January: Focus! Goes Latin, Berlin does Bruckner and More

Gail Wein
December 28, 2016

In the dark and chilly days of January, there are some festivals to liven us up.

What better way than to start out with six free concerts? Juilliard's Focus! 2017 presents "Our Southern Neighbors: The Music of Latin America," with programs January 20 - 27. The New Juilliard Ensemble, Julliard Orchestra, chamber ensembles and soloists perform 20th and 21st century works by a compendium of composers from Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina Brazil and more. Most of the concerts are at Juilliard, the final one is at Alice Tully Hall. Free admission, tickets are required, available at Julliard's box office, website and at the door.

Staatskapelle Berlin comes to Carnegie Hall for an extended run January 19 - 29. Each of the nine concerts features a Bruckner Symphony and a concerto by Mozart. Daniel Barenboim conducts and is piano soloist in the Mozart concerti. This is a Big Deal. Tickets via Carnegie's box office and website.

Bundle up and trundle down to the Brooklyn waterfront for stunning views of Manhattan from a barge-turned-concert hall at the Bargemusic Here and Now Winter Festival, January 4, 5 and 6. The program features world premieres of works by some of New York's most beloved living composers, including David Del Tredici, David Leisner and Harold Meltzer. Good to know: the venue is indoors and is comfortably heated. Tickets at Bargemusic's website.

The Prototype Festival - a whirlwind of provocative opera and music-theatre - runs January 5 - 15. Six productions include the New York premieres of David Lang's Anatomy Theater and Missy Mazzoli's Breaking The Waves. Venues include HERE, BRIC and FIAF. Tickets available through Prototype's website.

Also running this month is New York City Opera's Candide by Leonard Bernstein. I thoroughly enjoyed NYCO's 2008 production, and I'm glad to know they have revived this fanciful work. Harold Prince directs. Performances on selected dates January 6 - 15 at Jazz at Lincoln Center; tickets at Jazz at Lincoln Center's box office and website.
