Stockbridge, MA–Luigi Pirandello’s “Naked” @ berkshire theatre group--unicorn theatre
Sep 27 @ 7:00 pm

“How could I invent you if you didn’t exist?”  Hailed as one of the great playwrights of all-time, Nobel Prize-winner Luigi Pirandello’s Naked,  delves deep into the struggle of self-identity, and the tendency to skew reality to benefit desires of the heart. . Naked follows the story of a woman, in the midst of questioning her existence, as the men around her impose their view of her into the world.  Stated in Nobel Lectures, “Pirandello’s characters attempt to fulfil their self-seeking roles and are defeated by life itself which, always changing, enables them to see their perversity. This is Pirandello’s humor, an irony which arises from the contradictions inherent in life.”

“A Tribute to Wanda Landowska”—Music by Froberger and Louis and François Couperin

World-renowned Polish harpsichordist Wladyslaw Klosiewicz comes to Lakeville CT, former home of the visionary performer Wanda Landowska, to play works by Johann Jakob Froberger, Louis Couperin and Francois Couperin.
The harpsichord was one of the most popular Baroque keyboard instruments. Its plucked strings have a rich sound, whose clarity informs the complex contrapuntal texture of Baroque music. Almost every baroque composer wrote for the harpsichord! The 17th century keyboard virtuoso Johann Jakob Froberger was the first composer writing titled, descriptive pieces for the harpsichord. He influenced his contemporaries, among them the French composer Louis Couperin and his famous nephew, François Couperin. The harpsichord suffered a long period of neglect through all of the 19th century.
