Works & Process at the Guggenheim Presents
Wuorinen at 70
Sunday and Monday, November 2 and 3, 2008 at 7:30pm




Celebrating Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Charles Wuorinen's 70th birthday, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents an all Wuorinen program with Boston Symphony Orchestra and Metropolitan Opera Music Director James Levine conducting Ashberyana, Wuorinen's setting of John Ashbery poems with members of the Brentano String Quartet, James Pugh, Sarah Rothenberg and Leon Williams. Works & Process commissions Sean Curran to choreograph The Mission of Virgil, inspired by scenes from Dante's Inferno, with members of the Sean Curran Dance Company accompanied by Metropolitan Opera pianists Linda Hall and Howard Watkins.  Sarah Rothenberg moderates a discussion. A reception with the artists in the museum’s Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda follows.

Works & Process
For over 23 years and in over 300 productions, Works & Process at the Guggenheim has been a pioneer in creating ground-breaking and carefully crafted programs which provide unprecedented access to today’s leading performing artists. Each program uniquely blends performance and discussion among creative collaborators and explores the creative process. Works & Process has a long history of commissioning and fully producing original works. Described by The New York Times as "a popular series devoted to shedding light on the creative process," by The Village Voice as "revelatory," and by New York Magazine as "illuminating," Works & Process is produced by Mary Sharp Cronson.

Lead funding for Works & Process is provided by The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation with additional support from The Brown Foundation, Inc., of Houston, Geoffrey C. Hughes Foundation, Christian Humann Foundation, Leon Levy Foundation, Rockefellers Brothers Fund, Inc., Louisa Sarofim and The Evelyn Sharp Foundation.
