In this talk about his multimedia exhibition Timothy Nohe will introduce American audiences to the deeply woven human narrative of Botany Bay, Australia. The artist reveals truths about this complex place through mural prints, video, sound, interviews, archival documents, and material culture. In many ways this story mirrors our American experience related to human stewardship, the colonization and the decimation of indigenous peoples, industrialization, national narratives, globalization, and climate change.

New York Nocturnes: The Apollo Trio

New York Nocturnes: The Apollo Trio
Thursday, March 3, 7:00 p.m.
Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall

This concert by the Apollo Trio centers on David Schiff’s lively and imaginative work, New York Nocturnes. Written in 2000, the work presents a series of nostalgic tableau of the composer’s youth in New York City. Cast in a form immediately recognizable as a work of classical chamber music, the musical language draws on jazz idioms from Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Cole Porter and others. An unusual mash­up of classical and jazz, New York Nocturnes is a work at once complex and toe-­tapping. The rest of the program includes pieces by the father of chamber music, Josef Haydn, and a brilliant, perfect, timeless masterpiece from Felix Mendelssohn, his Piano Trio No. 1, Op 49.
