In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place at 10am and 11am.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Economics, psychology and neuroscience, among other disciplines, all have staked their claim to the study of decision-making. New technologies to examine human and animal brains alongside behavior — and the increased spatial and temporal resolution of those technologies in recent years — have brought these fields even closer together. Combining psychological and economic models with behavioral and neural correlates, Neuroeconomics is a burgeoning area of research that has grown exponentially in the past 15 years. Speaker Ernst Fehr is Professor of Economics at the University of Zurich.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Capitalism has shown remarkable resilience in the face of left-wing and social democratic assaults against it. It grew stronger during its confrontation with communism, co-opted liberals and social democrats (who, in the end managed to change themselves a lot more than they did capitalism), and grew almost invincible after the collapse of communism and the retreat of social democracy. Alas, today, globalised, financialised capitalism is faced down by a mortal enemy: capital and the manner in which the technologies it engenders pulls the rug from under capitalism’s feet, undermining the raison d’ etre of traditional corporations and nullifying the all-important labour employment contract.

Performers: Chieko Arake, Soprano Saxophone Cristiano Arata, Baroque Guitar Momoko Arima, Violin Giuseppe Buscemi, Guitar Paloma Chiner and Ami Walsh, Sopranos Giulio De Felice, Baroque Flute Pablo Garcia-Berlanga, Luowen Huang, Tamara Licheli, Julia Siciliano, Silvia Tessari, Valentina Vargiu, and Salvatore Vaccarella, Piano Iwona Glinka, Flute Jorge Fanjul, Cello Ghenadie Rotari, Accordion

An economist and a chess master discuss the future of democratic capitalism. Angry citizens from Belgium to Brazil are leading protests to demand a greater say in their political, personal, and economic futures. Their underlying outrage is the same, says economist Dambisa Moyo. People are demanding their governments do more to improve their lives faster, something which policymakers are unable to deliver under conditions of anemic growth. In her new book, Moyo argues that demographics, inequality, commodity scarcity, and technological innovation are driving social and economic unrest. The solution: a fundamental retooling of democratic capitalism. Fragile economies result in a fragile international community; that can lead, says Moyo, to a fragmented and unstable global future. Moyo will be joined in conversation by Garry Kasparov, 13th world chess champion and chairman of the Human Rights Foundation.

About the Program Leonard Bernstein's Sonata for Clarinet and Piano, written during 1941-42 and published in 1942, was Bernstein's first published piece. It is dedicated to clarinetist David Oppenheim, whom Bernstein met while studying at Tanglewood during the summers of 1940 and 1941.  Derek Bermel is a clarinetist and composer of “staggering eclecticism” (Gramophone Magazine). His works incorporate a wondrous array of the world’s sounds from West African rhythms, to Eastern European folk music, to Celtic strains, to jazz and the blues. According to Washington Post, “Derek Bermel’s  A Short History of the Universe proved to be a surprisingly playful work. All that freewheeling postmodernism made for an engaging, extremely enjoyable listen — an intriguing new work from a very 21st-century composer.” Inspired by a rereading of Ralph Ellison’s novel, The Invisible Man (1952), Intonations evokes the atmosphere of the jazz, blues and film scoring touches of the 1940s and ’50s, all refracted through Bermel’s own 21st-century sensibility.
