Leonard Bernstein Centennial Finale Concert: 'Dybbuk' and 'Fancy Free' (World Premiere of New Orchestrations)

Jun 14 | Fri | 8PM |
View Website

LOST DOG NEW MUSIC ENSEMBLE marks the Finale of the Leonard Bernstein Centennial in New York City, with the world premiere of new orchestrations of Bernstein's ballet scores 'Dybbuk' and 'Fancy Free'. Fancy Free (1944), about three sailors on leave in New York City during World War II, is a sparkling touchstone of Bernstein's jazzy, populist style, and of a young composer eager to show off his tremendous talent. Dybbuk (1974) is one of Bernstein's last major works, and one of his greatest achievements as a composer. At turns eerie, wild, and savage, this ballet about thwarted love and demonic possession is inspired by Kabbalistic numerology. The virtuosic score is very rarely heard; this will be the only concert performance during the Bernstein Centennial.

Venue: The DiMenna Center for Classical Music
