Burgers, Bourbon, & Beethoven

We’ll be launching Season 2 of The Angel’s Share with the first-ever “Burgers, Bourbon & Beethoven Festival.” What’s that, you ask? Oh no big deal, just literally **the best event ever conceived in the history of humanity.** It starts with Burgers - four different slider recipes, served up to you straight from the grill, which you’ll rate on the Burger Club (www.brgrclub.com) website. Then it goes to Bourbon - tasting a generous spread of top-notch spirits from some of the area’s finest purveyors. And it finishes, as all good parties must, with a rousing performance of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, performed by the String Orchestra of Brooklyn.

Event Series Purcell: Dido and Aeneas

Purcell: Dido and Aeneas

Henry Purcell wrote Dido & Aeneas in 1680, but this tragic meditation on destiny, love, and death resonates just as powerfully today. Director Alek Shrader interweaves excerpts from Christopher Marlowe’s play based on the same story, infusing a sense of agency and dignity back to the character of the wounded queen, and the terrible decision she faces when abandoned by the love of her life. With superstar Daniela Mack as Dido, you won't want to miss her sing the heartrending final aria “When I Am Laid in Earth” (while...in...a...Catacomb!)

Epilogues and Epitaphs

Most people wouldn’t equate “historically-informed Baroque chamber music” with “soul-blasting, face-melting hot sauce fire”... at least not until they hear Augusta McKay Lodge. She and her band Voyage Sonique bring a gas torch to the works of a bygone era, burning a path through a series of musical monuments to grief and remembrance.

Liszt: Poetic and Religious Harmonies

Almost no one plays the complete Poetic and Religious Harmonies by Franz Liszt. Between the sheer finger-bending virtuosity, emotionally-draining intensity, and epic length, each of the ten movements stands as its very own musical monolith. But when experienced all together, the cycle gains an almost mystical transcendence, a spiritual journey from the opening “Invocation,” the meditative glow of “The Blessing of God in Solitude,” the anguish of “Funeral,” and the quiet rapture of “Hymn of Love.” It’s a lot for one pianist to take on, and that’s why we’ve got two of ‘em: keyboard stars Adam Tendler and Jenny Lin, both bringing their unique talents and vision to their respective half of the piece.
