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 Histories, Museums, and the Landscape of Memory in Brazil


Violent experiences of slavery shape both Brazil and the United States, thus in these new societies the trajectories and agency of Black women and men were decisive in defining the course of these countries’ national histories. And yet, Black histories are silenced or diminished in historiography and memory institutions, such as museums, despite the efforts of many social actors who demand the recognition of Black agency in history and memory. As a part of a broader movement within national cultures, that also transcend national borders, the Afro-Brazil Museum, created in São Paulo in 2004, and the National Museum of African American History and Culture, opened in Washington in 2016, represent efforts in asserting a place for Black histories in their respective landscapes of memory. Speaker Marcelo Abreu teaches the theory of history, history didactics, and museum studies. His research interests include the history of commemorations, history of regionalism and nationalism, the popularization of the past, and museum studies.

Each day there appears to be some news story about cyberattacks, security breaches, phishing scams, or allegations of election hacking. This exposure translates into an ever increasing demand for qualified professionals as the potential for the number of jobs is expected to reach 2 million in 2019. Theodore Henderson shows you how to get started and how to expand your career in this exciting and well-compensated professional area, even if you are not a technical person.

Discussion | Planning La Nueva Ciudad in Guayaquil, Ecuador: The Rehabilitation of the Guayaquil Airport


In 1920 Guayaquil, Ecuador was a relatively small city in South America of 30 square kilometers and a population of 258,000. Today at 215 square kilometers, Guayaquil is a sprawling metropolis of 2.29 million. The city suffers from many classic challenges seen around the world: informal communities, urban sprawl, lack of adequate public services and transit. This explosive growth enveloped the city’s airport (240 hectares) which is now being relocated outside the city center. This lecture reviews the city’s ambitious plan to rehabilitate this massive lot at the geographical heart of the city. We will also consider questions such as: What has the city learned from others around the globe? Can they set themselves on a sustainable path for the future? Can they reconcile the challenges of the present day with a vision for a better life for the city and its people? The people of Guayaquil do not merely want to become on par with the best urbanizations in the developed world—they aim to become a showpiece for global development and to create the city of their dreams.

Discussion | Rape Culture and Sexual Violence in the Arts

Author Reading | On Thomas Merton: Celebrating a Modern Thinker


From the best-selling novelist and memoirist Mary Gordon, a deeply personal view of her discovery of the celebrated modern monk and thinker through his writings. This is a probing, candid exploration of the man who became the face and voice of mid-twentieth-century American Catholicism. Approaching Merton “writer to writer,” Gordon illuminates his life and work through his letters, journals, autobiography, and fiction. Pope Francis has celebrated Merton as “a man of dialogue,” and here Gordon shows that the dialogue was as much internal as external—an unending conversation, and at times a heated conflict, between Merton the monk and Merton the writer. Rich with excerpts from Merton’s own writing, On Thomas Merton produces an intimate portrait of a man who “lived life in all its imperfectability, reaching toward it in exaltation, pulling back in anguish, but insisting on the primacy of his praise as a man of God.” Mary Gordon is the author of eight novels, including There Your Heart Lies, The Company of Women, and The Love of My Youth; six works of nonfiction, including Joan of Arc: A Life and the memoirs The Shadow Man and Circling My Mother; and three collections of short fiction, including The Stories of Mary Gordon, which was awarded the Story Prize. She has received many other honors, including a Lila Wallace–Reader’s Digest Writers’ Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and an Academy Award for Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. She teaches at Barnard College and lives in New York City.

Lecture | Dante and the Power of Satire


Dante is one of the greatest satirists of all time. His satire challenged and reshaped moral, legal, and linguistic boundaries. Popes, kings and members of Italy's most powerful families are placed in his upside-down world. Yet, he managed to get away with it. How did he achieve that? How did he manage to justify the use of a language so violent, and so offensive? Speaker Ambrogio Camozzi Pistoja is Assistant Professor in Romance Languages and Literatures (Italian) at Harvard. He studies the literary, visual and criminal history of insults in Roman and medieval Italian societies.

Rachel Carmody is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University.

Classical Music | The Winter Road: A Slavic Celebration


Stolyarov, a Russian-born American composer, conductor, singer, and educator, presents The Winter Road, based on the eponymous poem by Alexander Pushkin. The piece, sung in Russian, tells the story of a lonely traveler on a cold, quiet, moonlit road. The traveler, struggling forward through the darkness and the frost, cherishes his recollections of love and home, both of which are far away in a distant land. Scott Hill and Carlos Boltes, who form the celebrated Alturas Duo, join the Barnard-Columbia Chamber Singers to bring a specially commissioned work by Andrey Stolyarov to life.
