BWW Review: To the Genius of Oscar Levant - FOR PIANO AND HARPO at Falcon TheatreBWW Review: To the Genius of Oscar Levant - FOR PIANO AND HARPO at Falcon Theatre

Levant was a concert pianist, and contemporary of George Gershwin, whose genius gave him entree into the glittering worlds of classical music, Broadway, and Hollywood but whose private demons ultimately undermined his career. The play explores Levant's addictions and mental health issues while committed to a Mt. Sinai psych ward in 1956, on the Jack Paar Show in 1962, and during an extended stay at the home of his friend, Harpo Marx, in 1935. (more...)

Marilyn McCoy Presents Pre-Concert Lecture, 1/6Marilyn McCoy Presents Pre-Concert Lecture, 1/6
by BWW News Desk - Dec 12, 2016

Marilyn L. McCoy completed her doctorate at the University of Chicago with a dissertation entitled 'Gustav Mahler's Path to the New Music: Musical Time and Modernism.' Her research explores the ways in which Mahler evokes a sense of timelessness in his music, a compositional strategy which plays an important part in many of the songs on this program. Professor McCoy is much in demand as a concert lecturer. She has had a long association with the MahlerFest in Boulder, Colorado, where she has served as pre-concert lecturer and symposium participant since 2002. In February 2012 she gave several lectures at Disney Hall as part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic's 'Mahler Project,' led by Gustavo Dudamel. She has spoken at Carnegie Hall and the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center, and at the Bard Festivals 'Berg and His World' (2010) and 'Mahler and His World' (2002). Other speaking engagements include lectures for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Berkshire Choral Festival, and the Ravinia Festival of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Though primarily a 'Mahler scholar,' she served as Assistant Archivist at the Arnold Schoenberg Institute in Los Angeles for the last 3 years of its existence (1995-98). She is presently at work on a translation of the correspondence between Alma Mahler and Arnold Schoenberg. (more...)
