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 | Translating Jewish Literature: Text, Context, Subtext


Modern Hebrew literature is composed of layers. It grew out of what may be referred to as 'The Jewish Library,' that is, such texts as the Bible, the Talmud, Midrashim, the Liturgy, the Haskalah movement of the last couple hundred years, and the large body of translated literature. In its richest manifestations (e.g., the works of S.Y.Agnon), resonances of that textual wealth can be discerned. Yet, the creative impulse was in transforming the contexts and subtexts of those works to serve a different (i.e., modern) purpose. Speaker Barbara Harshav began her professional career as a history professor. In the late 1970s, she fell into translation and has been in that field pretty much ever since. She has translated works of literature, history, philosophy, sociology and economics. Since she began, she has published over fifty books and numerous articles and essays from Yiddish, French, German and Hebrew.

Play | Measure for Measure: An Adaptation of Shakespeare's Classic Comedy


It's 1979, Mardi Gras has been officially cancelled, yet the community is still celebrating. Temporarily left in charge by the Duke, the upright and uptight Lord Angelo has decided to crack down on the city's debauchery, arresting young Claudio for impregnating his fiancee Juliet before their wedding. When virtuous Isabella, Claudio's sister, hears of his death sentence, she begs Lord Angelo for mercy. But hypocritical Angelo propositions her instead, leaving Isabella with an impossible choice: save her soul or her brother's life. In this timely production, lovers and leaders in disguise reveal how those in power take advantage of those without it - asking the question, can the law be both just and merciful?

Talk | Artist Talk: Invisible Structures


Pieter Schoolwerth is a painter, filmmaker, and musician who lives and works in New York. Schoolwerth’s ‘painting in the last instance’ captures invisible flows of abstraction that structure contemporary experience, and turns them into motifs for an elaborate new kind of figurative painting. In his work, the stuff of paint itself reappears as a supplement only at the end of a complex, multi-media effort to produce a figurative picture depicting the ‘once removed’ space of the virtual.
