New York, New York, June 17, 2014—Ehrenkranz Artistic Director Jane Moss today announced the schedule for Lincoln Center’s fifth White Light Festival, October 7 through November 11, 2014.  The multidisciplinary Festival spans 12 venues, and numerous musical traditions and genres. It will include 30 performances, films, and events and feature eight premieres, plus new works and debuts by artists and companies from the United States, Australia, Germany, Pakistan, Poland, the U.K. and South Africa including the Lincoln Center debut of the Berliner Philharmoniker. Other Festival components include pre- and post-performance artist discussions and the popular post-performance White Light Lounges, where performers and audience members can meet.

 

The White Light Festival, which takes its name from a quotation by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, is focused on the remarkable power of art to reveal the many dimensions of our interior lives.

 

Said Ms. Moss, “To celebrate its fifth anniversary, the Festival features extraordinary artistic creations by major international artists and ensembles from across a spectrum of Western and Eastern traditions. It is our hope that both new and returning audiences will be deeply inspired and moved by the profound insights and illuminations offered by these presentations.”

 

The Festival opens on October 7 with the U.S. premiere of Peter Sellars’ staging of Bach’s monumental masterpiece St. Matthew Passion at Park Avenue Armory, with Sir Simon Rattle conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker, and Rundfunkchor Berlin, in a co-presentation with Park Avenue Armory.  There will be a pre-festival discussion with Simon Halsey and Peter Sellars on October 6 at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse.

 

The Festival comes to a close on November 11 with the New York premiere of Lincoln Center’s commission of the acclaimed South African director and artist William Kentridge’s Winterreise, Franz Schubert’s haunting song cycle for voice and piano. Winterreise features a unique visual and staged environment, including 24 animated films to complement the cycle’s 24 songs, and will be performed by German baritone Matthias Goerne, one of the foremost interpreters of Schubert song.

 

Tickets for the 2014 White Light Festival are available online at WhiteLightFestival.org, by calling CenterCharge at 212-721-6500, or visiting the Avery Fisher or Alice Tully Hall box offices, Broadway and 65th Street.

Lincoln Center and Park Avenue Armory would like to thank Carnegie Hall for its collaboration in making possible these Berliner Philharmoniker performances.

 

The Berliner Philharmoniker residency in New York City is made possible by a leadership gift from the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation, and Marina Kellen French. 

 

The White Light Festival will open with the U.S. premiere of a staged performance of J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, directed by Peter Sellars at Park Avenue Armory, with the Berliner Philharmoniker led by Sir Simon Rattle, and the Rundfunkchor Berlin led by Simon Halsey, joined by a stellar cast of singers including tenor Mark Padmore and baritone Christian Gerhaher.  Peter Sellars and Simon Halsey will discuss the production and their insights about St. Matthew Passion with Jane Moss on Monday, October 6 at 6:30 PM in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse.

 

Considered to be one of sacred music’s greatest masterpieces, the work sets the Passion story from the Gospel of Matthew to music incorporating chorales and arias throughout.  Sellars staged the work to great acclaim in the famed home of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Berlin Philharmonie. For these performances, a stage and seating installation modeled on the Philharmonie’s unique in-the-round seating configuration will be constructed inside the Armory’s cavernous Wade Thompson Drill Hall, creating a theatrical immediacy and intimacy between the audience and performers not possible in traditional concert halls.

Chalk and Soot (2014) (N.Y. Premiere)

Dance Heginbotham and Brooklyn Rider

John Heginbotham, choreographer

Colin Jacobsen, composer

Featuring Carla Kihlstedt, vocalist

 

Co-presented by Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival and Baryshnikov Arts Center.

 

Choreographer John Heginbotham and composer Colin Jacobsen join artistic forces in a new work based on Dadaistic poems by 20th-century Russian artist and theorist Wassily Kandinsky. Chalk and Soot features Heginbotham’s theatrical choreography set to Jacobsen's inventive score, performed live by the acclaimed Brooklyn Rider and vocalist Carla Kihlstedt. Based on Klänges (Sounds), Kandinsky’s 1912 book of modernist poetry and woodcuts, Chalk and Soot is a balanced fusion of dance and music created collaboratively by Heginbotham and Jacobsen.  This neo-absurdist work will guide audiences through a universe populated by a silent tribe made up of the eerie figures suggested in Kandinsky’s text.

 

The first iteration of Chalk and Soot premiered on November 16, 2012, and was commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as part of its ‘Rite of Spring at 100’ celebration. Chalk and Soot was co-commissioned and created in part during three Creative Development Residencies at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, with support from the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award Initiative. Support for the creation and touring of Chalk and Soot provided by the O’Donnell-Green Music and Dance Foundation, the Hollister-Clagett Family Foundation for the Performing Arts, the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Celebrated choral conductor Simon Halsey leads the Rundfunkchor Berlin (Radio Choir Berlin) at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, whose rich acoustics are specially suited to this glorious work for unaccompanied chorus. Rundfunkchor Berlin, the oldest radio choir in Germany, is considered one of the finest choral groups in the world. Consisting of 64 singers, the group has won multiple Grammy and ECHO Klassic Awards.

New York Society for Ethical Culture, 2 W. 64th Street

Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali

Ecstatic Journeys (Lincoln Center Debut)

There will be a pre-concert lecture at 6:15 pm at the New York Society for Ethical Cultures.

 

Led by the soaring Pakistani vocalists Rizwan and Muazzam, nephews of legendary vocalist Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, along with their spirited group of singers, and harmonium and tabla players, Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali spins Islamic and Sufi devotional poems into a rapturous experience that aims to transport the listener beyond earthly preoccupations.

 

Qawwali is a form of Sufi devotional poetry popular in South Asia, particularly in areas with a historically strong Muslim presence, such as Southern Pakistan and parts of North India. The style is rare, though not entirely absent, in North and West Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Kashmir. It’s a vibrant musical tradition that stretches back more than 700 years.  Achieving wajad, a trance-like state where listeners feel at one with God, is considered to be the height of spiritual ecstasy in Sufism, and is the ultimate goal of the practice. Qawwali music received international exposure through the work of the late Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, largely due to several releases on the Real World label, performances at WOMAD festivals and later appearances at leading concert venues worldwide. Although famous throughout the world, its economic and spiritual hub remains the Punjab province of Pakistan, from where it gained entry into the mainstream commercial music industry and international fame.

There will be a pre-performance discussion with Basil Twist on Friday, October 17 at 6:15 pm at the Irene Diamond Education Center in Frederick P. Rose Hall.

 

Commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

 

Basil Twist’s The Rite of Spring is a full-length orchestral program that places abstract puppetry—here, kinetic fabric and smoke sculptures—in the leading role of what Twist calls “a ballet without dancers.”  The Orchestra of St. Luke’s, conducted by Jayce Ogren, will provide the music. Also to be staged are Twist’s new versions of Stravinsky’s Pulcinella and Fireworks. A matinee performance will take place on Saturday, October 18. 

 

With The Rite of Spring, Basil Twist, a third-generation puppeteer and the sole American graduate from the esteemed École Supérieure Nationale des Arts de la Marionnette in France, will mark his fourth production on a Lincoln Center stage. His 2005 work, La Bella Dormente Nel Bosco, a co-commission by the Lincoln Center Festival and Spoleto Festival USA, was hailed as “ingenious and enchanting” by The New York Times. His 2001 Lincoln Center-commissioned work, Petrushka, also a representation of a Stravinsky ballet, and his highly acclaimed Symphonie Fantastique (2003) were presented by Lincoln Center’s Great Performers series.

There will be a post-performance discussion on Thursday, October 23 with I Fagiolini music director Robert Hollingworth.

 

Acrobats soar with the glorious sound of sacred song in the U.S. premiere of this exhilarating 2012 collaboration between Australian avant-garde circus troupe Circa and renowned British early music choir

I Fagiolini. In this site-specific creation, six Circa acrobats perform in a church to music provided by the nine-person vocal group I Fagiolini. The combination of these two groups in a space that invokes religious themes is meant to challenge audience members’ perceptions of the relationships between buildings and to formal worship, or, as Circa Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz describes, sets out to tackle “belief, love, failure, ascent, humility, endurance, passion, loss, death, and life.”  The music comprises Renaissance motets, a medieval monody, South African church music, and a commission from British composer Adrian Williams. How Like an Angel features Circa acrobats and architecture “in genuine dialogue with each other” (Guardian) and invites the audience to stand and shift position as the performers move around the space, creating a truly immersive experience.

White Light on Film: The Decalogue

 Krzysztof Kieslowski, director

All screenings: Walter Reade Theater, 165 West 65th Street

 

Presented in association with the Film Society of Lincoln Center

 

There will be a White Light Conversation, The Evolution of Morality, on Saturday, October 25 from 3:45-5:15 PM in the Walter Reade Theater which will be moderated by John Schaefer.

 

The Decalogue, the acclaimed 10-part film series directed by Poland’s Krzysztof Kieslowski (known for his Three Colors trilogy), was inspired by the biblical Ten Commandments.  This masterwork of modern cinema initially aired as a series on Polish television in 1989. While not widely known or released outside of Europe, The Decalogue is nonetheless revered by filmmakers such as Stanley Kubrick and critics like Roger Ebert. The complete cycle of 10 self-contained, hour-long “episodes” will be shown over the course of a weekend, making possible an immersive experience into Krzysztof Kieslowski’s enigmatic and poignantly human world.

 

To accompany the screening of The Decalogue, the Festival will present a White Light Conversation entitled The Evolution of Morality which will examine the role of morality in human evolution featuring noteworthy experts in human psychology, religion, neuroscience and anthropology. The discussion will take place on Saturday, October 25 from 3:45-5:15 PM in the Walter Reade Theater and it will be moderated by John Schaefer.

 

Friday, October 24, 2014 at 7:30 pm

Britten: Curlew River, Op. 71 

 

A co-commission and co-production between the Barbican Centre, London, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts,Carolina Performing Arts and CAL Performances Berkeley.

 

In this highly acclaimed 2013 production of Benjamin Britten’s church oratorio Curlew River, tenor Ian Bostridge delivers a devastating portrayal of a Madwoman tortured by the loss of her child in a production directed by Netia Jones in her New York debut. Britten was inspired by the austere and ritualized drama of Japanese Noh theater, and the work is a strange and haunting encounter between a Japanese aesthetic and a medieval mystery play set in the context of East Suffolk, shot through with mysterious, exotic music of exquisite refinement. Divided in two by the stage—a long, raised platform mimicking the titular river—the audience experiences the Madwoman’s profound isolation from inside visual artist and director Netia Jones’s haunting atmosphere of contrasts. Of its world premiere performance at the Barbican in 2013, London’s Guardian declared that Bostridge’s “performance will rank among the finest ever in this role.” Jones’s beautifully abstract minimalist staging and haunting projections distill the work to its essential elements—the aesthetic is a Japanese one of contrast: black and white; sound and silence; darkness and light; grief and enlightenment.

Franz Schubert’s song cycle for voice and piano, Winterreise (Winter’s Journey), is one of the landmark creations of the Western musical canon. Written in 1827, the cycle is set to 24 poems by the German poet Wilhelm Müller. Deeply existential and brooding in content and mood, Winterreise is eerily modern in its subject matter and outlook and has inspired a broad range of 20th century and contemporary artists in their own work. In this presentation, the acclaimed South African director and artist William Kentridge creates a unique visual and staged environment for his voyage through Schubert’s masterpiece, including 24 animated films to complement the cycle’s 24 songs, sung by the incomparable Matthias Goerne, one of the foremost interpreters of Schubert song.

More about the artists and ensembles

 

St. Matthew Passion

 

Peter Sellars, a renowned American stage and opera director, has garnered rave reviews for his work at Lincoln Center, most recently with the New York premiere of John Adams’s The Gospel According to the Other Mary, presented as part of Lincoln Center’s Great Performers 2012/13 season. He is one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the performing arts in America and abroad.  A visionary artist, Sellars is known for ground-breaking interpretations of classic works. His many acclaimed productions include stagings of Nixon in China for the Metropolitan Opera, George Crumb’s The Winds of Destiny for the Ojai Music Festival and Cal Performances, and Desdemona, a collaboration with the Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison, which had its U.S. premiere at the 2011 White Light Festival. Sellars has said that he considers this production of the St. Matthew Passion to be a life’s work for him, and he hopes to revisit it every two to three years.

 

Founded in 1882, the Berliner Philharmoniker is among the top orchestras in the world.  Led by Principal Conductor Simon Rattle since 1999, the Philharmoniker has received Grammy, Gramophone, Classical BRIT, and ECHO Klassic awards and frequently tours around the world. When Sir Simon Rattle took the orchestra’s helm, an education program was initiated to ensure that the Berliner Philharmoniker reaches a wider and younger audience. In November 2007, the orchestra and Sir Simon were appointed UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors, the first artistic ensemble ever to represent the international children’s organization. This commitment enabled the orchestra in January 2009 to launch its innovative Digital Concert Hall, which broadcasts the orchestra’s concerts live worldwide over the Internet. Visit: berliner-philharmoniker.de/en/.

 

Sir Simon Rattle has been chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker and artistic director of the Berlin Philharmonie since September 2002. He was twenty-five when he began his close association with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), initially as principal conductor and artistic adviser, then as music director. His tireless work and visionary artistic projects helped to turn the CBSO into one of the world’s top-ranking orchestras.  In the concert hall and opera house, Sir Simon’s extensive repertoire covers compositions ranging from the Baroque era to contemporary music. Rattle is also principal guest conductor of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and works with leading orchestras on both sides of the Atlantic. Of the many recordings he has made with the orchestra, several have received prestigious awards: all of these releases were recorded live at the Philharmonie. One of Sir Simon’s special passions is for bringing the work and music of the Berliner Philharmoniker to young people of the most diverse social and cultural backgrounds. In June 2010, Sir Simon Rattle was awarded a knighthood in the French Legion of Honour.

 

Part palace, part industrial shed, Park Avenue Armory fills a critical void in the cultural ecology of New York City by enabling artists to create—and audiences to experience—unconventional work that cannot be mounted in traditional performance halls and museums.  With its soaring 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall—reminiscent of 19th century European train stations—and array of exuberant period rooms, the Armory offers a new platform for creativity across all art forms.  Since its first production in September 2007—Aaron Young’s Greeting Card, a 9,216-square-foot “action” painting created by the burned-out tire marks of ten choreographed motorcycles—the Armory has  presented, commissioned and produced a series of immersive performances, installations, and works of art that have drawn critical and popular attention. Highlights include: Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s harrowing Die Soldaten, in which the audience moved “through the music;” the unprecedented six-week residency of the Royal Shakespeare Company in a replica of their own theater built in the drill hall; a massive digital sound and video environment by Ryoji Ikeda; a sprawling, gauzy, multisensory labyrinth created by Ernesto Neto; the event of a thread, a site-specific installation by Ann Hamilton; the final performances of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company across three separate stages; the New York Philharmonic performing Karlheinz Stockhausen’s sonic masterpiece Gruppen with three orchestras surrounding the audience; and WS, by Paul McCarthy, a monumental installation of fantasy, excess, and dystopia.  The Armory’s 2014 season includes a mix of presentations and commissions that break new ground for artists and audiences.  The season began in March with a series of intimate concerts by British indie band The xx, and also includes the U.S. premiere of Kenneth Branagh and Rob Ashford’s visceral staging of Macbeth; the second annual recital series in the Armory’s exquisitely renovated Board of Officers Room, Peter Sellars’ staging of Bach’s choral masterpiece St. Matthew Passion, a co-production with Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival; and the world premiere of the Amory’s sixth major visual art commission, a collaboration between artist Douglas Gordon and pianist Hélène Grimaud. More information on the season is available at armoryonpark.org.

The Washington Post hailed Colin Jacobsen as “one of the most interesting figures on the classical music scene.”  An eclectic composer who draws on a range of influences, he was named one of the top 100 composers under 40 by NPR listeners.  He is also active as an Avery Fisher Career Grant-winning soloist and a touring member of Yo-Yo Ma’s famed Silk Road Ensemble.  For his work as a founding member of two game-changing, audience-expanding ensembles - the string quartet Brooklyn Rider and orchestra The Knights - Jacobsen was recently selected to receive a prestigious United States Artists Fellowship. In 2005 he founded Brooklyn Rider with violinist Johnny Gandelsman, violist Nicholas Cords, and his brother, cellist Eric Jacobsen. Jacobsen’s work as a composer developed as a natural outgrowth of his chamber and orchestral collaborations.  Jointly inspired by encounters with leading exponents of non-Western traditions and by his own classical heritage, his writing reveals an eclectic personal voice.
