Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -August 8, 2015


 

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!

August 8, 2015

 
The 49th Mostly Mozart Festival continued with a program by three composers. It began with Jeremy Denk, alone at the piano, playing Chaconne in D minor for piano left hand, by Bach (trans. Brahms). He, then, was the soloist in Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K.466, by Mozart. He gave a superb performance, and the second movement was extremely beautiful. He received a thunderous ovation. The program concluded with Symphony No. 4 in E. minor, by Brahms, with Louis Langree conducting the orchestra in a rousing performance. It was another delightful night at Mostly Mozart.

 
Mostly Mozart presented the debuts of Cornelius Meister as conductor and Sol Gabetta as cello soloist in an exciting program of three works by different composers. After opening with a lively Overture to Le nozze di Figaro, by Mozart, Gabetta played the Cello Concerto in C Major, by Hadyn. She gave a skillful performance. The program ended with a splendid interpretation of Symphony No. 4 in B-flat major, by Beethoven. There is no better way to spend a summer night for classical music lovers than to attend a concert of Mostly Mozart.

 
The Second Mother (Que Hora Ela Volta), by Anna Muylaert, Brazil , 2014, is a wonderful film, starring Regina Case, in a brilliant performance as a housekeeper for a wealthy family in Sao Paolo. For years, she has cooked, cleaned and raised their son. Her grown up daughter, whom she has not seen for ten years, arrives to live with her. Her presence in the house causes many problems. It is a well acted, realistic film, showing class divisions between servants and their masters. It is certainly one of the finest films of the year.

 
A superb exhibition Sinatra: An American Icon is on display at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. With it, films are being shown in the Bruno Walter Auditorium. Tony Rome, by Gordon Douglas, USA, 1967, stars Frank Sinatra as a hard boiled private investigator, and he does a fine job in a serious role, as he searches for a missing diamond pin. He is supported by an excellent cast, with good looking female stars, like Jill St. John, Gena Rowlands and Sue Lyon. It is a very entertaining film, with snappy, funny dialogue.

Legendary pianist and composer Irving Fields celebrated his 100th birthday with family and fans at Nino's Tuscany Steakhouse, 117 West 58th St, where he plays at night Wednesday to Saturday. He is one of the most entertaining and delightful musicians in New York. He drank his nightly vodka martini, with three olives. He maintains that is his key to longevity.

 
Hamilton opened on Broadway at the Richard Rogers Theatre. I photographed the arrivals. Among the opening night guests were Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Diane Sawyer, Rosie O'Donnell and many  others too numerous to mention. The opening night party was held at Chelsea Piers with fireworks.

 
MoMA is presenting Glorious Technicolor: From George Eastman House and Beyond June 5-August 5. Lady in the Dark, by Mitchell Leisen, USA, 1944, stars Ginger Rogers as the editor of a fashion magazine. She is suffering mental depression, and the highlight of the film are her three dream sequences. In the final one, she sings The Saga of Jenny, from the musical, on which the film is based. It is a wonderful song, and she performs it excellently. Otherwise, it is a weak film, about her having to make a decision to marry one of two men. She ends up making a surprising choice. 

 
Artists and Models, by Frank Tashlin, USA, 1955, stars Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. I have never seen a Martin and Lewis film before. I believe it is an acquired taste. I do not have it. Dean Martin is good looking and sings well. Jerry Lewis makes weird faces, and engages in a lot of physical activity. None of which is funny. The film is silly, and the plot makes very little sense.  Martin is a painter, and Lewis is a writer obsessed with comic books. He dreams about the stories and says them out loud repeatedly. It is annoying and irritating. I guess one must be French to appreciate Jerry Lewis.

 
MoMA presented Mexico at Midnight: Film Noir from Mexican Cinema's Golden Age July 23-29. Crepusculo (Twilight), by Julio Bracho, Mexico, 1945, stars Arturo de Cordova as a surgeon in love with the wife (Gloria Marin) of his best friend. It is a slow moving, psychological drama, that maintains the viewer's attention. When Cordova is forced to perform surgery on a brain injury his friend suffers, we await the result. Again, Cordova has a beautiful co-star Marin, a joy to watch.
