Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Discussion | Low-Carbon Electricity: Lessons from India and China


Electricity is the largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions globally that cause climate change, and the heart of economic development and social improvement for the world’s largest economies, including India and China. Tomorrow’s systems will need to be much larger to support continued economic growth and the demand that comes with it, but they will also need to be substantially less carbon-intensive to meet our climate goals, with renewables replacing coal. This is a panel discussion that brings together senior experts to provide their insights into this challenge of expanding access to electricity while also lowering carbon emissions, with a focus on lessons that can be drawn from India and China. The panel will comprise Ajay Mathur, Director General of TERI (India), and Deborah Seligsohn, Assistant Professor of Political Science, Villanova University.

Talk | Upper West Side Catholics: The History of Ascension Church on West 107th Street


Monsignor Thomas J. Shelley, author of the recently published book Upper West Side Catholics: Liberal Catholicism in a Conservative Archdiocese and professor emeritus of Fordham, will tell the story of this well-known upper west side church. Shelley sees Ascension as a microcosm of the history of the Catholic Church in the city, a flourishing multi-ethnic bilingual parish and a vital part of the Bloomingdale neighborhood. The church, which began as a small German parish in 1858 and then  developed into a large Irish parish, suffered a precipitous decline from the 60s to the 80s, but was rescued from near-extinction by an influx of Puerto Rican and Dominican Catholics.
