My first quarantine online collaboration is with this amazing musician and human being from Indonesia. I met Irwansyah and his family back in Sumatra while touring with Orquesta De Cámara De Siero. There, I learnt a bit of how rich, amazing, and beautiful Batak music is. I keep those moments and the hasapi close to my heart! Please follow him and his amazing group Suarasama. Thank you Irwansyah for letting me play a bit with you!

Concert Notes and music for March 22

Though we can’t perform today’s scheduled concert, we did want to share with you the concert notes, written by our talented musicians, as well as performances of the music by other ensembles.

The music is all related to the family of conductor Leonard Slatkin. First up was to be the NYC premiere of Double Play, written by Slatkin’s wife, Cindy McTee. Then we were to perform the NYC premiere of Slatkin’s own Kinah, an elegy to his late parents. (An off stage cello solo was to be performed by Slatkin’s brother, Frederick Zlotkin.) This would have been followed by three short works by his father, Felix Slatkin: Fisher’s Hornpipe, Wistful Haven, and Carmen’s Hoe-Down. And finally, the concert would have concluded with Rachmaninoff‘s 2nd Symphony, which was given its American premiere in 1901 by the Russian Symphony Orchestra Society led by Slatkin’s great-uncle, Modest Altschuler.

You can access the concert notes and music recordings by clicking here. We hope that you enjoy these notes, and that we’ll be able to perform these works for you at some point in the future.

TŌN Courses: Leonard Slatkin webinar

Many thanks to Leonard Slatkin, who spent a couple of hours on webinar with our musicians this afternoon, sharing his insight and answering questions. We covered everything from Rachmaninoff and Beethoven to Frank Sinatra and Vincent Price!
