Leonard Bernstein’s centenary is being celebrated by orchestras, opera companies, museums, book publishers, and arts organizations around the world.
This weekend at CSUN, the troupe Keigwin + Company will dance two world premieres set to Bernstein compositions: SONATA (based on the composer’s Sonata for Clarinet and Piano), and THREE PLUS ONE (from Piano Trio).
Also on the bill (both from 2014) are EPISODES—which draws from Bernstein’s music for On the Town—and WATERFRONT, a piece based on his work for Elia Kazan’s On the Waterfront, Bernstein’s only score written for a Hollywood studio.
