Orpheus Chamber Orchestra
ORPHEUS CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
Nobuyuki Tsujii, piano
Sunday, January 26, 3pm
The Standard Bearer of Chamber Orchestra Excellence
Johnny Carson had the NBC Orchestra. Jay Leno has The Tonight Show Band. If The PAC has a “house band” surely it’s the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. This past year they celebrated their 40th birthday, released their 70th recording, commissioned their 35th original work, and, because our enthusiastic audiences asked for more through their thunderous applause, they returned to Purchase for another performance of grace, subtlety, and passion. This most democratic of ensembles – there is no conductor, every musician is in charge, and critics and audiences agree that it works magnificently – is back, this time with 25-year-old Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii, the 2009 Van Cliburn International Competition winner who recently made his Carnegie Hall debut to great acclaim, as guest artist.
