NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA


In 1952, when motion picture films were just beginning to brook serious competition from a new technological advancement in entertainment known as television, MGM produced a movie about a time in Hollywood’s history when studios faced a similar problem—the conversion from silent film to “talkies.” The plot: four Hollywood performers must find a way to survive the transition from silent films to sound.

One of the best musicals ever produced, Singin’ in the Rain topped the American Film Institute's 100 Years of Musicals list and ranked fifth in its list of the greatest American films in 2007. And the music featured in this musical comedy was doubtless a major contributing cause. The song list includes "All I Do Is Dream of You," "Beautiful Girl," "Broadway Melody Ballet" (composed of "The Broadway Melody" and "Broadway Rhythm"), "Fit as a Fiddle (And Ready for Love)," "Good Morning," "I Got a Feelin' You're Foolin'," "Make 'Em Laugh," "Moses Supposes," "Should I?" "Singin' in the Rain," "Temptation," "The Wedding of the Painted Doll," "Would You?" "You Were Meant for Me," and "You Are My Lucky Star."

Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra Artistic Director Neal Gittleman will conduct the entire score to the MGM film Singin’ in the Rain as it projects on a large screen above the orchestra, providing orchestral accompaniment to the film with the soundtrack stripped of all orchestral music; only the actors’ dialogue and vocals remain.

Come sing along, or just tap your toes to, with the sounds and sights of one of Hollywood’s all-time best musical films.

DAYTON BALLET & DAYTON PHILHARMONIC

A composer of immense ability, Georges Bizet possessed a special attraction to and talent for the theatrical stage. In his all-too-short 37 years he produced a tremendous amount of significant work, including the operas Carmen and The Pearl Fishers.

Yet neither achieved real success in his lifetime. Now we know and appreciate his individual genius and special touch. The Pearl Fishers was conceived after the youthful composer returned from a joyful trip to Italy. He came back brimming with inspiration.

Those influences found their way into The Pearl Fishers, a stirring tale set in the Ceylon of antiquity. As one might expect, there's a love triangle, irony, torrid emotion, and above all, beautiful melody and singing. Artistic Director Thomas Bankston has carefully selected the cast, matching each perfectly to the role at hand. The ravishing score is performed by the Dayton Philharmonic. As with the DPAA's two other season Signature Events, the Dayton Ballet joins us on stage. Karen Russo Burke's choreography is sure to illustrate the exotic setting and island culture of The Pearl Fishers.

VALENTINA LISITSA piano
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA


Valentina Lisitsa is not only the first “YouTube star” of classical music; more importantly, she is the first classical artist to have converted her internet success into a global concert career in the principal venues of Europe, the USA, South America and Asia.

The Ukraine-born artist began her musical education in her native city of Kiev at the Lysenko Music School for highly talented children and continued it at the Conservatoire in the city.

A spectacular recital in London's Royal Albert Hall before an audience of 8,000 in June 2012 set the seal on her international breakthrough. In February 2013, Valentina Lisitsa made her debut in the large auditorium of the Berlin Philharmonie.

In the 13/14 season, she also appeared at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall London, in New York and Chicago.

She made her thunderous Dayton debut with the DPO in March, 2011 and we welcome her back to the Mead stage. Don't miss it.

GUBAIDULINA Voices… Silence… 

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor, presenter
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
 
“Art originates in man’s spiritual essence, and it can return mankind to that origin.”
--- Composer Sofia Gubaidulina

Now at 83 years old, Sofia Gubaidulina (pronounced “goo-bye-DOO-lee-na”) has been writing beautiful, mysterious, compelling music for more than 50 years.

Neal has been wanting to play her music in Dayton for a long time, waiting for the right time and the right piece to introduce this amazing composer to DPO musicians and audience members.
 
That time is now.

The piece is Stimmen… Verstummen… (Voices… Silence…) a 40-minute “symphony in 12 movements” composed in 1986.

It’s quintessential Gubaidulina. A mystical mood. Magical sonorities. Unusual use of instruments. An unconventional stage plot. Poignant silences. And something really unusual: a solo for the conductor!

Intrigued? We hope so!

Welcome to one of the most special Classical Connections concerts ever.
