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.

Gallery Talk | Memory Palaces: Inside the Collection of Audrey B. Heckler: Exhibition Tour

Heckler is emblematic of the growth of the field of self-taught art in the United States, which manifests a strong interest for African American artists, a consistent attention on American classics, a curiosity for European art brut, and a search for international discoveries. For the last twenty-seven years, Heckler has surrounded herself with excellent examples by the most significant artists associated to this art niche, among them Emery Blagdon, Aloïse Corbaz, William Edmondson, August Klett, Augustin Lesage, Martín Ramírez, Thornton Dial, and Anna Zemánková.

Tour | Bloomingdale Neighborhood Walking Tour


Explore the history of this part of Upper West Side with local historian Jim Mackin. While it is still technically part of the Upper West Side, Manhattan's Bloomingdale District takes its name from its original Dutch settlers. Located between West 96th and West 110th Streets, the Hudson River and Broadway, The Bloomingdale District is an almost-forgotten enclave (and name) in the Upper West Side. Perhaps named for the old Dutch village of Bloemendaal ("valley of flowers"), this neighborhood was once home to the Bloomingdale Insane Asylum. It is likely that the name fell out of disuse to avoid association with the facility. But now, the neighborhood is distinguished enough from the Upper West Side to the south, and Manhattan Valley to the east to warrant its own name - one that hearkens back to its roots, and befitting a scenic, almost "bucolic" city neighborhood.

Author Reading | Brooklyn: The Once and Future City

He recounts the creation of places familiar and forgotten, built and never realized, bringing life to the individuals whose dreams, visions, rackets, and schemes forged the city we know today. Campanella takes us through Brooklyn’s history as homeland of the Lenape and its transformation by Dutch colonists into "a dense slaveholding region." See how Frederick Law Olmsted created Prospect Park and witness Brooklyn’s emergence as a playland of racetracks and amusement parks.

Talk | From the Fords Theater to 855 West End Avenue: The Story of the Marvelous Maggie Mitchell and the Building Where She Lived


Caitlin Hawke, long time Bloomingdale resident, will tell the story of the St. Andoche, a building constructed for beloved Civil War actor Maggie Mitchell who lived there for two decades until her death at the age of 81 in 1918. In the mid 1800s, Mitchell’s fame was second only to actor Edwin Booth, brother of John Wilkes Booth. Her obituary in The New York Times described  her as “known to playgoers of another generation as one of the most famous of American actresses”.  Although Mitchell’s story has been largely forgotten, the eight-story colonial revival St. Andoche still stands proud on the southwest corner of West 102nd Street. Hawke’s illustrated talk will present the story of both the actress and “her” building, including the details of the actor's extraordinary career and how the building got its unusual name.

Book Club | Science Fiction Book Club: The Three-Body Problem


Published in China in 2006 and newly translated by award-winning Chinese-American author Ken Liu, Cixin Liu's  novel is the first installment of a trilogy that asks one of the oldest questions in SF: What would it mean for the human race to come in contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence? From there, though, it transcends expectation — not to mention borders. Reading about these developments, I thought of Liu Cixin, China’s most popular science-fiction writer. Liu is fifty-one years old and has written thirteen books. Until very recently, he worked as a software engineer at a power plant in Shanxi. In China, he is about as famous as William Gibson in the United States; he’s often compared to Arthur C. Clarke, whom he cites as an influence. His most popular book, “The Three-Body Problem,” has just been translated into English by the American sci-fi writer Ken Liu, and in China it’s being made into a movie, along with its sequels. (If you Google it, beware: there are some big plot twists that you don’t want spoiled.) Liu Cixin’s writing evokes the thrill of exploration and the beauty of scale. “In my imagination,” he told me, in an e-mail translated by Ken Liu, “abstract concepts like the distance marked by a light-year or the diameter of the universe become concrete images that inspire awe.” In his novels, a black hole with the mass of twelve billion suns is the sort of thing that Chinese engineers might build. They’d do it a billion years from now, after China’s spaceships have spread throughout the universe. (The New Yorker)
