PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero
, conductor | Jason Vieaux, guitar

It's a night of Latin-flavored music highlighted by Ravel's Rapsodie espagnole, a lively showcase of orchestral colors and Spanish dance rhythms. With its Argentinean folk influences, Ginastera’s Variaciones concertantes will also show off the orchestra, as the piece gives a solo to each principal player in the ensemble – 14 variations in all! Virtuoso guitarist Jason Vieaux joins the orchestra for a live recording of Leshnoff’s Guitar Concerto, a virtuoso display that draws on both classical Spanish guitar and the composer’s own Jewish spirituality.

Jonathan Leshnoff's Guitar Concerto was commissioned by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and co-commissioned by the Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias, the Nashville Symphony and the Reno Philharmonic.

Come early and learn more about the music at our Classical Conversations with Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero, taking place one hour before the concert in the Balcony Lobby.

Following the concert, Maestro Guerrero will lead an informal Q&A at the back of the concert hall, on the Orchestra Level.

The evening closes with Copland's Symphony for Organ & Orchestra, the work that helped launch his career and a showcase for the incredible sound of the Schermerhorn's Martin Foundation Concert Organ.

Giancarlo Guerrero conducts the Nashville Symphony & Chorus
Featuring the Violins of Hope

PROGRAM
Verdi – Requiem

PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero
, conductor | Nashville Symphony Chorus | Tucker Biddlecombe, chorus director | Erika Sunnegårdh, soprano | Michelle DeYoung, mezzo-soprano | Alexey Dolgov, tenor | Eric Owens, bass

It's the choral music event of the year: Verdi's Requiem, a masterful creation written for four soloists, double choir and orchestra, led by Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero. One of the great composers for opera, Verdi brought his command of musical drama to this deeply poignant work, which is full of gorgeous melodies and profound emotion, moving from fear and loss to transcendent joy. This concert features a true dream-team of vocal soloists – all four singers are among the very best in their field, and together with your Nashville Symphony and Chorus, they will bring this music brilliantly to life.

This concert is part of Violins of Hope Nashville, a community-wide initiative highlighting a collection of restored violins played by Jews during the Holocaust. Learn more about the more than 30 events taking place this spring.

Verdi's Requiem occupies a unique place in Holocaust history, as it was performed by the inmates at Theresienstadt concentration camp. Even as the Red Cross was made to believe that Theresienstadt was a model resettlement village for European Jews, more than 120,000 inmates would be killed, either in the camp or at the extermination centers of Treblinka and Auschwitz.

Amid these oppressive circumstances, the inmates joined together, led by fellow inmate Rafael Schächter, for performances of Verdi’s Requiem that provided opportunities for hope and for quiet, determined resistance. Schächter said that the text gave the singers a chance to “sing to the Nazis what they could not say to them.” Their story is told in the film Defiant Requiem.
