Classical Music | Bach Plus One Concert


The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor. This season, Bach at One evolves into Bach + One: featuring one Bach cantata each week paired with a complementary work from composers early to modern. Trinity’s presentation of Bach’s entire monumental output of vocal sacred music has been praised by The New York Times for its “dramatic vigor.” Program Johann Sebastian Bach Meine Seel erhebt den Herren, BWV 10 Johann Friedrich Fasch Concerto in D for Trumpet, Two Oboes and Strings, FaWV L:D1 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

A literary celebration of poet and novelist Larissa Shmailo's latest work, Sly Bang. Shmailo will be joined by several of her peers, including Anna Halberstadt, Elizabeth L. Hodges, Regina Khidekel, Irina Mashinski, Alexander Veytsman, Anton Yakovlev, and Andrey Gritsman, as they read from and respond to her new novel. Sly Bang is an experimental science fiction non-linear novel, including prose and poetry, that pits Shmailo's alter ego, “Larissa Ekaterina Anastasia Nikolayevna Romanova, tsaritsa of all the Russias,” against an “army of serial killers, mad scientists, and ultrarich sociopaths.”  Larissa Shmailo is known for her literary translations from Russian to English, particularly her translation of Victory over the Sun and the anthology, Twenty-First Century Russian Poetry. Shmailo's poetry collections are Medusa's Country (2017), #specialcharacters (2014), In Paran (2009) and the chapbooks A Cure for Suicide (2006) and Fib Sequence.

Author Reading | Orange World and Other Stories: A New Book By the Pulitzer Prize Finalist Karen Russell


The best-selling author Karen Russell's new short story collection bends reality with uncanny imagination and unmistakable heart. Alongside the alligator wrestlers and prescient seagulls of her previous books, the tornado farmers, beloved bog girls, and breastfed devils in Karen Russell's new collection, Orange World and Other Stories, are right at home. Widely embraced for her earlier works Swamplandia and Vampires in the Lemon Grove, Karen Russell returns with a new collection of eight short stories as funny and inventive as they are memorable. Here she explores territory as common as first love, new motherhood, and the fight for a better life with the fantastical and phantasmagoric flair we have come to anticipate and admire in her work. Russell, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow, and a 2012 Fellow at the American Academy in Berlin, will speak about her unique brand of storytelling and navigating plots that take us to the edge of reality and beyond. She will be joined in conversation by novelist Téa Obreht.

Author Reading | Our Man: Richard Holbrooke: New York Times Best Selling Writer Talks With Ambassador Samantha Power 


George Packer talks with Ambassador Samantha Power about his new biography, Our Man: Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century. Packer delves into the life of Richard Holbrooke, the force behind the Dayton Accords, which ended the Balkan wars, illustrating how his story is also that of America during its era of supremacy: its strength, drive, and sense of possibility, as well as its penchant for overreach and heedless self-confidence. George Packer is a staff writer at the Atlantic and the author of The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America, which was a New York Times best seller and winner of the 2013 National Book Award. His other nonfiction books include The Assassins’ Gate: America in Iraq, a finalist for the 2006 Pulitzer Prize, and Blood of the Liberals, winner of the 2001 Robert F. Kennedy Book Award. Ambassador Samantha Power is the Anna Lindh Professor of the Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School and Professor of Practice at Harvard Law School. From 2013 to 2017 Power served as the 28th U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, as well as a member of President Obama’s cabinet.
