The Book of Joseph

February 15, 2017 - 1:00pm
02-14-2017 to 02-15-2017 - Every family has its secrets. Richard Hollander’s remained in an unopened suitcase for fifteen years after the death of his parents. Inside, he found a collection of Swastika-stamped letters written during World War II by a family he never knew—his late father Joseph’s mother, three sisters, their husbands and children. Unable to convince the family to leave Poland, Joseph escaped to the United States where he fought to save his family from annihilation at the hands of the Nazis, and to avoid deportation and death himself. Richard collected his family’s letters in his book, Every Day Lasts A Year, the inspiration for this frequently chilling, often humorous, and always deeply moving drama, staged by Artistic Director Barbara Gaines. We come to know three generations—their hopes, fears and fates revealed—in a compelling journey of the human family and the primal need to understand those who came before.

Daring Duos

February 12, 2017 - 1:00pm
02-12-2017 to 02-12-2017 - This Valentine’s Day weekend, the Chicago Philharmonic explores the astonishing lengths that people will go to for love. Beethoven’s Leonore Overture is named for the ultimate faithful spouse who risks everything, in disguise as the jailer’s assistant, Fidelio, to free her wrongly imprisoned husband. In “Dance of the Blessed Spirits,” Orpheus literally goes to Hell and back for his beloved wife. Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony lives in the sweet embrace between an endlessly reverent pilgrims’ processional and the wild abandon of the final tarantella. Trumpeters Bill Denton and Robert Sullivan put great faith in their technique – and each other – in a pairing of two virtuosic concertos. From Vivaldi to Plog, these pieces are full of exhilarating exchanges that push the instruments to their limits.
