Daniil Trifonov plays Schumann, Shostakovich and Stravinsky

December 7 | 5:00pm Pacific

Daniil Trifonov opens the concert with three works by Schumann, beginning with his Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood). Schumann composed these miniatures in part as a love letter to his future wife, Clara Wieck. Clara saw clearly that he had invested these “scenes of touching simplicity” with the emotional turmoil of his inner life. Schumann’s demanding Toccata, Op. 7, follows. Written when the composer was planning to become a concert pianist, the short but notoriously difficult work was designed to show off his virtuosity and stamina. Trifonov lives up to the challenge before performing a third work by Schumann, Kreisleriana, which was written as a tribute to E. T. A. Hoffmann’s memorable character Johannes Kreisler, a moody and sensitive musical genius.

Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker and other holiday favorites

December 8 | 4:30pm Pacific

United States Army Band

In 1960, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn arranged their own adaptation of The Nutcracker Suite for the Duke Ellington Orchestra. The suite is arranged for five saxophones, four trumpets, three trombones and rhythm section, but with several saxophonists doubling on other instruments such as bamboo flute, clarinet and bass clarinet. Ellington’s unique ability to create interesting combinations of instruments will be especially apparent to the listener in movements such as Arabesque Cookie, where Ellington employs clarinet, bass clarinet and flute to sound exotic melodies and textures. But whether traditional or exotic, this piece is ultimately Ellington and Strayhorn at the height of their creativity.

Steve Miller & Jimmie Vaughan: T-Bone Walker

December 10 | 4:00pm Pacific

Jazz at Lincoln Center

Renowned blues-rock guitarist, singer/songwriter, lifelong jazz fan, and valued Jazz at Lincoln Center Board member, Steve Miller returns to Jazz at Lincoln Center for an in depth look at T-Bone Walker. Considered the founding father of electric blues guitar, Walker changed the way blues was played with his unique and extraordinary solo electric guitar performances. As blues authority Pete Welding has noted, “The blues was different before T-Bone came onto the scene and it hasn’t been the same since…no one has contributed as much as long or as variously to the blues as T-Bone Walker.” Miller, having learned his first chords at age five from his godfather Les Paul, how to play lead guitar from T-Bone Walker at age nine, and then working with the best bluesmen in Chicago – Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, Paul Butterfield, and James Cotton – has incorporated his affinity for the blues into all of his major recordings, and is now working closely with Jazz at Lincoln Center to explore and expand upon authentic blues styles. Joined by blues all-star Jimmie Vaughan, B-3 organist Mike Flanigin, rising star vocalist Brianna Thomas, pianist Shelly Berg, alto saxophonist/clarinetist Patrick Bartley, tenor saxophonist Craig Handy, baritone saxophonist Lauren Sevian, trumpeter Mike Rodriguez, bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and former Earth Wind & Fire drummer Sonny Emory, Miller has chosen music that takes audiences across the bridge from blues to jazz. Pre-concert discussion at 7pm with Steve Miller, Bernita Walker, and Jimmie Vaughan. Concert begins at 8pm.
