Failed State: Dysfunction and Corruption in an American Statehouse By Seymour P. Lachman and Robert Polner

Failed State shines a light on the dark corners of New York’s legislature and points the way to much-needed reform. Drawing on his experiences both in and out of state government, former New York State senator Seymour P. Lachman reveals and explores Albany’s hush-hush, top-down processes, illuminating the hidden, secretive corners where the state assembly and state senate conduct the people’s business and spend public money.

Robert Polner, a public affairs officer for New York University, co-authored “The Man Who Saved New York: Hugh Carey and the Great Fiscal Crisis of 1975.” He edited “America’s Mayor, America’s President: The Strange Career of Rudy Giuliani.” Mr. Polner formerly reported for New York and New Jersey daily newspapers.

Looking Back, Moving Forward: A Musical Odyssey with The Counterclockwise Ensemble

Join The Counterclockwise Ensemble for a unique listening experience that combines the intimacy and instrumentation of chamber music with the energy and vitality of a rock concert. Evoking the mood and spirit of both European and American classical masterpieces, the Ensemble will take you on a sonic journey that draws much of its inspiration from the natural beauty of the American landscape in full bloom and the hearty music of its people in celebration.

The Counterclockwise Ensemble is a guitar, strings and percussion quintet that plays contemporary American chamber music. Equally at home in a variety of genres, the group primarily plays the compositions of guitarist Rich Stein, sprinkling in pieces by Gustav Holst, Aaron Copland and Led Zeppelin as well as traditional American and Irish folk tunes into their sets.

Originally formed in order to perform the pieces on Stein’s CDs Unspoken (2003) and Counterclockwise (2007), the current ensemble includes founding members Rich Stein (guitar), Andrew and Rebecca Perea (violin and cello), Glen Saunders (double bass) and Jim Mansfield (percussion).

TED Talk followed by Discussion facilitated by Connie Lagan

Masterwork Conversations

Pianists Matthew Harrison and Vlada Yaneva present

Russia: A Composer’s Revolution

Lying in the east, for many years beyond the reach of western classical harmonies, Russia waited for the right moment to make its debut upon the European musical scene.  When it finally did, an explosion of composers brought Russia to the forefront of the European tradition with a passion and genius that still shines brightly today.  Tchaikovsky was the first and guiding light of a new voice that merged western forms with a distinctly Russian flair for raw, unbridled emotion.  Soon followed the composer-pianist pair of Rachmaninoff and Scriabin, classmates and rivals whose works rise to the summit of pianistic perfection.  Stravinsky later changed everything music could be, leading the forefront of the avant-garde with a music that shocked and amazed audiences, and even provoked a riot in Paris!  Russia still remains “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma,” but Masterwork Conversations will get to the center of this musical matryoshka doll! 

Pianists Matthew Harrison and Vlada Yaneva have been bringing Masterwork Conversations to audiences since their inaugural Chopin series in 2010.  Their performances have taken them from stages in Europe to Carnegie Hall to the airwaves of WQXR, and the Wall Street Journal has featured Mr. Harrison’s article on Grieg: “Norwegian Soul Laid Bare.”  Their open conversation recital format has brought new musical insight and enjoyment to audiences of every age and experience.  In 2015 they released their debut CD, The Imagination of the Folk.

Please register at 466-8055, ext. 208 or register online. Great Neck Library District residents have priority for seating.
