The Orchestra Now returns to the Lehman Center as part of its “Around Town” series of complimentary concerts all over NYC. Conductor JoAnn Falletta, whom The New York Times called “one of the finest conductors of her generation,” leads the orchestra as they perform two suites and a song cycle on Arabian themes by Ravel, Carl Nielsen, and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.


Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade
Enticing and exotic. Rimsky-Korsakov’s most famous work was later adapted into a ballet, controversial in its sensual choreography.

Ravel: Shéhérazade
Susan Platts, mezzo-soprano
Ascends into feverish lyricism. Ravel sets to music the poem that helped inspire Rimsky-Korsakov to write his symphonic suite.

Carl Nielsen: Aladdin Suite
Imaginative and ornate. Nielsen was able to hear a live radio broadcast of this suite one last time while he was in the hospital, the day before he died.

The Orchestra Now – Beethoven: Symphony No. 8
