The “take no prisoners” (Gramophone) Swiss ensemble Geneva Camerata makes its 92Y debut in this revolutionary, one-of-a-kind event, part of this year’s Inflection series.
Straying from the demeanor of a usual orchestra concert, choreographer, and dancer Juan Kruz Díaz de Garaio Esnaola has created dances for the entire orchestra to perform while playing the music from memory. On the first half of the program is a Suite drawn from Lully’s music for Molière’s legendary play The Bourgeois Gentleman, which satirizes both the pretensions of the middle class and the trappings of the aristocracy. After intermission, Mozart’s G Minor Symphony is transformed by Mr. Garaio Esnaola into a commentary on the nature of life, and of mortality.
