New York Nocturnes: The Apollo Trio

New York Nocturnes: The Apollo Trio
Thursday, March 3, 7:00 p.m.
Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall

This concert by the Apollo Trio centers on David Schiff’s lively and imaginative work, New York Nocturnes. Written in 2000, the work presents a series of nostalgic tableau of the composer’s youth in New York City. Cast in a form immediately recognizable as a work of classical chamber music, the musical language draws on jazz idioms from Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Cole Porter and others. An unusual mash­up of classical and jazz, New York Nocturnes is a work at once complex and toe-­tapping. The rest of the program includes pieces by the father of chamber music, Josef Haydn, and a brilliant, perfect, timeless masterpiece from Felix Mendelssohn, his Piano Trio No. 1, Op 49.
