PARMA Recordings presents MOTO VIRTUO II, an online benefit concert with cellist Ovidiu Marinescu for New Music USA. This event is an extension of PARMA’s ongoing MOTO series, which has been praised as “bold and expressive” (Gramophone Magazine) and “tight, musical, technically virtuosic” (The Whole Note).

Since its launch in 2012, the MOTO series has premiered works by nearly three dozen composers in both recordings and performance. This live online program presents works by Robert Fleisher, Jason Newman, Kim Diehnelt, Matthew Hetz, Andrew Norman, David Nisbet Stewart, J.S. Bach, and one of the cellist’s own compositions.

How do composers craft a piece? What shapes a composer’s musical choices? Why does a piece sound the way it does? How do players learn the music? What happens in rehearsals? What do conductors do? What’s it like to play in a huge orchestra? And more.

Each presentation will offer an inside look at the craft of composers, musicians, and conductors. The works and composers covered each session will align with the PSO’s 2018-19 Season repertoire.

Join in the lively “Q & A Conversation” as Yasmin and Kim share knowledge and experiences from “Inside the Music.”

The NSO invite you to gather your musical “Souvenirs” as this concert will be one to remember! We open with the Overture to Verdi’s Nabucco – a celebration of the best themes of this opera! This year’s “Paul Vermel Young Artist” winner joins us to perform Tchaikovsky’s delightful concerto for cello and orchestra, the “Variation on a Rococo Theme.” Reynaldo Hahn’s Suite lets us showcase our wind and brass players in this work depicting an evening with a princess from the Italian Renaissance. The fun “Sorcerer's Apprentice” tops off the concert!

The NSO invites you to enjoy a musical visit to Idyllic Places. The two works by Elgar are short, yet romantically rich and expressive works; the perfect bookends to Diehnelt’s Caprio for oboe and strings. Maestra Diehnelt’s compositional style is best described as a “Nordic Palestrina” as her works possess a lyrical, vocal quality with an attention to beauty and the sense of an unfolding story. The Vaughan Williams Symphony will instantly evoke a idyllic feeling of pastoral landscapes while transporting us through a broad canvas of emotion.

The NSO presents a taste of “Distant Lands” with their performance of Alexander Borodin’s “In the Steppes of Central Asia” which evokes the high steppes of Central Asia and the meeting between Russian and Asiatic caravans.

We are excited to present cellist Kyra Saltman as soloist in Richard Strauss’ lesser-known gem Romanze for cello and Orchestra. Join us for the sounds and passions of distant lands!
