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 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Lecture | Black and White with Red Sauce: Spaghetti alla Tarantino


Quentin Tarantino’s indebtedness to the spaghetti western and its masters, Sergio Corbucci and Sergio Leone in particular, is well-known. Elements of that genre appear in Django Unchained (2012) and The Hateful Eight (2015). The American director’s penchant for violence and gratuitous bloodshed has resulted in criticism at home and abroad, but his films have stimulated debate on issues such as racism and the legacy of slavery in the United States. As Tarantino shifts direction from the western frontier to the south and back to the west, he remains true to the ideological origins of the spaghetti western by combining trenchant political commentary with entertainment. Race is a main ingredient in both these “macaroni” films. A lecture by Mary Ann McDonald Carolan, Visiting Professor

Author Reading | They Fought Alone: The True Story of the Starr Brothers, British Secret Agents in Nazi-Occupied France


From Charles Glass, the bestselling author of Americans in Paris and The Deserters, comes the astounding story of Britain's Special Operations Executive, one of World War II's most important secret fighting forces. As far as the public knew, Britain's Special Operations Executive did not exist. After the defeat of the French Army and Britain's retreat from the Continent in June 1940, Prime Minister Winston Churchill created the top-secret espionage operation to "set Europe ablaze." The agents infiltrated Nazi-occupied territory, parachuting behind enemy lines and hiding in plain sight, quietly but forcefully recruiting, training, and arming local French résistants to attack the German war machine. SOE would not only change the course of the war, but the nature of combat itself. Of the many brave men and women conscripted, two Anglo-American recruits, the Starr brothers, stood out to become legendary figures to the guerillas, assassins, and saboteurs they led.
