Winterize will begin at Magnolia Plaza, at 11:30 AM in front of the sundial. Note that admission to the garden is free before noon, and thus this event is free. 1000 Washington Avenue is the closest street number to the meet-up spot.
He released a video highlight of the performance, which is appropriately dubbed Winterize, since it's performed outside in the cold New York winter, the piece reimagines Schubert's WINTERREISE for baritone and transistor radios.
Performed in collaboration with Make Music New York, the audience holds the accompaniment playing through the radios as they walk through the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Along the way, they pass through locations that reflect the imagery of Wilhelm Müller’s poetry and Schubert’s music.
The piano accompaniment was recorded by Timothy Long and reimagined by sound designer Jonathan Zalben. The production was directed by JJ Hudson. This year’s performance also featured twenty-four new, illustrated German-to-English supertitles by Italian artist Irene Rinaldi.
On January 6th, you can catch Herbert with the Brooklyn Art Song Society in a performance of Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn. Tickets are available online.
