“Many magnificent evenings of inventive programming.”
— The New York Times

Yale in New York, the concert series directed by David Shifrin, announces its 2013–2013 season. At the center are celebrations: of composers, performing artists, and musical forms.

Four concerts presented in Zankel Hall and Weill Recital Hall explore the deep, creative, and exciting collaborations that are the heart and history of the Yale School of Music, while paying tribute to a number of music icons. Highlights include:

• The Tokyo String Quartet, which has served on the faculty of the Yale School of Music since 1976, and embarks on its final tour as a Quartet.

• Star faculty members Ettore Causa, Peter Frankl, Ani Kavafian, Ole Akahoshi and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Aaron Jay Kernis celebrate the birth of Mozart.

• Richard Strauss’ Metamorphosen is paired with the world premiere of a Yale commission by alumnus Matthew Barnson, also for 23 strings, capped by Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings.

• Composer and former Yale faculty member Paul Hindemith is feted on the 50th anniversary of his death by pianist Boris Berman and members of the Yale Philharmonia, with a program that features some of his lesser-known high-spirited early works.

David Shifrin, artistic director of the series, notes: “The Yale School of Music is proud of its rich musical history, its high level of performance, ?and its success in nurturing young musical talent. The 2012–2013 Yale in New York concert series showcases all of these virtues in one of the great musical centers of the world.”

Shifrin continues: “We look to the past in honoring the great composer and teacher Paul Hindemith on the fiftieth anniversary of his passing; we celebrate today in presenting works by faculty member Aaron Jay Kernis and recent alumnus Matthew Barnson; and in saying farewell to our longtime quartet in residence, the Tokyo, we also look to the future through their legacy of mentoring the musicians of tomorrow.”
