New England Conservatory: Jordan Hall
Boston, Massachusetts
Monday, 1 November 2010 - 8:00 PM
Whether playing in orchestras, performing in chamber music, singing in opera, oratorio or recital, New England Conservatory graduates have gone on to make important contributions to the musical life of Boston, New England, the United States, and the world. In the 26th season of First Monday at Jordan Hall, founder and artistic director Laurence Lesser pays tribute to these NEC alumni, inviting them back to the musical font to perform with current faculty, students and friends. Lesser’s goal: “Every piece on every program will include at least one alumni performer.” He explains: “This is a great moment for NEC, because the depth and quality of the alumni pool is truly wonderful.”

Tonight's concert features The Boston Trio (in photo), ensemble-in-residence in NEC's Preparatory School. Two thirds of that group are alumnae; all teach in the Prep. The Schuller work is performed in honor of the composer (and former NEC President's) 85th Birthday. It features double bass players from the Boston Symphony. The Brahms Sextet was suggested by Malcolm Lowe, BSO Concertmaster, who wished to perform with some of his younger NEC/BSO colleagues Julianne Lee, Blaise DeJardin, and Glen Cherry. That ensemble is rounded out by faculty violist Dimitri Murrath and cellist Paul Katz.
