Film: National Gallery

Arthur Bell Auditorium

 National Gallery takes the audience behind the scenes of a London institution, on a journey to the heart of a museum inhabited by masterpieces of Western art from the Middle Ages to the19th century. National Gallery is the portrait of a place, its way of working and relations with the world, its staff and public, and its paintings. In a perpetual and dizzying game of mirrors, film watches painting watches film.

MAX GOMEZ
Friday, April 3, 2015 - 7:00 pm

MAX GOMEZ

Arthur Bell Auditorium
The most northern of the New Mexico pueblos, the hamlet of Taos, sits approximately 7,000 feet above sea level. It is an hour and half drive north of Santa Fe, or rather, just remote enough to stave off the casually curious person. Fiercely independent, the town, steeped in natural beauty, has long attracted artists and freethinkers of every stripe. It is within this bouillabaisse of nature, art and spirituality that we encounter Max Gomez. A young singer-songwriter in the seasoned vein of Jackson Browne and John Prine, Gomez grew up splitting his time between the sloping mountains of Taos and, for a period, the rolling plains of Kansas. On his family’s ranch in Kansas, Gomez still lends a hand with chores but relishes the time he can spend out on the lake practicing the art of fly-fishing. But it is in Taos, where he was ultimately inspired to explore his art and the ethos behind it. The son of an artisanal furniture craftsman, Gomez grew up watching his father, learning the tools of the trade while simultaneously learning his way around the frets of his guitar. The workmanlike quality of his songwriting carries over from his days spent in the woodshed through an economy of words, phrase and narrative. A blues enthusiast from an early age, the young Gomez immersed himself in the primordial Delta and traditional folk blues of Lead Belly, Big Bill Broonzy and, of course, Robert Johnson. Though 1,200 miles and decades removed from his Mississippi heroes, Gomez had his imagination to fill in the gaps. Having honed his chops on the blues, Max turned his interest to traditional American folk music; “I’m influenced by the old stuff,” Max admits. “To me, that’s the best music.” As the Harry Smith anthology gave way to contemporary masters Townes Van Zandt, Kris Kristofferson, Guy Clark and John Hiatt, so did Gomez’s songwriting. “The songs I write are not real straightforward. You have to decode them. I like when the listener has to create their own story, rather than be told what’s happening.” In short, storytelling that oscillates between everyman poetics and enigma. In the span of its ten songs, the Jeff Trott (Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow) produced Rule The World traverses varying themes of heartbreak, regret, young love, desperation and, ultimately redemption. “Run From You”, the album’s first single and co-written with Trott, reveals Max’s story telling skills. Gomez explains, “Sometimes I refer to this one as an anti-love song. We all come across trouble and often take the wrong road even when we know we should turn back.” With his smoky voice, Gomez sings of desperation for change on “Rule The World” and on “Never Say Never”, young love is likened to a “cool kiss in the August summer heat,” as the protagonist laments its fleeting nature. While the LP’s pop instincts are evident, Rule The World is balanced by Gomez’s love of roots music; see the blues-driven “Ball And Chain.” While many young artists write songs with the mere intention of entertaining the masses, Max’s songs are filled with the raw emotion and capture the spirit of those who came before him. In an age of ever increasing false fronts and posturing, it’s rare to catch a glimpse of a soul bared. But that is exactly what Gomez has done.

The Santa Fe Opera

The Santa Fe Opera

Arthur Bell Auditorium

 

The Harwood Museum of Art and the Santa Fe Opera are pleased to present
Written in the Stars
The musical pieces you will hear are Opera and Broadway favorites and include works by Berlin, Mozart, and Rossini

Story Adaptation: Kathleen Clawson, Kirt Pavitt, and Andrea Fellows Walters

Characters
Melody Abigail Mitchell, Soprano

Melody is a composer with writer's block
Webster is at various times her muse, foil, and lover

Melody is at work writing an opera and has reached a standstill. Webster appears and announces that he – and only he - with his gift for language, can help Melody. Melody initially brushes him off, finding him a distraction. Webster is not so easily deterred. They bicker and banter about which is more important in opera—the words or the music—and begin to fall in love.

The piece is intended to be a dramatic journey incorporating musical works that are familiar to all. Most of the works will be sung in English, however in choosing and setting the music every attempt has been made to honor the original intention of the piece.

Featured Works include passages from:
Vocalise – Sergei Rachmaninoff’
Largo al factotum, The Barber of Seville – Gioacchino Rossini

The Peter and Will Anderson Trio

Arthur Bell Auditorium

One of the most extraordinary duos in jazz performing today, the New York Times calls Peter and Will Anderson, “Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone.” At the young age of 15 they toured the United Kingdom, playing traditional jazz, swing and bebop. They attended Juilliard in New York City, and have performed with Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, Wycliffe Gordon and the Village Vanguard Orchestra. They’ve headlined at New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center, the New Orleans Jazz Fest, Sarasota FL Jazz Festival, South Carolina’s Jazz Corner, Seattle’s Triple Door, and Iowa’s Bix Beiderbecke Festival. Their debut recording of original compositions, Correspondence was listed by Vanity Fair magazine in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz.” The Anderson’s Trio recently released Reed Reflections, which the Washington Post calls “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz tunes.” In 2013, they produced and performed in an Off-Broadway jazz show, Le Jazz Hot, which broke box office sales and was nominated for a Drama Desk award. Peter and Will currently live in New York City, where they are busy performing, composing, and touring. www.PeterAndWillAnderson.com
