Benjamin Britten: Junius’ Aria

Longtime MESS & NYFOS favorite Theo Hoffman absolutely slays this conniving, wicked aria from act 1 of Britten’s masterpiece.

Reynaldo Hahn: L’heure exquise

In early 2016 Ben & Lachlan arranged a concert for a small audience of friends in the crypt of Church of the Intercession at 155th & Broadway. This piece, a favorite of Ben’s since college, was a highlight of the evening.

As I Went Down to the River to Pray

Co-founders Lachlan Glen and Ben Bliss (in their pre-MESS days) collaborate in an early original arrangement  for their 2015 Lindemann Young Artist recital.

Johannes Brahms: Ronda alla zingarese from piano quartet No.1 in G minor Op. 25

This piece is a favorite of MESS co-founders Ben Bliss and Lachlan Glen. It was also performed (by Mr. Glen) at MESS’s very first Premier Event. Its expansive, romantic string setting and virtuosic, rhapsodic piano was a highlight of the night.

Sergei Prokofiev: Morning Serenade from Romeo & Juliet

This piece, performed by the Verona Quartet, opened MESS’s very first Premier Event in October of 2017. It’s playful, inviting sound world invited our audience into the fresh new classical music scene that is Mise-En-Scène Studios!
