    “Indisputably the most musical choreographer alive” (New York Times), Mark Morris illuminates music by Monteverdi, Brahms, and Schubert with his kinetic, witty, poetic dancemaking. The program opens with two dances that reveal the intricacies of romantic love—1989’s buoyant Love Song Waltzes set to Brahms’s Liebeslieder-Walzer for voice and piano four hands, and 1996’s I Don’t Want to Love, a revelatory exploration of some of Monteverdi’s most lovelorn madrigals. The performance culminates with a highly anticipated world premiere that brings new life and lift to Schubert’s enchanting chamber-music masterpiece, the “Trout” Quintet.

    “Works that are among the peaks of American dance (and thus world dance) and that have taken dance expression where it has not been before.”

    New York Times

    “The most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical.”

    New York Times

    “Morris’ patterns have the power to make you hear the music the way he wants you to, and that is never predictable.”

    Los Angeles Times

    Performance length: One hour and 50 minutes, including intermission

    Available Light, a “work of blazing formal beauty” (New York Times) created through a historic collaboration between three iconic artists, returns “brighter than ever” (Los Angeles Times). Not seen in New York since 1983, the work offers prismatic views of the intersection between dance, music, and architecture. Renowned postmodern choreographer Lucinda Childs arranges and rearranges her dancers in the three-dimensional space of Frank Gehry’s stark, split-level set, creating kaleidoscopic textures that echo the restless phase shifts, ambient washes, and fractured fanfares of John Adams’s work for synthesizer and recorded brass, Light Over Water.

    NOVEMBER AT BAC: FRAMING TIME
    Co-presented by Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival

    Framing Time is a quietly thrilling meditation on music, light, and movement centered on Morton Feldman’s 1981 solo piano piece Triadic Memories. Feldman’s spare, mystical piano piece–a work the composer described as the “biggest butterfly in captivity”–merges with an intricate color and light interplay, joined by dance and sculptural elements. Vividly rendered by pianist Pedja Muzijevic, the shifting colors and elastic tempos of Feldman’s painterly music are transformed into acute, poetic movement by Spanish choreographer and dancer Cesc Gelabert, with set and lighting design by Burke Brown.

Located in the Hudson Yards neighborhood of Manhattan, BAC comprises a total of 20,000 square feet, including the 238-seat Jerome Robbins Theater, which opened in 2010; the Howard Gilman Performance Space, a black box performance space seating 136 people; four column-free studios; and office space. BAC serves approximately 500 artists and more than 22,000 audience members annually through presentations and artist residencies.

    Sun Ra Arkestra live score to Space Is the Place
    Lean On Me: José James Celebrates Bill Withers
    Samora Pinderhughes: The Transformations Suite

    “The music is different here. The vibrations are different here.” So opens the 1972 Afrofuturist sci-fi film Space Is the Place by jazz cult-icon Sun Ra. But these words could also apply to (Le) Poisson Rouge, the Bleecker Street club known for its diverse, open-minded programming.

    (Le) Poisson Rouge


    (Le) Poisson Rouge Event Tortoise 3-16-2016

    This cosmic evening, part of LPR’s 10th-anniversary celebrations, builds up to the Sun Ra Arkestra’s live performance of the score to the film, in which Black people create their own paradise on Saturn, transported there by music. Getting us to that place tonight are the beloved songs of Bill Withers (Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone, Just the Two of Us) performed by Blue Note jazz and R&B artist José James. Jazz pianist and composer Samora Pinderhughes opens with The Transformations Suite, a musical examination of the radical history of resistance within communities of the African diaspora.

    Tickets- you will need to access the full article for tickets, as there is no link available.

    Following a series of spellbinding international debuts, Sol Gabetta has seen a meteoric rise to her current status as a leading cello virtuoso. After captivating audiences with her “rich musical personality” (New York Times) at Mostly Mozart in 2015, the charismatic soloist returns to Lincoln Center for a recital steeped in her trademark “wit, aristocratic poise and elegance” (Herald, U.K.) with Chopin’s melodic marvel, the Cello Sonata in G minor, at its heart.

    The Program
    Beethoven: Cello Sonata in F major, Op. 5, No. 1
    Adagio sostenuto—Allegro
    Rondo: Allegro vivace

    Britten: Sonata in C major, Op. 65
    Dialogo
    Scherzo-pizzicato

    Marcia

    Chopin: Sonata in G minor, Op. 65
    Allegro moderato
    Scherzo: Allegro con brio
    Largo
    Finale: Allegro

    Chopin: Grand Duo on themes from Meyerbeer’s Robert le diable

    “Gabetta’s dramatic sweep—her bow high up above her head on the final note—struck me like an arrow pointing to the future.”

    Bachtrack

    “[Gabetta] commands the sort of technique that unravels even the fiercest knot with apparently nonchalant savoir-faire.”

    From Lincoln Center: “Must-See Free Events at Lincoln Center in May” 

    Lincoln Center, NYC, USA

    Each spring for more than two decades, schools from throughout the US present their bands, jazz ensembles, choirs, choruses and orchestras on Lincoln Center’s outdoor plazas as part of Lincoln Center’s Young Music Makers series. Performances by the school groups are free to the public and usually occur around lunchtime, when the plazas are crowded with visitors and Lincoln Center neighbors. Lincoln Center provides the venue, chairs, and electricity if needed. Schools bring their own instruments, music stands, and amplifiers. Schools from outside the NY-NJ-CT tri-state region are eligible for this program if they schedule a tour of the Lincoln Center campus. The tour component is optional for schools within the NY-NJ-CT tri-state area. We are eager to expand this opportunity to the many developing musicians of New York City and hope to hear from more NYC music educators soon!

    Imarhan at the David Rubenstein Atrium
    Led by Sadam, the youngest member of the trailblazing band Tinariwen, Imarhan is one of the best emerging Tuareg bands in Algeria. Reflecting both the members’ cultural and generational background, the band’s dry guitar riffs, pop melodies, and pan-African rhythms draw on traditional Tuareg music, African ballads, and the modern pop and rock music they heard growing up. The band’s “ear-opening” debut album (Guardian, U.K.) set out to dismantle preconceived notions about Tuareg music. This new wave of Tuareg musicians finds a calm and passionate soul in sumptuous slow burners, and compositions of uncommon complexity.

    Pagan sacrifice! Dissonance! A riot! The premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet The Rite of Spring by Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes on May 29, 1913, is perhaps the most famous onstage scandal in the history of the performing arts. Was the riot spontaneous or a planned anti-Russian protest? Were people arrested? Was someone actually challenged to a duel? Discover the true story behind the mythical performance with New Yorker writer and host Adam Gopnik and special guests, including dancer and the Founder/Director of The Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU Jennifer Homans.

    ¡VAYA! 63: Gerardo Contino y Los Habaneros at the David Rubenstein Atrium
    Selected as the “Best Cuban Band” by New York Latin Magazine in 2017 and “Best Band in Manhattan” by WNYC in 2017, the explosive Los Habaneros are a force to behold onstage—and for tonight’s party, on the dance floor. Mixing musical styles from their home in Cuba with the diversity of sounds they encountered when they made New York City their home, Los Habaneros transcend traditional musical genres to create a real fusion that provokes fans into hip-shaking abandon. The band is made up of a young generation of Havana-trained musicians, including director and singer Gerardo Contino, artistic director and pianist Axel Tosca Laugart, and percussionist Yusnier Sanchez Bustamante. The band’s first album, Somos Latinos (2013), was released to very high critical acclaim. It was produced by Latin Grammy-nominated Luisito Quintero, and included five-time Grammy Award–winning bassist John Benitez. Their second album, Los Habaneros, will be released in 2018.

    Telling Care Café: Veterans’ Journeys Home at the David Rubenstein Atrium
    What does it mean to come home after military service? Does military service and war change the idea of home forever? This storytelling event presents a poignant exploration of these and other questions that resonate with many veterans. In addition to a talk by Dr. Max Rayneard, co-creator of The Telling Project, veterans share their military experiences—whether in Vietnam, Iraq, or on the home front—and how their service continues to shape them. The discussions will include issues ranging from mental health to raising families to finding one’s purpose.

    Zeshan B at the David Rubenstein Atrium
    Tempestuous soul arias, urban love dramas, Memphis blues, and civil rights anthems are interpreted with an Indo-Pakistani feel during this evening of music by Zeshan B. Born to Muslim Indian immigrants in Chicago, Zeshan uses his powerful voice—singing in English, Urdu, and Punjabi—to tell tales of instability, ambiguity, loss, injustice, unrequited love, urban despair, and youthful ecstasy. His debut album Vetted, produced by legendary soul arranger Lester Snell and recorded in Memphis with a wrecking crew of Stax Records sidemen, was released in 2017. He has opened for Mos Def, A Tribe Called Quest, and Rakim, and performed at venues across the world, including the White House at the invitation of President Obama.
