About Mark Morris Dance Group
“Indisputably the most musical choreographer alive” (New York Times), Mark Morris illuminates music by Monteverdi, Brahms, and Schubert with his kinetic, witty, poetic dancemaking. The program opens with two dances that reveal the intricacies of romantic love—1989’s buoyant Love Song Waltzes set to Brahms’s Liebeslieder-Walzer for voice and piano four hands, and 1996’s I Don’t Want to Love, a revelatory exploration of some of Monteverdi’s most lovelorn madrigals. The performance culminates with a highly anticipated world premiere that brings new life and lift to Schubert’s enchanting chamber-music masterpiece, the “Trout” Quintet.
