TCHAIKOVSKY Piano Concerto No.1
HOLST The Planets

David Wroe conductor
Yoonie Han piano
New Jersey Festival Orchestra

NJ Festival Orchestra's 2014-2015 season opens dramatically with two iconic works composed in the final days of the Romantic period in music and at the sunset of the Russian and British empires. Lush and grand, and one of the world's most-loved and instantly recognizable works, Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 has the "end of an era" texture to it. Coupled with the inter-galactic conflict of Holst's The Planets, we have nothing short of an artistic and historical threshold heralding the beginning of World War I.

Featured soloist is the internationally acclaimed, award-winning pianist Yoonie Han.

Love Triangles - Comic AND Deadly
In collaboration with Opera at Florham

Ridge Performing Arts Center,
Basking Ridge

MASCAGNI Cavalleria rusticana
SCARMOLIN The Interrupted Serenade

David Wroe conductor
New Jersey Festival Orchestra

Love can inspire the human spirit to soar skyward, but it is the corrosive element of jealousy that plunges it into the depths of darkness. International guest soloists join NJFO and Opera at Florham to present two takes on jealousy: Scarmolin's lighthearted farce in the tradition of a Mozart opera buffa and Mascagni's renowned deadly serious love triangle, where the only resolution is murder.

Strauss Four Last Songs
ORFF Carmina Burana

David Wroe conductor
International guest soloists
Pro Arte Chorale
New Jersey Festival Orchestra

"O Fortuna!" The season culminates with a monumental performance of one of the best known and most loved choral/orchestral works of the 20th century, Carmina Burana. Join NJFO on a robust musical journey of driving rhythms and jaunty dance patterns capturing the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the emergence of Spring, and the hollow pleasures of drinking, gluttony, gambling, and lust. Complementing this breathtaking experience is Richard Strauss' Four Last Songs, a hauntingly beautiful contemplation of the end of...well everything.

Tickets $75 | $58 | $48 | $26 | students $13

or call 908-232-9400 (Westfield performance)
