Book Reading |
Long before London and New York rose to international prominence, a trading route was discovered between Spanish America and China that ushered in a new era of globalization. The Ruta de la Plata, or Silver Way, catalysed economic and cultural exchange, built the foundations for the first global currency, and led to the rise of the first "world city." And yet, for all its importance, the Silver Way is too often neglected in conventional narratives covering the birth of globalisation.

In October, President Xi opened China’s 19th Party Congress declaring that China is “taking a driving seat in international cooperation to respond to climate change.” As President Trump arrives in Beijing for bilateral meetings, please join us please join us in exploring questions such as: What are China and the U.S. each doing to address climate change? Can cooperation between China and the US. on clean energy and climate survive a period in which the U.S. President questions the scientific consensus on climate change and rejects the Paris climate accords? What impact would potential energy trade disputes have on both countries?

This program demonstrates the sonata for cello and basso continuo spanning chronological as well as geographical distance. The Duo Dialogues proposes a journey from Cattaneo, (who published the ' Tratenimenti Armonici da Camera' in Modena in 1700 from which the first sonata is excerpted) to Jean Barrière, one of the first cello virtuosos in France, born in Bordeaux and active in the 1730's. In between these two extremes, the duo portrays a relationship between composers, genres, and instrumentations with a Sonata by Antonio Vivaldi, JS Bach's transcription of a concerto by Vivaldi for solo keyboard (featuring a Gigue) and excerpts from the first suite for solo cello by JS Bach.

From th artist: "These paintings move from darkness into light. They were created during a period of emotional turbulence and re-evaluation, during which I worked and lived in healing isolation. The physical process of building, of creation, allowed me to resist the narrative of despair, and instead to acknowledge who I am as an artist, a woman and as a soul."

45 years ago, the album Transformer launched Lou Reed from the underground way up to Mars, with a little help from Starman Bowie. Mick Rock was there to capture Reed's flight on film, beginning with the iconic album cover and continuing through the wild side of the seventies. In this newly published book, images from throughout the seventies chronicle Reed’s transformations from the unique perspective of a close friend. Transformer presents Reed’s choice of photographs, from the famous to the never-before-seen and showcases several of Reed’s album covers, beginning with Transformer—a lucky development that established Rock and Reed’s 40-year friendship and became one of the most iconic images of modern music.
