American cultural giant, artistic icon of the Beat Generation and 20th century musical titan David Amram will conduct his own Elegy for Violin and Orchestra, with Darvarova as the soloist. Amram's poignant and deeply elegiac poem of lyrical yearning is offered as a memorial for the dead for whom intervention comes too late. With this concert, Amram makes his first conducting appearance at Carnegie Hall in more than 50 years, when he was the New York Philharmonic's first Composer-in-Residence, appointed by Leonard Bernstein.
Maestro Amram reflects on the concert, "Beethoven for The Rohingya is not only a musical feast for those who participate and share what we love to do, but it also shows that in 2019, New York remains a place where we welcome refugees and immigrants. This concert celebrates the spirit of generosity, the hallmark of the great classical music, which continues to survive the test of time and inspires those who create, as Beethoven and Schiller did, for the immortal Ninth Symphony."
Music For Life International continues its decade-long tradition of global humanitarian concerts with Beethoven for The Rohingya, a benefit concert featuring Beethoven's monumental Ninth Symphony, presented in the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall on Monday, January 28, 2019. Beethoven for The Rohingya is an urgent call to the global community to raise awareness for the nearly 1 million Rohingya refugees fleeing what the United Nations have defined as genocidein Rakhine State in Myanmar. Refugees, who are seeking safety in Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and other nearby locations, are grossly lacking access to healthcare when it is needed most; net proceeds from this performance will benefit Doctors Without Borders/Médécins Sans Frontières (MSF)
