Late Masterworks Mozart & Bruckner

Walt Disney Concert Hall

111 S. Grand Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90012

11:00am

Mozart, of course, did not know that the sublime B-flat Piano Concerto would be his last, but it did take him nearly three years to complete and is one of his most personal. Bruckner, however, did seem to have some premonition that the Ninth Symphony would be his last. The retrospective Adagio, on which he worked for most of his last two years, includes recollections of themes from three of his earlier works. He hoped to write a finale for the Ninth, but it hardly seems incomplete, floating away serenely with the Adagio after nearly an hour of musical struggle and triumph.

Come for: Final thoughts and grand achievements in Mozart’s last piano concerto and Bruckner’s magnificent unfinished symphony.

The Wilson Exercises

REDCAT

631 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

12:00pm

REDCAT presents The End of Summer: The Wilson Exercises, a duo exhibition with newly created work by Anna Craycroft and Marc Vives, guest-curated by the curatorial office Rivet. Developed during an ongoing, multi-year research project called The Wilson Exercises, the exhibition marks the first presentation of the artists in Los Angeles. 

 

 

The Wilson Exercises is a framework in which the artists and the curators have shared materials and research since fall 2012. The End of Summer is the first iteration of this research in exhibition format. The project suspends the pressure of finite outcome and deals with shared method and productive process, without clear distinctions between doing, making and showing.

Latin American Art at LACMA

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

3:00pm

1968, 104 minutes, color, 16mm | Directed by Jules Dassin; Blacklisted noir director Jules Dassin (The Naked City, Rififi) made a bold return to American filmmaking with this seldom-seen thriller that transposes John Ford’s classic film The Informer to Cleveland in the tense days after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Julian Mayfield plays Tank, an unemployed steelworker-turned-revolutionary who starts to unravel after his confidante, Johnny (Max Julien, The Mack himself), goes into hiding after a weapons heist gone wrong. Mayfield cowrote the script with Dassin and acting legend Ruby Dee, and veteran cinematographer Boris Kaufman (On the Waterfront) works in both expressive chiaroscuro and brightly lit realism. Other contributions include the only film score ever written by Memphis soul legends Booker T. and the M. G.’s, and Theoni V. Aldredge’s atmospheric costumes. The cast includes a wealth of African American talent, many appearing early in their film careers, including Raymond St. Jacques, Roscoe Lee Browne, and Janet MacLachlan.

Your ticket also includes admission to Taxi Driver.
