ÜBERMENSCH (SUPERMAN)

Tom Hormel: The Legend of Bird Mountain, World Premiere

Korngold: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra

Tessa Lark, violin

Strauss: Also sprach Zarathustra

Ubermensch is a passionate and eclectic performance with a wide array of emotional energies that both energize and soothe the spirit. A masterful harmony of power, romance and sensuality, Ubermensch is an experience sure to leave you breathless. 

In addition to an exciting world premiere by contemporary composer Tom Hormel, Naumburg Competition winner, Tessa Lark, joins the Symphony to perform Korngold’s lush Violin Concerto on the 1683 “ex-Gingold” Stradivari violin. 

"Her combination of a rich, robust sound, even high in the register, technical control and phrasing that makes even the quickest presto seem unrushed, and a sense of surety seasoned with a distinctive personality, makes Lark stand out from America's talented pack of young virtuosos.  This is a special artist."  Milton Moore – The Day

All topped off with Richard Strauss’ most popular work in 21st century culture, the rumbling giant fanfare:  Also sprach Zarathustra. This 1896 orchestral work that sky rocketed him to fame was inspired by Nietzsche's philosophical novel of the same name and was featured in Stanley Kubrick's film, "2001: A Space Odyssey."

RECENT REVIEWS:

MUSICWEB INTERNATIONAL: "Recordings Of The Year 2013. My first chamber choice for the year... I’ve had a listen to a few alternatives…including Isaac Stern and Daniel Barenboim on Sony Classics and Lydia Mordkovitch and Gerhard Oppitz on Chandos, but this duo on Centaur pretty much ticks all the boxes”     

FANFARE MAGAZINE: "Cotik never indulges in violinistic brilliance at the expense of music, but he sounds consistently brilliant nevertheless…for those open to so thoughtful a violinist as Cotik, these readings should stand beside Pinchas Zukerman's readings on the shelf. Strongly recommended” “Cotik and Lin make Kreisler seem almost smarmy...Isabelle Faust almost mannered...and Julia Fischer...as though she's filed down the detail”

AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE: "Everyone who plays these works should hear these exemplary performances...you will never hear these Telemann Fantasias played so well. I enjoy the Piazzolla Tango Etudes more as played by Cotik than by anyone else."  
    
DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE: “exceptional... Piazzolla can be played differently than this, but provably not better.”
