For ticket information call 858-534-4637 or go to lajollasymphony.com

UC San Diego Distinguished Professor of Music and La Jolla Symphony and Chorus Music Director Steven Schick will conduct performances of the following pieces:

  • Symphony of Psalms by Igor Stravinsky (1930)
  • new true mirrors, furrowed, flooded, extended quite far by Kevin Zhang (2016)
  • In the Midst of Flux by Gity Razaz (2013)
  • Symphony No. 6 by Ludwig van Beethoven (1808)

This performance will feature classical and neo-classical compositions that demonstrate two radically different approaches to the symphony as Beethoven’s loving evocation of the Austrian countryside follows the stark beauty of Stravinsky’s devout statement of faith. These iconic works share the stage with pieces by two emerging composers. Kevin Zhang, this year’s Thomas Nee Commission recipient, will present a concerto for two violins, performed by co-concertmasters David Buckley and Peter Clarke. The young Iranian-American composer Gity Razaz balances influences from two musical worlds with enormous sophistication in her 2013 composition.

ArtPower presents a performance by the L-E-V Dance Company.

The L-E-V Dance Company derives its name from the Hebrew word for heart (lev). OCD Love, the company’s latest work, is a powerful piece danced to pulsating techno beats created by DJ Ori Lichtik, one of the pioneers of techno in Israel. The piece deals with obsessive-compulsive disorder, which poses challenges for love and for life; it is about love that always misses or lovers who keep missing each other. The brainchild of choreographer Sharon Eyal, former dancer and resident choreographer with Batsheva, and arts and rave producer Gai Behar, L-E-V will make its ArtPower debut with this piece, performed by six astoundingly agile dancers.

“The company (pronounced lev) is new . . . but it has a defined style that it takes most troupes years to develop.”The New York Times

ArtPower presents a performance by the Ensō String Quartet.

Named “one of the eminent string quartets of our era” by Classical Voice, the Grammy-nominated Ensō String Quartet has risen to the top rankings of chamber music performers. Founded at Yale University in 1999, the quartet has been described by The Strad as “thrilling” and praised by the Washington Post for its “glorious sonorities.” The quartet went on to win numerous awards, including top prizes at the Concert Artist Guild competition and the Banff International String Quartet competition. Derived from the Japanese zen painting of the circle, enso represents many things: perfection and imperfection, the moment of chaos that is creation, the emptiness of the void, the endless circle of life and the fullness of the spirit.

The Ensō String Quartet's program will include:
Alberto Ginastera: String Quartet No. 2

Giacomo Puccini: Crisantemi

Maurice Ravel: String Quartet in F Major

Hugo Wolf: Italian Serenade

ArtPower presents a performance by the Dublin Guitar Quartet.

They might play traditional Spanish-style classical guitars, but they’re not your standard guitar ensemble. Described as a “quartet with a difference” by the Irish Times, the Dublin Guitar Quartet is the first classical guitar quartet devoted entirely to new music. Since their formation, the quartet has worked to expand the genre’s limited repertoire by commissioning new works and adapting modern masterpieces. With the help of 8- and 11-string guitars, the quartet has created an original catalogue of arrangements by composers such as Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Arvo Pärt and György Ligeti. Expect a dynamic, entertaining and completely novel concert experience at their San Diego debut with ArtPower.

The quartet's program will include:

Bryce Dessner: Aheym

Philip Glass: Saxophone Quartet

Rachel Grimes: Book of Leaves

William Kanengiser: Gongan

Nikita Koshkin: Changing the Guard

György Ligeti: Inaktelki Nóták and Mátraszentimrei Dalok

ArtPower presents a performance by the Bereishit Dance Company.

Founded by choreographer Park Soon-Ho, Bereishit is a Seoul-based dance company that approaches the Korean traditional culture from a contemporary perspective. The company explores the issues of identity and transformation with a dance style that merges the control and full-body excitement of break dance with sleek artistry and urban cool.

With an all-male cast, Bereishit’s West Coast debut includes two works: Bow, an athletic duet inspired by the tradition of archery, explores the boundaries of sports and dance, while the intensely physical Balance and Imbalance features brilliant and fun interplay among five dancers, a pair of Korean traditional drummers and one traditional pansori singer.

“The street style in dress and movement disguises finely honed skill in balancing bodies at extraordinary angles and in extraordinary configurations.”—Critical Dance

UC San Diego Distinguished Professor of Music and La Jolla Symphony and Chorus Music Director Steven Schick will conduct performances of the following pieces:

Giuseppe Verdi: Reqiuem

Guest artist include Ariana Strahl (soprano), Victoria Vargas (mezzo-soprano), Robert Breault (tenor), Colin Ramsey (bass-baritone), the San Diego Master Choral and the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus.

Verdi composed his magnificent Requiem in 1874, when he was in his sixties and thought that he had retired. Requiem was composed nearly by accident: Verdi proposed that a setting of the great text should be made by a group of composers, but when the others dropped out, he wrote the whole thing himself. Millions of music lovers have been grateful ever since for Verdi’s return from retirement. The La Jolla Symphony and Chorus will be joined in this production by guest choruses and operatic soloists for the concert event of the season.

Wednesdays@7 presents On Structure, the collaborative project of Jessie Marino and Natacha Diels.

On Structure is a sound-centric performance duo. The 
New York based ensemble uses improvised and composed
Sounds {and the fluctuation of these sounds} to brew 
Transferable art pieces which may 
Ravage the realms of the performer, audience or space itself. 
Uncovering the hidden motions of sound, freeing 
Compositions from the fluorescence of the concert expectation. 
Topsy-turvy. 
Use of lasers, wigs, electronics, cellosandflutes; 
Repurposing life experiences for music glitches and muscle twitches. 
Eclipse boundaries of the stage.

ArtPower presents a performance by the St. Lawrence String Quartet.

Back by popular demand, the “witty, buoyant, and widely attentive” (The Gazette, Montreal) St. Lawrence String Quartet has developed an undisputed reputation as a world-class chamber ensemble. Serving as ensemble-in-residence at Stanford University since 1998, the quartet continues to build their reputation for imaginative and spontaneous music making through an energetic commitment to the established quartet literature, as well as the championing of new works by composers like John Adams, Osvaldo Golijov, Ezequiel Viñao and Jonathan Berger.

The quartet's program will include:

John Adams: Second Quartet

Ludwig van Beethoven: String Quartet No. 16 in F Major, Op. 135

  • Modest Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition

Featuring guest flutist Carlos Aguilar (2015 Young Artists Winner).

Continuing the La Jolla Symphony and Chorus' season theme of music created during the midpoint of composers' careers, guest composer Michael Gerdes will lead the perennial favorite Pictures at an Exhibition, composed when Modest Mussorgsky was 35 years old. That should have been the midpoint of a great career, but–tragically–Mussorgsky was dead only seven years later. The La Jolla Symphony and Chorus Young Artists first place winner Carlos Aguilar will perform Carl Nielsen’s Flute Concerto, a very playful (and very funny) piece of music. Vivian Fung offers her own set of “pictures” in a colorful musical response to works of public art from the 2014-16 Vancouver Art Biennale.

Ticket information: 858-534-TIXS (8497)

ArtPower presents a performance by the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company.

The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company was born out of an 11-year collaboration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, who passed away in 1988. During this time, the two dancers redefined the duet form and foreshadowed issues of identity, form and social commentary that would change the face of American dance. The Company has performed worldwide in over 200 cities in 40 countries on every major continent and is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the dance-theater world.

The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company returns to UC San Diego with Play and Play: An Evening of Movement and Dance, which includes two works—D-Man in the Waters and Story/. Both will be accompanied by live music.
