Prof Avner Dorman conducts CityMusic’s opener in Cleveland
Associate Professor and Music Director of CityMusic, Avner Dorman recently conducted the Cleveland Chamber Orchestra in various concerts to begin their fourteenth concert season. The concerts featured a concerto by John Corigliano, one of the most highly regarded composers of our time. The piece, “The Red Violin”, can be described as neo-Romantic in its lyricism and orchestration, and features modern techniques like indeterminacy and disjointed tempi. Besides the compositional greatness of the piece, it was also a way for Professor Dorman to celebrate his own relationship with Corigliano. Corgiliano was one of Dorman’s professors at Juilliard and Dorman cites Corigliano’s teachings as making “all the difference in the world.” The season will continue with three more concert series, with Prof Dorman conducting the majority of them.
