February 3 & 4
Revel in the joyous exuberance and irresistible dance rhythms of Arturo Márquez’s showstopping new violin concerto, Fandango. It was written especially for dynamic virtuoso Anne Akiko Meyers, and she joins Giancarlo Guerrero and the Nashville Symphony for these performances. The bold, majestic music of Chen Yi draws from both the Chinese folk and Peking Opera traditions. The program concludes with Ravel’s dazzling Rapsodie espagnole, which evokes a sensuous Spanish night, lively dances and a colorful fiesta.
A true visionary helping to shape the future of jazz, Makaya McCraven represents a rising generation of globally-minded, genre-bending music makers. Hailing from Chicago’s vibrantly creative jazz scene, this cutting-edge drummer, producer and sonic collagist draws on hip-hop and other styles to push the boundaries of jazz and rhythm to create forms of his own. For this very special Schermerhorn appearance, he’ll bring a 13-piece band to present In These Times, a large-scale sociopolitical-themed performance of poly-metered repertoire. Complemented by archival film footage of black musicians and activists, it also features a spoken-word element that draws on interviews by the late oral historian Studs Terkel.
