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 | Nashville Symphony Chorus | Tucker Biddlecombe, chorus director | Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composer

Experience the multi-Academy Award® winning 1984 motion picture, Amadeus on a vast HD screen while Mozart’s most celebrated works are performed live in-sync by a full orchestra and choir. 

Winner of 8 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Miloš Foreman’s sumptuous Amadeus is an aural and visual treat for all the senses.

Adapted from Peter Shaffer’s original stage play, Amadeus the motion picture, stays true to its origins highlighting the contrast between, as Shaffer himself described, “the sublimity of his [Mozart] music and the vulgar buffoonery of his letters” which, “read like something written by an eight-year-old.”

Amadeus weaves a beautiful, tragic fable, enchanting to children and adults alike. It has gore, a pact with God, celebrity, a masked stranger, murder and some of the best music ever written. What other film offers half as much?” (The Guardian).

The version of the film is the PG-rated original 1984 Theatrical Release, not the R-rated Director’s Cut.

Amadeus Live is a production of Avex Classics International
