GIFTED PIANIST ORLI SHAHAM JOINS ERIC JACOBSEN AND THE ORLANDO PHILHARMONIC TO CELEBRATE BERNSTEIN AND DVOŘÁK’S NEW WORLD

Celebrate the 100th Birthday of Leonard Bernstein, one of America’s most beloved composers

(Thursday, February 1, Orlando, Fla.) – One of today’s most gifted pianists, Orli Shaham, joins conductor Eric Jacobsen and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra to celebrate the 100th Birthday of one of America’s most beloved composers, Leonard Bernstein on Saturday, February 17 at 8 p.m. at the Bob Carr Theater, located at 401 West Livingston Street, Orlando, FL. 32801.

A consummate musician recognized for her grace, subtlety, and brilliance, Orli Shaham has established an impressive international reputation as one of today's most gifted pianists. She will perform Bernstein’s Symphony No. 2, “The Age of Anxiety” based on a Pulitzer Prize winning poem by W.H. Auden.

The concert concludes with one of the most popular of all symphonies, Symphony No. 9, also known as the “ From the New World” because Dvořák wrote it during his experience in the United States in the 1890’s.

Hailed by critics on four continents, Shaham is in demand for her prodigious skills and admired for her interpretations of both standard and modern repertoire. The New York Times called her a "brilliant pianist," The Chicago Tribune recently referred to her as “a first-rate Mozartean” in a performance with the Chicago Symphony, and London's Guardian said Shaham's playing at the Proms was "perfection."
Shaham has performed with major orchestras including the Los Angeles Philharmonic; Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, and Philadelphia Symphony Orchestras; and internationally with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Filarmonica della Scala, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and Orchestre National de France among many others.
