THE JOY OF SEXTETS

Music from Copland House

Four generations of American composers conjure the musical ghosts of Bach, Schubert, the famed late-English Renaissance composer Orlando Gibbon, and others. Featuring Aaron Copland’s 1933 masterwork, the Sextet for Clarinet, String Quartet, and Piano; Tashi by the prodigious Lukas Foss; Partita-Pastorale after J.S.B. by Pulitzer Prize-winner Steven Stucky, and Motion by perhaps today’s most-talked-about young composer, Nico Muhly.

HARMONIE DU SOIR

Copland House's annual culinary annd musical gala

“Sounds and scents swirl in the evening air,” wrote the towering French poet Charles Baudelaire in Harmonie du soir. An elegant private salon in the pulsing heart of Manhattan perfectly symbolizes the bridge that both links and separates intimate and effusive, subtle and vibrant, fleeting and enduring. Renowned chef Eric Ripert will create expressly for this special occasion a seasonal, 4-course gastronomic seascape. Our internationally-acclaimed Music from Copland House ensemble will pair Chef Ripert’s exquisite Carte du soir with an exhilarating musical menu of works by French icons Claude Debussy and Gabriel Faure, and American Francophiles Ned Rorem, Samuel Barber, Marc Blitzstein, Daron Hagen, and George Gershwin. A memorable evening of impeccable epicurean and musical harmonizing!

FLEETING MELODIES, INVISIBLE POEMS

Music from Copland House

An unusual musical celebration! Join us for the 141st birthday of one of the 20th century’s most important poets, Rainer Maria Rilke, whose focus on disbelief, solitude, and anxiety not only influenced generations of writers who followed, but also inspired more composers to set his texts to music than nearly any other major writer. Features Melodies passageres by Mount Kisco’s own two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Samuel Barber; selections from Paul Hindemith’s epic Das Marienleben chronicling the life of the Virgin Mary; and stunning love songs by the iconic Leonard Bernstein and Grawemeyer Award-winner Peter Lieberson. Professor Edward Snow of Houston’s Rice University, the award-winning Rilke scholar and translator, will be on hand to introduce the music and words, and lead a Question-and-Answer discussion with the audience.
