Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - August 13 2016


Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
August 13, 2016


The Mostly Mozart concert on Saturday began with La Sindone ("The Shroud"), by Arvo Part. Fortunately, it only lasted ten minutes. This is the type of avant-garde, dissonant sound that gives modern music a bad name. The first five minutes were blissfuly almost soundless followed by five minutes that can only be described as noise. The second work was the lovely Clarinet Concerto in A major, K.622, by Mozart, with a fine soloist Martin Frost. It was a delight to hear, but not a pleasure to watch. He is definitely a superb musician. However, Frost was in perpetual motion, turning left, and then right, constantly bending forward, and straightening up. He appeared to be like a puppet on a string. He granted the enthusiastic audience a short encore. The program concluded with a stirring interpretation of Symphony No. 4 in B-flat major, by Beethoven. The orchestra never played better, under the baton of Paavo Jarvi.


The next program  of Mostly Mozart was an interesting one. It featured three works by Mozart. It began with Symphony No. 1 in E-flat major, K.16, which Mozart wrote at the tender age of 8-years-old. It is a short piece lasting 13 minutes, but it reveals the amazing genius of the young prodigy. Piano Concerto No. 12 in A major, K.414, with the distinguished pianist Richard Goode, is not one of Mozart's better concertos, but it is pleasant, and Goode gave a fine interpretation of the piece. The program finished with, perhaps, Mozart's most magnificent Symphony No. 41 in C major, K.551. Thus we enjoyed his first and last symphonies. The orchestra, as always, played wonderfully, with Louis Langree conducting.




MoMA is presenting Gaumont: Cinema pour tout le monde until September 7. This series of French films will delight avid filmgoers. Pieges (Personal Column), by Robert Siodmak, France, 1939, is a murder mystery, starring Maurice Chevalier, as a wealthy cabaret owner, and a magnificent cast of characters. Young women keep disappearing in Paris. The charming Chevalier is a suspect. The police hire a beautiful taxi dancer to help them answer personal ads in the newspapers, and assist them in finding the murderer. The film has witty, intelligent dialogue, and Chevalier, in a serious role, finds time to sing two charming songs in his own inimitable style. The film is a delight from start to finish.


Oh! Que Mambo!, by John Berry, France/Italy.m1959, is a comedy about a chubby bank employee (Dario Moreno who was. apparently, a popular Turkish singer) and his domineering wife. A stuttering robber is caught trying to rob his bank by two bumbling detectives, and Moreno gets the credit. He celebrates alone in a night club, where the sexy entertainer invites him to join her on stage to sing the title song with her. Her sleazy manager persuades him that he will become a singing star. The story is so silly that it is not worth describing, and the 82-minute film is not worth seeing.


I attended a press event for All The Ways To Say I Love You, by Neil LaBute, a one-woman play starring Judith Light, directed by Leigh Silverman. I photographed the three of them. It will open the MCC Theater's 30th Anniversary Season at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, 131 Christopher St, on September 28. I eagerly await the opening night.
