Can­ticum Novum Cham­ber Or­ches­tra and Cho­rus

Pasatiempo - - Onstage This Week -

of­fers a widerang­ing pro­gram at First Pres­by­te­rian Church at 8 p.m. Satur­day,

June 12, and 4 p.m. Sun­day, June 13, that cul­mi­nates in the First Pi­ano Con­certo by Dmitri Shostakovich. Fol­low­ing sev­eral mis­steps that landed the com­poser in hot wa­ter with the com­mis­sars, Shostakovich re­stored his stand­ing with this de­light­ful con­certo, filled with ref­er­ences to Bach, Haydn, and dance tunes. Here the soloist is Peter Vino­grade, a pro­fes­sor at the Man­hat­tan School of Mu­sic, who is noted as an in­ter­preter of Bach and of 20th-cen­tury scores — spe­cial­ties that in­ter­sect in this piece. The church is at 208 Grant Ave. Tick­ets are $30, chil­dren and stu­dents $15; call 988-1234.
