New York Classical Players Present: Bach & Jazz

The timeless qualities of J. S. Bach’s music have enchanted audiences for centuries. In this program, NYCP explores Bach’s modernism by pairing two of his beloved works with forward-thinking pieces of the 20th century and today. Artist-in-Residence Jasmine Choi returns to NYCP for the world premiere of Patrick Zimmerli’s new jazz-inspired work, Concerto for Flute, Percussion and Orchestra. Elgar resurrects the Baroque concerto grosso form with his vividly layered Introduction and Allegro. Concertmaster Siwoo Kim solos in two of Bach's extraordinary concertos the splendid Concerto for Violin in A minor, and Bach’s Concerto for Oboe and Violin in C minor, joined by star oboist James Austin Smith.
