HAYDN Symphony No. 1
BERNSTEIN Symphony No. 1, Jeremiah
BRAHMS Symphony No. 1
     
NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
LAYNA CHIANAKAS mezzo-soprano
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

With the performance of his very first symphony in 1759, Franz Joseph Haydn debuted an essential refinement of the symphonic form. Later, his music won the hearts and minds of the Esterházy court in Austria; he went on to hold the position of Kappelmeister for 40 years! This post provided security and his own "in-house band" with which to freely experiment and evolve the symphony.

Haydn eventually wrote 106 symphonies earning him the title “Father of the Symphony.”

Over 100 years later we come upon Johannes Brahms who has completed his first symphony, a work so long in the making, so magnificent, so consequential, it has come to be regarded as Beethoven's Tenth! Every performance of Brahm's First is an event and that's what this will be when Neal and your DPO breathe life into this romantic masterwork.

We continue our season-long survey of select works from the pen of the great American composer Leonard Bernstein with performances of his Symphony No. 1, Jeremiah. Favorite DPAA mezzo-soprano Layna Chianakas brings her innate refinement and great depth to the vocal demands of this unique piece of music. In addition to the two Masterwork evenings, Jeremiah will be performed and profiled on the Sunday, January 21 Classical Connections concert.

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor, presenter
LAYNA CHIANAKAS mezzo-soprano
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

The unique Classical Connections format features musical examples and explanation by DPO Artistic Director Neal Gittleman, followed after intermission by a performance of the entire composition. Directly following is a casual Q&A and an Ice Cream Social with a free scoop of Graeter's. 

This first Connections Concert of the new calendar year takes us back to 1942 and Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No. 1, Jeremiah. At its premiere, the composer himself conducted the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. This programmatic symphony follows the biblical story found in the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations.

The piece has three movements: Prophecy; Profanation; and Lamentation. Not to be taken literally, the movements instead cultivate the emotions within the story. In the first movement, Prophecy, one can almost hear the prophet’s pleas. Profanation, the second movement, is a scherzo, portraying the corruption and the ensuing destruction of Jerusalem. The third and final movement, Lamentation, suggests the mournful cry of Jeremiah.

This concert is part of the 2017-2018 season-long celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Leonard Bernstein's birth. The American master is truly one of The Great Ones.

N'KENGE guest vocalist
MONTEGO GLOVER guest vocalist
CAPATHIA JENKINS guest vocalist
STEVEN REINEKE guest conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA


The new year continues to ring in with a tribute to some of the groundbreaking, sophisticated women of song.

Maestro Reineke is joined by guest singers Capathia Jenkins, N’Kenge, and Montego Glover to perform classic songs from the tradition of the Harlem Renaissance singers.

The playlist includes songs made famous by the legendary ladies of jazz: Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, and Billie Holiday. These women gave voice to to an era with songs filled with passion, hope, heartbreak, longing, and love. The tunes are now inimitable jazz classics yet our three guests - along with Steven Reineke and your DPO - bring personal interpretations that make them sound as fresh as today.

We are thrilled to welcome Maestro Reineke back to the Miami Valley and the Schuster stage. His boundless enthusiasm and exceptional artistry have made him one of the nation’s most sought-after pops conductors, composers and arrangers. He is the Music Director and Conductor of The New York Pops at Carnegie Hall, Principal Pops Conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and Principal Pops Conductor of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. A native of Ohio, Reineke is a graduate not only of the Miami University of Ohio, but our very own Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra! Welcome back Steven!
