No one did more to define the American musical today than Harold “Hal” Prince. His resume included some of the most important titles of the past century: West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret, Company, Sweeney Todd, and Phantom of the Opera. In the Company of Harold Prince will explore Prince’s reinvention of musical theatre from the script- and score-based model created by Rodgers and Hammerstein and George Abbott to a more visual, almost cinematic art form in which the director is auteur. Prince acknowledged that fruitful collaboration is the foundation of theatrical genius, and this exhibition will illuminate the team of designers, stage managers, press agents, composers, and writers Prince assembled to create so many history-making shows. In addition to displaying original costumes, set models, and archival video, this exhibition borrows from the aesthetic of immersive theatre and invites visitors to pick up, examine, and interact with reproductions of documents and objects from the Library’s unparallelled collections. Opening soon, September 18, 2019 - March 31st, 2020.

Bill Wurtzel began playing guitar at age 9, and was a radio and TV country music performer by age 12. He attended art school and had a career as an award-winning advertising creative director. He continued to play professionally and switched to music full time in 1989. Bill has played worldwide with many jazz legends, including the Count Basie Countsmen, Wild Bill Davis, Bill Doggett, Jimmy McGriff, the Harlem Blues & Jazz Band, singers Gloria Lynne and Terri Thornton, as well as Paul Simon. Bill is a director of the Jazz Foundation of America. Jay Leonhart began his musical journey at the age of 7 on piano and percussions at the Peabody School of Music in Baltimore. At age 14, he chose the biggest instrument that he could find—the bass violin—and has since played with many of the major jazz musicians, big bands, pop singers, and jazz groups of this world. He has three times been voted the “Most Valuable Bassist in the Recording Industry.” Jay is known for his work with artists such as Jim Hall, Marian McPartland, Mel Torme, Maureen McGovern, Rosemary Clooney, Sting, and James Taylor, among others.

Vera Paints a Scarf celebrates the work of artist Vera Neumann (1907-1993) and her contributions to the field of American design. Neumann was among the most successful female design entrepreneurs of the 20th century, and an originator of the American lifestyle brand. Over the course of her career, which spanned from her label’s debut in 1942 to her death in 1993, Neumann produced an iconic line of women's scarves all signed with a cursive “Vera” and stamped with a ladybug, as well as thousands of textile patterns based on her drawings, paintings, and collages. This exhibition will be the first to comprehensively examine her career—and highlights the keys to her success: her joyful and inventive aesthetic, democratic design ethos, fusion of craft and mass production, and clever marketing.

New York Public Library for the Performing Arts

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center was launched a decade after the creation of Lincoln Center, on September 11, 1969, which happened to be on the birthday of the Chair of CMS’s board: Alice Tully. With its creation, the art of chamber music took its rightful place among orchestral music, opera, theater, dance, education, and the literary arts on the Lincoln Center campus. Composed initially of a distinguished roster of expert chamber artists, augmented by numerous guests from around the world, the Chamber Music Society quickly reached the highest level of critical acclaim and public popularity. While chamber music had been performed for years in other New York City venues, Lincoln Center’s new constituent institutionalized chamber music in a concert hall all its own, and embraced a long-term mission to ensure the wide-spread vitality of the art form. Since then, CMS has grown and thrived, and is now the largest global chamber music organization. More than 130 world-renowned musicians from 19 countries perform with CMS every season in New York and tour across four continents, presenting a comprehensive array of chamber music covering some 400 years, from the Baroque era to today. In addition, its wide variety of education programs and media activity reach an annually growing audience of enthusiastic listeners. This exhibition highlights the rich and diverse work of the organization.

Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

In a single decade, with works such as The Firebird and The Rite of Spring, Igor Stravinsky showed possibilities for musical extremism never before imagined. With bracing harmonies, infectious rhythms, and brilliant orchestration, everything that Stravinsky created in this fertile period stole the musical show of the era, and this trio arrangement of The Soldier’s Tale (Stravinsky’s own) introduced his wildly controversial music to the chamber music stage. Innovations abound in this milestone program: Beethoven’s Clarinet Trio (the first of its kind), Mendelssohn’s Songs Without Words (his own invention), and Smetana’s Piano Trio, the first major chamber work from the Bohemian region. Program: - Beethoven Trio in B-flat major for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano, Op. 11 (1797) - Stravinsky L'Histoire du soldat (The Soldier's Tale), Trio Version for Violin, Clarinet, and Piano (1918, arr. 1919) - Mendelssohn Selected Lieder ohne Worte (Songs Without Words) for Piano - Smetana Trio in G minor for Piano, Violin, and Cello, Op. 15 (1855, rev. 1857)
