Festival Napa Valley: Premiere Series – Pied Piper Fantasy

Friday July 27 | 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

1030 Main St.
Napa, CA 94559

American composer John Corigliano will be here when the formidable Russian flutist Maxim Rubtsov premieres a new arrangement of Corigliano’s Pied Piper Fantasy with members of the Russian National Orchestra. This beguiling 1993 concerto is based partly on Robert Browning’s classic tale, “The Pied Piper of Hamelin.”

Corigliano says of Maxim Rubtsov, “He’s the perfect Pied Piper. With his movie star looks and charisma, and his magnificent playing and acting of the part, the legendary piper becomes alive for all to see.” This new arrangement is by the versatile composer and conductor Andrey Rubstov. The world premiere of Andrey Rubtsov’s Concertanta, written for wind quintet and strings, rounds out today’s program.

Venue: Napa Valley Opera House

Stately yet understated, historic yet rejuvenating, the Napa Valley Opera House has been one of Napa’s most important cultural icons since 1880. On the Second Floor of the Napa Valley Opera House is the beautifully restored JaM Cellars Ballroom at the Margrit Mondavi Theatre which hosts an array of concerts and community events.
