  • Cost: Free

  • Description: Duke's summer course, Capturing the City: Documentary Photography in Berlin, pushed students to immerse themselves fully in one of Europe's most dynamic capital cities.

Project fieldwork sites included Tempelhof airfield-a Nazi-era airport made famous during the 1948-1949 Berlin Airlift and now used as a public park and reception center for refugees-as well as the U-Bahn, Berlin's subway system. Students also wrote fictional short stories based on vintage photographs purchased at Berlin flea markets and met with Berlin-based documentary photographers and writers. The exhibition includes work by students Rachel Corr, Dai Li, Ellen Liew, Barbara McHugh, Iliana Sun, Genevieve Valladao, Katlyn Walther, Wenqin Wang, and Deanna White; as well as Gesche Wuerfel - who teaches at UNC-Chapel Hill, Grace Farson, a recent John Hope Franklin award winner, and class instructor, Christopher Sims.

Reception: Friday, January 13, 2017, 5-8pm Refreshments will be served. ___ What do you hear? "Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent" explores how artists navigate the depths of sound experience. Here, protest, politics, and dissent are embodied in digital sound files. Broadcasted, they defy the transient nature of sound - only inasmuch as a single file can be replayed. Through repetition something happens. Does one really hear the same thing twice? From podcast to experimental audio, each artist captured, molded, manipulated, mediated, or composed sound into a document. The works embrace environment|climate change, diaspora|e/im/migration, incarceration|torture, and memory|trauma, deepening auditory perceptions. Artists include: James Andean, Meira Asher, John Bechtold, Felecia Chizuko Carlisle and Valerie George, Christopher DeLaurenti, Ursula Handleigh, Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyê¿n, Michelle Jaffé, Kapwani Kiwanga, Lal, Jack Loeffler, Jonna McKone, Murr, Mendal Polish, Post Commodity, Tullis Rennie, Simone and Max, Brian Spies, Kirsten Stolle, Hong-An Truong, Karen Werner, and Gregory Whitehead. **Please note the Power Plant Gallery hours*** Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 11am-6pm Wednesday: 11am-1:30pm Closed Sunday & Monday

  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: CDS Front Desk
  • Description: Duke's summer course, Capturing the City: Documentary Photography in Berlin, pushed students to immerse themselves fully in one of Europe's most dynamic capital cities. They interpreted scenes of cultural life, public spaces, landscapes, and people. Project fieldwork sites included Tempelhof airfield-a Nazi-era airport made famous during the 1948-1949 Berlin Airlift and now used as a public park and reception center for refugees-as well as the U-Bahn, Berlin's subway system. Students also wrote fictional short stories based on vintage photographs purchased at Berlin flea markets and met with Berlin-based documentary photographers and writers. The exhibition includes work by students Rachel Corr, Dai Li, Ellen Liew, Barbara McHugh, Iliana Sun, Genevieve Valladao, Katlyn Walther, Wenqin Wang, and Deanna White; as well as Gesche Wuerfel - who teaches at UNC-Chapel Hill, Grace Farson, a recent John Hope Franklin award winner, and class instructor, Christopher Sims.

  • Description: Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent January 10-February 18, 2017 A Broadcast Audio Exhibit at the Power Plant Gallery featuring work by local, national, and international artists. Reception: Friday, January 13, 2017, 5-8pm Refreshments will be served. ___ What do you hear? "Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent" explores how artists navigate the depths of sound experience. Here, protest, politics, and dissent are embodied in digital sound files. Broadcasted, they defy the transient nature of sound - only inasmuch as a single file can be replayed. Through repetition something happens. Does one really hear the same thing twice? From podcast to experimental audio, each artist captured, molded, manipulated, mediated, or composed sound into a document. The works embrace environment|climate change, diaspora|e/im/migration, incarceration|torture, and memory|trauma, deepening auditory perceptions. Artists include: James Andean, Meira Asher, John Bechtold, Felecia Chizuko Carlisle and Valerie George, Christopher DeLaurenti, Ursula Handleigh, Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyê¿n, Michelle Jaffé, Kapwani Kiwanga, Lal, Jack Loeffler, Jonna McKone, Murr, Mendal Polish, Post Commodity, Tullis Rennie, Simone and Max, Brian Spies, Kirsten Stolle, Hong-An Truong, Karen Werner, and Gregory Whitehead. **Please note the Power Plant Gallery hours*** Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 11am-6pm Wednesday: 11am-1:30pm Closed Sunday & Monday

  • Location: Duke North, Room 2002 , Duke University Hospital
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Lunch provided at NOON Talk begins at 12:10pm Over the past century, death has become dying - a prolonged phase of life rather than a singular event. Yet the extensive public discussion around this topic has often failed to take into account the existence of beauty at the end of life. As patients and their families struggle amidst what is often a jarring and lonely experience, learning to attend to the presence of beauty can help patients, caretakers, and health professionals achieve a meaningful end. Haider Warraich is a fellow in cardiovascular medicine at Duke University Medical Center and the author of the upcoming book, Modern Death - How Medicine Changed the End of Life (St Martin's/Macmillan, Feb 2017). He is a regular Op Ed contributor for the New York Times, as well as the Atlantic, Guardian, Wall Street Journal and LA Times amongst others. He has also contributed to publications including the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, Lancet and Circulation. He has appeared on CNN, Fox, CBS, PBS, and on NPR shows like the Diane Rehm Show, The World, Marketplace and the BBC World Service.

  • Location: John Hope Franklin Center Room 240 -- Ahmadieh Family Conference Hall , Ahmadieh Family Conference Hall
  • Contact: Rowland, Taylor
  • Description: Dr. Yih-Ren Lin from Taipei Medical University in Taiwan will speak about indigenous peoples' traditional ecological knowledge and its struggling existence with Taiwan government's nature conservation policy. He also touches upon the issue of transformative justice and Taiwan's historical truth seeking expressed through Taiwan president's apology to indigenous peoples on 1 August, 2016. The wind-fallen beech incident in 2005 is the case to show Taiwan's indigenous natural history and related local knowledge is undermined by the modern nature conservation government's policy. The current government's policy is much influenced by the early international trend on nature-people dichotomy. Under these circumstances, the indigenous traditional use of natural resources is heavily prohibited by the conservation laws. From the participatory process, Dr. Lin argues the indigenous ecological knowledge that embodies their delicate interaction with the environment materially and metaphysically is a challenge to the nature-people dichotomy of the modern nature conservation policy thinking. This revelation of indigenous truth might be continued by the action of Taiwan president's apology and more hidden indigenous stories will be told to justify the value of indigenous ecological knowledge in terms of nature conservation.

  • Location: None
  • Cost: FREE
  • Contact: Benham, Michelle
  • Description: Directed by Roger Ross Williams 2015 / US / 91 minutes At the age of three, Owen Suskind stopped talking; he was later diagnosed with autism. Owen's parents tried to converse with him for years without success, until the day his father picked up a toy puppet and spoke to him in the voice of one of Owen's favorite Disney characters. Squawking like the parrot Iago from Aladdin, he asked, "What's it like to be you?" Owen answered with a line from the film. Life, Animated revisits this pivotal time in Owen's childhood, and the way the Suskinds turned his treasured Disney films into a language of love. Owen, now in his 20s, is forging ahead, moving into his own apartment, falling in love, and planning for his future. Original drawings based on Owen's own writing and excerpts from animated classics like Bambi, Peter Pan, and Dumbo, are woven through a series of interviews to underscore these trying periods and poignant moments. This film is a luminous testament to one family's determination to communicate, and reveals the powerful ways in which even the most far away characters can capture our innermost feelings.

  • Location: White 107 (White Lecture Hall)
  • Cost: Free and open to the public.
  • Contact: Okazaki, Hank
  • Description: Film Screening: "Censored Voices" (Mor Loushy, 2015, 84 min, Israel/Germany, in Hebrew and English w/ English Subtitles, Color, DVD)/ On June 5, 1967, the armies of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan amass on Israel's borders, threatening annihilation. Six days later, the war ends with Israel's decisive victory - conquests of Gaza, Sinai, and the West Bank, tripling the tiny country's size. Streets brim with joy, but behind the euphoria and a proud new national narrative of invincibility, are other voices. One week after the war, renowned author Amos Oz audio-records intimate conversations with Israeli soldiers fresh from the battlefield. These provocative tapes, unheard until now, are the core of a startling film about what lies behind the facade of Israel's most celebrated military victory and the contradictions that arise when a people seeking freedom turn occupier, when David becomes Goliath. The soldiers' harrowing confessions, combined with rare archival footage and evocative sound design, create a sense of stunning immediacy. As they wrestle with the systemic excision of Palestinians, the dehumanizing nature of war, and echoes of the Holocaust, we listen as these men, now almost 50 years older, hear the recordings for the first time, and the past erupts, presciently, into the present./-- Winner for Best Documentary at Awards of the Israeli Film Academy (2015)! / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oB8EFlf4-M

Reception: Friday, January 13, 2017, 5-8pm Refreshments will be served. ___ What do you hear? "Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent" explores how artists navigate the depths of sound experience. Here, protest, politics, and dissent are embodied in digital sound files. Broadcasted, they defy the transient nature of sound - only inasmuch as a single file can be replayed. Through repetition something happens. Does one really hear the same thing twice? From podcast to experimental audio, each artist captured, molded, manipulated, mediated, or composed sound into a document. The works embrace environment|climate change, diaspora|e/im/migration, incarceration|torture, and memory|trauma, deepening auditory perceptions. Artists include: James Andean, Meira Asher, John Bechtold, Felecia Chizuko Carlisle and Valerie George, Christopher DeLaurenti, Ursula Handleigh, Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyê¿n, Michelle Jaffé, Kapwani Kiwanga, Lal, Jack Loeffler, Jonna McKone, Murr, Mendal Polish, Post Commodity, Tullis Rennie, Simone and Max, Brian Spies, Kirsten Stolle, Hong-An Truong, Karen Werner, and Gregory Whitehead. **Please note the Power Plant Gallery hours*** Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 11am-6pm Wednesday: 11am-1:30pm Closed Sunday & Monday

  • Location: Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room , First Floor
  • Contact: Herndon, Joel
  • Description: GitHub is a website where you can share data and code publicly or within a small group of collaborators. Sharing data projects on GitHub can be a great back-up solution and can also help you build a portfolio of data projects. "Stealing" and improving projects that have been shared on GitHub is also a great opportunity to contribute to a larger effort or to learn new skills from more experienced coders and analysts. If you already use RStudio to work on data projects, you can easily use the built-in "projects" to connect straight to an existing GitHub repository. In this workshop, we will use RStudio to connect to a GitHub repository, and then we will walk through basic data analysis and visualization tasks with packages from Hadley Wickham's tidyverse (e.g., dplyr, tidyr, ggplot2). You should only need to bring a laptop with a web browser for this workshop, but we recommend that you try out the RStudio Container available at the OIT Docker Containers site before you arrive. Email askdata@duke.edu if you have any trouble accessing RStudio from the link above.

  • Location: Physics 119
  • Contact: Brown, Monique
  • Description: This talk focuses on two instances in which scientific fields outside mathematics benefit from incorporating the geometry of the data. In each instance, the application area motivates the need for new mathematical approaches and algorithms and leads to interesting new questions. (1) A method to determine and predict drug treatment effectiveness for patients based off their baseline information. This motivates building a function adapted diffusion operator on high-dimensional data X when the function F can only be evaluated on large subsets of X, and defining a localized filtration of F and estimation values of F at a finer scale than it is reliable naively. (2) The current empirical success of deep learning in imaging and medical applications, in which theory and understanding is lagging far behind. By assuming the data lie near low-dimensional manifolds and building local wavelet frames, we improve on existing theory that breaks down when the ambient dimension is large (the regime in which deep learning has seen the most success).

  • Location: Bryan Research 301
  • Contact: Sturdivant, Carla
  • Description: Dendritic voltage integration determines the transformation of synaptic inputs into output firing, while synaptic calcium integration drives plasticity mechanisms thought to underlie memory storage. Dendritic calcium integration has been shown to follow the same synaptic input-output relationship as dendritic voltage, but whether similar operations apply to neurons exhibiting sublinear voltage integration is unknown. We examined the properties and cellular mechanisms of these dendritic operations in cerebellar molecular layer interneurons using dendritic voltage and calcium imaging, in combination with synaptic stimulation or glutamate uncaging. We show that, while synaptic potentials summate sublinearly, concomitant dendritic calcium signals summate either linearly or supralinearly depending on the number of synapses activated. The supralinear dendritic calcium triggers a branch-specific, short-term suppression of neurotransmitter release that alters the pattern of synaptic activation. Thus, differential voltage and calcium integration permits dynamic regulation of neuronal input-output transformations without altering intrinsic nonlinear integration mechanisms.

  • Location: Nanaline Duke 147
  • Contact: Rowland, Jessica
  • Description: The goal of the Jaworski lab is to understand how the nervous system is wired up during embryonic development. The guidance of nascent axons to their correct targets is an important aspect of brain wiring, and it is mediated by molecular cues that activate receptors on the leading process of the axon, the growth cone, to attract or repel axons. The mechanisms of axon pathfinding are still not completely defined, and it remains elusive how information from multiple guidance cues is filtered or integrated to sculpt neural circuits with high fidelity. The lab studies molecular and cellular mechanisms of axon guidance and target selection with an emphasis on signal integration and filtering. To this end, the lab employs various experimental approaches, including molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, embryology, and mouse genetics, and we incorporate cutting-edge methods such as ex utero culture of mouse embryos and in toto imaging of the developing nervous system.

  • Location: Duke North, Room 2002 , Duke University Hospital
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Decades of psychology experiments have shown that we tend to overestimate our influence over events. In medicine, this illusion of control is a "therapeutic illusion," which can lead health care providers to recommend burdensome therapies, and to pursue aggressive treatment beyond the point at which it offers meaningful benefit. David Casarett, MD, MA is a palliative care physician and health services researcher whose work focuses on improving systems of care for people with serious, life-threatening illnesses. He is the author of more than 100 articles in journals including JAMA and The New England Journal of Medicine, as well as three non-fiction books, and his writing has appeared in print and online in Salon, Esquire, Discover, Newsweek, the New York Times, and Wired. He is a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor given by the US government to researchers in the early stages of their careers. The Topics in Medical Ethics Lecture Series is jointly sponsored by the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities & History of Medicine and Duke University Hospital.

The screenplay for ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL was written by Cassilhaus artist-in-residence Jesse Andrews, based on his novel of the same name. The film tells the story of Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously to navigate the social minefield of teenage life and his constant companion Earl (RJ Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies. But when Greg's mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke), a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer-he slowly discovers how worthwhile the true bonds of friendship can be. Following the screening, filmmaker and CDS instructor Gary Hawkins will moderate a Q&A with Jesse Andrews centered around adapting a novel to the screen.

Here, protest, politics, and dissent are embodied in digital sound files. Broadcasted, they defy the transient nature of sound - only inasmuch as a single file can be replayed. Through repetition something happens. Does one really hear the same thing twice? From podcast to experimental audio, each artist captured, molded, manipulated, mediated, or composed sound into a document. The works embrace environment|climate change, diaspora|e/im/migration, incarceration|torture, and memory|trauma, deepening auditory perceptions.

  • Location: Physics 298
  • Contact: Paul, Cristin
  • Description: Existing nuclear arms-control agreements between the United States and Russia place limits on the number of deployed strategic nuclear weapons. Verification of these agreements takes advantage of the fact that deployed weapons are associated with unique and easily accountable delivery platforms, that is, missile silos, submarines, and strategic bombers, to which agreed numbers of warheads are attributed. A future round of nuclear arms-control agreements, however, may place limits on the total number of nuclear weapons and warheads in the arsenals. This is a qualitatively new challenge because the design of nuclear weapons is highly classified information that cannot be exposed to international inspectors. A viable verification approach therefore has to resolve the tension between reliably verifying that the inspected warhead is authentic while avoiding disclosure of information about its design...

  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents Kara Walker: Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated), as part of The Collection Galleries.

This series of 15 prints features Walker's signature black silhouettes layered over illustrations first published in Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War. Walker's annotations draw attention to people, events and issues that have long been overlooked. In this way, the artist activates the past in order to confront the reality of racial conflict and violence that still persists in the United States today. The Nasher Museum has invited faculty, staff and students from across the university to respond to Walker's work in written, oral and performative forms.

Families are often pressured to forgive and absolve the aggressors, which allows them to return to the community.

Directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (Oscar-winning Saving Face), the film follows Saba, a young Pakistani woman, who has survived her attempted honor killing by her own family.

  • Description: Duke's summer course, Capturing the City: Documentary Photography in Berlin, pushed students to immerse themselves fully in one of Europe's most dynamic capital cities. They interpreted scenes of cultural life, public spaces, landscapes, and people. Project fieldwork sites included Tempelhof airfield-a Nazi-era airport made famous during the 1948-1949 Berlin Airlift and now used as a public park and reception center for refugees-as well as the U-Bahn, Berlin's subway system. Students also wrote fictional short stories based on vintage photographs purchased at Berlin flea markets and met with Berlin-based documentary photographers and writers. The exhibition includes work by students Rachel Corr, Dai Li, Ellen Liew, Barbara McHugh, Iliana Sun, Genevieve Valladao, Katlyn Walther, Wenqin Wang, and Deanna White; as well as Gesche Wuerfel - who teaches at UNC-Chapel Hill, Grace Farson, a recent John Hope Franklin award winner, and class instructor, Christopher Sims.

  • Description: Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent January 10-February 18, 2017 A Broadcast Audio Exhibit at the Power Plant Gallery featuring work by local, national, and international artists. Reception: Friday, January 13, 2017, 5-8pm Refreshments will be served. ___ What do you hear? "Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent" explores how artists navigate the depths of sound experience. Here, protest, politics, and dissent are embodied in digital sound files. Broadcasted, they defy the transient nature of sound - only inasmuch as a single file can be replayed. Through repetition something happens. Does one really hear the same thing twice? From podcast to experimental audio, each artist captured, molded, manipulated, mediated, or composed sound into a document. The works embrace environment|climate change, diaspora|e/im/migration, incarceration|torture, and memory|trauma, deepening auditory perceptions. Artists include: James Andean, Meira Asher, John Bechtold, Felecia Chizuko Carlisle and Valerie George, Christopher DeLaurenti, Ursula Handleigh, Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyê¿n, Michelle Jaffé, Kapwani Kiwanga, Lal, Jack Loeffler, Jonna McKone, Murr, Mendal Polish, Post Commodity, Tullis Rennie, Simone and Max, Brian Spies, Kirsten Stolle, Hong-An Truong, Karen Werner, and Gregory Whitehead. **Please note the Power Plant Gallery hours*** Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 11am-6pm Wednesday: 11am-1:30pm Closed Sunday & Monday

  • Location: Gross Hall, Room 330 -- Ahmadieh Family Grand Hall
  • Contact: Dawn, Ariel
  • Description: Estimating High-Dimensional Autoregressive Point Processes Vector autoregressive models characterize a variety of time series in which linear combinations of current and past observations can be used to accurately predict future observations. For instance, each element of an observation vector could correspond to a different node in a network, and the parameters of an autoregressive model would correspond to the impact of the network structure on the time series of observations at each network node. Of particular interest are autoregressive point processes, in which observations consist of the times at which each node participates in some event or activity. Such data is common in spike train observations of biological neural networks, interactions within a social network, and pricing changes within financial networks. However, very little is known about how many events must be recorded before we may accurately infer the underlying networks. In this talk, I will describe sparsity-regularized methods and associated performance bounds which provide new insight into the sample complexity of these problems in high dimensions. While sparsity-regularization is well-studied in the statistics and machine learning communities, common assumptions from that literature (such as the restricted eigenvalue condition) are difficult to verify in this setting because of the correlations and heteroscedasticity of the observations.

Compact HK manifolds are one of the building blocks for algebraic varieties with trivial first Chern class and their role in algebraic geometry has grown immensely over the last 20 year. In this talk I will give an overview of the theory of compact HK manifolds and then focus on some of my work, including a recent joint work with R. Laza and C. Voisin.

  • Location: Smith Warehouse - Bay 4, C105 - Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall
  • Contact: None
  • Description: This symposium explores the challenge of making use of different levels of scale in writing and researching history. Since the advent of microhistory, the emergence of global history, and the challenges of Big Data and Big History, historians are imagining new ways of understanding the past with ever more complex scaling of historical studies. What scale of analysis is the best for solving a particular problem of historical understanding? Do we need new approaches to writing history at the national or regional level? New approaches to time are also changing the craft of history. What difference does it make to write about long periods of time or, conversing, reducing a timeframe to focus on very short periods of time? The questions about scale involve understanding experience, social and political action, writing historical biography, and using social network analysis and quantitative methods. Today, when many historians are seeking to incorporate large scale global perspectives into their work, understanding the smaller scales on which people actually experience their lives provokes new and rigorous consideration of historical sources and evidence as well. Can one write global microhistory, for example? Join us for Joyce Chaplin's keynote address and a Roundtable Discussion featuring Duke faculty and their work. Open to the public and scholars of all fields. Presented by the Department of History and the Humanities Futures initiative at the Franklin Humanities Institute.

  • Description: Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent January 10-February 18, 2017 A Broadcast Audio Exhibit at the Power Plant Gallery featuring work by local, national, and international artists. Reception: Friday, January 13, 2017, 5-8pm Refreshments will be served. ___ What do you hear? "Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent" explores how artists navigate the depths of sound experience. Here, protest, politics, and dissent are embodied in digital sound files. Broadcasted, they defy the transient nature of sound - only inasmuch as a single file can be replayed. Through repetition something happens. Does one really hear the same thing twice? From podcast to experimental audio, each artist captured, molded, manipulated, mediated, or composed sound into a document. The works embrace environment|climate change, diaspora|e/im/migration, incarceration|torture, and memory|trauma, deepening auditory perceptions. Artists include: James Andean, Meira Asher, John Bechtold, Felecia Chizuko Carlisle and Valerie George, Christopher DeLaurenti, Ursula Handleigh, Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyê¿n, Michelle Jaffé, Kapwani Kiwanga, Lal, Jack Loeffler, Jonna McKone, Murr, Mendal Polish, Post Commodity, Tullis Rennie, Simone and Max, Brian Spies, Kirsten Stolle, Hong-An Truong, Karen Werner, and Gregory Whitehead. **Please note the Power Plant Gallery hours*** Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 11am-6pm Wednesday: 11am-1:30pm Closed Sunday & Monday

  • Description: ***This event is NOT in Duke Chapel, but at Fullsteam Brewery.*** The cantatas were explicitly designed to be theologically rich, educational, and inspirational for one purpose - to glorify God and refresh the human soul. In the same way, this series provides a modern connection with this great music of the past, exploring both the theological underpinnings of the pieces, as well as their sheer musical brilliance. Each month will feature a Bach cantata with other meditative sacred and instrumental music. The Bach series will offer time of reflection, sanctuary, and peace, regardless of one's religious background.

  • Contact: Hunt, Gloria
  • Description: Each player in this dream ensemble is a star in their own right: Cellist Alisa Weilerstein is a MacArthur Fellow, praised as "a passionate player of intense musicality" (The New York Times); New York Philharmonic principal clarinetist Anthony McGill is also a tireless chamber player renowned for "his trademark brilliance, penetrating sound, and rich character" (The New York Times); and pianist Inon Barnatan is a sought-after soloist whom Philharmonic conductor Alan Gilbert called "a complete artist." These three stars come together here to explore the clarinet trio repertoire with three markedly different works. The program begins with the world premiere of a trio written for this group by the composer Joseph Hallman, then turns to Beethoven's Clarinet Trio in B-flat, an early, playful, and melodic joy. Brahms' Clarinet Trio, which rekindled his career when he had thought it finished, drew a comment from Brahms' lifelong friend, musicologist Eusebius Mandyczewski, that "it is as though the instruments were in love with each other."
