Festive Festivals

by Gail Wein
July 03, 2017

July in New York City brings a confluence of several major performing arts festivals: Mostly Mozart, the Lincoln Center Festival and International Keyboard Institute, as well as an abundance of free outdoor events.

Lincoln Center Festival runs July 10-30, and its typically eclectic offerings include a multi-disciplinary work, Cloud River Mountain. Composed by David Lang, Julia Wolfe and Michael Gordon (the Bang on a Can founders) and Lao Luo, it features the hotly touted vocalist Gong Linna singing in Manderin and English with the Bang on a Can All Stars in a performance that embraces music and poetry, East and West, acoustic and electric. July 14 and 15 at Gerald Lynch Theater. Also not to be missed at Lincoln Center Festival, on July 20-23 a trio of renowned ballet corps - Bolshoi Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet and New York City Ballet - split the bill to perform Balanchine's three-part work "Jewels". Then on July 26-30, the Bolshoi is in the spotlight performing Taming of the Shrew, accompanied by the New York City Ballet Orchestra performing the score by Dmitry Shostakovich.

Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival runs July 25 through August 20. With a half-century of seasons to its credit, the festival has a baseline of solidly crowd-pleasing programming, with a few surprises tossed in here and there. A couple of highlights early in the festival: Pianist Jeremy Denk joins the Festival Orchestra in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4, with Schubert's 5th Symphony also on the program (July 28 and 29), and Les Arts Florissants performs Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s sacred choral music (July 27).

Though I delight in referring to it by pronouncing its initials - "IKI" - the International Keyboard Institute and Festival brings two solid weeks of exceptional keyboard performances to Hunter College July 16-30. Highlights include recitals by Vladimir Feltsman (July 23), Steven Mayer (July 22) and Alon Goldstein (July 20).

There is plenty to celebrate outdoors as well, including two celebrated orchestras performing at a 112-year long free concert series: The Knights on July 11 and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra on July 18, and East Coast Chamber Orchestra on August 1.

See you at the concert!
