    From Mostly Mozart: “Mark Morris and MMF: A Fertile Collaboration”

    Mark Morris and Mostly Mozart—the names not only make an alliterative pairing, but together they have been the source of numerous enriching performances. Since the Mark Morris Dance Group first appeared as part of the 2002 Mostly Mozart Festival, the troupe has become its unofficial resident dance company. Given Morris’s impressive breadth of musical knowledge and sophisticated insight into the scores to which he sets his dances—what other choreographer has also served as a conductor for his company’s performances—an ongoing connection with a music festival seems logical, almost inevitable.

    Often the festival has provided a grand stage for a full-evening Morris creation, such as his 1988 masterwork L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato, which introduced Morris’s work to Mostly Mozart Festival audiences and made two return appearances. In 2006, to mark the 250th anniversary of its namesake’s birth, Mostly Mozart offered the world premiere of Morris’s stirring and bountiful Mozart Dances, set to two piano concertos framing a piano sonata. The work returned in 2007 and again in 2016, when Mostly Mozart celebrated its 50th anniversary. In 2012 the company performed— and Morris himself conducted—his acclaimed 1989 production of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.

    But in between these grander works, the festival has also welcomed more intimate Morris programs of dances set to chamber music scores. A 2011 program exemplified the range of Morris’s musical interest and curiosity, combining dances set to Stravinsky, Hummel, and Satie.

    Morris’s presence at Mostly Mozart is primarily due to his ongoing collaboration with Jane Moss, Ehrenkranz Artistic Director, who has also included Morris programs in Lincoln Center’s annual White Light Festival. “Jane has supported me and my company very strongly for many years,” Morris notes. “We fit in with Mostly Mozart because of the way I work choreo-musically.”

    For this year’s festival, Moss offered Morris an opportunity to choreograph a new work to Schubert’s Quintet in A major (“Trout”), one of the composer’s best-known and most admired chamber music works—and one that Morris had been interested in “for many decades.” The Trout, for 11 dancers, becomes the second Morris work to have its world premiere at Mostly Mozart.

    However familiar Morris may have thought he was with the 1819 five-movement work, he was surprised at what he heard as he began choreographing. “I thought I knew the ‘Trout’ perfectly, and I don’t. It’s not at all the way you think it’s going to be, based on sonata form in chamber music from that period. It’s supposed to follow a certain set of rules that we all take for granted, but it doesn’t do what you expect. It’s sort of stream of consciousness, in a fabulous way. It’s surprisingly asymmetrical and rule-breaking.

    “The themes and progressions, along with melodicles—as Lou Harrison called little fragments of melody—are played around with throughout the length of the piece. So when the theme and variations arrive in the fourth movement, you’ve heard all of that material, and you may not even know the song—but there it is,” Morris says. “I wanted to present this mix of music, and dances from different periods of my work, including some old stuff we don’t do very often. The Monteverdi I’ve been wanting to bring back for a long time.”

    Together with Moss, Morris shaped the program that is anchored by The Trout premiere, representing quite a range of Morris’s career—the three works span nearly 30 years—and contrasting musical forces. I Don’t Want to Love (1996) is set to seven Monteverdi madrigals, performed by four vocalists with harpsichord, theorbo, lute, and cello. Love Song Waltzes (1989) is set to Brahms’s Liebeslieder-Walzer, Op. 52, for a quartet of vocalists and piano four hands.

    The Program
    John Adams: The Chairman Dances
    Mozart: Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major, K.216
    Beethoven: Symphony No. 1

    An instant star at Tanglewood last year and recently signed to Deutsche Grammophon, the intensely musical 17-year-old violinist Daniel Lozakovich will perform Mozart’s charming third violin concerto, composed when Mozart, too, was just a teenager. The program begins and ends with two revolutionary works separated by a couple of centuries—John Adams’s gleefully syncopated Chairman Dances and Beethoven’s buoyant First Symphony, offering ecstatic glimpses of what was to come.

    John Adams’s groundbreaking work Grand Pianola Music is the centerpiece of this spirited celebration of the piano and technology from the ever-inventive International Contemporary Ensemble. Dating from 1982, Adams’s work for two pianos, voices, and chamber ensemble uses live performers to recreate tape-delayed loops to astonishing effect. In the first half of the program, Courtney Bryan’s Songs of Laughing, Smiling, and Crying creates conversation between the piano and recordings plucked from YouTube. And in a newly revised version of George Lewis’s epic chamber piece Voyager, AI technology allows the piano to take up the conversation on its own, a sentient automaton among human wind players.

    How do we bear witness to a thing our bodies seem built to ignore? In Ashley Fure’s immersive music-theater piece, created with her architect brother Adam Fure and the International Contemporary Ensemble, 24 subwoofer speakers emit sound too low for humans to hear, creating a subsonic sense of ecological anxiety that ripples around the audience. Under a dense canopy of sculpted matter, tones are “made tactile, objects made audible, noise made beautiful” (New York Times). Drama is steered away from the human, time is stretched to a geologic scale, and seven live performers act as wordless harbingers of a consciousness not limited to the living.

    Michael Pisaro: A wave and waves (2007)

    Echoing the environmental themes and communal experience of John Luther Adams’s In the Name of the Earth, Michael Pisaro’s 75-minute piece embeds audience members in a grid of 100 performers, where they are slowly submerged in an ocean of sound. Isolated, imperceptibly soft noises—sandpaper on stone, seeds falling on glass, bowed bells—are layered into powerful waves of sound adding to the immersive nature of the experience. A work of monumental scale, presented with uncommon immediacy, a wave and waves melds microscopic moments of friction, gravity, and vibration into a single, pulsing organism.

    The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) is an artist collective that is transforming the way music is created and experienced. As performer, curator, and educator, ICE explores how new music intersects with communities across the world. The ensemble’s 35 members are featured as soloists, chamber musicians, commissioners, and collaborators with the foremost musical artists of our time. Works by emerging composers have anchored ICE’s programming since its founding in 2001, and the group’s recordings and digital platforms highlight the many voices that weave music’s present.

    A recipient of the American Music Center’s Trailblazer Award and the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, ICE was also named the 2014 Musical America Ensemble of the Year. The group currently serves as artists-in-residence at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ Mostly Mozart Festival, and previously led a five-year residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. ICE was featured at the Ojai Music Festival from 2015 to 2017, and at recent festivals abroad such as gmem-CNCM-marseille and Vértice at Cultura UNAM, Mexico City. Other performance stages have included the Park Avenue Armory, The Stone, ice floes at Greenland’s Diskotek Sessions, and boats on the Amazon River.

    New initiatives include OpenICE, made possible with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which offers free concerts and related programming wherever ICE performs, and enables a working process with composers to unfold in public settings. DigitICE, a free online library of over 350 streaming videos, catalogues the ensemble’s performances. ICE’s First Page program is a commissioning consortium that fosters close collaborations between performers, composers, and listeners as new music is developed. EntICE, a side-by-side education program, places ICE musicians within youth orchestras as they premiere new commissioned works together; inaugural EntICE partners include Youth Orchestra Los Angeles and The People’s Music School in Chicago. Summer activities include Ensemble Evolution at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, in which young professionals perform with ICE and attend workshops on topics from interpretation to concert production. Yamaha Artist Services New York is the exclusive piano provider for ICE. Read more at iceorg.org.

    The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) is an artist collective that is transforming the way music is created and experienced. As performer, curator, and educator, ICE explores how new music intersects with communities across the world. The ensemble’s 35 members are featured as soloists, chamber musicians, commissioners, and collaborators with the foremost musical artists of our time. Works by emerging composers have anchored ICE’s programming since its founding in 2001, and the group’s recordings and digital platforms highlight the many voices that weave music’s present.

    A recipient of the American Music Center’s Trailblazer Award and the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, ICE was also named the 2014 Musical America Ensemble of the Year. The group currently serves as artists-in-residence at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ Mostly Mozart Festival, and previously led a five-year residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. ICE was featured at the Ojai Music Festival from 2015 to 2017, and at recent festivals abroad such as gmem-CNCM-marseille and Vértice at Cultura UNAM, Mexico City. Other performance stages have included the Park Avenue Armory, The Stone, ice floes at Greenland’s Diskotek Sessions, and boats on the Amazon River.

    New initiatives include OpenICE, made possible with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which offers free concerts and related programming wherever ICE performs, and enables a working process with composers to unfold in public settings. DigitICE, a free online library of over 350 streaming videos, catalogues the ensemble’s performances. ICE’s First Page program is a commissioning consortium that fosters close collaborations between performers, composers, and listeners as new music is developed. EntICE, a side-by-side education program, places ICE musicians within youth orchestras as they premiere new commissioned works together; inaugural EntICE partners include Youth Orchestra Los Angeles and The People’s Music School in Chicago. Summer activities include Ensemble Evolution at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, in which young professionals perform with ICE and attend workshops on topics from interpretation to concert production. Yamaha Artist Services New York is the exclusive piano provider for ICE. Read more at iceorg.org.

    The Program
    Bernstein: Overture to Candide
    Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 17 in G major, K.453
    Mozart: Adagio and Rondo in C minor for glass harmonica, flute, oboe, viola, and cello, K.617
    Gershwin: An American in Paris (New critical edition, edited by Mark Clague)

    For this exhilarating evening inspired by fable and the French-American connection, maestro Louis Langrée leads the Festival Orchestra in Bernstein’s Voltaire-inspired overture and a new edition of Gershwin’s score to An American in Paris. The ultimate American Mozart pianist Emanuel Ax ignites the famous melodies of one of Mozart’s finest piano concertos (also Bernstein’s favorite “party” piece). And a rarely performed Mozart chamber work showcases the glass harmonica, invented by another famous American in Paris: Benjamin Franklin.

    “Always thoughtful, lyrical, lustrous.”

    Washington Post on Emanuel Ax

    “There are few surer guarantees of quality in classical music than the combination of Mr. Ax and Mozart.”

    “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.
