Quad City Youth Symphony Orchestra alumna Saeunn Thorsteinsdottir recently made her debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic where the LA Times praised her for her "emotional intensity." On September 15, Thorsteinsdottir will be bringing this same emotional intensity back to the Quad Cities as she performs Rachmaninoff's Sonata for Piano and Cello and other selected works. Since the time her career burgeoned in the Quad City Youth Symphony Orchestra, Thorsteinsdottir has garnered numerous top prizes in international competitions, including the 2008 Naumburg Competition in New York and the Antonio Janigro Competition in Zagreb, Coatia.

 

Thorsteinsdottir will be performing with pianist Benjamin Loeb. Recently appointed Executive Director of the Quad City Symphony Orchestra, this will be Loeb's first appearance on a QCSO concert. As a pianist, Benjamin Loeb has been praised by the Boston Globe: "[His] vigorous, cogent playing signaled the kind of equally weighted partnership, plus competition, plus mutual quest, etc. that [makes] this music live." His concerts have taken him around to the world to major venues and on radio and TV in New York City, San Francisco, Dallas, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Berlin, Seoul, Shanghai, Wuhan, Guangzhou, Panama City, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, and tours across the United States. He has performed for Community Concerts and has been featured as Artist-in-Residence on NPR's Performance Today with violinist Livia Sohn.

 

In addition to the Rachmaninoff Sonata, the duo will be performing other works including a world premiere from local Composer William Campbell. Campbell's Green Fire Variations for cello and piano is music about the energy within wild things. The title uses words borrowed from writer and conservationist Aldo Leopold: "We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes...I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters' paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view." (Sand County Almanac)

 

This first Signature Series concert will be in Wallenberg Hall at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 15. Get your tickets today for this very exciting start to the 2013-14 Signature Series at the QCSO box office, by calling 563.322.QCSO (7276), or by clicking here.

TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA ANNOUNCES FINAL PERFORMANCES OF CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ROCK OPERA "THE LOST CHRISTMAS EVE"

2013 WINTER TOUR PLAYING ARENAS NATIONWIDE

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12 | 7:30pm
iWireless Center

Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) will celebrate their first 15 years of touring with an encore and final performance of their multi-platinum rock opera, "The Lost Christmas Eve." TSO's 2013 Winter Tour will begin on November 13th, playing over 100 shows in 67 cities across North America, presented by Hallmark Channel.

Live Nation is proud to welcome TSO when they return to the Quad Cities for a spectacular show at the iWireless Center on Thursday, December 12 at 7:30pm. Tickets go on-sale Friday, September 6.

TSO, whose phenomena has grown year after year, has played over 1,500 shows for more than 10 million fans in the past fifteen years, and quietly became one of the world's biggest arena rock acts. The unprecedented fan driven growth is a testament to TSO founder Paul O'Neill's vision of "Rock Theater," the perfect amalgamation of Broadway storytelling with the spectacle of rock, delighting audiences of all ages year after year.

For one final year, audiences will get to experience the modern Charles Dickens-like classic, "The Lost Christmas Eve." Following the 2012 premiere of this acclaimed rock opera, critics were raving, calling it "...a must see for any music lover" , "...a rock 'n' roll holiday celebration worth seeing !" and an "unrivaled spectacle of sight and sound." "The Lost Christmas Eve" features a diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, R&B, and theatrical-styled music, with the story taking you on a journey into the "Capra-esque" world of TSO creator / producer, Paul O'Neill. The critically acclaimed rock opera encompasses a rundown hotel, an old toy store, a blues bar, a Gothic cathedral, and their respective inhabitants all intertwined during a single enchanted Christmas Eve in New York City. "The Lost Christmas Eve", performed in its entirety for the final time, will feature the hit single "Wizards in Winter" as well as longtime crowd favorites, "Christmas Nights in Blue" and "Siberian Sleigh Ride." It will be followed by songs from last years EP release from Lava/Republic, "Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night)", classics from TSO's debut album, "Christmas Eve & Other Stories" and the rest of the heralded catalogue of rock operas.

While off the road, TSO is constantly stockpiling new projects in their Rock Theater arsenal, including the rock operas "Gutter Ballet and the New York City Blues Express," "Letters from the Labyrinth" and "Romanov: When Kings Must Whisper", an epic story set amidst the Bolshevik Revolution.

Since their debut in 1996, TSO has defied the rules of an ever-changing music industry being regarded as a mix of The Who's "Tommy", Andrew Lloyd Weber's musicals, and Pink Floyd's expansive light show.. Year after year, the group has ranked in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and attendance, according to Pollstar magazine. Having played live to over one million fans each year TSO saw a 15% increase in sales alone in 2012, transforming them into a year round tradition that's here to stay.

Tickets start as low as $32.50!

Tickets go on sale Friday, September 13 at 10am at livenation.com, the iWireless Center box office, Ticketmaster.com, and charge by phone at 800-745-3000. Applicable fees may apply.
