Dorman Still (Violin Concerto No. 3) World Premiere
CityMusic Music Director Avner Dorman is gifted as both conductor and composer, and he shares those talents in this program featuring the World Premiere of Still, his third violin concerto, with soloist Sayaka Shoji, the first Japanese and youngest winner of the prestigious Paganini Competition in Genoa, Italy. The concert begins with a Waltz from a film score by Toru Takemitsu (1930-1996), Japanese in birth and sensibility but Western in his compositional techniques and instrumental sonorities, and closes with the Sinfonietta by 20th-century French master Francis Poulenc, which ranges from recollections of Mozart and Haydn to imitations of Parisian cabaret tunes.
All of the concerts are free, but the Thursday, March 14th performance at the Maltz Center does require a reservation. Visit this site to reserve your free ticket: https://case.edu/maltzcenter/calendar-of-events/silver-hall-concert-series/city-music
At all other venues you may simply arrive up to 30 minutes before the concert start time and find a seat.
