DEBUSSY Clair de Lune  
DEBUSSY Images: Gigues, Ibéria, Rondes de printemps

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor, presenter
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

The afternoon program begins with Maestro Gittleman leading the Dayton Philharmonic performing Claude Debussy’s distinctive and lovely Clair de Lune. Following, Neal escorts you through an intimate look at Claude Debussy’s work, focusing on his masterpiece, Images.

This three-movement work sets out to capture the essence of England (Gigues), Spain (Ibéria), and France (Rondes de printemps).

Images begins with Gigues, a jig. The tone and tempo, however, are not what a listener would consider to be a sprightly dance. Instead, the piece reflects on “The Streets,” a poem by Paul Verlaine, which is anything but sprightly: “So skilfully would she proceed To make a lover's bare heart bleed, That it was beautiful indeed! Let's dance the jig!” And so the poem continues, the narrator’s heart broken and Debussy’s tone poem following suit.

Images moves next to Ibéria, perhaps the best-known piece from the work. This movement is divided into three parts describing the Streets and Roadsides, Perfumed Darkness, and The Morning of a Festival.

Images concludes with images of France in Rondes de printemps (Dances in Spring). This movement artfully evokes May Day and the celebratory mood of the season.

Don't miss this brilliant musical excursion.

GINA PATTERSON choreographer – You Are Here
JESSICA LANG choreographer – From Foreign Lands and People
KAREN RUSSO BURKE choreographer – World Premiere ballet
SUSANNE PAYNE choreographer – Dreams of Flight

Since the beginning of time, when the natural movement of body to music evolved into its own art form, women have shaped the face of dance in the most sensuous and exhilarating of ways. Now, Dayton Ballet honors women of dance  with a program that shines a spotlight on the work of four innovative female choreographers.

The program opens with You Are Here, by internationally acclaimed Gina Patterson. This engaging work is an emotional ballet that works to convey the pulling sense of loss and human determination. Cincinnati.com says of the 2013 premiere and its choreographer “…forceful and swirling, it is as if she has somehow harnessed breath itself; gasping, panting, sighing. It is an endless series of surprises.”  

Since 1999, choreographer Jessica Lang has gained worldwide fame working with ballet companies across the nation. Six years ago she established her own ballet company in New York City which has quickly become one of the most exciting companies on today’s dance scene. Dayton Ballet brings her exciting work entitled From Foreign Lands and People to our stage.

Dayton Ballet is known internationally as "The Company of Premieres," and in keeping with this title, Dayton Ballet Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke premieres a brand-new all-female ballet, choreographed with each dancer’s individual strengths in mind.

The program closes with a work created by Dayton area native Susanne Payne called Dreams of Flight, which received its world premiere with Dayton Ballet in 2014. She is a graduate of Wright State University and winner of Dayton Ballet's 2009 "New Music for New Dance" competition.

What could the films Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Saving Private Ryan, the Harry Potter series, Jurassic Park, and Schindler’s List possibly have in common? You guessed it, their musical scores were all composed by the prolific John Williams. This April, the Dayton Philharmonic has planned a special evening of music celebrating Williams’ work.

From 1980 to 1993, John Williams was principal conductor for the Boston Pops. However, he is probably best known for his work as a composer having written some of the most popular and most recognizable movie scores, winning 5 Academy Awards, 17 Grammys, 2 Emmys, and 5 BAFTA awards.

Come join the Dayton Philharmonic for adventure, magic, thrills, and drama . . . brought to you through the music of John Williams!
