BSO Sessions: Season 1, Episode 19 – Bar Talk

Premiere: Wednesday, March 17 at 8 pm

$9.99 Pay-Per-View OR Included in $19.99 Monthly All Access Plan.

For Saint Patrick's Day, join musicians from the BSO for some bar talk about ethnomusicologist and composer Béla Bartók. One of his best-known works, Romanian Folk Dances is based on six tunes Bartók recorded and preserved during his many trips through Eastern Europe. The second piece on the program, a moody and dramatic work, splits the strings on opposite sides of the stage to create antiphonal sound effects. Its third movement is instantly recognizable and was used to great effect in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.  

Repertoire
BARTÓK (arr. Willner) Romanian Folk Dances
BARTÓK Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta
Program subject to change.

BSO Sessions: Season 1, Episode 20 – ¡Viva España!

Premiere: Wednesday, March 24 at 8 pm

$9.99 Pay-Per-View OR Included in $19.99 Monthly All Access Plan.

Jack Everly returns to BSO Sessions for a performance featuring the music of Spain as interpreted by a Spanish, a French, and a Russian composer. Albeniz' Córdoba, a standard for classical guitar, is here beautifully performed by the BSO. España, a fast and light-hearted rhapsody, was written by Chabrier after a vacation through the south of Spain. Not to be missed is Shchedrin's Carmen Ballet, a masterful rearrangement of Bizet's famous opera. Familiar melodies are reworked in ingenious ways that frequently highlight the talents of the percussion section. Be drawn in for an hour by the effervescent energy of these pieces and Jack's quintessential charm.

Repertoire
ALBÉNIZ (arr. Everly) Córdoba
CHABRIER (arr. Everly) España
SHCHEDRIN/BIZET Carmen Ballet

Earlier this month, we launched BSO Sessions, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s digital concert series. BSO Sessions shares powerful music and real stories with audiences, reimagining how we fulfill our community’s need for inspirational music and artistic leadership. We are excited to announce that we are going “all in” with BSO Sessions! In addition to the first three episodes currently available, 27 new installments of the series will be released through June 2021.

In extending BSO Sessions, we have also come to the important and necessary decision to extend subscription concert cancellations at The Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and The Music Center at Strathmore through June 19, 2021. We remain committed to bringing our audiences together but our priority must remain the health and safety of our audiences, artists, and orchestra amid the current realities of COVID-19.
