Eventbrite - Harvard at the Cincinnati Symphony

HCC Director and CSO Harpist Gillian Sella has arranged a special evening at Music Hall for HCC members and guests! At the much-anticipated final Symphony performance of the regular season, join Gillian and the Board of Directors in the Critics Corner an hour before the concert for a private reception. We have a block of seats in the balcony where we can enjoy listening for Gillian’s expansive contribution to Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy. Please join us!

BERLIOZ: King Lear Overture
BRUCH: Scottish Fantasy
PROKOFIEV: Suite from Romeo and Juliet

“Nicola Benedetti, the 20-something Scottish sensation of Italian heritage, plays Bruch’s delightful fantasy on Scottish folk tunes, music that will leave you humming tunes like “Scots Wha Hae” (which once served as the unofficial national anthem of Scotland), “Auld Rob Morris” and “The Dusty Miller.” The rising young conductor James Gaffigan returns by popular demand to conduct two works inspired by the Bard, as part of the CSO’s Shakespeare for your Ear focus throughout the Masterworks Series. Our star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, are brought to life in dramatic vignettes by the CCM Drama Department.”

Note: If you are already a ticket holder, please stop by the Critics Corner to meet Gillian!

Thursday, May 1, 2014. The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck.

 Editorial Review:

In awarding John Steinbeck the 1962 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Nobel committee stated that with "The Winter of Our Discontent," he had “resumed his position as an independent expounder of the truth, with an unbiased instinct for what is genuinely American.”  Ethan Allen Hawley, the protagonist of Steinbeck’s last novel, works as a clerk in a grocery store that his family once owned. With Ethan no longer a member of Long Island’s aristocratic class, his wife is restless, and his teenage children are hungry for the tantalizing material comforts he cannot provide.  Then one day, in a moment of moral crisis, Ethan decides to take a holiday from his own scrupulous standards.  Set in Steinbeck’s contemporary 1960 America, the novel explores the tenuous line between private and public honesty that today ranks it alongside his most acclaimed works of penetrating insight into the American condition.

Thursday, June 5, 2014. Thinking the Twentieth Century,by Tony Judt and Timothy Snyder.

Review:

Tony Judt's death last year was not only a personal tragedy but a public disaster, for he was one of the finest contemporary historians of ideas, and in this dark time we can ill-afford his loss.  "Thinking the Twentieth Century," a series of dialogues with the historian Timothy Snyder, is a triumphant conclusion to Judt's invaluable work.  A magnificent achievement in intellectual history, "Thinking the Twentieth Century" is also the true last testament of one of the twentieth century's greatest writers on politics.  Timothy Snyder's initiative has prompted a sparkling dialogue which, through following the stages of Tony Judt's life and emergence as an exceptional historian, offers important reflections on major currents of political thinking in the 20th century.  That this book exists at all is remarkable.  The parts in which Judt relates the themes of the book to his own life are particularly rich because they show how what we think can be a product of what we are.  There is much brilliance here to enjoy, almost as if you were a guest at a wonderful dinner party where two of the company suddenly hold forth on everything from Vienna in 1900 to the Iraq war.  The best kind of book:  where you discover both what the authors intended and what they did not.  Brilliant to the bitter end, Tony Judt was combative and razor-sharp even as he was dying.  A moving, enlightening and provocative read.  It is impossible not to marvel at the dying man's extraordinary mental recall and moral integrity.  To listen to his thoughts is to hear the smooth, confident purr of a Rolls-Royce engine.  At the end of the book it is hard to banish a profound sense of loss.  Though he was better known in New York than London, Judt was one of the foremost British historians of his generation.  This book, bristling with learning, is a staggering achievement. 

About the Author

Tony Judt (1948–2010) was the author or editor of fifteen books, including "The Memory Chalet and Postwar," which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.  He was the director and founder of the Remarque Institute and a professor at New York University.
