2:00pm Overture with Maestro Maull / 3:00pm concert

Join us for the Classical Overtures, held an hour prior to the concert, in-person in the Chase Room at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), 1 Center St, Newark, NJ. These interactive presentations are hosted by Maestro George Marriner Maull and are free to ticket holders. The Washington Post describes the artistry of Emanuel Ax as “thoughtful, lyrical, lustrous.” London’s Independent calls Leonidas Kavakos “a musician’s musician. Technically, there is nothing he cannot execute on this Stradivarius.”

I just listened to the first episode of this (Dvorak’s “New World” Symphony) and can’t believe how fortunate I was to run across this on Prime. I have heard Maull lecture many times before performances and now here he is right on my computer screen and with the clearest of visual aids. I promise if you listen to one of these you will understand a piece as never before. And, I have discovered from past experiences with his lectures that I always listen to any given piece with a greater connection. These “home” viewings of Maull’s lectures are such a gift! Highly recommended.
