British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is internationally recognized for his electrifying performances, distinctive sound and insightful interpretations. His virtuosic command over the most arduous technical complexities underpins the remarkable depth and understanding of his music making. Described as “one in a million...several million” by The Independent, he has also been lauded as “a keyboard visionary” by the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

There is still time to purchase single tickets for guitarist Miloš, performing at Town Hall today at 2p.

https://www.pscny.org/2022-single-tickets/miloguitarist

‘Love at first listen’ is how Miloš describes the moment when, as a child in Montenegro, he first picked up the old guitar that was lying around his childhood home gathering dust. Montenegro in the early 1990s was not an obvious gateway to classical music, hence his family were cautiously supportive when, aged 14, Miloš decided to go to a specialist music school. Leaving the Balkans and arriving in London to take up a coveted place at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music was, he says, ‘a bit like going to Mars’.

https://www.pscny.org/2022-single-tickets/goldmundquartet

“A highly individual musicality that speaks to the audience.” Counted amongst the most exciting young string quartets, the Goldmund Quartet has with its exquisite playing and multi-faceted homogeneity given convincing interpretations of the great classical and modern works of the string quartet literature for more than a decade now. Their inwardness, unbelievably fine intonation, and phrasing worked out to the smallest detail inspire audiences worldwide. PSC is delighted to present the Quartet on their first U.S tour.

Well, this happened last night. After many pandemic delays, what a joy to FINALLY premiere "Variations On A Theme of FDR" - a suite of 5 new commissions by 5 wonderful composers.
From left: Anthony Cheung, Wang Lu, Vijay Iyer, Derek Bermel and John Harbison who couldn't be with us.
Terrific music from terrific people, commissioned by Peoples' Symphony Concerts - NYC's beloved, storied (and oldest!) series which survived the Spanish Flu, 2 World Wars and will damn survive this thing too. Proud to be associated with it.

Shai Wosner on FDR Theme - February 19, 2022 — Peoples' Symphony Concerts

Today we are chatting with Shai Wosner in preparation for the "Variations on a Theme of FDR" concert happening 2/19 at Washington Irving High School.

Shai Wosner explains the genesis of the FDR Variations:

When I hit a personal milestone of being in this country more than half of my life, I looked for a way to reflect on what it all means. So I took this quote from what became known as "My fellow immigrants" address “…remember, remember always, that all of us… are descendants of immigrants and revolutionists” - Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1938 speech to the Daughters of the American Revolution and gave it to 5 composers as a 'theme' of sorts. Each 'variation' pays tribute to personalities chosen by the composers. They evoke complex journeys, evolving identities and form a mix that could hardly be more varied.

I would add the noisy rustling of one's paper program during a performance to the list of behaviors we could avoid to be considerate of our fellow music lovers!

Attended the Brahms All-Start Sextet concert on Saturday, May 12 at Washington Irving High School. I enjoyed the music very much. The old auditorium is very pretty and the acoustics are good.
