Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

Daniel Epstein, pianist; Michael F. Tietz, conductor. Program Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) Concerto Grosso TWV 54:D3 (1716) Antonio Rosetti (17501-1792) Symphony in D Major, La Chasse (1786) Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) Piano Concerto No. 2 in Bb Major, Op. 83 (1881) About the Program Georg Philipp Telemann was a Baroque composer and multi-instrumentalist. His music incorporates several national styles (French, Italian, German) and is even at times influenced by Polish popular music. He remained at the forefront of all new musical tendencies and his music is an important link between the late Baroque and early Classical styles. Francesco Antonio Rosetti was a classical era composer and double bass player, and was a contemporary of Haydn and Mozart. He is best known today for his horn concertos. Rosetti is also known for writing the Requiem (1776) which was played at a memorial for Mozart in December 1791. The Piano Concerto No. 2 in B♭ major, Op. 83, by Johannes Brahms is separated by a gap of 22 years from his first piano concerto. Brahms began work on the piece in 1878 and completed it in 1881 while in Pressbaum near Vienna. It is dedicated to his teacher, Eduard Marxsen. The public premiere of the concerto was given in Budapest, with Brahms as soloist, and was an immediate success.  He proceeded to perform the piece in many cities across Europe.

The suite consists of folk song arrangements originally written for piano, and was transcribed for flute and piano. Philippe Gaubert was a French musician who was a distinguished performer on the flute, a respected conductor, and a composer, primarily for the flute. He became one of the most prominent French musicians between the two World Wars. After a prominent career as a flautist with the Paris Opéra, he was appointed in 1919, at the age of forty, the Principal conductor of the Paris Opéra and Principal conductor of the Orchestre de la Société des Concerts du Conservatoire. Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach, was a German Classical period musician and composer, the fifth child and second (surviving) son of Johann Sebastian Bach. He was an influential composer working at a time of transition between his father's baroque style and the classical and romantic styles that followed it. Through the later half of the 18th century, the reputation of Bach stood very high. Haydn and Beethoven admired him and "avidly" collected his music. Georges Bizet was a composer of the Romantic Era. Best known for his operas in a career cut short by his early death, Bizet achieved few successes before his final work, Carmen, which has become one of the most popular and frequently performed works in the entire opera repertoire.

Notable compositions include his song cycle Das Marienleben (1923), Der Schwanendreher for viola and orchestra (1935), and opera Mathis der Maler (1938).

Play | Henry V: Shakespeare from the Mobile Unit


Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead? Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

Tour | Dark Side of the High Line Tour


The skeletal remains of the High Line’s elevated tracks set the perfect scene for a spooky evening. Join Free Tours by Foot for a journey to the creepier side of New York City’s most unique park. On this tour you’ll hear tales of the strange eccentric who lived below the tracks and saved them from demise, the curse of a West Side Cowboy who fell to his death from the elevated track, and the children who haunt the street formerly known as Death Avenue. If the moon hangs right perhaps you’ll witness the spectacle of a ghostly ship floating down the Hudson River; is it the long forgotten crew of Henry Hudson’s Half-Moon warning sailors not to go to sea? Or is it Captain Kidd protecting the treasure he buried on Liberty Island? Venture at your own risk through the dark side of High Line.
