BPOnDemand | 20th Century Titans

April 13 @ 7:00 pm - May 13 @ 7:00 pm
Kleinhans Music Hall, 3 Symphony Circle
Buffalo, NY 14201 United States

Themes of love, loss, and renewal highlight a program featuring virtuoso Blake Pouliot performing iconic composer Leonard Bernstein’s violin masterpiece, musically interpreting Plato’s Symposium and the varied meanings of love. Respighi’s Triptych was inspired by works of Italian Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli, and American Wayne Barlow’s The Winter’s Passed seems a perfect metaphor for the challenging time we are leaving behind.

BPOnDemand | Superb Shostakovich

April 27 @ 7:00 pm - May 27 @ 7:00 pm
Kleinhans Music Hall, 3 Symphony Circle
Buffalo, NY 14201 United States

Lush and lyrical describes both Cordero’s sparkling and serene island travelogue, and the emotionally intense Serenade of Josef Suk, although composed over 100 years apart. Their beauty and tenderness are contrasted by the eclectic, spirited, and technically challenging Shostakovich concerto, considered by some a double concerto for piano and trumpet.

BPOnDemand | Bizet’s Carmen Suite

May 25 @ 7:00 pm - June 24 @ 7:00 pm
Kleinhans Music Hall, 3 Symphony Circle
Buffalo, NY 14201 United States

Vaughan Williams’ popular treatment of a 16th-century Renaissance chant is paired with the contemporary reworking of an iconic masterpiece using primarily strings and percussion. Shchedrin’s Carmen Suite, created for the Russian composer’s prima ballerina wife, was initially banned in the Soviet Union for disrespecting Bizet’s opera.

BPOnDemand | Mahler & Mozart

June 8 @ 7:00 pm - July 7 @ 7:00 pm
Kleinhans Music Hall, 3 Symphony Circle
Buffalo, NY 14201 United States

Contradictions compel our highly-unusual season to its finale. Contemporary composers juxtapose heart-wrenching memorials and clever combinations of relaxed riffs and rapid rhythms, while Kyle van Schoonhoven's interpretation of Mahler’s song cycle of lost love and despair contrasts with Mozart’s lighthearted serenity.
