After a fun concert at Marble Collegiate Church today, I’m excited to continue the week of performances at Mannes on Wednesday and Trinity Church, Boston on Friday. The concert at Mannes, in the GlassBox theater, features wind ensemble music; I will be conducting Strauss’ Suite in B-flat, a lovely early piece that has hints of organ music in it (and even a fugue!). Friday’s recital will feature the chancel organ at Trinity; the program explores German organ music through three composers’ connections to Bach and the sonata. I hope you’ll join us for one of these programs!
- Wednesday, 27 February 2019, 3:00pm; GlassBox Theater, Mannes School of Music. Bryan conducts the Mannes Wind Ensemble in a performance of Strauss’ Suite in B-flat, opus 4. The concert will highlight the color spectrum of the wind section and also features Gounod’s Petite Symphonie. Free and open to the public. Details are here.
- Friday, 1 March 2019, 12:15pm; Trinity Church, Copley Square, Boston, MA. Bryan will return to Boston’s famous Trinity Church to give a recital on the Æolian-Skinner organ. The program will last approximately thirty minutes and will show off the many voices of this historic instrument in a beautiful space. Details are here and a program can be found here.
