Jens Lindemann, the first classical trumpet player to receive the prestigious Order of Canada, the highest civilian award recognizing him as internationally outstanding in his field of specialty, graces the MAC stage with the show-stopping Arutiunian Trumpet Concerto. The New York Times praises Lindemann’s playing as “seductive, golden timbre and virtuosic flair.” Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, based on “The Arabian Nights,” uses dazzling, colorful orchestration with a mix of Eastern flare to tell the musical stories of an exotic princess who spins her tales each night to stay alive.
On Saturday, Nov. 2, 7:30p, COT Annual Young People’s Competition Winner, Emily Ruvoli, will be playing Concertino by Cecile Chaminade on the flute with accompanist and teacher Carolyn May.
On Sunday, Nov. 3, 3p, COT Annual Young People’s Competition Winner, Yuriy Rogachev will be playing Valse in Am (Posthumos) by F. Chopin on the piano.
