Mark Morris, the “Mozart of modern dance” (Washington Post), returns to the festival with a new dance work commissioned by Lincoln Center that illuminates the playful tapestry of sound of Satie’s Sports et divertissements. Then comes the “remarkable fantasy” of Empire Garden (Times, U.K.), an exploration of Ives’s lyrical—and at times, whimsical—Piano Trio. The performance culminates in a Morris masterwork, V, a triumphant and virtuosic piece set to Schumann’s exuberant piano quintet.
Pre-performance talk with Mark Morris and Jane Moss on Thursday, July 11 at 6:15 pm in the Agnes Varis and Karl Leichtman Studio
