New York Choral Society Presents 'Vive la France!' - St. Bartholomew’s Church
February 28, 2010 -

The New York Choral Society presents "Vive la France" on February 28 at St. Bartholomew's Church at 2:00PM. This program of lush choral music -- conducted under the baton of Music Director John Daly Goodwin -- will warm and comfort the senses, as it comprises works by two of France's most important composers of the twentieth century, Francis Poulenc's Quatre Petites Prières de Saint François d'Assise and Litanies à la Vierge Noire and Maurice Duruflé's Requiem.

Francis Poulenc was the leading member of Les Six, a group of French composers devoted to turning music away from Impressionism, formality, and intellectualism. The Litanies à la Vierge Noire for women's chorus and organ signaled a new phase in Poulenc's career, one marked by religious choral works of a mysterious, ethereal, and often moving nature. The work features a modal, chant-like style that avoids conventional cadences.

Maurice Duruflé is known for a small number of extraordinary works, among which the Requiem is perhaps the finest and most often performed. An organist as well as a composer, Duruflé originally wrote the Requiem for organ accompaniment, which is the version that New York Choral Society will perform.

Also on the afternoon program is an arrangement of Olivier Latry’s Salve Regina, performed by organist Renée Anne Louprette. One of the most accomplished organists of his generation, Olivier Latry is one of three titular organists at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris and Professor of Organ at the Conservatoire National Supérieur in Paris.

Celebration: The Birthday in Chinese Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through August 15, 2010 -

Birthday celebrations and concomitant themes of longevity are pervasive in Chinese art of the Ming and Qing dynasties. A recurring scene of a splendid reception at the residence of a wealthy family, represented in a lacquered screen, a set of embroidered hanging scrolls, and a porcelain vase, shows the eightieth birthday gathering for the Tang-dynasty general Guo Ziyi, a popular figure of long life, wealth, and honor. Longevity is also encoded in peaches, cranes, immortals, and flora and fauna of many kinds, sometimes forming sophisticated visual word play expressing wishes of long life for the honoree. The exhibition will draw together works in many media from the Museum's collection to illuminate these auspicious themes.
