    “From his first entrance onward, Yang was an arresting performer: now sweet, now excitable, now chaste, now florid, and always, everywhere, in command.” — The Boston Globe

    In Mo Yang, violin

    Korean violinist In Mo Yang, First Prize Winner of the 2014 Concert Artists Guild Competition, has been hailed by The Boston Globe for his “…seamless technique and a tender warmth of tone,” combined with “…an ability to project an engaging sense of inner sincerity through his playing.”In March 2015, he won the 54th International Violin Competition “Premio Paganini” in Genoa, Italy, marking the first time since 2006 that the Paganini Competition jury has awarded the First Prize. He also garnered the following special prizes: Youngest finalist; Best performance of the contemporary original piece; and Performance most appreciated by the audience, confirming The Violin Channel’s praise of In Mo as “one of the new generation’s most talented young string virtuosi.”

    These impressive First Prize honors have resulted in numerous performance prizes for In Mo with prestigious orchestras and at renowned recital venues worldwide, including his recent Carnegie Hall recital debut at Weill Recital Hall, a concerto engagement with the Danish National Symphony conducted by Fabio Luisi, and a special recital in Genoa using Paganini’s own Guarneri Del Gesu violin, among many others.

    In Mo began the 2017–18 season with a busy summer schedule featuring his concerto debut at the Ravinia Festival with the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, debut recitals at the Dresden Music Festival and the Yehudi Menuhin Gstaad Festval, as well as concerto engagements with the Philharmonia Zurich in Switzerland and Seoul Philharmonic in Korea, plus tour of South America as featured soloist with the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. The season continues with a return to Symphony Hall in Boston for a concerto appearance with the NEC Philharmonia and return engagements with Boston’s Bach, Beethoven and Brahms Society and Virginia’s Fairfax Symphony. In Europe, he makes his concerto debut with the Orchestre Nacional de France and his recital debut in Geneva, Switzerland.

    As a chamber musician, In Mo returns to Caramoor in fall 2017 for their Rising Stars series, and he tours regularly with ‘Chamber Music from Ravinia’ and Artistic Director Miriam Fried.
    In Mo has performed as concerto soloist with the NDR Radiophilharmonie, Russian Symphony Orchestra, Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, Baden-Baden Philharmonic, Boston Classical Orchestra, Longwood Symphony Orchestra, Central Aichi Symphony Orchestra, KBS Symphony Orchestra and the Korean Symphony Orchestra. Festival appearances include Ravinia, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, New Hampshire Music Festival, Ishikawa Music Academy, Great Mountains International Music Festival, Japan-Korea Concert for Young Musicians, and Public Concert Academie de Music in Sion. Among his many earlier competition awards are Second Prize in the 2014 Yehudi Menuhin International Competition, and top honors at the 2013 Munetsugu Angel Violin Competition and the 2012 Joachim International Violin Competition.

    Born in Indonesia to a Korean family in 1995, In Mo Yang gave his debut recital at age 11 on the Ewon Prodigy Series in Seoul, followed by his concerto debut at age 15 with the KBS Symphony Orchestra. He graduated from the Korean National Institute for the Gifted in Arts in February 2011 and was then admitted into the Korean National University of Arts as a prodigy in music. He currently attends the New England Conservatory of Music, where he is the only violinist in its selective Artist Diploma program, while concurrently pursuing his Bachelor of Music degree, studying with Miriam Fried In Mo plays on the “Joachim-Ma” Stradivari of 1714, the violin used by Joseph Joachim for the premiere performance of the Brahms Concerto, through the generosity of the New England Conservatory.

    Overview

    Time magazine has called her “Africa’s premier diva.” Beninese singer, songwriter, activist, and Grammy-award winner Angélique Kidjo makes her Caramoor debut, bringing her “canyon-filling voice” (Billboard) and an energy that can’t help but inspire you to get up and dance! “The power of Kidjo’s unflappable voice, the range of her emotional expression, the stellar, genre-bending musicians who back her and the infectious, activist energy that courses through her songs all transcend any native tongue” (NPR Music).

    “Village traditions, cosmopolitan transformations, female solidarity, African pride and perpetual energy have been constants in Ms. Kidjo’s recording career.” — The New York Times

    Artist

    Three-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo is one of the greatest artists in international music today, a creative force with thirteen albums to her name. Time Magazine has called her “Africa’s premier diva.” The BBC has included her in its list of the continent’s 50 most iconic figures, and in 2011 The Guardian listed her as one of their Top 100 Most Inspiring Women in the World. Forbes Magazine has ranked Angelique as the first woman in their list of the Most Powerful Celebrities in Africa. She is the recent recipient of the prestigious 2015 Crystal Award given by the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

    As a performer, her striking voice, stage presence, and fluency in multiple cultures and languages have won respect from her peers and expanded her following across national borders. Kidjo has cross-pollinated the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America.

    With thirteen albums to her name, Angélique Kidjo has been named as the first woman in Forbes‘ list of the Most Powerful Celebrities in Africa, one of The Guardian‘s Top 100 Most Inspiring Women in the World, and is the winner of three Grammy Awards.

    The new year brings us Angélique’s newest project, her interpretation of The Talking Heads’ classic 1980 album, Remain in Light. She will record her version of the album with superstar producer Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Jay Z, Drake, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, and Taylor Swift), taking classic songs such as Crosseyed and Painless, Once in a Lifetime, and Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On) and reinterpreting them with electrifying rhythms, African guitars, and layered backing vocals. Angélique will bring this musical extravaganza to concert halls and festivals across the globe including a premier performance at Carnegie Hall and U.S. festival debut at Bonnaroo in 2017.

    Her star-studded album DJIN DJIN won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary World Album in 2008, and her album OYO was nominated for the same award in 2011. In January 2014 Angélique’s first book, a memoir titled Spirit Rising: My Life, My Music (Harper Collins) and her twelfth album, EVE (Savoy/429 Records), were released to critical acclaim. EVE later went on to win the Grammy Award for Best World Music Album in 2015, and her historic, orchestral album Sings with the Orchestre Philharmonique Du Luxembourg (Savoy/429 Records) won a Grammy for Best World Music Album in 2016.

    Angélique has gone on to perform this genre-bending work with several international orchestras and symphonies including the Bruckner Orchestra, The Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and the Philharmonie de Paris. Her collaboration with Philip Glass, title IFÉ: Three Yorùbá Songs, made its US debut to a sold out concert with the San Francisco Symphony in June 2015. In addition to performing this new orchestral concert, Angélique continues to tour globally performing the high-energy concert she’s become famous for with her four-piece band. Her rousing live show was recently captured at the revered Austin City Limits and made its television debut in January 2016.

    Angelique also travels the world advocating on behalf of children in her capacity as a UNICEF and OXFAM goodwill Ambassador. She created her own charitable foundation, Batonga, dedicated to support the education of young girls in Africa.

    Michael Brown is a pianist on the rise. Recently named an Emerging Artist of 2018 by Lincoln Center, Brown is not only “a young piano visionary” (The New York Times) but an exceptional composer as well. In his Caramoor recital, he celebrates Leonard Bernstein’s centennial with a composition of his own titled 100 Chords for Bernstein alongside selections from West Side Story. Also on the program are pieces by Haydn, Medtner, and Copland.

    Hailed by The Strad as “sonically delightful and expressively compelling” and “powerful” by The New York Times, the Jasper String Quartet bring their passion for performing emotionally personal and significant pieces to Caramoor. Presenting two contemporary pieces alongside classic works from Beethoven and Mendelssohn, the Jasper String Quartet — an alumni quartet of our Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence program — are the perfect centrepiece for a Friday evening in the Spanish Courtyard.

    Composed for a royal wedding celebration, Handel’s Atalanta is a tale full of hidden love and disguise, complete with vocal fireworks. Long dormant since its 1736 premiere, Atalanta’s lively overtures, festive melodies, and favored arioso, Care selve, were revived in 1970 and are now the perfect accompaniment to a summer evening at Caramoor. We are delighted to welcome back Nicholas McGegan, whose expertise in this repertoire covers a dozen Handel oratorios and close to twenty of his operas, along with America’s leading period-instrument ensemble, for its Caramoor debut.

    “Nicholas McGegan and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra have been making their way through this body of music for decades, and each new installment seems more strikingly revelatory than the last. — Joshua Kosman, SFGate

    Nicholas McGegan is “one of the finest baroque conductors of his generation” (Independent) and “an expert in 18th-century style” (New Yorker). In his capacity as Music Director of San Francisco based Philharmonia Baroque he has established the group as the leading period band in America. In 2005 they marked their 20-year association with concerts at Carnegie Hall, their first European tour with appearances at the BBC Proms, Snape Maltings Aldeburgh, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, and the International Handel Festival, Göttingen where McGegan was Artistic Director 1991–2011. He is also the Principal Guest Conductor of Pasadena Symphony.

    Active in opera as well as the concert hall, he has been Principal Guest Conductor of Scottish Opera and Principal Conductor of Sweden’s 18th Century theatre in Drottingholm, running the annual festival there.

    He has been a pioneer in the process of exporting historically informed performance practice beyond the world of period instruments to wider conventional symphonic forces, guest-conducting with orchestras such as the Chicago, St Louis, Toronto, Montreal, and Sydney Symphony Orchestras, the New York, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestras, the Cleveland, Philadelphia, Houston, and Concertgebouw Orchestras as well as the Royal Scottish National, BBC Scottish Symphony, Scottish Chamber, Royal Northern Sinfonia, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and CBSO Baroque Ensemble, Capella Savaria at the Esterházy Festival, and the Hallé.

    Opera companies he works with include Royal Opera House Covent Garden, San Francisco, Santa Fe, and Washington. He has broken new ground in experimental dance-collaborations with Mark Morris, notably at festivals such as Edinburgh International, and Ravinia.

    His discography of over 100 releases includes the world premiere recording of Handel’s Susanna, which attracted both a Gramophone Award and Grammy nomination. Recent issues of the same composer’s works include Solomon, Samson and Acis, and Galatea (a rarity in that it unearths the little-known version adapted by Felix Mendelssohn). Among his other rediscoveries is the first performance in modern times of Handel’s masterly but mislaid Gloria. Other important releases on Philharmonia Baroque’s own label include Brahms Serenades, Berlioz Nuits D’Ete, Haydn Symphonies, Vivaldi Four Seasons, and Handel Atalanta.

    Recent highlights include conducting the Royal Northern Sinfonia at Stage@theDock, Hull in a water-themed programme for the BBC Proms, the festival’s first concert outside of London since the 1930s. Highlights of the 2017/18 season include returning to conduct the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in the world premiere of Sally Beamish’s The Judas Passion, co-commissioned by the OAE and the Philharmonia Baroque. He will also conduct the Orquestra Sinfonica do Porto at Casa da Musica, the Bergen Philharmonic, and the SWR Symphonieorchester.

    Born in England, he was educated at Cambridge and Oxford universities. His awards include an honorary professorship at Georg-August University, Göttingen, the Hallé Handel Prize, an order of merit of the state of Lower Saxony, a medal of Honour of the City of Goettingen and an official Nicholas McGegan Day, declared by the Mayor of San Francisco for two decades of distinguished work with the Philharmonia Baroque.

    He was made an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2010.

    Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale

    Under the musical direction of Nicholas McGegan, O.B.E., for 33 years, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale (PBO) is recognized as America’s leading historically informed ensemble. Using authentic instruments and stylistic conventions of the Baroque, Classical, and early Romantic periods, PBO engages audiences through performance, tours, recordings, new works, and education of the highest caliber.

    Founded 38 years ago, the ensemble is the largest of its kind in the United States. PBO’s musicians are leaders in period performance and serve on the faculties of The Juilliard School, San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Harvard, and Stanford, among others. It welcomes eminent guest artists including mezzo-sopranos Susan Graham and Anne Sofie von Otter, countertenor David Daniels, fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout, violoncellist Steven Isserlis, and maestro Richard Egarr.

    The Orchestra enjoys numerous collaborations, including a regular partnership with the Mark Morris Dance Group and Cal Performances. PBO gave the U.S. premieres of Morris’ highly-acclaimed productions of Rameau’s ballet-opera Platée and Handel’s Acis and Galatea and L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato. In 2017, PBO produced its first fully staged opera, Rameau’s Le Temple de la Gloire, in collaboration with Cal Performances, Centre de musique de Versailles, and New York Baroque Dance Company and won an Isadora Duncan Dance Award for the production a year later. PBO co-produced a critically-acclaimed modern dramatization of Handel’s Aci, Galatea, e Polifemo with National Sawdust in New York.

    As a leading steward of historical legacy, PBO also invests in the future by commissioning new works by prominent composers such as Jake Heggie and Caroline Shaw, to illuminate the influence of 17th- and 18th-century music on contemporary creation.

    Marc-André Hamelin is an accomplished and unrivaled virtuoso when it comes to the renowned works of the established repertoire for piano. He brings to his Caramoor debut one of Schumann’s greatest works for solo piano, central to the early Romantic period, and Schubert’s elegant masterpiece – the last sonata for piano he would ever write. In “Schubert’s Piano Sonata in B-flat … Hamelin’s virtuoso piano technique was fully harnessed in the service of Schubert’s unvirtuosic music, allowing soft playing to make a more penetrating impression than usual” (David Patrick Stearns, The Philadelphia Inquirer).

    “One of the most adventurous and certainly the most courageous pianists of recent times.” — International Piano Quarterly
