NY TIMES’ ARTS BEAT ON GERARD SCHWARZ’S FAREWELL SEASON AT SEATTLE SYMPHONY

New York Times

Gerard Schwarz will bow out after 26 years as music director of the Seattle Symphony with a bang. The orchestra said on Thursday that next season, his last, would open with Schwarz conducting a concert featuring his son Julian playing the world premiere of a cello concerto by Samuel Jones and a work by the conductor himself, “The Human Spirit.” The program also includes Schwarz’s own arrangement of a suite from “Der Rosenkavalier” by Strauss. And the 2010-11 season will close with a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “The Resurrection.”
