“Schubert & Solitude,” an evening of music, conversation, and art, will be held Friday, May 15, 8 p.m. at the Angel Orensanz Foundation for the Arts (172 Norfolk Street, below East Houston Street/between Essex and Suffolk Streets).
The event, which is free and open to the public, features Argentinean-born composer Osvaldo Golijov in conversation with Fred Child, radio host of National Public Radio’s “Performance Today.” It will also include the Knights chamber orchestra and string quartet Brooklyn Rider performing Golijov’s “She Was Here”-orchestral re-imaginings of four Schubert songs-as well as works by Beethoven, Philip Glass, and Charles Ives. Throughout the evening an art exhibition and the large-scale projection of composer portraits by Lennie Peterson will be on view.
This event is co-presented by the New York Institute for the Humanities, the Humanities Initiative at NYU, and In a Circle.
