A Global Tour with Cape Ann Symphony

Grisha Goryachev is renowned for his extraordinary musical sensitivity and technical virtuosity.

Thrill to music from Austria, Spain and Japan. Beethoven’s Fifth is possibly the world’s most well known symphony with its powerful four note opening. Rodrigo’s immediately recognizable and popular Concierto de Aranjuez put Rodrigo on the map as one of the world’s great 20th Century composers. It also helped make the classical guitar the respectable solo instrument it has become.

Koto’s Stormy and Calm Seas a new piece commissioned by the Cape Ann Symphony is a musical depiction of the ocean during a storm and the calm that comes afterwards.

Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Ensemble

Ezekiel’s Wheels is a dynamic young klezmer ensemble from the Boston area that is getting international recognition for their virtuosity and infectious energy.The quintet’s unique style was forged in the subway stations and farmers’ markets of Boston, where the informal setting and ever-changing audience created an ideal environment for musical experimentation. After playing these informal gigs for some time, Ezekiel’s Wheels entered the 2012 Boston Jewish Music Festival’s “Klezmer Idol” competition, winning first place and a recording session. Seven months later, with a brand new EP under their belt, they won both the jury-awarded City Winery Prize for best klezmer ensemble and the Audience Pick Award at the third biennial International Jewish Music Festival in Amsterdam. They continue to perform regularly across New England, occasionally around the United States, and every-so-often around the world.
