Antonin DvorkA Bohemian Idyll

Close Encounters ushers in the summer season in the Berkshires with a program devoted to Antonin Dvork, whose music almost by definition glows with lyricism and melodiousness. We are never far, in this music (Piano Quintet and Dumky Trio), from the Czech countryside and a languid summers evening. His Biblical Songs, Gypsy Songs, and selections from the opera Rusalka, reflect another aspect of his output. Grammy Award winning mezzo-soprano Kelley OConnor, who captivated audiences in John Adamss The Gospel According to the Other Mary (world premiere staging by Peter Sellars under Gustavo Dudamel) makes her Berkshire debut. Smoky sound and riveting presence...""The New York Times.

She is joined by two major international competition laureates, Itamar Zorman (Avery Fisher Award and Moscow) and Roman Rabinovich (Arthur Rubenstein). Major prize winners, a diva, and one of the most beloved figures in classical music.

Artists:
Kelly O'Connor, mezzosoprano; Itamar Zorman, violin; Roman Rabinovich, piano; Yehuda Hanani, cello; violin and viola tba

Strauss's Rosenkavalier ("The Night of the Rose") portrays the bitter-sweet love triangle between the worldly-wise, aristocratic Marshallin, her young toy-boy lover, and a young rose, Sophie, in a rollicking comic opera that is, well, Wunderbar! The BSO's Andris Nelsons presents Rachmaninov's lush Symphonic Dances, the composer's final composition, written in New York exile but full of nostalgia for the old Russia. Ravel's Bolero--pounding, relentless, irresistible-rounds out a spectacular gala program.

Baritone Thomas Hampson, dubbed "the ambassador of American song," performs Aaron Copland's deceptively plain Old American Songs. Beethoven's Symphony 7 rounds out a program that is in turns, dark, joyful, nostalgic and hopeful.

Czech composer Antonin Dvorak was a long-serving orchestral string player, so it is curious that his beautiful, singing violin concerto should be the least well-known of all the instrument's great masterpieces. Flowing, lyrical and fiery, the concerto reminds the German virtuoso Anne-Sophie Mutter of passages in Mozart's The Magic Flute sung by the Queen of the Night due to its technically daunting passages for the violin's highest register. Andris Nelsons, the BSO's music director designate, offers a torrent of melodies in Dvorak's 8th symphony, in turns thrilling, adventurous and achingly lyrical.

Jerusalem-born conductor Asher Fisch leads a Romantic program fitting for a mid-summer Berkshires' evening. "I've just finished a tiny, tiny piano concerto," Brahms wrote to a friend, referring with great understatement to his piano concerto number 2, a piece as expansive and passionate as a symphony and as intimate at times as a string quartet, and performed alongside the BSO by the magisterial American pianist, Garrick Ohlsson. The preface to the score of Liszt's Romantic symphonic poem Les Preludes reads, in part, "Love is the enchanted dawn of existence," a sentiment echoed in the closing excerpts from Wagner's sunniest opera, Die Meistersinger a tale of love fulfilled.

The Wizard of Oz was a technical marvel for the MGM studio in the late 1930s. MGM has stunningly re-mastered this timeless classic, and in this version, produced by John Goberman, the brilliantly restored images are accompanied by a the Boston Pops playing entirely new transcriptions of Harold Arlen's brilliant lost scores. Hearing Judy Garland's original 1939 vocals backed by lush, live orchestration, will transport children and adults alike. With this presentation of The Wizard of Oz on the big screen, moviegoers will be treated to the Oscar-winning film as it has never been experienced before.

Director Talk-Back and Screening of "Edith Wharton: The Sense of Harmony"

The Mount presents, in partnership with The Berkshire International Film Festival,a screening of Edith Wharton: The Sense of Harmony, asweeping biography that follows Edith Wharton from the beaches of Newport to the frontlines in France and beyond and features the only known, and very rare, film footage of Wharton. Director Elizabeth Lennard will give a talk-back after the screening.

Author of numerous bestsellers, Edith Wharton was a cosmopolitan in an age when cosmopolitanism was still a privilege of the elite. From the outset of WWI, Whartons eyewitness accounts from the battlefront helped convince the American public to join the allied forces. Also during the war, Wharton translated her literary concerns with the social plight of women into action by initiating self-sufficient ouvroirs," as well as hospitals and orphanages.

Woman of action and tireless traveler, Wharton nonetheless was obsessed with the home and its decoration, a recurrent theme in her work. She took great pride in the building and garden design of her own home, The Mount in Massachusetts, and the creation of gardens at her other homes in France, where she took up permanent residence in 1907.

Film footageis used to illustrate Edith Whartons life and literature, and critical guides in this film include Whartons biographers: Louis Auchincloss, R.W.B. Lewis, and Eleanor Dwight. Writer Colin Clark and Historian Sir Steven Runciman (who knew Wharton personally) give moving accounts.

Elizabeth Lennard is a filmmaker, artist, and photograph whogrew up in the San Francisco bay area and has made Paris her home for several years.

Antonin DvorkA Bohemian Idyll
Close Encounters ushers in the summer season in the Berkshires with a program devoted to Antonin Dvork, whose music almost by definition glows with lyricism and melodiousness. We are never far, in this music (Piano Quintet and Dumky Trio), from the Czech countryside and a languid summers evening. His Biblical Songs, Gypsy Songs, and selections from the opera Rusalka, reflect another aspect of his output. Grammy Award winning mezzo-soprano Kelley OConnor, who captivated audiences in John Adamss The Gospel According to the Other Mary (world premiere staging by Peter Sellars under Gustavo Dudamel) makes her Berkshire debut. Smoky sound and riveting presence...""The New York Times. She is joined by two major international competition laureates, Itamar Zorman (Avery Fisher Award and Moscow) and Roman Rabinovich (Arthur Rubenstein). Major prize winners, a diva, and one of the most beloved figures in classical music. Artists: Kelly O'Connor, mezzosoprano; Itamar Zorman, violin; Roman Rabinovich, piano; Yehuda Hanani, cello; violin and viola tba
