A New Year’s Resolution

Gail Wein
December 27, 2018

This year, I’m making a resolution to hear as much live music as possible. I like to make resolutions that are easy to keep.

New Yorkers can get a jump on 2019 concert-going with Clarion Choir’s performances of Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil (Vespers) at Church of the Resurrection on East 74th Street. Performances are at 5 pm on both December 31 and January 1, and include ancient Slavonic chants interspersed between Rachmaninoff's settings.

January is a good time to pay tribute to the old and the new. Brooklyn Art Song Society celebrates composer Ned Rorem’s 95th birthday on January 4 at Brooklyn Historical Society. Soprano Sarah Brailey, baritone Steven Eddy, bass-baritone Dashon Burton and others perform the American composer’s tuneful music. Mozart’s Symphony No. 33 and Piano Concerto No. 27 (Javier Perianes, piano) are on Orpheus Chamber Orchestra’s January 12 concert at Carnegie Hall, along with a new work by James Matheson.

Met Museum artist-in-residence Julia Bullock embodies the singer, activist and cultural icon Joséphine Baker at the Met Museum’s Great Hall on January 16 and 17. Poet Claudia Rankine and composer/percussionist Tyshawn Sorey created Perle Noire for Bullock. Theater director Peter Sellars staged the work, which will be performed by Bullock, Sorey and the new music collective International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE).

My Favorite New York Philharmonic Musician, Anthony McGill, is featured soloist with the Philharmonic. He performs Copland’s Clarinet Concerto on January 24, 25 and 26; Jaap van Zweden conducts. Julia Wolfe’s multi-media Fire in My Mouth, co-commissioned by the NY Philharmonic, receives its world premiere on this program. The tale of the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911, which killed over 100 young immigrant factory workers in New York City, is enhanced by video projections and the chamber choir The Crossing along with the Philharmonic.

Slightly less intense programs this month: The award-winning Argus String Quartet performs 21st century works in the beautiful environs of Wave Hill in Riverdale on January 13, and the young firebrands Stefan Jackiw, violin, and Conrad Tao, piano perform at 92Y on January 25.
