"Сибирская Вечора" в Нью-Йорке

В следующий вторник, 19-го октября приглашаем жителей Нью-Йорка и ближайших окрестностей на единственный концерт красноярского коллектива народной песни «Сибирская Вечора». В репертуаре ансамбля песни общерусского фольклора, а также композиции, записанные на территории Красноярского края. Музыканты исполняют их в сопровождении традиционных народных музыкальных инструментов ‑ баяна, гармони, балалайки, гуслей, жалейки, часто с использованием современных аранжировок.

«Сибирская Вечора» впервые в США. Но за неполные две недели пребывания здесь в рамках программы «Открытый мир» ансамбль уже принял участие в фольклорном фестивале в г. Ричмонд, дал два концерта в Вашингтоне, а в ближайший четверг выступит в Балтиморе.

Нью-йоркская аудитория сможет услышать музыкантов  в клубе «DROM».  Начало выступления в 19:00. Концерт бесплатный, но желающие должны заранее зарегистрироваться на сайте организаторов вот здесь.

"Nothing is More Abstract than Reality"
One of the great benefits of living in New York is access to the greatest artistic and creative achievements of humankind.  This weekend presented an opportunity for nothing less than that -- an amazing exhibit of Giorgio Morandi, a rare opportunity to see his introspective, profound works "live".  

Year after year, decade after decade, he looked inward, only to find the transcendental, the timeless, the limitless.  Wars were fought, governments came and went, maps were redrawn, artists experimented and searched, and he continued to live with his three spinster sisters, and only wanted "peace and quiet" to do his work, to search for the higher truth hidden in the everyday objects.   "Nothing is more abstract than reality," Morandi is quoted to have said.  And so he meticulously and patiently rearranged bottles and vessels, to find the right light, the right combination, the right palette, and arrive at a point when depicted on a canvas, these objects, while absolutely recognizable, took on a mythical quality -- they no longer spoke of the trappings of everyday life or even the human condition, but of the timeless beauty, of the silence of the universe.  He pared away the superfluous like onion skins -- the emotional, the subjective, the transient -- to reveal the ultimate essence, where serenity rules, where understanding dawns. 

If I were to give a visual definition of the word "eternal", one of the works in the exhibition would be it.  This is true ART -- unconcerned with the current fashion or being au current, true only to itself, conscious of its higher purpose.

Всем Firefox users, кто многие годы за русскими буковками ходил в Translit.ru и т.п.
Уважаемый fentucci Alex "Беня" Benenson (город Нью-Йорк, benya.com) сделал примочку для Firefox, которая позволяет печатать удобной тебе кодировкой (мне привычней кодировка транслит.ру, но вариантов там с дюжину) в любое текстовое поле браузера. Переключая с английского на русский и назад кнопкой F2. Огромное спасибо, Alex!

Ycrop is proud to present: Alec Kopyt at Mehanata

Alec will perform with musicians of "Golem", a local klezmer band. DJ Spacedog spinning before & Mehanata resident DJ Uproot Andy after the show.

About the artist: Alec Kopyt's roots go back to Odessa, a port city where Russian, Jewish, Greek, and Romany cultures collided. Growing up among thieves, prostitutes and swindlers, he was exposed to various forms of street culture. He began playing accordion at the age of ten and became an expert in the traditional Jewish music. Authenticity, raw energy and powerful performance made Alec Kopyt a cult figure of underground scene in Europe. He is currently playing with Amsterdam Klezmer Band, and has an ongoing project, POZA, with Leonid Soibelman and various guest musicians.

Terem-Quartet on Sunday, October 28th 3pm at 92St Y
only New York appearance. Вкратце о группе: Очень интересный коллектив с абсолютно бездарным названием. Название "Валенки-Квартет" и то бы привлекло к ним больше внимания. Дядьки играют на народных инструментах, больше ничего в них лубочно-сусального нету. Назвались бы "Виртуозами Питера" и были бы правы, музыка у них сложная, изящная и местами весёлая. Это не та клюква какую на Брайтон возят. Загляните в YouTube, послушайте приложенные композиции, собирайте в охапку своих культурных родственников и приходите 28го.
