7:30p | ( front row table seating)

Over the past three decades, saxophonist, Walter Beasley, has artfully and dynamically redefined the phrase “musical Renaissance Man” for the modern generation. Considered by fans and critics alike as the “heir to Grover Washington, Jr.’s Throne,” Beasley is the acclaimed saxophonist, vocalist, educator, and entrepreneur of the decade. As the highest selling full-time Professor / Recording Artist in history, the Boston-based musician has long mastered an exhilarating high wire act of balancing a successful career as a contemporary jazz recording artist and performer with an equally thriving presence in the field of music education.

A leading alto and soprano saxophonist and prominent vocalist all the same, Beasley is hailed by fans for his thrilling performances along the East Coast and throughout the U.S. and Caribbean. Notable performances include the all-star tour To Grover, With Love, performing alongside Chuck Loeb, Buddy Williams and Andy Snitzer and performing as the headlining act for the 2011 Playboy Jazz Festival.

As to the release of his latest CD/DVD project, “Live In The Club,” Beasley’s chart-topping single, “Groove In You,” debuted on the Groove Jazz Chart at #29, climbing to Top 20 on the Billboard/R&R Chart, Radiowave, SmoothJazz.com, & Mediabase, earning a spot in the Top 10 on the Indie Chart. Other notable works by Beasley include his self-titled albums, Sax Meditations and Live in the Groove, both released through his Affable Publishing, as well as Free Your Mind (Heads Up), whose presence earned Beasley the 2009 Jazz Awards, and Backatcha (Shanachie Entertainment / Affable), featuring his hot single, “Lovely Day.” During 2011, Backatcha rose to #10 on Billboard Top 50, with his single “The Call” debuting at 30 on Billboard Smooth Jazz chart and #3 Most Added in June 2011.

Since 2008, Beasley continues to thrive at the forefront of digital media and communication by offering consultation services to independent sax artists via Skype.  Students are worldwide and of all ages and skill levels. He extends his influence to the younger generation by sharing his experiences and educational expertise through “Walter Beasley Sax Lessons” on YouTube and through his educational app offerings on iTunes and Google. Beasley also creates instructional DVDs for young players who are not able to afford a traditional music education. Projects include 14 Steps To Maximizing your Performance, which is currently available for download on his official website. His other best selling videos released through his Affable Publishing include Sound Production for the Saxophone, Hip Hop Improvisation, Circular Breathing and Performance Workshop.

A native of El Centro, CA, Beasley found his calling in the 1970’s after his Aunt gave him his first Grover Washington, Jr. record at the age of nine. During his early teens, Beasley played sax and sang in various bands throughout Southern California. In the following years, Beasley attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music and graduated alongside such prominent classmates as saxophonist, Branford Marsalis, and vocalist, Rachelle Ferrell. Upon graduation, Beasley accepted a teaching position at Berklee where he continues to share his musical genius with students, nearly 30 years later.

UnderScore Friday Evening – Schuller, Mozart and Strauss

UnderScore Friday Evening – Schuller, Mozart and Strauss
Event on 2015-04-01 20:00:00

The legendary, Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Gunther Schuller's recent orchestral work Dreamscape begins this program. According to Schuller, this sparkling, witty, symphony-like work, commissioned by the BSO for Tanglewood's 75th anniversary and premiered by the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra in 2012, came to him wholly in a dream-hence its title. Its personal aspects and use of quotation make it a neat companion for Richard Strauss's novelistic tone poem Ein Heldenleben ("A Heroic Life"), which references several of the composer's earlier pieces in an amazingly virtuosic orchestral display. In between, the acclaimed Mozartian Richard Goode joins Maestro Nelsons and the orchestra for Mozart's elegantly soft-spoken final piano concerto. View biography in full page >

Andris Nelsons begins his tenure as the BSO's Ray and Maria Stata Music Director with the 2014-15 season, during which he leads the orchestra in ten programs at Symphony Hall, repeating three of them at New York's Carnegie Hall in April. Mr. Nelsons made his Boston Symphony debut in March 2011, conducting Mahler's Symphony No. 9 at Carnegie Hall. He made his Tanglewood debut in July 2012, leading both the BSO and the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra as part of Tanglewood's 75th Anniversary Gala (a concert subsequently issued on DVD and Blu-ray, and telecast nationwide on PBS), following that the next day with a BSO program of Stravinsky and Brahms. His Symphony Hall and BSO subscription series debut followed in January 2013, and at Tanglewood in 2014 he led three concerts with the BSO, as well as a special Tanglewood Gala featuring both the BSO and the TMC Orchestra. His appointment as the BSO's music director cements his reputation as one of the most renowned conductors on the international scene today, a distinguished name on both the opera and concert podiums. He made his first appearances as the BSO's music director designate in October 2013 with a subscription program of Wagner, Mozart, and Brahms, and returned to Symphony Hall in March 2014 for a concert performance of Strauss's Salome. He is the fifteenth music director in the history of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Maestro Nelsons has been critically acclaimed as music director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra since assuming that post in 2008; he remains at the helm of that orchestra until summer 2015. With the CBSO he undertakes major tours worldwide, including regular appearances at such summer festivals as the Lucerne Festival, BBC Proms, and Berlin Festival. Together they have toured the major European concert halls, including Vienna's Musikverein, the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, the Gasteig in Munich, and Madrid's Auditorio Nacional de Música. Mr. Nelsons made his debut in Japan on tour with the Vienna Philharmonic and returned to tour Japan and the Far East with the CBSO in November 2013. Over the next few seasons he will continue collaborations with the Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam, the Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Philharmonia Orchestra. He is a regular guest at the Royal Opera House-Covent Garden, the Vienna State Opera, and New York's Metropolitan Opera. In summer 2014 he returned to the Bayreuth Festival to conduct Lohengrin, in a production directed by Hans Neuenfels, which Mr. Nelsons premiered at Bayreuth in 2010.

Andris Nelsons and the CBSO continue their recording collaboration with Orfeo International as they work toward releasing all of Tchaikovsky's orchestral works and a majority of works by Richard Strauss, including a particularly acclaimed account of Strauss's Ein Heldenleben. Most of Mr. Nelsons' recordings have been recognized with the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik. In October 2011 he received the prestigious ECHO Klassik of the German Phono Academy in the category "Conductor of the Year" for his CBSO recording of Stravinsky's Firebird and Symphony of Psalms. For audiovisual recordings, he has an exclusive agreement with Unitel GmbH, the most recent release being a Dvořák disc entitled "From the New World" with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, released on DVD and Blu-ray in June 2013. He is also the subject of a recent DVD from Orfeo, a documentary film entitled "Andris Nelsons: Genius on Fire."

Born in Riga in 1978 into a family of musicians, Andris Nelsons began his career as a trumpeter in the Latvian National Opera Orchestra before studying conducting. He was principal conductor of Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie in Herford, Germany, from 2006 to 2009 and music director of Latvian National Opera from 2003 to 2007. View biography in full page >

Richard Goode has been hailed for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth and expressiveness, and has been acknowledged worldwide as one of today's leading interpreters of Classical and Romantic music.  In regular performances with the major orchestras, recitals in the world's music capitals, and through his extensive and acclaimed Nonesuch recordings, he has won a large and devoted following. 

Gramophone magazine recently captured the essence of what makes Richard Goode such an original and compelling artist: ''Every time we hear him, he impresses us as better than we remembered, surprising us, surpassing our expectations and communicating perceptions that stay in the mind."
In the 2013-2014 season, Mr. Goode will appear as soloist with such orchestras as the New York Philharmonic with David Zinman, the Chicago Symphony with Mark Elder, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin with Herbert Blomstedt, and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra with Peter Oundjian, with whom he will also appear in Toronto,  Ottawa and Montreal with the Toronto Symphony.  His always compelling recitals will be heard at Carnegie Hall in New York, in London, in Paris,  at the Aldeburgh Festival and on leading concert and university series around the world. In addition, he will perform a chamber music concert with members of Boston Symphony Orchestra,and will hold master classes at major conservatories and music schools on both sides of the ocean.

Among the highlights of the 2012-2013 season were recitals in which, for the first time in his career, Mr. Goode performed the last three Beethoven Sonatas in one program, drawing capacity audiences and raves in such cities as New York, London and Berlin.  The New York Times in reviewing his Carnegie Hall performance, hailed his interpretations as "majestic, profound readings……Mr. Goode's playing throughout was organic and inspired, the noble, introspective themes unfolding with a simplicity that rendered them all the more moving."   Recent seasons have also included performances with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra led by Fabio Luisi at Carnegie Hall, with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, with Orpheus, on tour and at Carnegie Hall playing the Schumann Concerto,  and with the Boston Symphony in Boston, and on a west coast tour.  

An exclusive Nonesuch recording artist, Goode has made more than two dozen recordings over the years, ranging from solo and chamber works to lieder and concertos. His latest recording of the five Beethoven concertos with the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Iván Fischer was released in 2009 to exceptional critical acclaim, described as "a landmark recording" by the Financial Times and nominated for a Grammy award. His 10-CD set of the complete Beethoven sonatas cycle, the first-ever by an American-born pianist, was nominated for a Grammy and has been ranked among the most distinguished recordings of this repertoire. Other recording highlights include a series of Bach Partitas, a duo recording with Dawn Upshaw and Mozart piano concertos with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. 

A native of New York, Richard Goode studied with Elvira Szigeti and Claude Frank, with Nadia Reisenberg at the Mannes College of Music, and with Rudolf Serkin at the Curtis Institute.  His numerous prizes over the years include the Young Concert Artists Award, First Prize in the Clara Haskil Competition, the Avery Fisher Prize, and a Grammy award for his recording of the Brahms Sonatas with clarinetist Richard Stoltzman. His first public performances of the complete cycle of Beethoven sonatas at Kansas City's Folly Theater and at New York's 92Y in 1987-88, brought him to international attention being hailed by the New York Times as "among the season's most important and memorable events."  It was later performed with great success at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall in 1994 and 1995. 

Mr. Goode has served, together with Mitsuko Uchida,  as co-Artistic Director of the Marlboro Music School and Festival in Marlboro, Vermont from 1999 through 2013.  Participating, initially, at the age of 14, at what the New Yorker magazine recently described as "the classical world's most coveted retreat,"  he has made a notable contribution to this unique community over the 28 summers he has spent there.  He is married to the violinist Marcia Weinfeld, and, when the Goodes are not on tour, they and their collection of some 5,000 volumes live in New York City.
