Liszt: Poetic and Religious Harmonies

Wednesday, September 25, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 6:00 pm, repeating until Friday, September 27, 2019

Adam Tendler & Jenny Lin catacombs image

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.

I am fertile ground

Saturday, September 28, 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until Sunday, November 17, 2019

Green-Wood Cemetery, 500 25th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11232 United States
+ Google Map

This fall, Green-Wood is thrilled to unveil a site-specific installation in the Cemetery’s Catacombs by acclaimed artist Janine Antoni.

For nearly three decades, Antoni has used the body, most often her own, as a tool and a subject for her artwork. In I am fertile ground, she expands on this theme by using the language of religious icons to pay homage to what she has discovered through her improvisational dance practice. The instinctual ways that the body moves allow it to communicate and express itself, as well as serve as a vehicle for spiritual experiences. Idiosyncratic gestures are contextualized by those that are more recognizable, like hands clasped in prayer. Each work enshrines a gesture, rendering it as both exalted and fragile.
