Flamenco rhythms are in the air for the Phil’s Young People’s Concert: Fiesta this Saturday. They’re also in the blood of guest performers, including Omayra Amaya’s The dancer’s family name is synonymous with Flamenco tradition: Her great-aunt, Carmen Amaya, known as “The Human Vesuvius,” became an urban legend in New York, burning the cushions in her penthouse suite to grill sardines and hammering out hypnotic rhythms while dancing on tabletops and drums. Catch up with her in the “100 Years of Flamenco in New York” exhibit at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, also at Lincoln Center.

How to Get to Sesame Street
Well for starters, being the Music Director of the New York Philharmonic will land you where the air is sweet this coming month, as Sesame Street makes Lincoln Center the focus for its popular “People in Your Neighborhood” segment.
Alan Gilbert (who had his first exposure to Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik thanks to the Children’s Television Workshop) is one of those people in the neighborhood. You can catch him showing Murray Monster and Ovejita how an orchestra works, and what happens when he raises his baton. Check back here on April 9 when the segment will be available on YouTube, and tune into Sesame Street on April 11 to see this very auspicious debut! (We hear Ovejita even plays a solo…)

The New York Philharmonic joins our neighbors next door and the music community in celebrating the life and voice of mezzo-soprano and arts advocate Risë Stevens. While Risë’s primary local venue was The Metropolitan Opera, on occasion she would perform with the Phil in special events around the city (including at Carnegie Hall and Madison Square Garden).
In two pictures from May 1959 (courtesy of our Digital Archives), Risë is shown at the construction of Lincoln Center with Leonard Bernstein, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Leonard Warren (above), and Bernstein and Warren (below).

On the program are selections from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, Schoenberg’s Six Little Piano Pieces, and Schoenberg’s chamber arrangement of Das Lied von der Erde — never before performed by the Philharmonic.
