The Mark Morris Dance Group are skilled dancers and fabulous performers. They will perform at Tanglewood on August 5 and 6 2009, at 8:00 PM, very near our Massachusetts Bed and Breakfast. Joining them will be Emanuel Ax on the piano, Colin Jacobsen on the violin, and Yo-Yo Ma on the cello. The trio will play Haydn’s Horn Concerto No. 2 as the dancers perform “A Lake.” The world premier of “Visitation” will be performed to Beethoven’s Sonata No. 4 in C for cello and Piano, Op. 102, No. 1., and “Candleflowerdance” will be accompanied by Stravinsky’s Serenade in A for piano. Finally, the world premier of “Empire Gardens” will be danced to Ives Trio for piano, violin and cello.
It is a great honor for Tanglewood to be the site of two world premiers by Mark Morris. This talented choreographer from Seattle has created works for ballets and operas around the world. Yet perhaps it is no surprise that he chose the Tanglewood Festival to unveil two new performances; he is known for his musicality, and according to the Tanglewood website, “has been described as undeviating in his devotion to music.”
We at our Bed and Breakfast Lenox, MA are thrilled that the Mark Morris Dance Group will be at Tanglewood this August. We look forward to the performance.
