Classical Music | French Baroque Chamber Music


French baroque chamber music performed on period instruments. Baroque music is a period or style of Western art music composed from approximately 1600 to 1750. This era followed the Renaissance music era, and was followed in turn by the Classical era. Baroque music forms a major portion of the "classical music" canon, and is now widely studied, performed, and listened to. Key composers of the Baroque era include Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, George Frideric Handel, Claudio Monteverdi, Domenico Scarlatti, Alessandro Scarlatti, Henry Purcell, Georg Philipp Telemann, Jean-Baptiste Lully, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Arcangelo Corelli, Francois Couperin, and Giovanni Battista Pergolesi.

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.

Lecture | Main Drivers of Brazilian Income Distribution Changes


After three decades of persistently high-income inequality, from 2001 Brazil experienced a downward inequality trend followed by rising mean income growth. Both movements lasted until 2014 according to household surveys. This work describes Brazilian income distribution trends and their close determinants using a vast array of data sets and empirical methodologies to fill gaps found in the literature. It attempts to provide a more comprehensive picture looking jointly at inequality, mean, and social welfare growth rates. Speaker Marcelo Neri is the Director of FGV Social at Getulio Vargas Foundation.

Concert | In the Salon of Madame Brillon: Concert and Conversation


The Raritan Players, led by Rebecca Cypess, invite listeners into the musical world of Anne-Louise Brillon de Jouy (1744-1824), a French composer and keyboardist whose reputation extended throughout Europe and across the Atlantic. Her salon was one of the most fashionable and glittering in Paris. Her salon was a destination for leading professional musicians including Luigi Boccherini, Johann Schobert, and Charles Burney. In the centuries since her death, Madame Brillon--like so many women--has been all but erased from musical history. Using her manuscripts at the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia, as well as works dedicated to her by some of Europe's leading composers, this program explores Brillon's tastes and the music that she created and inspired. For this concert and discussion, Rebecca Cypess draws on her book-in-progress about Women and Musical Salons in the Enlightenment.

Concert | Voices and Piano


Peter Ablinger and Eric Wubbels will perform selections from Peter Ablinger's ground-breaking Voices and Piano series. The highlight of the evening is the world premiere performance of the newest addition to the series, a work using the voice of American performance artist Diamanda Galás. Voices and Piano is an extensive cycle of pieces for recorded voice - usually a well-known celebrity - and piano. Begun in 1998, Ablinger's cycle continues to be a work in progress and will ultimately include about 80 pieces/voices (around four hours of music). The voices are taken from speeches, interviews or readings, and rather than an accompaniment, the piano part serves as a commentary on the spoken text. In addition to the premiere of Diamanda Galás, the program will include pieces with the voices of Agnes Martin, Mila Haugová, Ezra Pound, Nina Simone, Setsuko Hara, Hanna Schygulla, Cecil Taylor, and Roman Opalka. Peter Ablinger has been guest conductor of 'Klangforum Wien', 'United Berlin' and the 'Insel Musik Ensemble’. Since 1990 Peter Ablinger has worked as a freelance musician. 2012 he became a member of the Academy of Arts Berlin. 2012-2017 he was research professor at the University of Huddersfield. Eric Wubbels is a composer and pianist, and a Co-Director of the Wet Ink Ensemble. As a performer, he has given U.S. and world premieres of works by major figures such as Peter Ablinger, Richard Barrett, Beat Furrer, George Lewis, and Mathias Spahlinger.
