English horn

Usher in the holiday season with the glittering opulence of the Baroque era, as Daniel Hope and New Century are joined by French trumpeter Lucienne Renaudin Vary for a vibrant Christmas program whose charms are more than ornamental. Festive favorites like Corelli’s Christmas Concerto and J.S. Bach’s third Brandenburg Concerto mingle with rare gems like Neruda’s Trumpet Concerto, creating a blizzard of music that delivers audiences to the hushed, wintry soundscape of Copland’s Quiet City. Hope and Vary close out the program with a medley of popular holiday tunes certain to bring glad tidings and good cheer.

Alexi Kenney

Guest Leader and Concertmaster
Musicians from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music

Context is crucial in New Century’s first collaboration with the students of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, featuring music that harnesses the sights and sounds of nature. American violinist Alexi Kenney leads the combined forces of New Century and SFCM in this unique multimedia program that immerses the audience on a journey from the Puerto Rican beaches of Angélica Negrón’s Marejada to the stark beauty of Joshua Tree National Park in Gabriella Smith’s Desert Ecology. A lush garden of sound blooms during the second half as our combined string ensemble performs Georges Enescu’s romantic masterwork, the Octet for Strings.

Daniel Hope
Music Director and concertmaster
Sterling Elliott

Embrace the elegant structure and exquisite restraint of Austrian composer Joseph Haydn, one of music’s most prominent “architects” during the Classical period. American cellist Sterling Elliott joins Daniel Hope and New Century for Haydn’s beloved first cello concerto, a virtuoso showpiece for the instrument. In the second half of the program, Igor Stravinsky’s playful ballet suite from Pulcinella offers a contrasting 20th century response to Haydn, using the amorous hijinks of the famous Italian clown to tinker unpredictably (and to the delight of modern audiences) with the shapes and patterns of centuries-old Classical melodies.

Awadagin Pratt

Pianist Awadagin Pratt joins Daniel Hope and New Century for this program of potent 20th century American works for strings that speak to our collective emotions. Coping with the senselessness of war is the heartbeat of the program’s first half, with composer Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson confronting his concerns about the Korean War through his work Grass. In contrast, composer David Diamond wrote his exuberant work Rounds to dispel the gloomy wartime mood of the 1940s in vivid fashion. The program closes with Leonard Bernstein’s Serenade (after Plato’s Symposium), an epic work for solo violin, strings and percussion inspired by the ancient Greek debate over love in its many forms.
