The 2013-2014 season marks Orpheus Chamber Orchestra's 41st year of making internationally acclaimed music while reinventing the way the world thinks about collaboration, outreach, and democratic leadership. With over 70 albums, including the Grammy® Award-winning Shadow Dances: Stravinsky Miniatures, associations with the leading contemporary soloists, and 39 commissioned works as part of their history, Orpheus continues to grow this season, with innovative projects and new musical adventures around the globe. By performing without a conductor and integrating musicians into virtually every facet of the organization, Orpheus empowers its members and infuses performances with unparalleled energy.

Orpheus’ four-concert season at Carnegie Hall in 2013-14 explores the history of the concerto. Featuring soloists such as pianist Brad Mehldau, clarinetist Martin Fröst, pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii, and violinist Christian Tetzlaff, Orpheus demonstrates the continuing impact that virtuoso soloists working with sensitive orchestras can have. The first concert of the season features the United States premiere of Mr. Mehldau’s new arrangement of Variations on a Melancholy Theme in a commission for Orpheus. Marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of Irving Fine, Orpheus has programmed his Serious Song: A Lament for String Orchestra for their second Carnegie Hall concert of the season. In their first collaboration, Orpheus welcomes young Japanese pianist and 2009 Van Cliburn Competition winner Mr. Tsujii to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, Emperor for their third concert. The final Carnegie Hall concert of the season features an all-Hungarian program highlighting the country’s musical traditions with a performance of Joseph Joachim’s rarely-heard Violin Concerto No. 2 with Mr. Tetzlaff.

In addition to its Carnegie Hall concerts, Orpheus will travel to Japan on a 10-city tour with Mr. Tsujii. They will also tour with the pianist to Florida for three concerts in January. Orpheus will perform as orchestra-in-residence at Colombia’s Festival Internacional de Musica with four concerts in January, and will embark on a five-city tour of the United States with Japanese violinist Ryu Goto. Members of Orpheus will also perform Michel van der Aa’s Up-close at the Lincoln Center White Light Festival in October with cellist Kaori Yamagami.

The Orpheus Process™, an original method that places democracy at the center of artistic execution, has been the focus of studies at Harvard and Stanford, and of leadership seminars at Morgan Stanley and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital, among others. On and off the stage, Orpheus provides learning opportunities for over 1,500 New York City public school students each year. The Orpheus Institute offers musicians, university students, and business leaders experiential training in collective leadership through the Orpheus Process™. With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the program is expanding nationwide; the 2011-12 season featured the launch of a year-long residency at the University of Maryland. During the 2012-13 season, the Orpheus Institute was in residence at Interlochen Arts Academy, University of Maryland, Dartmouth College, Muhlenberg College, University of Connecticut, and Metro State University. As artists-in-residence, Orpheus visited the campuses to facilitate coaching sessions, rehearsals, and master classes as well as performances. In the coming season Orpheus will continue to share its leadership methods and performance practices through open rehearsals and training programs as the ensemble provides its audiences with the highest level musicianship and programming.
