BNY Mellon Grand Classics: BOLERO!
An evening of French music to enchant! (Coincidentally, all of it was originally written for ballet.) French conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier returns to the Pittsburgh Symphony to celebrate the city of Paris. The program’s second half offers movements from Offenbach’s La Gaîté Parisienne, depicting a scene from a fashionable Parisian café in the mid-1800s. To follow, the orchestra will perform Ravel’s pulsating Boléro, which premiered at the Paris Opera in November 1928. Tortelier also leads the orchestra in a performance of Stravinsky’s Pétrushka, which tells the story of the loves and jealousies among three puppets. Maestro Tortelier chose to perform the 1947 version, which is the same year of his birth, in celebration of his 70th birthday!
As the country pauses today in recognition of the only American holiday dedicated to the memory of those who died while serving in our military, offering dramatic graveside ceremonies and moments of silence. Unfortunately much of the country will simply carry on as usual. According to recent surveys, less than 5 percent of Americans plan to attend a parade, be part of a memorial service or visit gravesites on what was originally called Decoration Day for its tradition of putting flowers on graves of the fallen heroes.
