Guy Mintus Trio
arranged by the Music Advisory Committee

         

Israeli born, New York based award-winning pianist, composer & educator active in the Jazz, World music and contemporary scenes.

Guy’s boundary-crossing music portrays the imaginative journey of a young individual searching for truth, beauty and freedom.

In his music, Guy brings together elements from Stride piano to Turkish Makams, Indian rhythms to Bach-styled counterpoint, Jewish melodies and American jazz standards all weaved together in his own signature style.

Guy Mintus - Piano, Vocals
Dan Pappalardo - Double Bass
Philippe Lemm - Drums
 
The Guy Mintus Trio started with the need to create a musical home in which different identities and influences can co-exist and come together as a unique unified voice. The electricity and kinetic listening in the group are well-felt and has been described as “keeping the entire hall with held breath” (Barka Fabianova, Full Moon Zine Magazine). The trio’s debut record has been selected as DownBeat Magazine’s Editor’s Pick and led to performances of the trio at NY’s Jazz at Lincoln Center, Winter JazzFest and the Montreal Jazz Festival.

Guy’s awards include the “Leonard Bernstein Award” by ASCAP and the Bernstein Family Foundation, Prix du Public at the Montreux Jazz Festival’s solo piano competition and two of ASCAP’s “Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award”.  Guy has been commissioned to compose works by the American Composers Orchestra, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra and the Jerusalem East & West Orchestra. In 2018, he performed Rhapsody in Blue with the Bayerische Philharmonic, composed music for 'Fiddler' the new documentary on. Fiddler on the roof by HBO director Max Lewkowicz and premiered his first piano concerto with the Israeli Chamber Orchestra. 

The Great Neck Library Music Advisory Committee, now in its 49th year, is co-chaired by founding member Gabe Chieco, and Michele Ganz, and includes members Estelle Pace, Robert Schaufeld, Donna Litke (staff member) and new members Joan Brill-Pavlovic, Ellen Charlop, and Pamela Levy. This all volunteer committee of Great Neck residents represents a wide range of musical experience and performance.

Registration suggested beginning Wednesday, January 2 at 10:00 a.m. by calling 466-8055, ext. 208/254 or register online.

Great Neck Library School District residents have priority for seating.  Please arrive 15 minutes earlier for preferred seating.

March Title: The Blind Assasin by Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood takes the art of storytelling to new heights in a dazzling novel that unfolds layer by astonishing layer and concludes in a brilliant and wonderfully satisfying twist. Told in a style that magnificently captures the colloquialisms and clichés of the 1930s and 1940s, The Blind Assassin is a richly layered and uniquely rewarding experience.

It opens with these simple, resonant words: "Ten days after the war ended, my sister drove a car off the bridge." They are spoken by Iris, whose terse account of her sister Laura's death in 1945 is followed by an inquest report proclaiming the death accidental. But just as the reader expects to settle into Laura's story, Atwood introduces a novel-within-a- novel. Entitled The Blind Assassin, it is a science fiction story told by two unnamed lovers who meet in dingy backstreet rooms. When we return to Iris, it is through a 1947 newspaper article announcing the discovery of a sailboat carrying the dead body of her husband, a distinguished industrialist.

Please contact Reference early enough to obtain your copy of the book. Books may take 10 to 14 days to reach us from outside the Library.

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

The art of love is never a science: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers. 

Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities. Don easily disqualifies her as a candidate for The Wife Project (even if she is “quite intelligent for a barmaid”). But Don is intrigued by Rosie’s own quest to identify her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on The Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie?and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you.

Copies of the book will be available to registered patrons for pick-up at the branch of their choice. Please register by the first of the month by phone at 516-466-8055, ext. 232 to guarantee receiving the book in time.

Milton Yarensky's America Art Exhibit

“Self Portrait“ 1938

Yarensky's oil paintings chronicle the history of his times.  He was Bom in New York City in 1916 and died in 2008, and was a visual reporter of social and political life from mid 20* century America to early 21st century. 

Yarensky believed the artist has to respond with new rhythm and a new beat to fundamental changes of the times.  He works through an emotional rather than a didactic image, an abstract of a real idea, and not the idea itself.  He is concerned with the social ideas and social relations of the human condition in the complex interplay of one human being with another under the impact of the larger world.  He is interested in demonstrating in visual form the tragic waste of the human spirit.

Yarensky studied at the Brooklyn Museum Art School and Brooklyn College in addition to the
renowned Art Students League. He developed his own personal style using impressionistic and
expressionist forms to illuminate his ongoing concern with the events and people around him, 
showing his lasting dedication to painting as a visual art. Yarensky dedicated himself to this vision throughout his life.
