips, Curtis Stigers, and Tracy Dahl; and electric guitarist/composer Steven Mackey. Ensembles include the Calder Quartet, Tiempo Libre, and Opus One, and guest conductors number Andrey Boreyko, Stéphane Denève, Bramwell Tovey, and Jeff Tyzik among them. As before, chamber concerts will be held in the intimate Vail Mountain School and Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek, while large-scale concerts take place in Vail’s spectacular Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, which accommodates 1,260 guests in covered seating and an additional 1,300 on the expansive grassy hillside, with its breathtaking view of the Rocky Mountains.
 
Anne-Marie McDermott has been called “one of the great pianists of her generation” (Philadelphia Inquirer). Following the success of last year’s Festival, she returns for her second yearas Artistic Director, the third in the Festival’s history.She explains:
 
The 25th anniversary of the Festival has been designed both to honor the past, guided so brilliantly by Executive Director John Giovando, and to embrace the future. The staples of the orchestral repertoire will be stunningly rendered by our three great orchestras, while we continue to introduce audiences to works – old and new – not yet heard in Vail. My goal is to make it all excellent, fun, rich, vital, and infused with passion.”
 
To launch the silver anniversary season, McDermott has invited her two esteemed predecessors, flutist Eugenia Zukerman and Festival co-founder violinist Ida Kavafian, to join her for a free and festive evening of music (June 25). This marks the first of McDermott’s numerousFestival appearances, which include one of the season’s many premieres, a performanceof Tchaikovsky’s Second Piano Concerto on an all-Tchaikovsky program with the New York Philharmonic, guest conducted by Grammy Award-winner Bramwell Tovey (July 21). The Artistic Director also joins three of her favorite fellow pianists for “4 x 4: A Two-Piano Extravaganza Redux,” which re-visits last year’s similar and resoundingly successful event, and with which the present season concludes (Aug 4).
 
To honor the milestone season, 2012 sees a number of important works unveiled at Bravo! Vail for the first time: besides McDermott’s Tchaikovsky performance, these Festival premieres include Nielsen’s Third Symphony and Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat, Op. 83 (July 26) and Mozart’s Mass in C minor (July 27), both by the New York Philharmonic; Bruckner's Eighth Symphony (July 1); and the concert version of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess by the Dallas Symphony (June 30). Upcoming artistic debuts include eminent conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, just prior to his inaugural season as music director of The Philadelphia Orchestra, and superstar violinist Joshua Bell.
 
With the Philadelphians under French maestro Stéphane Denève, Bell traverses the beloved and soulful Violin Concerto of Felix Mendelssohn (July 14); the great German early-Romantic is one of three composers whose art is explored in depth this season. Composers often forge their most potent musical ideas into works for just a few players, and, like last summer, Vail Music Festival’s acclaimed chamber music offerings are presented as “Big Music for Little Bands.” Some of Mendelssohn’s finest works are tendered under this rubric, with 2011 MacArthur Fellow, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, and “risk-taking, high-octane” (Strad) violinist Jennifer Koh joining Artistic Director McDermott to play his perennially popular Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor (June 28). Similarly, Kavafian, Vail Music Festival’s first artistic director and co-founder, joins McDermott and cellist Peter Wiley for Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio No. 2 in C minor, which was dedicated to composer Louis Spohr (July 29). Members of The Philadelphia Orchestra come together to play the inimitable Octet in E-flat on a program with Mendelssohn’s Songs, sung by 2010 Beverly Sills Artist, soprano Susanna Phillips, to McDermott’s piano accompaniment (July 10).
 
All three of these “Big Music for Little Bands” chamber events juxtapose Mendelssohn’s music with that of Vail Music Festival’s second featured composer, his compatriot Johannes Brahms. Perhaps the quintessential master of Romantic chamber music, Brahms’s evocative First Piano Trio in B is coupled with Mendelssohn’s First (June 28), while his Quartet for Piano and Strings No. 1 in G minor balances Mendelssohn’s Second Piano Trio in a performance by the Opus One Piano Quartet, comprising violist Steven Tenenbom with McDermott, Kavafian, and Wiley (July 29). Likewise Mendelssohn’s Octet and Songs provide the foil for Brahms’s own Songs and Trio for clarinet, cello, and piano in A minor, which features Lionel Tertis International Competition-winner Paul Neubauer on viola (July 10).
 
Brahms also figures prominently in Vail Music Festival’s 2012 orchestral programming, with performances of four major works scheduled. Both the New York Philharmonic and The Philadelphia Orchestra have selected Brahms symphonies for their opening concerts, the New York ensemble beginning its residency with the First, under dynamic Russian guest conductor Andrey Boryeko (July 20), while for Nézet-Séguin’s debut, the Philadelphians undertake Brahms’s dark and introspective Fourth. This shares a program with the composer’s sole Violin Concerto, performed by violinist James Ehnes, “the Jascha Heifetz of our day” (Globe and Mail) (July 6). Under music director Alan Gilbert, the New York Philharmonic tackles Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto in B-flat with Grammy Award-winning powerhouse pianist Yefim Bronfman as soloist (July 26). And the Dallas Symphony, under Musical America’s Conductor of the Year, Jaap van Zweden, collaborates with Koh and Weilerstein in a performance of the composer’s final orchestral work, the sonorous Double Concerto, alongside Schubert’s Ninth Symphony, the “Great” (June 29).
 
By contrast with the two German Romantics, the third composer to come under the spotlight at Vail Music Festival this season is George Gershwin, who died 75 years ago this July and who, in his short life, penned much of America’s most recognizable music. This includes the song favorites performed by renowned Canadian coloratura soprano Tracy Dahl, with the New York Philharmonic under Tovey (July 22). Beloved and equally familiar is the composer’s “folk opera” Porgy and Bess, the concert version of which – in its premiere Festival performance – forms the centerpiece of the all-Gershwin program presented by the Dallas Symphony and leading pops conductor Jeff Tyzik (June 30).
 
Besides the three composer immersions, another cornerstone of the 25th anniversary season is the introduction of McDermott’s new “Silver Nights” series: three evenings of chamber music written over the past 500 years, in the relaxed and beautiful setting of Vail’s Donovan Pavilion. The three programs juxtapose music from past centuries by composers like Couperin, Schubert, and Debussy, whose music has been successfully absorbed over time into the mainstream, with thorny experimentalists like Charles Ives and composers of our own day like Thomas Adès and Osvaldo Golijov. These include Steven Mackey and last summer’s Composer-in-Residence Gabriel Kahane, who will be in attendance at the Festival and taking part in performances of their own music. After a successful performance at the Festival in 2011, the Calder Quartet returns with the first performance of the string quartet-version of Philip Glass’s American Four Seasons, featuring soloist Robert McDuffie. Between hour-long sets, audience members can enjoy a glass of wine as they socialize with players and composers, learning directly from the artists themselves about the music they love and why it attracts them. By presenting new music in so sympathetic a light, this creative programming represents a delightful and highly innovative approach to audience development (July 31–Aug 2).
 
The upcoming anniversary season includes concerto appearances from a stellar lineup of soloists. Reigning Gilmore Artist Kirill Gerstein – recent Artist-in-Residence at the Houston Symphony’s RachFest and “one of the most respected pianists of his generation” (New York Times) – returns to perform Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Nézet-Séguin, on a program with Tchaikovsky’s final Symphony, the “Pathéthique” (July 7). The New York Philharmonic hosts the debut of teenage piano sensation Benjamin Grosvenor, just named one of the year’s top ten Britons by London’s Daily Telegraph. Grosvenor plays Saint-Saëns’s Second Piano Concerto with Boreyko conducting, on the same program as Brahms’s First Symphony (July 20). In addition to her Tchaikovsky premiere, McDermott undertakes Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25 in C with the Dallas Symphony and van Zweden (June 27). Pianist Inon Barnatan – “a player of uncommon sensitivity” (New Yorker) – plays Bach’s Keyboard Concerto in F minor with the same forces (July 1). “Remarkable musician” (Washington Post) Alban Gerhardt plays the Elgar Cello Concerto with the Philadelphians (July 13) while violinist Sheryl Staples joins Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic for renditions of “Winter” and “Spring” from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons (July 25).
 
On a lighter note, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra demonstrates its versatility on Independence Day, with the wildly popular annual “Patriotic Celebration” (July 4). This year’s event, a co-presentation with the Vail Valley Foundation, features legendary jazz vocalist Curtis Stigers and guest pops conductor Jeff Tyzik in a musical partnership. Prior to the Patriotic Celebrations, Curtis Stigers and Jeff Tyzik perform “Swingin’ with Curtis Stigers” which is co produced by Vail Jazz Foundation (July 2). Steven Reineke, music director of the New York Pops, returns to conduct The Philadelphia Orchestra in “Three Wicked Divas,” which features two Broadway stars, Helen Hayes Award-winner Stephanie J. Block and Julia Murney. Joining them is one of Vail Music Festival’s two Young-Professionals-in-Residence, Cantus, described by Fanfare magazine as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States.” The Philadelphia Orchestra’s assistant conductor, Cristian Macelaru, will conduct the celebrated Cirque de la Symphonie, in which live orchestral music accompanies the circus troupe’s spellbinding stunts (July 8). Cantus also presents the first three events in the Festival’s “Free & Easy” series, which comprise hour-long concerts in a relaxed setting with free admission (July 9, 10, & 18). The remaining two are courtesy of the other Young-Professionals-in-Residence, the Jasper String Quartet, winner of the 2012 Cleveland Quartet Award (July 23 & 30).
 
The Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival also offers four intimate “Soirées,” comprising solo piano recitals by Bronfman (July 24) and McDermott (July 17); a “Gypsy Affair” from soprano Susanna Phillips, violist Neubauer, and McDermott (July 9); and an evening of chamber music from the Calder Quartet with Ida Kavafian and Steven Tenenbom (July 30).
 
Rounding out the season’s generous programming is a free family concert by the National Repertory Orchestra performing Bach’s Double Violin Concerto(July 12), and audiences can put on their dancing shoes and let loose with Tiempo Libre. Based on its Bach in Havana recording, this hot Cuban music group’s “Big Music for Little Bands” show takes the music of Bach as its inspiration and aims to have everyone on their feet (July 16). The 25th Anniversary Gala, comprising a dinner, dance, and auction to the theme of “Under the Silvery Moon,” will be held on July 21.
 
Tickets for the 25th anniversary season will be available for purchase starting Monday, April 23. See www.vailmusic.org for further details.
