Dec. 2: Violinist Curtis Stewart with Experiential Orchestra
Violinist and composer Curtis Stewart, nominated this year for a GRAMMY(R) for his celebrated album On Power, joins Experiential Orchestra (EXO) and Music Director James Blachly as the featured guest soloist with the orchestra on Friday, December 2, 2022 at 8pm at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music (450 W. 37th St.).
Stewart, who co-curated the program with Blachly, will give the world premiere of a new edition of Julia Perry's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, which includes the revisions that she made in 1977 to this piece from 1963, by Roger Zahab. The performance will be the first time that Perry's Violin Concerto will be performed in New York, in any edition.
The concert will also include Curtis Stewart in music from his album On Power and in Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson's Louisiana Blues Strut for solo violin in a new orchestration by David Krivit, and EXO in Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson's virtuosic Sinfonietta No. 1 for string orchestra. As part of the experiential nature of the concert, audience members will be invited to sit among the orchestra.
