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 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Lecture | The Aura of the Dead in a Disenchanted World


Aura -- the breath of enchantment -- that makes the body of a saint or a unique masterwork of art special is said to be on the wane, done in by technology and secularization. But the bodies of the dead and even their ashes, indistinguishable one urn from other, have lost little of their potency. This lecture explores the ways in which the aura of mortal remains function to create sacrality in the absence of God and other worlds beyond our own. Speaker Thomas W. Laqueur is the Helen Fawcett Professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley.

Opening Reception | Life and Limbs: Design as a Propositional Term


Considering ‘design’ as a propositional term, the show assembles a group of works from a number of disciplines, each of which registers the body as an implicit existential category. Juxtaposing disparate artistic practices, transgressive designs for bodily alteration involving mechanical or prosthetic devices are placed in conversation with surrealist drawings and fashion designs. Based in difference and unpredictability, each troubles the boundaries of corporeality on its own terms.

Author Reading | Rock, Paper, Scissors and Other Stories: Great Subtlety and Striking Insight


Maxim Osipov, who lives and practices medicine in a town ninety miles outside Moscow, is one of Russia’s best contemporary writers. In the tradition of Anton Chekhov and William Carlos Williams, he draws on his experiences in medicine to write stories of great subtlety and striking insight. Osipov’s fiction presents a nuanced, collage-like portrait of life in provincial Russia—its tragedies, frustrations, and moments of humble beauty and inspiration. The twelve stories in this volume depict doctors, actors, screenwriters, teachers, entrepreneurs, local political bosses, and common criminals whose paths intersect in unpredictable yet entirely natural ways: in sickrooms, classrooms, administrative offices and on trains and in planes. Their encounters lead to disasters, major and minor epiphanies, and—on occasion—the promise of redemption.

Talk | Tin Pan Alley Uptown and Down: A Multimedia Presentation with Live Music


Tin Pan Alley Uptown and Down: a multi-media presentation with live music about the talented Upper West Siders who lived in Bloomingdale and worked on Tin Pan Alley. Many of the composers, lyricists, and publishers of the hit songs of the 20th century commuted from the Bloomingdale neighborhood on the upper west side to Tin Pan Alley, just north of Madison Square. To honor these talented former residents of their neighborhood, members of the Bloomingdale Neighborhood History Group have put together a program that combines a multimedia presentation, a history talk, and an update on efforts to landmark the Tin Pan Alley area accompanied by a live performance of music that originated from that storied slice of Manhattan.

Author Reading | Fantasy Island: Colonialism, Exploitation, and the Betrayal of Puerto Rico


Two years after Hurricane María, Puerto Rico is still reeling from the storm’s physical destruction and the ensuing infrastructure collapse. The devastation compounded the harmful effects of over a century of exploitative US economic, political, and social policies, including the trauma inflicted by its $72 billion debt crisis. Author Ed Morales traces how, over the years, Puerto Rico has served as a colonial satellite, a Cold War Caribbean showcase, a dumping ground for US manufactured goods, and a corporate tax shelter.

A wondrously compelling tale of friendship and feminism around the relationship of two seemingly opposite women. Olga is a professor of women’s literature, while Ruth is a gifted and extremely reticent artist who is desperately fearful of the outside world. From their first meeting, they share a warmth and understanding whose intensity “can be only dimly understood by the film’s other principals, who have the ill fortune to be men” (New York Times).

Talk | After Genocide: Writing as Survival


From speaker Scholastique Mukasonga: "It took me ten years to overcome the guilt of surviving and return to Rwanda, to Nyamata, where my family had been deported in 1960, from where I left for exile in 1973, and where all my loved ones were massacred in April 1994. There I found nothing, not a grave, not a witness - bushes had covered everything. This may be a myth I forged for myself, but I am convinced that my parents chose me for exile not only to save my life, but also to perpetuate their memory. By writing I hope to have accomplished what they expected of me." Born in Rwanda in 1956, Mukasonga experienced from childhood the violence and humiliation of the ethnic conflicts that shook her country. Her family was displaced, and she was later forced to flee to Burundi, then to France, from where she learned that thirty-seven of her family members had been massacred in the 1994 genocide. She published her first book in 2006. Translated into English as Cockroaches, it was named one of the New York Times' 50 best memoirs of the last 50 years.

Forum | Climate Change, Water and National Security for the Middle East


The Middle East region is considered a climate hotspot due to its natural water scarcity, social tensions and political conflicts. Over the course of the century, Jordan and Israel are projected to experience an average temperature rise of up to 4?C; a general decrease in precipitation of 25 percent regionally and up to 40 percent locally; a shift in rain seasons from winter and spring to autumn; a higher frequency and intensity of extreme weather events such as droughts, flash floods, and forest fires; as well as a growing rate of desertification. Despite the effects of climate change being already observable in the region, little has been done to develop a regional, integrated roadmap for climate-related national security in the region. EcoPeace Middle East, a nonprofit organization with offices in Amman, Ramallah and Tel Aviv, has held roundtables in each of the three cities, to address these issues, resulting in this report. This forum will discuss the scientific findings and policy recommendations to address this looming ecological crisis and its national security implications. Speakers Gidon Bromberg, Israeli Director, EcoPeace Middle East Nada Majdalani, Palestinian Director, EcoPeace Middle East Yana Abu Taleb, Jordanian Director, EcoPeace Middle East Moderator Michael B. Gerrard, Professor and Director, Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, Columbia Law School Event sponsors: Sabin Center for Climate Change Law The Earth Institute EcoPeace Middle East This event is open to the public without charge but registration is required.
