Amherst Symphony Orchestra Concert Russian Season III: Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade

The Amherst Symphony Orchestra (“ASO”) presents the third of its ongoing series of works by Russian classical composers with a concert of music by Khatchaturian, Glazunov, and Rimsky-Korsakov. Tickets are required and are available at the door. Free for Five College students.
The concert opens with the propulsive and percussive “Sabre Dance,” from Aram Khatchurian’s ballet “Gayane,” a wild “wedding dance” of Armenian folk melodies so popular, it topped U.S. jukebox charts in 1948. The performance continues with the Romantic violin concerto of Alexandr Glazunov, with soloist Maya Bulos (Amherst College class of 2020), and closes with Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s showpiece "Scheherazade." This iconic masterpiece depicts the heroic legend of a vizier’s daughter who outwits an embittered, murderous monarch. She thus saves her own life and that of countless other women, by telling captivating tales over the course of 1001 nights.
For information on ticketing and directions to the concert, see https://www.amherstsymphonyorchestra.com/musicians
Tickets may be purchased at the door only. Prices are $10 general public; $5 senior citizens, students with ID and children under 12, and are free to Five College students with ID.

Dan Tepfer, piano "Natural Machines"

M@A PARALLELS Series Presents Dan Tepfer, Piano: “Natural Machines”

Dan Tepfer has made a name for himself as a pianist-composer of wide-ranging ambition, individuality and drive. Bringing together his undergraduate studies in astrophysics with his passion for music, his groundbreaking multimedia project Natural Machines integrates computer-driven algorithms into his improvisational process.
“When musician Dan Tepfer was a kid, he taught himself to code on an early Macintosh computer that his dad brought home one day. That little kid grew up to be a world-renowned jazz pianist. And now, he has programmed another machine: his piano. For the past five years, Tepfer has been writing algorithms that direct a specially modified Yamaha piano to play along with him. Amazing—a duet with phantom hands.” —NPR All Things Considered
“Combines superb technique with a complex set of impulses: he's a deeply rational improviser drawn to the unknown.” —The New York Times
Tickets are available in the 14 days ahead of each performance at amherst.universitytickets.com.
Single ticket prices:
General public: $18
