Nashville Symphony: Charles Ives' Universe Symphony (realized by Larry Austin) | Arts Break | NPT
 
03:01
In 1911, Charles Ives began writing his most ambitious work, Universe Symphony -- a work so complex that he ultimately left it unfinished, but for which he left a written invitation for a future composer to complete. As realized and completed by Larry Austin, it remains one of the least frequently performed works in Ives's catalogue because of the massive forces required for performance, as well as its controversial nature. The work calls for multiple orchestras which will be conducted by a principal conductor and four assistant conductors, as well as quadruple winds and 22 percussionists. This enormous work, each of three movements representing the past, present and future, will unite the Nashville musical community, as peers from universities and local percussion ensembles will join in this Carnegie Hall appearance.

Cheekwood: Andy Warhol's Flowers | Arts Break | NPT
 
02:52
Fifty years ago, during the summer of 1964, Andy Warhol began working on silkscreen paintings of flowers, a subject that would preoccupy him for the rest of his life. When Warhol had his first solo exhibition at the prestigious Leo Castelli Gallery in New York in November 1964 it consisted entirely of Flowers. Best known for his vibrant pop imagery and searing commentary on art and popular culture, Warhol's flower imagery reveals a softer, more intimate side of the artist. In retrospect, it is also a provocative series, appropriating a powerful symbol later identified with flower-power counterculture of the 1960s, the age of peace, love, and anti-war protest. The Flowers are the only subject that Warhol revisited throughout his entire career and in almost every medium. The artist's floral imagery is among the quietest, most beautiful, and least studied. The Cheekwood exhibition is a rare occasion when Warhol's artificial flower images meet the floral abundance of an actual garden.
