Pavel Gintov, concert pianist

Sponsored by: The Drozdoff Society and Lyric Hall Theater

“Revealed: Lost, suppressed, and forgotten masterpieces”

Pianist Pavel Gintov has been described as “a poet of the keyboard” by Marty Lash of the Illinois Entertainer and as a “musical storyteller” by the Japanese publication Shikoku News.

In this concert, Pavel Gintov will perform a breathtaking program of seldom-heard works by Lyatoshynsky, Kosenko, Drozdoff, Skoryk and Bortkiewicz.

Since his debut in Kyiv Philharmonic Hall at the age of 12, when he performed Mozart Concerto no. 20 with Kyiv Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Roman Kofman, Mr. Gintov has been touring throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States, appearing on such stages as Carnegie Hall in New York, Berlin Philharmonic Hall, Teatro Verdi Nationale in Milan, the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, and Kioi Hall in Tokyo. He has been a soloist with the Tokyo Royal Chamber Orchestra, the State Orchestra of Ukraine, Shizuoka Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa, the National Symphony Orchestra of the Dominican Republic, and the Manhattan Chamber Orchestra under such conductors as Michiyoshi Inoue, Victor Yampolsky, Thomas Sanderling, Vladimir Sirenko and Tomomi Nishimoto. Mr. Gintov has appeared on WFMT radio station of Chicago, WCLV of Cleveland, WPR of Wisconsin as well as numerous radio and TV stations in Japan, Russia and Ukraine.

A native of Ukraine, Mr. Gintov won a First Prize in the Premiere Takamatsu International Piano Competition in Japan, where he was also awarded four special prizes, First Prize in the 2010 Bradshaw and Buono International Piano Competition, and First Prize in The World Competition in 2013. Other prizes include The Bach Prize in the Rina Sala Gallo International Piano Competition in Italy, and the Prize for the Best Performance of Russian Music in the Russian Music International Piano Competition in San Jose, California.

An avid chamber music performer, Mr. Gintov has worked with such distinguished musicians as violinists Nina Beilina and Alena Baeva, cellists Yehuda Hanani and Marina Tarasova, tenor Neil Rosenshein, pianist Mykola Suk, woodwind quintet Windscape and many others. He regularly performs together with his sister, violinist Iryna Gintova. Mr. Gintov was awarded the prize for the best collaborative pianist in the International Paganini Violin Competition in Moscow.

Mr. Gintov graduated with honors from the Moscow State Conservatory, where he was a student of Lev Naumov and Daniil Kopylov. He holds a Doctor of Musical Art degree from the Manhattan School of Music in New York City, where he studied with Nina Svetlanova.

This is the fourth time Mr. Gintov has performed in the Impromptu! Series.

Admission: $30 (third row and up) -$50 (second row seating), $100 (front row seating)
Reception: $10 per person

As described in Florence Mathews’ diary, there was a longstanding relationship between St. Mary’s and the Mathews family, as the church was central to the life of the many servants who lived and worked at the Mansion during the Edwardian era. Built in 1848, and originally located on Chapel Street in Norwalk, St. Mary’s burned to the ground and was replaced by a magnificent Gothic Revival stone church in 1871 on West Avenue, half a mile from the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion.

Nicolas Namoradze, pianist-composer

Sponsored by: The Drozdoff Society and Lyric Hall Theater

The Impromptu! Classical Music Recital Series is very proud to present a vibrant young talent, composer and pianist Nicolas Namoradze.

His eclectic program tonight:

Beethoven: Eroica Variations Op. 35
Drozdoff: Sonata No. 17

Intermission

Schumann: Humoreske Op. 20
Balakirev: Islamey
Namoradze: To be announced

*******************BIOGRAPHY***********************

“I must admit, never have I heard such a Liszt B-minor Sonata as I did from Nicolas Namoradze. It’s not only due to the technical perfection, but more importantly to the strength of the conception … and the sheer level of artistic realization that I take my hat off to him” – Zoltán Kocsis in an interview to Hungarian news portal Fidelio.

24-year-old pianist and composer NICOLAS NAMORADZE, whose performances have been hailed by critics as “sparkling… sensitive and coloristic” (New York Times) and “simply gorgeous” (Wall Street Journal), has given recitals at prestigious venues in several countries around the world. He has appeared as a soloist with renowned orchestras and conductors in Europe and the Unites States, and his performances in Hungary, Georgia, Spain and the US have been broadcast on radio and television. His compositions have been commissioned and performed by leading artists and festivals in the United States.

Following his critically acclaimed US debut performing Messiaen’s “Oiseaux Exotiques” with the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra under the baton of Ken-David Masur at Tanglewood’s Ozawa Hall in 2012 (while holding the Catherine and Paul Buttenwieser Fellowship at Tanglewood Music Center) Nicolas was invited to spend the 2013 season at Tanglewood as a New Fromm Player, specializing in contemporary music.
Highlights of this past season include a residency at New York’s Chelsea Music Festival as a featured pianist and composer, appearances at the Bravo! Vail Festival as an inaugural Piano Fellow, engagements with the Albany and Newburgh Symphony Orchestras, and the composition of the score for Fabienne Verdier’s film Walking Painting.

Nicolas was born in Tbilisi, Georgia, and grew up in Budapest, Hungary, where he began his piano studies at the age of seven. When he was eleven, Nicolas entered the Program for Exceptionally Gifted Students at Budapest’s Liszt Academy of Music. After completing his undergraduate studies in Budapest, Vienna and Florence, Nicolas moved to New York to pursue his Master’s at Juilliard. He is now a Doctoral candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center under the tutelage of Emanuel Ax and Yoheved Kaplinsky, holding the Graduate Center Fellowship.

This event is a production of The Drozdoff Society’s Impromptu! Classical Music Recital Series and the Lyric Hall Theater of New Haven, Connecticut.

The Conqueror Worm Suite

Sponsored by: The Institute Library

The Institute Library is proud to present The Conqueror Worm Suite: six-part multimedia suite of music, poetry and projected visuals based on Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Conqueror Worm”, featuring music by the trumpet and accordion duo of Ben Holmes & Patrick Farrell and visuals by Natalie C. Sousa.

The duo present their original compositions (which incorporate a reading of the poem) in conjunction with a projected set of illustrations by visual artist Natalie C. Sousa. The duo will also perform music from their album “Gold Dust”, including originals, klezmer music, and arrangements of works by Dmitri Shostakovich, Erik Satie, and Ornette Coleman.

Edgar Allan Poe’s The Conqueror Worm is a short five-stanza poem containing rich imagery and a cosmic scope that has inspired numerous artists and musicians, much like Poe’s work at large. Using Igor Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale as a reference point, The Conqueror Worm Suite incorporates a reading of the poem, surrounded by music inspired by it. Holmes and Farrell share compositional duties, drawing on their knowledge of Eastern European folk music and the work of composers including Shostakovich, Chopin and Duke Ellington to create a set of music that works with and against the text’s imagery and narrative elements. The music allows room for their fine-tuned improvisational interplay, and the shared compositional format allows them to tweak and reference each other’s themes and moods lending playful moments to the proceedings. The visuals by Sousa will be projected on a screen adjacent to the performers, further drawing the audience into the landscape of Poe’s vision.

At 1PM, join us for an interactive multi-media program by the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame and see how some of our state’s most remarkable women overcame obstacles and grew into confident leaders!

Yale Camerata | Philip Moore: Requiem

Sponsored by: Yale Institute of Sacred Music

Marguerite L. Brooks, conductor

U.S. premiere of Philip Moore’s Requiem, and other works. Thomas Murray, organ.

Philip Moore was born in London in 1943. He received his musical education at the Royal College of Music. His career has since led him through a succession of the UK’s most respected choral institutions, where he has built on his expertise on the great Cathedral performance traditions.

During his student years he was Organist and Choirmaster at St. Gabriel’s Church, Cricklewood, and on graduating in 1965 he was appointed to the music staff at Eton College. In 1968 he moved to become Assistant Organist at Canterbury Cathedral, and in 1974 he succeeded Dr. Barry Rose as Organist and Master of the Choristers at Guildford Cathedral.

Moor has written music for each of the choirs with whom he has been associated, and also to commission from many others. The music is published by a large range of publishers, which include Banks Music Publications, Basil Ramsey Publications, Belwin-Mills, Cathedral Music, Church Music Society, Encore Publications, Kenwood, Kevin Mayhew, Music Sales, the Royal School of Church Music, and Thames Publications. In recent years, three more international publishers have joined the list: Faber Music has published Lo, God is here, OUP has included his Magnificat in B-Flat in Advent for Choirs, and Boosey & Hawkes has published the much-performed Three Prayers of Dietrich Bonheoffer. In 2015 Moore was elected to a two-year term serving the Royal College of Organists as President.

Dobbs Dishes on Diners at New Haven Museum

Sponsored by: New Haven Museum

What accounts for our enduring affection for the all-American diner? Whether remembered as the site of a memorable first date, for regional fare on a cross-country trip, or as a go-to spot for “breakfast” after clubbing, the diner remains a source of national nostalgia and at the heart of popular roadside culture. In conjunction with the “Road Trip!” exhibit at the New Haven Museum, Christopher Dobbs—a diner aficionado and veteran administrator at several Connecticut museums—will present “The Architecture of the American Diner: From Wagon Wheels to Stainless Steel,” on April 13, 2017, at 5:30 pm. at the New Haven Museum. Admission will be free of charge.

According to Dobbs, as a symbol of roadside America the diner has had numerous scholars and greasy-spoon buffs write about its origins and social milieu. Attempting to define the diner, writers have often assigned it four essential characteristics: the structure must be prefabricated and hauled to a site; it must have a counter and stools; it must offer “home cooking” at reasonable prices, and the cooking should take place behind the counter.

During his presentation, Dobbs will analyze a fifth characteristic that he says has been neglected: The American diner is linked to transportation design. Beginning in the 1870s with the “birth” of the diner as a horse-drawn lunch wagon, Dobbs’ pictorial history will trace the diner’s evolution from 1900s-era Pullman railroad car to the 1930s streamlined designs found in air, rail, and automobile aesthetics, and its final transformation in the late 1950s into a space-age eatery. 

Dobbs has over 20 years of extensive museum experience and is currently executive director of the Connecticut River Museum (CRM) in Essex, Connecticut. Prior to joining CRM he was director of the Noah Webster House and West Hartford Historical Society, and associate

director of education at Mystic Seaport. He has also worked for the New York State Historical Association and Conner Prairie Museum. He holds an M.A.in museum studies from the State University of New York College at Oneonta and a B.A. in American history from Indiana University.

Dobbs first developed an interest in diners as a child going out to breakfast with his father – always getting a heaping stack of blueberry pancakes. In graduate school his passion for diners took an academic turn. Since then he not only continues to search out these epicurean relics of Americana, but has written papers, articles, and regularly lectured on the architecture of the American diner and its place in our country’s culture. 

Dobbs’ lecture aligns perfectly with the New Haven exhibit, “Road Trip!”, which focuses on the joy of trading speed and convenience for the excitement of exploration and discovery of the unexpected, “Road Trip!” includes vintage photos of quirky roadside attractions, souvenirs and mementos crowdsourced from Greater New Haven residents, artifacts from the Connecticut Historical Society, Museum of Connecticut History, the American Diner Museum, and even a 1960s-inspired, turquoise-and-white diner booth, specially built for the exhibit by the New England Seating Company. “Road Trip!” was organized for the New Haven Museum by guest curator Mary M. Donohue, an architectural historian and assistant publisher of Connecticut Explored magazine. The exhibition will run through June 17, 2017.
