The World of Captain Beefheart Featuring Gary Lucas and Nona Hendryx - The Cutting Room
April 25, 2019 - New York

Legendary Funk Rock Diva Nona Hendryx and acclaimed avant-guitarist Gary Lucas perform a tribute to visionary composer, bandleader, poet and painter Don Van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart, who single-handedly changed the face of music, beginning with a series of ground-breaking albums with his Magic Band from 1967's "Safe as Milk" to 1969's hallucinatory "Trout Mask Replica" through 1982' "Ice Cream for Crow." Beefheart's music combines Delta blues, free-jazz and proto-punk rock with surreal imagery, ecological concerns, and the highest and airiest of wit, a sound which proved highly influential on the first wave of punk avatars (including John Lydon, Joe Strummer, and David Byrne) and many other seminal artists (David Lynch, Ed Ruscha, Julian Schnabel, and Matt Groening). On stage and on record Van Vliet explored musical and lyrical territory never before charted in the confines of a traditional electric band line-up before devoting himself full-time to painting, garnering a loyal worldwide fan base in the process.

Over 10,000 concerts and 200 television shows throughout more than 3 million miles - with the band and as a solo performer - John has pursued his passion for performing and recording.

Mendelssohn the Prodigy - Brooklyn Museum, Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor
April 28, 2019 - Prospect Heights

Felix Mendelssohn was already recognized as a child prodigy when he composed his Octet for Strings, one his best known and most frequently performed works, at the age of 16. In this program, the Octet for Strings is paired with another work composed in the early years of Mendelssohn's prolific career, the rarely heard Violin Concerto in D Minor. Written when Mendelssohn was only 13, the obscure work was "rediscovered" in the early 1950s when the manuscript was presented by the Mendelssohn family to Yehudi Menuhin, who quickly published and recorded the work. The Violin Concerto in D Minor is firmly rooted in the three-movement Classical concerto form, beginning with an anxious, dramatic opening Allegro movement balanced by the warmth of the second Andante movement and the forward-thrust of the Allegro finale. Together, the Octet for Strings and the Violin Concerto in D Minor showcase the depth of the young Mendelssohn's extraordinary talent.
