Dawn Upshaw and Gilbert Kalish

Monday, Sept. 29, 2014

A three-time Grammy Award winner, the American soprano Dawn Upshaw has achieved worldwide celebrity as a singer of opera and concert repertoire ranging from the sacred works of Bach to the freshest sounds of today. Her ability to reach to the heart of music and text has earned her both the devotion of an exceptionally diverse audience and the awards and distinctions accorded to only the most distinguished of artists. In 2007, she was named a Fellow of the MacArthur Foundation, the first vocal artist to be awarded the five-year “genius” prize, and in 2008 she was named a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. She will perform accompanied by another American world-class artist, the pianist Gilbert Kalish. His discography of some 100 recordings encompasses classical repertory, 20th Century masterworks and new compositions. Together, Upshaw and Kalish will perform a repertoire representative of their over a decade-long collaboration.

Salzburg Marionette Theater with Orion Weiss, pianist

Thursday, Nov. 6, 2014

The brilliant American pianist Orion Weiss teams up with the renowned Salzburg Marionette Theater to present a magical evening, culminating with Debussy's La Boîte à Joujoux ("The Toy Box"). The Salzburg Marionette Theater is one of the last remaining full-time professional marionette theaters in Europe. It contributes decisively to maintaining this special art form based on the tradition of creating lifelike figures on the stage, giving the audience the illusion of watching real people. The perfect constructions of the figures and the countless technical inventions have made the Salzburg Marionette Theater a leading representative of the art. The fine expressive detail in the sculptured heads, the meticulous tailoring of the costumes and the impeccable construction of the stage-sets all combine to produce outstanding performances.
