Shostakovich and the Black Monk - a Russian Fantasy

Tanglewood

Seiji Ozawa Hall Lenox MA

Artist & Program Information

Emerson Quartet
James Glossman, writer and director
David Strathairn, actor
Jay O. Sanders, actor


The Emerson String Quartet, accompanied by an ensemble of seven actors, weaves the tale of Dmitri Shostakovich's 50-year obsessive quest to create an opera from The Black Monk, Chekhov's theatrical chamber masterpiece about love, art, madness, and freedom.  Through music-including a complete performance of Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 14-supported by actors and multimedia projections, we see Shostakovich himself trying over decades to retell Chekhov's haunting and heroic story of a writer struggling for his sanity, only to be sidetracked again and again by the composer's own struggle to survive as an artist amid the ever-changing imperatives of Stalin's Soviet state.

Tanglewood Takes Flight:
A Celebration of Birds and Music with Mass Audubon

Tanglewood

Artist & Program Information

Tanglewood Takes Flight: A Celebration of Birds and Music with Mass Audubon, Tanglewood's multi-faceted, first-ever collaboration with Mass Audubon, stretches the idea of concert-going in a new direction for the Festival: the series will feature six guided bird walks/talks, the earliest of which will take place at 5:30 a.m. at Pleasant Valley, and five concerts, with three performances to take place as early as 7 a.m., in close proximity to the scheduled early morning bird walks. The bird walks will be partnered with music from Messiaen's Catalogue of the Birds, a monumental series of 13 piano pieces portraying the birds of Europe, to be performed by Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Piano Fellows of the Tanglewood Music Center at both Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary and Tanglewood (7/27-30).
