The brays and snores in classical music scores | Philadelphia Inquirer | 04/06/2010.

Classical music, endlessly cryptic, sometimes even goes over the heads of orchestral musicians, as Gerard McBurney found out. McBurney is creator of Beyond the Score, a musical exploration of individual scores with the help of texts, visuals, and the real thing played by an orchestra.

The Columbus Symphony will be performing a special concert Friday May 1st, featuring the innovative and accessible program concept, Beyond the Score.

MOZART: Beyond the Score®

Jean-Marie Zeitouni, conductor
Michael Chertock, piano

Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 27, K. 595

Proof that classical music remains a relevant art form in modern society, Beyond the Score® redefines the traditional orchestral concert experience. Listeners explore the historical and theoretical complexities of a single work through theater, narration and live musical example. The drama is accompanied by a carefully crafted presentation of animation and images pulled from museums and collections worldwide. When returning for the second half to hear the work in full, the interdisciplinary experience affords a new perspective of the repertoire, challenging notions and redefining the listening experience.
