New York City, July 7, 2014 (McKenzieNewsService.com) -
IMPACT, the Interactive Multimedia Performing Arts
Collaborative Technology Conference held each Summer at New York University
(NYU), presents a week-long series of multimedia concert performances of Franz
Schubert's song cycle "Winterreise"
from August 4th through 9th, at 8 PM, in the Black Box Theatre on 82 Washington
Square East in New York City.
The New York Concert Opera performances, titled "Die Winterreise" and presented
in the order of the original poems by Wilhelm Mueller, are sung by
German-American baritone, Ulrich Hartung, and accompanied by a chamber ensemble
consisting of piano, viola, cello, woodwind and brass players in an arrangement
by Stefan Kozinski, a New York composer/conductor currently at Bremen Opera, who
will be leading the ensemble. The dramatized performances are semi-staged with
multimedia and presented in three parts lasting about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
It is commonly acknowledged that the poet's order provides a more dramatic,
linear sequence to the "Winterreise" cycle, and the NY Concert Opera
performances try to highlight that fact. The song cycle is to be presented in
three parts - Past, Present, Future - with an instrumental introduction and
interludes making the entire piece, an organic whole. The players will join the
singer in dramatizing the songs, while images relevant to mood and themes are
projected to make the event a multimedia experience.
