Golden Cockerel
Thursday-Saturday at 7:30pm

The fifteenth and last opera written by N. Rimsky-Korsakov, Golden Cockerel is based on a faux fairytale by a great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin and set to a libretto by Vladimir Belsky. The piece is a cornerstone of the Russian opera heritage; it has enjoyed international success ever since it premiered in 1909, but it has not been seen in NYC in decades. This is the first-ever production in New York City to be performed in the original Russian.

Orchestra of St Luke's
Multi- Disciplinary Chamber Music Festival
FIRST YEAR THEME IS
FACETS OF SCHUBERT
JUNE 7 - 25, 2017
Three Programs Feature Conversation with
New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik, composer Steven Mackey,
curators from the Morgan Library & Museum and St. Luke's President James Roe

ORCHESTRA OF ST. LUKE'S LAUNCHES NEW ANNUAL MULTI-DISCIPLINARY CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL AT THE MORGAN LIBRARY & MUSEUM AND BROOKLYN MUSEUM Soprano Ying Fang and Pianist Henry Kramer to Join St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble

Orchestra of St. Luke's will debut Facets of Schubert, the first iteration of the Ensemble's new chamber music festival at the Morgan Library & Museum and Brooklyn Museum, from June 7 through 25. This inaugural edition will present three richly curated programs that illuminate Schubert's life and music through performance, conversation with notable speakers, and literary narrative read in concert with music. The Festival will take place each June and focus on a selected composer every year.

The Festival's 2017 initial season Facets of Schubert takes three chamber music masterpieces as entry points for explorations of the composer's art and life. Programs feature the centrality of song, finished works that Schubert never heard and unfinished fragments, and the world premiere of Adam Gopnik's literary response to the composer's monumental Octet.

Program I: Trout Quintet & The Art of Song
This opening program will guide the audience through the juncture of Schubert's vocal and instrumental music. Renowned composer and electric guitarist Steven Mackey will offer insights on writing music for voice.

Program II: Cello Quintet & Unfinished Works
Because Schubert's life was cut tragically short by illness, a body of his work was left unfinished, and many completed pieces were never heard by the composer - or anyone - during his life. These concerts combine the unfinished with the unheard. The Morgan's Carolyn Vega, Assistant Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts, and Ilona van Tuinen, Annette and Oscar de la Renta Assistant Curator of Drawings and Prints, join OSL's James Roe, President and Executive Director, in a pre-concert conversation on the theme of unfinished artistic works.

Program III: Octet with Readings by Adam Gopnik
Here, the music of Schubert's Octet is paired in dialogue with one of New York's most distinctive literary voices and a great fan of the composer, Adam Gopnik. Between movements of the Octet, Gopnik will read the original narrative about the intersection of music and life, which was commissioned by Orchestra of St. Luke's. Conversation with the author following each performance will explore the process of creating this unique work.
