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 | Youth Migration, Education, and Mega Cities: Promise and Peril in Karachi


Pushed by climate change, conflict, and dreams of a better life, many rural Pakistani youth migrate to urban areas to seek an education. In Karachi, these youth add pressure to already strained government and educational services, potentially increasing urban volatility. We know little about youths’ experiences in these urban environments. Dana Burde of NYU discusses youth experiences with the education system in Karachi, seeking to understand better why youth leave home, what their hopes are for their new urban lives, and how they try to address the challenges they face. Understanding these youths’ stories is a crucial first step toward systematically enhancing education services for youth in mega cities, easing the strains of migration, and strengthening the promise youth hold in these contexts.

Author Reading | Victory City: A History of New York and New Yorkers During World War II


While World War II created and destroyed nations, powered economic growth, and brought the rise and fall of fascism, it also created the conditions for New York City to emerge as a new global capital. A city of servicemen, politicians, and saboteurs; Nazi, Fascist, and Communist sympathizers; war protesters and conscientious objectors; gangsters and profiteers; poets and painters, atomic scientists and spies. In Victory City: A History of New York and New Yorkers During World War II, John Strausbaugh tells the story of New York City’s war years and provides readers with new insights into the greatest city on earth during a particularly transformative time in human history. John Strausbaugh, author of City of Sedition and The Village , has been writing about the culture and history of New York City for a quarter of a century.

Lecture | Ariadne and the Minotaur: Symbolic and Literal Labyrinth in Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend


This talk explores Naples as the architectonic setting of Elena Ferrante’s novel My Brilliant Friend through the lens of classical mythology and urban sociology. It examines the city – and more specifically, the neighborhood or the rione – as a symbolic and literal labyrinth, an architectural manifestation of the patriarchal order which structures and oppresses the feminine body and psyche. The talk follows Ferrante’s two female protagonists, Lila and Elena, as they negotiate the labyrinth of the rione and face the monster-Minotaur of their childhood, thereby articulating new ways of resisting male-dominated urban space.

Author Reading | The Hum of the World: A Philosophy on Listening


The Hum of the World is an invitation to contemplate what would happen if we heard the world as attentively as we see it. Balancing big ideas with playful wit and lyrical prose, Lawrence Kramer’s poetic book identifies the role of sound in Western experience as the primary medium in which the presence and persistence of life acquire tangible form. The positive experience of aliveness is not merely in accord with sound, but inaccessible, even inconceivable, without it. Lawrence Kramer, Distinguished Professor of English and Music at Fordham University, is an award-winning composer and the author of fifteen previous books, including The Thought of Music, winner of the 2017 ASACP Virgil Thomson Award for Outstanding Music Criticism.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: in case you should forget to sweep before sunset


Featuring multiple lens-based works as well a new photographic installation, the exhibition by Zalika Azim explores notions of home, memory, migration, and remigration. Referring to southern lore, the title in particular, pulls from a common superstition which suggests that “the home should not be swept past sunset.” For believers, doing so puts one at risk of sweeping away the spirits of ancestors who may provide protection to the family home. in case you should forget to sweep before sunset is not only an engagement with ancestral knowledges and southern sensibilities, but is also a play on expectations of time, space, and narration.

Lecture | An Aftertaste of Dread: Writer Cornell Woolrich in Fiction and Film


This talk explores the distinctive literary techniques and moods of Cornell Woolrich, giving emphasis to the sense of dread that pervades his fiction and can also be found in other expressions of cultural modernity. The talk will try to explain why Woolrich was so frequently adapted into film, television, and radio during what we retrospectively think of as the noir decades of the 1940s and 50s. It will also provide notes on seven films (plus one television show) that are among the best of the adaptations. Speaker James Naremore is Chancellors’ Professor Emeritus at Indiana University and the author of the award winning More Than Night: Film Noir in Its Contexts.

Classical Music | Haydn’s Immortal The Creation


First performed in 1799, Haydn’s immortal The Creation captures the lavish drama of God’s creation of the universe, from the earliest verses of the Bible where chaos is separated into light, earth, and air to the first happy hours of Adam and Eve in the Garden. Inspired by the Book of Genesis, the Book of Psalms, and Milton’s Paradise Lost, Haydn’s most famous and enduring masterwork has enthralled audiences for centuries.
