A Salute to John Williams in Cleveland

Richard Kaufman's "A Salute to John Williams" opens the new Celebrity Series this week with an 8 p.m. Saturday concert of film score hits by Williams, played, of course, by the Cleveland Orchestra. Last spring Hollywood conductor Kaufman's "Music from the Movies" sold out Severance Hall.

Kaufman, a member of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer music department, has programmed music from "Superman," "Star Wars," "Jaws," "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and more. While there won't be screened projections from the films, Kaufman will comment on the music.

The Grammy-winning Kaufman, who conducts pops concerts throughout the country, said by phone from Los Angeles that last spring's Severance Hall concert was one of the highlights of his life as a conductor.

"I really felt that I was hearing what the audience was hearing," he said.

He explained the acoustics of the hall bring out the colors from every single instrument in the orchestra that makes film music work,

Kaufman has also played the violin in studio orchestras for films such as "Jaws," "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and "Animal House." Music from the first two will be heard in the upcoming Severance Hall program.

Kaufman also noted his small claim to fame as an "actor." He was Jack Nicholson's hands during a piano-playing scene in the Williams-scored "The Witches of Eastwick."

Williams wonderment

Kaufman, who supervised music for MGM film and television projects for 18 years, attested to the fact that the Cleveland Orchestra program will use the scores from the actual films exactly as created by Williams.

The Williams scores are "great music," Kaufman said.

Kaufman remembers the first time he heard "Star Wars" when the first film made for the series came out. "The music made the film for me."

The technical requirements for film music are different from those of concert music, he said. "Elmer Bernstein said something like to the effect that 'a film composer must be a great dramatist. You need to know where you don't put music. The loudest sound in a film can be silence.'"

Calling the Cleveland Orchestra "extraordinary," Kaufman said that he hopes that people who never usually go to a symphony concert, but like films, will come back once they come to Severance Hall for the first time.

"What people return for is not the piece of music so much as it is to have the experience of hearing a great symphony orchestra," Kaufman said. "Once they come, it will inspire them to spend another evening there."

More celebrities

The second concert in the "Celebrity Series" will be at 8 p.m. March 30 with Pink Martini.

The 12-piece ensemble will join The Cleveland Orchestra, conducted by assistant conductor James Feddeck.

The program will present an eclectic mix of world music showing influences from Cuban jazz, Japanese pop, Italian film scores and French cabaret.

Pink Martini includes vocalists and musicians for a piano, horns, percussion, cello, guitar, harp and bass. The ensemble has appeared with the Boston Pops and at the Hollywood Bowl.

The last "Celebrity" concert will feature jazz trumpeter Chris Botti with the Orchestra at 8 p.m. April 24.

They will play selections of Botti's award-winning and best-selling popular recordings of "When I Fall in Love" and "To Love Again" and more. Feddeck will conduct the program.

As incentive, subscription packages for the series ($42 to $172) offer all three concerts for the price of two.

'Musically Speaking'

The new season's "Musically Speaking" series, which features talks about Cleveland Orchestra programs, has been re-imagined.

The host will use videos, photos and musical examples to explore the featured work the context of the composer's life and in the world at large.

Following an intermission, the Cleveland Orchestra will perform the work.

A question-and-answer session with guest artists and musicians will follow after the concert.

This type of program has been successfully used by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and others, said Schlosser.

The series starts with a 3 p.m. Nov. 29 "Beyond the Score" event. It will feature a combination lecture-concert about Dvorak's Symphony No. 9, to be conducted by Bertrand de Billy.

Other programs include one on Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony on Jan. 10 conducted by Jaap van Zweden (another "Beyond the Score" event); and Mozart's Serenade No. 7 ("Haffner") on March 7, led by Music Director Franz Welser-Most.

The Mozart program, which completes the new "Musically Speaking" series for the season, will be hosted by actor John de Lancie, known for his character "Q" in "Star Trek."

Single tickets for this series is $31 to $82, and series tickets are $90 to $210.

If you go

Tickets for all series or individual performances may be ordered by calling the Orchestra at (800) 686-1141. All programs are at Severance Hall, 11001 Euclid Ave., in Cleveland's University Circle.

Mercedes Benz World Reveal Details Of Summer Concerts

The Mercedes Benz-branded conference centre in Surrey, will this summer play host to a series of “party in the park” style concerts by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra as conducted by Pete Harrison.

August 1st promises to be an emotional one – “The Last Night of The Brooklands Proms”. The BSO will be joined by popular opera stars Rutter and Gadd for such rousing anthems of national pride as “Rule Britannia” and “Jerusalem”, as well as several selections from the shows and the movies. “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” have been mentioned. Flags are welcome.

Both evenings promise a dazzling light show, a spectacular firework finale and “specially choreographed fire fountains” which have, apparently, never before been witnessed in the UK. Worth the price of tickets alone, surely?

Andrew Mallery, Commercial Operations Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars, said: “We are really excited to be welcoming back the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra to Mercedes-Benz World” and promises an “amazing atmosphere”.

Star Wars," "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial," "Jaws," "Munich," "Superman," "Jurassic Park," "Schindler's List," and "Indiana Jones," are all blockbuster films with music by John Williams. Though his music molds perfectly to each film, not surprisingly, it's also thrilling on its own. And on Saturday, April 17 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 18 at 3 p.m., conductor Eckart Preu proves this when he leads the Stamford Symphony in "Themes, Screams and John Williams' celluloid dreams," a concert tribute to John Williams' movie music. Preu is a great admirer of Williams' movie magic. "In Jaws he turned the shark into a menacing villain with just two low notes: BAAAH dum.\," he said. "In the Star Wars epic, Williams works on a grander, almost Wagnerian scale, creating 'leitmotifs' to introduce the central characters in the saga."
Unlike many big name composers, Williams is known for his modesty. When invited by Stephen Spielberg to create a score for "Schindler's List," his film on the Holocaust, Williams responded, "You need a better composer than I am." Won over, Williams created memorable and heartbreaking violin solos for the film. In Preu's concert with the Stamford Symphony, violinist Cenovia Cummins acts as concertmaster and peforms this stirring music. Ms. Cummins also performed violin solos for the film "Julie & Julia" with Meryl Streep.
Come early to the Palace Theater for free guided, pre-concert listening experiences. For adults, "Behind the Baton" features Maestro Preu sharing the music's history and structure an hour before the concert. On Sunday at 1:45 p.m. children 6-12 can join a free MusiKids program led by a Symphony musician. At 2:30 a costume contest for both children and adults offers fun and prizes for the audience. Concert tickets are $22 - $65, young adults (to age 35) are only $19 and on Sunday, Kids Come Free! Purchase tickets at Stamford Symphony's website or call (203) 325-4466.

Symphony Silicon Valley

Free concerts al fresco

For the second year running, Symphony Silicon Valley is teaming up with the Target retail chain to bring free live music to downtown San Jose. The Target Summer Pops series kicks off at 7 Saturday night on the campus of San Jose State University with an "American All-Stars" program. That means music by Aaron Copland, Duke Ellington, John Williams and others — including George Gershwin, whose "Rhapsody in Blue" will feature star piano soloist and San Jose native Jon Nakamatsu. Peter Jaffe conducts.

At 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Jaffe leads a program that includes works by Gioacchino Rossini, Igor Stravinsky, Williams again ("Raiders of the Lost Ark"), Elmer Bernstein ("The Magnificent Seven") and Richard Wagner ("Ride of the Valkyries"). Longtime Mercury News sports columnist Mark Purdy narrates composer Steven Reineke's setting of "Casey at the Bat." And this time, there's free ice cream (before the concert) and free music.

All concerts are on the lawn at the center of campus; enter at Fourth and West San Carlos streets. Bring beach chairs, blankets and picnic baskets.

John Williams to debut new sound system at Riverbend

Riverbend is getting a new sound system for the Pops, and John Williams will be leading a tribute to Erich Kunzel.

An HK Audio Cohedra sound system will debut Saturday at Riverbend. Costing $300,000 to $400,000, it is custom-designed to be used at Riverbend as well as in Music Hall, where orchestra officials say it will dramatically improve the sound quality at Pops concerts.

Cincinnati is the first orchestra in the world to own the sophisticated, touring sound system.

“It is actually quite unusual that an orchestra buys their own touring system,” says HK Audio sales head Christian Stumpp. “As the CSO has several venues where they play in (the two pavilions at Riverbend, Music Hall and others), they needed a mobile touring system … . that they can move from venue to venue. For the CSO, this makes way more sense than a fixed install, and for us it makes this whole story so unique and interesting.”

Audio press from Europe, the United States and Mexico will be at Saturday’s concert to report about the orchestra’s new sound system and its partnership with HK Audio. The deal marks the company’s entry into the American market.

Located in St. Wendel, Germany, the firm has designed Cohedra systems mainly in Europe, southern Africa, Asia and Australia. Its outdoor venues include the Nuremberg Classic Open Air, Germany’s largest classical outdoor festival, attracting audiences of up to 70,000. The system also has been in use at the Bach Festival in Leipzig Germany, the Handel Festival in Halle, Germany, and in arena tours of “Carmina Burana” and “Aida” in Europe.
