Last night Streep took to the stage at Koerner Hall with the Takács Quartet to perform a series of readings from author Philip Roth’s death-obsessed 2006 novel, Everyman. It might not have been a singing voice, but it was a voice worth listening to. “It’s best to give while your hand is still warm,” Streep. Excerpts were paired with four works from composers Pärt, Britten, Shostakovich and Schubert, performed by the Takács Quartet at Streep’s side. It was a solemn, meditative evening devoted to the examination of life through death. It explored the bittersweet process of growing old and weighing the marks of life’s purpose against death’s ultimate finality. As a writer, Roth writes exceptionally well for women. The words transcended to become stories about all of us; Everyman.
