Live at Timucua: Robert Fleitz “Achilles Dreams of Ebbets Field” (in-person)
June 25, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
“Achilles Dreams of Ebbets Field” is a two-hour long solo piano epic by the composer Dylan Mattingly, which reimagines each of the 24 books of the Iliad and threads them into an autobiographical musical epic about love, heroes, baseball, and coming of age in New York far from home. For hundreds of years, bards would travel the Aegean and sing from memory the 15,693 lines of the Iliad. Each time the story would change a little bit depending on the bard’s surroundings and memory. Achilles Dreams of Ebbets Field imagines what the Iliad in which we find ourselves — after a few thousand more years of telling, retelling, and evolution — might feel like.
Pianist and composer Robert Fleitz performs, commissions, and writes music to curate evocative, multi-disciplinary experiences for audiences. Praised for “mesmerizing” and “commanding” playing (The New York Times), and for musicality with “a delightful ease and lightness” (I Care If You Listen), his prolific career in performing both classical and new music has led to appearances in 24 US states and 13 countries across the globe. He was the winner of the André Boucourechliev Prize in the 2020 International Piano Competition of Orléans.
