Event Details

Reflections Series International is pleased to announce its 2014-2015 season in its second year at Avenues: The World School. Reflections' relationship with Avenues is particularly appropriate, as they both integrate cultural diversity, international exchanges, and interactive multi-disciplinary collaborations. Avenues' state of the art black box theater, steps from New York's Highline Park, is the perfect setting for Reflections' sophisticated but relaxed performances.

The 2014-2015 season includes four innovative concerts. 
 

Reflections Series International 2014-2015 at Avenues:

October 2: Johannes Brahms: Before, During and After
Gil Morgenstern, violin
Ole Akahoshi, cello
Rieko Aizawa, piano

The opening program of the 2014 – 2015 Reflections Series International season features Johannes Brahms’ Piano Trio in B Major, written in 1854 but completely revised in 1891. While both artistic and personal relationships contribute to a good deal of discussion and even personal intrigue surrounding the trio, this program will bring to life the musical references of preceding composers (Schubert, Beethoven, Bach and Schumann) that lie at the heart of this great work. Rounding out the program will be his ever-popular Violin Sonata in d minor, and a contemporary work thematically linked to Brahms. Joining Mr. Morgenstern will be cellist Ole Akahoshi, and pianist, Rieko Aizawa.

 

December 11: The Voice of the Violin
Gil Morgenstern, violin
J.Y. Song, piano

The Voice of the Violin continues Gil Morgenstern's showcasing of the singularly expressive range of the violin and the diverse manner in which composers have exploited it. This program will take us around the globe, from east to west and from the Baroque to the contemporary styles. Highlights include an elegant Sonata by Jean-Marie Leclaire, who effectively combined the Parisian and Italian Baroque styles, Beethoven’s grand Violin Sonata in c minor, “The Stream Flows” by the Chinese-American composer Bright Sheng, and the angular modernity of Elliott Carter’s “Riconoscenza per Goffredo Petrassi.” Joining Mr. Morgenstern on this musical voyage will be pianist, J.Y. Song. 


February 26: Coupled Perceptions
Gil Morgenstern, violin
Mary Cochran, special guest choreographer and dancer
J.Y. Song, piano
with Michael Novak, Anna Schön, and James “Floats” Fable 
 
How does adding another artistic discipline to music alter our experience as audience members? Do we hear or listen to the work differently? Can the whole be greater than the sum of its parts? Are we able to absorb all the information bombarding our brains? In this concert, Gil Morgenstern is joined by dancer/choreographer Mary Cochran and pianist J.Y. Song in an exploration of these questions through music and dance.  The musical works will first be performed as they were originally written, giving the audience the opportunity to become familiar with them. These works will then reappear over the course of the program, reinterpreted with original choreography, giving the audience the chance to experience them as completely different works. Joining Mr. Morgenstern will be Mary Cochran (formerly with Paul Taylor Dance Company), Michael Novak (currently with Paul Taylor), Anna Schön and “Popper” James Floats Fable.

 
May 21: Nature's Bounty
Gil Morgenstern, violin
Harumi Rhodes, violin
Kathryn Lockwood, viola
Inbal Segev, cello
Yousif Sheronick, percussion
 
The final program in the 2014-2015 Reflections Series International season will present music and text inspired by personal encounters with both natural and man-made landscapes; immortalizing them through works of unparalleled beauty and drama.  This artistic journey, from flowing crystalline streams in China to the haunting terrain of the Middle East to the wide open prairies of the American Great Plains includes music by Aaron Copland, Antonin Dvořák, Zhou Long and Riad El-Soumbati, along with text from the works of Mary Shelly, Naguib Mahfouz and Gaetano Cipolla.
