Tanglewood

Seiji Ozawa Hall - Lenox, MA - View Map

The Daniel Freed and Shirlee Cohen Freed Memorial Concert


Stefan Asbury leads the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra and Tanglewood Music Center Vocal Fellows in a fully staged performance of Bernstein's one-act opera  A Quiet Place, directed by Peter Kazaras.  Conceived as a sequel to his 1952 one-act opera Trouble in Tahiti (being performed July 12), and to be heard here in a recently created version for chamber ensemble, A Quiet Place-Bernstein's final work for the stage-was originally premiered in 1983 on a double bill with Trouble in Tahiti. Providing an intimate picture of family relationships, the story rejoins Sam from Trouble in Tahiti years later, following Dinah's unexpected death. Entering the picture are their son Junior, daughter Dede, and her husband (and Junior's former boyfriend) François. The final, closing scene for Sam and the three young people brings closure and hope to their lives.

For the grand finale of Lucerne’s Special Event Day, the ensemble of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY will be joined by several singers and a jazz trio. Why? Because the Academy students will perform with Maria Schneider, the First Lady of orchestral jazz. But don’t think of the traditional big band sound. Maria Schneider, who had significant experiences as assistant to Gil Evans before founding her own orchestra in 1992, widens the sonic spectrum of jazz through her expressive harmonic language and refined, chamber music-like arrangements. That will be demonstrated by the two multi-part works she will present in Lucerne. Inspired by poems of Ted Kooser and Carlos Drummond de Andrade, the CD Winter Morning Walks won three Grammy Awards in 2014 – including for the category Best Contemporary Classical Composition.

1:30 PM Performance: Rieko Aizawa, piano; Daedalus Quartet; César Delgado, tenor; Theo Lebow, tenor; Jesse Mills, violin; The Orchestra Now, conducted by Zachary Schwartzman; and others

Olin Hall

Kelly Newberry will sing selections from Arie Antiche and Quattro Liriche by Respighi

Giacomo Puccini (1858–1924)Salve Regina (before 1880); Giuseppe Tartini (1692–1770), Sonata, Op.6, No.1 (c.1731); selections from Arie antiche, edited and arranged by Alessandro Parisotti (1853–1913), and works by Claudio Monteverdi (1567–1643), edited by Gian Francesco Malipiero (1882–1973);Ottorino Respighi (1879–1936), from Quattro liriche (1920), and Antiche arie e danze, Suite No.1 (1917); Gian Francesco Malipiero (1882–1973), String Quartet No.3, "Cantari alla madrigalesca" (1931); Alfredo Casella (1883–1947), from Il pezzi infatile, Op.35 (1920);Luigi Dallapiccola (1904–75)Tartiniana No.1 (1951)

The vogue for unearthing music of bygone eras – spearheaded by Mendelssohn's Bach revival – found expression in Italy too. Straddling past and present, the vocal writing in Puccini's student composition Salve Regina anticipates his opera arias (indeed, he reused the hymn in Le Villi), while its organ accompaniment pays homage to Italy's glorious liturgical tradition. Alessandro Parisotti's anthology Arie antiche is primarily composed of Romanticized arrangements of 17th- and 18th-century song, but also includes "Se tu m'ami," which – while attributed to Baroque master Giovanni Pergolesi – appears to be his own original work. The musicologist behind the first complete edition of Claudio Monteverdi's oeuvre was Malipiero, who drew on the sophisticated polyphony of Italy's madrigal tradition in his own Third String Quartet. Another scholar of Italy's musical past was Respighi, who published editions of works by Monteverdi, Vivaldi and Benedetto Marcello, and who based the first orchestral suite of his own Ancient Airs and Dances on lute pieces by Vincenzo Galilei, father of Galileo, and other composers of the Italian Renaissance. Similarly, the fifth of Casella's II Pezzi infantili is specified as an homage to the five-finger exercises of Classical pedagogue Muzio Clementi, while Luigi Dallapiccola's fascination with the Baroque inspiredTartiniana No. 1, a violin concerto based on the music of Giuseppe Tartini.

8 PM Performance with commentary by Anna Celenza; with The Orchestra Now, conducted by James Bagwell; Blair McMillen, piano; and others

Sosnoff Theatre

Kelly Newberry will sing the popular Italian tunes Tornerai and Giovenezza.

Giacomo Puccini (1858–1924)Scossa elettrica (1899); Francesco Balilla Pratella (1880–1955), from La guerra (1913); Alfredo Casella (1883–1947), from Cinque Pezzi (1920); works by Luigi Russolo (1885–1947)Franco Casavola (1891–1955)Silvio Mix (1900–27)Zez Confrey (1895–1971), and others. With a screening of Nino Oxilia's film Rapsodia satanica (1917), score by Pietro Mascagni (1863–1945), performed live

The festival's second weekend opens with a concert featuring The Orchestra Now, among others. Glorifying modernity in an attempt to liberate Italy from the weight of her past, the Italian Futurist movement saw the rise of composers including Francesco PratellaFranco Casavola, and Luigi Russolo. Their music spanned a wide stylistic range, Pratella's betraying little sign of the radical views he espoused in print, while Russolo's – and the custom devices on which he performed it – introduced a truly original new aesthetic that brought everyday noises into the concert hall. The program will also include Puccini's Scossa elettrica, written for a celebration of scientistAlessandro Volta; his favorite jazz tune, Dumbell, by Zez Confrey; and selected popular songs of the day. To conclude the concert, Bard presents a rare screening of the silent film Rapsodia Satanica, a female spin on the Faust legend from Nino Oxilia, accompanied by a live performance of its original score, which marks the only film music by Pratella’s teacher, Mascagni.
