Live From Lincoln Center

Odyssey: The Chamber Music Society in Greece

In 2015, Live From Lincoln Center went on location to Kentucky’s Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS) to produce the acclaimed Simple Gifts, the first program outside of New York City in its series history. Now, the two institutions reunite once again, traveling abroad for Live From Lincoln Center’s first production outside the U.S., with support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). The broadcast also contains another milestone – the CMS concert at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) marks the center’s first presentation of a U.S. musical organization. Artists of the Chamber Music Society, led by its artistic directors, David Finckel and Wu Han, embark on this multifaceted, visually striking musical journey to the country where so many of the classical arts were first developed. The core of the adventure is the unique intimacy of chamber music performances in extraordinary places, while highlighting the Greek cultural influences that still resonate within our language, arts, philosophy, and civic life.

Airing on PBS

Check your local listings. Major support for this episode is provided by The Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

¡Vaya! 63: Bobby Sanabria

Led by renowned percussionist composer, arranger, and educator Bobby Sanabria, the 21-piece multi-Grammy-nominated Multiverse Big Band has been hailed by Downbeat magazine as a "force of nature." Uniquely known for its versatility, the orchestra can seamlessly transition from complex concert repertoire to swinging big-band dance music. On the heels of the Grammy-nominated West Side Story Reimagined double CD, Bobby Sanabria and his Multiverse Big Band will pay tribute to the mecca of all Latin dance halls, the legendary Palladium Ballroom, where the fusion of big-band mambo with jazz reigned supreme. Kick off the fifth season of ¡VAYA! 63, the Atrium’s popular Latin dance party, with this stellar band.

Presented in collaboration with the NYU Music and Social Change Lab

David Rubenstein Atrium

Atrium 360°: Jazztopad Festival NYC

Explore the newest music in today’s jazz scene at the renowned Polish jazz festival, Jazztopad. Tonight’s performance will feature an original work by Amir ElSaffar, an Atrium alum and classically trained trumpet player who developed his artistic language by combining jazz with the aesthetics derived from traditional music of the Middle East. ElSaffar’s new piece “Ahwaal”—or "states of consciousness," an important concept in Sufism—fuses the microtonal resonances of Iraqi maqam with a subtle nod to Beethoven’s late quartets. For this special engagement, ElSaffar is joined by Polish artists Ksawery Wójcinski, Waclaw Zimpel, and the Lutoslawski Quartet.

Presented in collaboration with Jazztopad
