LES ANNEES FOLLES ... When Paris Sizzled
A culinary and musical gala benefiting Copland House
Gala Co-Chairs: Lisa Schultz and Ezriel Kornel

Le Bernardin Privé, 153 West 51st Street, New York City
“We all went to Paris. It was where we had to be,” said Gertrude Stein. Picasso was there. So were Stravinsky and Diaghilev. And Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Joyce, Gide, Mondrian, Braque, Ravel, Eliot, and countless other artistic luminaries and rising stars ... including the young Aaron Copland. “The sheer glamour of the period exerts a magic spell,” he wrote. “The air was charged ... anything was possible ... tradition was nothing, innovation was everything.” The arts sizzled in 1920s Paris, which seemed like the center of the universe during Les Années Folles – “the crazy years.” Our magical, one-night-only culinary and musical gala recreates the intoxicating aura of that exhilarating era. Within the vivacious and welcoming embrace of Le Bernardin Privé, renowned Michelin three-star chef Eric Ripert will specially devise a four-course gastronomic journey that will be paired with a musical menu of scintillating works by Stravinsky, Ravel Copland, Fauré, Gerhswin, and de Falla, “served” in live, delectable performances by our internationally-acclaimed Music from Copland House ensemble. Please join us at Le Bernardin Privé for a truly memorable evening of epicurean and sonic enchantments.
