Yo-Yo Ma – Stuart Duncan
Edgar Meyer – Chris Thile
With guest Aoife O’Donovan

An astounding group of virtuosos – Yo-Yo Ma on cello, Stuart Duncan on fiddle, Edgar Meyer on bass and Chris Thile on mandolin — reunite live for the first time in nearly a decade. Joined by featured vocalist Aoife O’Donovan, the lively talents of these exceptional artists come together onstage to create a singular sound that’s part composed, part improvised, and uniquely American — music so complex to pull off that the group likens it to a goat rodeo, airplane pilots nickname for a situation in which many different things need to go right to avoid disaster. In the words of the Los Angeles Times, this concert presents “unlikely musicians on unlikely instruments in concerts...that [are] part blues, part bluegrass and a smidgen of Bach.”

2011’s GRAMMY®-winning Goat Rodeo Sessions was the first step in this path-breaking collaboration, producing music that NPR’s World Cafe called “organic yet composed in a way that only four deeply talented, in-tune musicians could make it,” hinting at Appalachia, Chinese classical, Celtic and jazz influences.” Now the group reunites to perform a collection of all-new music, accompanied by a new album on Sony Masterworks. These five musicians’ diverse traditions and experiences intersect to create a compelling sound that is at once global and American, a shared voice that speaks powerfully to the American experience.

PERFORMERS: Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor | Stewart Goodyear, piano

PROGRAM
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5
Barber: Adagio for Strings
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5

Bring friends and family to a spectacular night of music under the stars as Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero and your Nashville Symphony perform some of the most awe-inspiring music ever written.

The evening begins with Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, his last completed piano concerto, and it ends with his iconic Symphony No. 5.

Presented between these two energetic pieces is Samuel Barber’s elegiac Adagio for Strings. Included in many movie soundtracks, the work is today best known as one of the first musical memorials for the victims of September 11th  as critic Alex Ross remarked, “Whenever the American dream suffers a catastrophic setback, Barber’s Adagio plays on the radio.” We offer it as our own memorial for that anniversary as well as the many losses of this past year.
