Winterreise Festival: Theo Bleckmann

Dec 17, 2015 • 7pm

Five concerts, NS talk, community outreach on the theme of Schubert’s Winterreise (winter’s journey). NS approaches this seminal work by exploring the juxtaposition between isolation and community through 21st century sounds and visuals.

Theo Bleckmann and Uri Caine join forces in their own take of Winterreise featuring voice, toys, piano and electronica, along with new lyrics and harmonies in French, German, Yiddish, and English.

Free post-show talk

NS Curators Theo Bleckmann and Brandon Stosuy, (Director of Editorial Operations at Pitchfork and a Music Curator for MoMA/PS1)  will discuss the current state of the ‘album’ with Director of Artistic Planning, Courtenay Casey. Using the most popular ‘album’ of its day, Winterreise, as a jumping off point, this trio will discuss where we are today in its form.
