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.

Opening Reception | Leo Yeni: An Artist's Paper Life


An exhibition of drawings from the internment camp, sketchbooks with notations on architecture, art history and decorative arts, sketches, paintings, family photographs and official papers. Leo Yeni was 23 years old in 1943, when Italy surrendered to the Allies and precipitated into chaos and a civil war. The journey that would eventually take him to New York along with thousands of refugees and survivors, begins in Milan where, as a young man, he studied at the Art Academy of Brera. He learned to love art and, in the nationalistic narrative of the Regime, learned that Art was Italian and rooted in the splendors of ancient Rome and, secondarily, ancient Greece.

Jazz | "Golden Era" Jazz by an 8-Member Czech Ensemble


In the ten years of their existence, Pilsner Jazz Band have managed to secure themselves a place on the Czech traditional jazz and swing scene. This eight-member orchestra from the city of Pilsen concentrates on the 'Golden Era' of jazz - dixieland and swing, but their eclectic repertoire also includes boogie-woogie, blues and Latin standard jazz. They receive regular invitations to both Czech and foreign festivals, but also regularly perform at regular concerts, weddings, corporate events, parties and other events. Their wide repertoire contains something for everyone - from the old dixieland pieces from the streets of New Orleans to hits from New York dance clubs by Glenn Miller or Duke Ellington, to pieces which have been underrated for decades. The female singer, accompanied by seven instrumentalists, appeals to the audience with both Czech and English language pieces.
