Strathmore 2010-11: PS

As a small institution, Strathmore is able to program on slightly shorter notice than some of its larger competitors. The presenter announced today that it is adding 12 shows to its 2010-11 season, including some intriguing contemporary projects that fall into the "classical" rubric.

The largest of the new additions is "The Seasons Project," with the Washington premiere of Philip Glass's "The American Four Seasons" paired with Vivaldi's original, performed by Robert McDuffie and the Venice Baroque Orchestra (November 14).

Also notable is a duo recital, in the small space of the Mansion, of Alisa Weilerstein (practically a Washington regular) and Gabriel Kahane, the indie-classical singer-pianist-composer, which will include a sonata by Kahane for cello, piano and voice (February 15).

And the NOW Ensemble, a young chamber-composer group, will give the world premiere of a piece by Alexandra Gardner, a DC composer, at its Mansion concert on September 27.

the Strathmore is absolutely GORGEOUS! I've been for a number of shows and look forward to going this season as well. Too bad I'm not a Strathmore Star yet =[
