Magicians, monsters, and marriage are just a few of the characters and themes in Jean-Phillipe Rameau’s rousing opera, Dardanus, which loosely follows the story of the son of Zeus and Electra. Written by the eminent 18th-century French composer, this Baroque opera’s fantastical story is brought to life by one of New York’s own superb period-instrument ensembles, led by Avi Stein, with internationally renowned soloists.

“The ensemble performed with impeccable clarity and crispness.” — The New York Times

World-renowned jazz pianist and composer Brad Mehldau brings an intimate solo piano concert to the Music Room this spring. An improviser first and foremost, he greatly cherishes the surprise and wonder that can occur from a spontaneous musical idea that is expressed directly, in real time. But he also has a deep fascination for the formal architecture of music, and it informs everything he plays. The two sides of Mehldau’s personality — the improviser and the formalist — play off each other, and the effect is often something like controlled chaos.

“Mehldau is the most influential jazz pianist of the last 20 years.” — The New York Times

We welcome back composer/conductor Rob Kapilow for another installment of his “What Makes It Great” series. Our 2019-20 Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence joins him to delve into Beethoven’s Quartet in F Major, Op.18, No. 1. During the program, Kapilow will deconstruct, slow down, and reassemble Beethoven’s masterwork, one of his earliest compositions for the medium, followed by a complete performance and a Q&A session with all the artists.

“Because Kapilow is so good at what he does, knowledge about how music actually works, how it is put together — as opposed to dry facts about composers’ lives — doesn’t fly away with the whirlwind, but instead lodges in the memory, where they can grow.” — Boston Globe
