Albany Symphony Orch w/Matt Haimovitz: 'Klezmer Fantasy for Cello & Orchestra', Troy, NY, Dec 14, 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.

Fri., Dec. 14, 8:00 pm,
Troy Savings Bank Music Hall,
Troy, NY
Tickets: $23, $37.50, $46 -
