MOZART Piano Concerto No. 14

Jeffrey Kahane, piano

SHAW Entr’acte

GRIEG Holberg Suite, Op. 40


World-renowned pianist and conductor Jeffrey Kahane joins Sarasota Orchestra for a loving look back in time at artists and works that have continued to inspire. In Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 14, Kahane performs as Mozart would have done, leading the orchestra from his seat at the keyboard in the most intimate kind of music-making. Kahane, Artistic Advisor for Sarasota Orchestra, then takes to the podium to conduct Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Caroline Shaw's Entr'acte for string orchestra. Composed after hearing a 2011 performance of Haydn's String Quartet Op. 77, No. 2, Entr'acte is structured like an 18th-century minuet, transformed by a 21st-century composer's ears. The program concludes with Edvard Grieg's beloved Holberg Suite. Written as an homage to the 18th-century Norwegian author Ludvig Holberg, Grieg's joyful collection of dance movements provides an uplifting conclusion to Sarasota Orchestra's reimagined 2020-2021 season.

 Literally gripping the arms of my seat, I was not the only one propelled on this rollercoaster of delightful music.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 Every section and soloist within the orchestra played their role with strength and beauty; every tree proud and tall. Tali served as an excellent guide leading the forces with assured confidence. The overall sound was lush and, yes, intense just where it needed to be.

 The Sarasota Orchestra was brimming with bubbling energy...  

Written byHerald Tribune

 A lifetime of musical moments, cinematic in scope, gave every section of the orchestra a leading role at one time or another. Chief among them was the virtuosic solo of concertmaster Daniel Jordan.

 It was a thrill ride resulting in an explosion of audience enthusiasm.

 Andrew Lane, the Orchestra’s Principal Pops Conductor, knows how to program a winning event and this concert had something for everyone. It also brought in a whole new audience that seemed dazzled by the performances.

 The Sarasota Orchestra played a program this past weekend filled with so much color, it was like visiting the Louvre.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 The performance... was exceptional, bringing new and stunning sonorities from a larger than usual Sarasota Orchestra under the dynamic leadership of Anu Tali.
