The Classical Style
Jeremy Denk, a 2013 MacArthur Fellow, is pianist and librettist in this concert that features the eagerly awaited New York premiere of Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Steven Stucky’s opera The Classical Style. Inspired by Charles Rosen’s famous musicological work of the same name, Stucky and Denk have created an opera buffa where chords are characters sharing the stage with Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and, as Denk describes, “several unnecessary characters.” With absurd humor and great music, The Classical Style is sure to surprise and delight.
The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
