Itzhak Perlman returning to El Paso for concert next week

Known as the World’s Greatest Violinist, he’s the winner of 16 Grammy Awards and his violin is heard throughout the John Williams Score in the Academy Award Winning film, “Schindler’s List;” and now Itzhak Perlman is headed to the Sun City once again.

Perlman recently talked about his upcoming visit to El Paso with Felipa Solis, Executive Director of El Paso Pro-Musica.

“I am delighted to return to El Paso. I am looking forward to seeing Zuill, who is an old friend. We had a great time performing together a long time ago. I always enjoy performing for the El Paso audience!”

Perlman is referencing the 2010 performance of the Beethoven Triple Concerto, with Grammy Award Winning Cellist Zuill Bailey, alongside his daughter and pianist Navah Perlman, with the Israel Philharmonic.

That evening, Perlman held the baton and served as the Conductor.

On this trip to El Paso Perlman, along with pianist Rohan De Silva, will perform works by Beethoven, honoring his 250th Birthday, Grieg, Debussy and some exciting Surprises from the stage.

Perlman is on the road and will be traveling to El Paso from Arizona, where he’s set to perform at the Mesa Arts Center and in Tucson at Centennial Hall.  His performance in El Paso is set for the Plaza Theater on March 3 at 7:30 p.m.

A limited number of tickets are still available online and the Plaza Theater Box Office. The Concert is being presented by El Paso Pro-Musica.

Bohuslav Rattay, Zuill Bailey team up for 15th Annual Collaboration

The El Paso Symphony Orchestra (EPSO) led by conductor Bohuslav Rattay will ring in the New Year with Grammy award-winning cellist Zuill Bailey.

Bailey, sponsored by Mrs. Robert M. Graham, Sr., and EPSO will take the Plaza Theatre stage on January 17 and 18, 2020, 7:30pm.

These concerts celebrate the 15th annual collaboration between the El Paso Symphony Orchestra and El Paso Pro-Musica, whose joint mission is to present world-renowned artists to perform on multiple stages throughout El Paso, reaching a broader audience.

The concerts first half feature two of the pinnacles of the romantic classical repertoire: Saint-Saëns’s Cello Concerto No. 1 and Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations.

The concerts open with Bailey and EPSO performing Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto which is one of the best-loved of 19th-century concertos.  Next is Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations, which he wrote while going through a severe depression.  Learning to escape depression through his work, Tchaikovsky wrote the Rococo Variations for Cello and Orchestra, one of his most nostalgic affirmations of love to what he perceived as the virtuousness of the eighteenth century.

The second half of the performances highlight the orchestra in Dvořák Symphony No. 7, op. 70 in D minor.  Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony was commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society in 1883 and is a departure from the composer’s usual musical style, which is known for its brightness and folk theme-filled melodies.

While still containing some Slavic elements, the Seventh Symphony is a little less bright and contains less folk material than his earlier works, with prevalent tragic and dark themes.

Fans can also join EPSO and Dr. James Welsch, EPSO Assistant Conductor, prior to each performance at Opening Notes, 6:30pm in the Philanthropy Theatre, to get insights on the program, composers and artist.
