Theofanidis - Rainbow Body
Korngold - Concerto for Cello and Orchestra
Owen Young, cello
Shostakovich - Symphony No. 5
“Soul and Redemption” - a musical exploration of those very ideas: from the ethereal sonorities of “Rainbow Body” to the magnificent 5th Symphony of Shostakovich, a powerful musical statement intended as a quest for redemption in the eyes of the Soviet regime.
And the program features BSO cellist, Owen Young – a musician of our times as comfortable on stage with James Taylor as in the great traditional repertoire of the BSO, Owen brings to the stage passion, charisma and talent in Korngold’s wonderful cello concerto.
Cellist Owen Young joined the BSO in August 1991. A frequent collaborator in chamber music concerts and festivals, he has also appeared as concerto soloist with numerous orchestras. He has appeared in the Tanglewood, Aspen, Banff, Davos, Sunflower, Gateway, Brevard, and St. Barth's music festivals and is a founding member of the innovative chamber ensemble Innuendo. Mr. Young's performances have been broadcast on National Public Radio, WQED in Pittsburgh, WITF in Harrisburg, and WGBH in Boston. He has performed frequently with singer/songwriter James Taylor, including the nationally televised concert "James Taylor Live at the Beacon Theatre" in New York City. Mr. Young was formerly on the faculties of the Boston Conservatory, the New England Conservatory Extension Division, and the Longy School of Music; is currently on the faculty of Berklee College of Music; and is active in Project STEP (String Training and Education Program for students of color). From 1991 to 1996 he was a Harvard-appointed resident tutor and director of concerts in Dunster House at Harvard University. His teachers included Elinor Osborn, Michael Grebanier, Anne Martindale Williams, and Aldo Parisot. Mr. Young holds both bachelor's and master's degrees from Yale University. He was a Tanglewood Music Center Fellow in 1986 and 1987. After winning an Orchestra Fellowship in 1987, he played with the Atlanta Symphony in 1988 and with the Boston Symphony in 1988-89. He was a member of the New Haven Symphony in 1986-87 and of the Pittsburgh Symphony from 1989 until he joined the BSO in 1991.
