Matt Haimovitz and Christopher O'Riley with All Classical Portland


Cellist Matt Haimovitz has never been content to just "be quiet and play the music". That statement, often fired at musicians when they express their opinions, has been heard with greater frequency in recent years. One could argue that a musician is paid to play; but it can also be argued that music as an art form, exists to express ideas as well as emotions. Mr. Haimovitz lets the music speak for itself, and convey some sense of the times in which we live. "TROIKA" anchors itself on three great 20th century Russian composers, each of whom composed great works for cello. The "iconic triumvirate" is how they describe Rachmaninov, Shostakovich and Prokofiev, whose monumental cello sonatas form the main structure of the 2-CD set. The program is political in the sense that these works are documents of a country that has seen tremendous change in its 100 years since the Bolshevik Revolution. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial; min-height: 11.0px} Haimovitz is joined by pianist Christopher O'Riley (the two are known for their critically-acclaimed CD of Beethoven sonatas played on period instruments), and the two are natural musical partners. Chris and Matt also create compelling programs, as TROIKA doesn't just present three Russian cello sonatas and leave it at that. They incorporate their own arrangements of shorter, popular works by these Soviet-era giants, as well as more contemporary songs by Russian pop singers Viktor Tsoi ("Kukushka"), and the Russian feminist band Pussy Riot's song about Vladimir Putin. TROIKA has music that documents the past as well as the present, but above all, is excellently and passionately and creatively performed by Matt Haimovitz and Christopher O'Riley.

Matt Haimovitz and Christopher O'Riley explore music of the Slavic soul / IdeaStation - WCVE


The inventive duo of cellist Matt Haimovitz and pianist Christopher O'Riley is known for their adventurous and wide-ranging recording projects – from Beethoven Sonatas on period instruments to genre-bending arrangements of Radiohead and Arcade Fire. On their new 2-CD set "TROIKA" just released, they explore music of the Slavic soul. The album is anchored by the cello sonatas of the iconic trio of Russian composers – Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich – while also delving into more recently-written, unexpected, and popular works. ""It was my pleasure to spend a few moments chatting with Matt and Christopher about their fun collaboration! ""

Norman Krieger: Beethoven PC with Falletta, BPO / Classical Source review


This coupling of Beethoven's Third & Emperor Piano Concertos – Norman Krieger/Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra/JoAnn Falletta has much to recommend it. Very well recorded and, for all that the tapings are ten years apart, consistently so (the mastering was done only in April 2017) – spacious yet focussed and with good balance between piano and orchestra. Indeed the very naturalness of sound – one could be at the concerts captured here – is reflected in the performances. There are no fads or fancies; rather we get the music straight from the hip, considered as to tempo (consistently well-judged for articulate expression and buoyant direction) and dynamics (pertinent and ear-catching) and revealing Norman Krieger and JoAnn Falletta as working well and stylishly together and that her Buffalo players are not only well-prepared but very productive confreres – powerful and sensitive, with a very personable woodwind section. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial} READ THE FULL Classical Source REVIEW p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial; min-height: 11.0px}

Inspired by secular Islam, Mehmet Ali Sanlikol writes new choral work / HUFFPOST


I have been living in Boston since 1993 where I had the great fortune of completing my Master's and Doctoral degrees at the wonderfully diverse environment of New England Conservatory. However, I was born in Istanbul in 1974 and grew up in Bursa, Turkey, where I lived until I was 18 years old. My parents were Turkish Cypriots who grew up under the British in Cyprus and, as Muslims, their relationship with Islam was more cultural than devotional. When growing up, my father would only take me to the mosque a couple of times during Ramadan. Praying five times a day was not required in our household and fasting during Ramadan was just occasional. That being said, religious holidays were very much acknowledged as were religious ceremonies to honor the dead. The kind of secular profile I am describing was, and still is, common among millions of Muslims. Obviously, the terror attacks by ISIS and other extremists during recent years have prompted fear and paranoia toward all Muslims in the US and Europe. And, as a result, I see that a stereotype has taken over the media with covered Muslim women and men sitting over prayer rugs. Words by Composer, Performer and Scholar - Mehmet Ali Sanlikol, World-Renowned Musician and Co-Director of New England Conservatory's Intercultural Institute (ICI).        READ THE FULL HUFFPOST ARTICLE p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial; min-height: 11.0px}

Lee Konitz birthday celebration at Kennedy Center couldn't have been any more expressive / DC Metro Theater Arts


It's NEA Jazz Master Lee Konitz leading a quartet that includes George Schuller on drums, Jeremy Stratton on bass, and Dan Tepper on piano. And in his Kennedy Center's Birthday Celebration, Konitz couldn't have been any more expressive, or ready for flight. Nuanced, graceful, unhurried, and sublime are but a few of the descriptors that come to mind as I reflect on this exquisite evening of jazz and community. The evening began with a rendition of "I'll Remember April." Jazz Master Konitz began the piece with a solo, which he interrupted with pauses and exclamation in reference to his musical endurance, and his 90-year-old breath. Lee's Konitz's Birthday Celebration performed twice on October 14, 2017, at The Kennedy Center's Terrace Theatre.
