Albany Symphony Orch w/Matt Haimovitz: 'Klezmer Fantasy for Cello & Orchestra', Saratoga Springs, NY, Dec 13, 2007

Relive the joy of family celebrations with this "Klezmer Fantasy for Cello and Orchestra," written by Williamstown composer Stephen Dankner for the brilliant Israeli-American virtuoso, Matt Haimovitz. This is Haimovit's first appearance with the ASO. He has toured the world and gained particular attention for his multi-year solo recital tour in unconventional venues, bringing concert music to new listeners (in roadhouses, bars, pizza parlors, etc...). For this work, Dankner imagines the orchestra as a giant Klezmer Band, and pays homage to his own and Haimovitz's Jewish ancestry.

Thurs., Dec.13,
7:30 pm,
Canfield Casino,
Saratoga Springs, NY
Tickets $27
