This Sunday (7/23) evening at 11 we'll hear Ewazen's Concerto for 3 Trombones and the clarinet concerto by Daniel Wolff.  Music from the past half century on Half Past.

The music of Lakme by Leo Delibes is wonderfully French and served well by Mady Masple and the French cast conducted by Alain Lombard in this week's recording. The Flower Duet from Act One is justly included on many highlights recordings. But the plot has not aged well, and that is probably a reason why only three companies in America have produced it in the last several years.

Dr. Lewis Baratz continues his discussion of Baroque music on the Brilliant Classics label this Friday at 11 pm.  This week's playlist includes exerpts from the Messa sopra l'aria della Monica of Girolamo Frescobaldi, Trio Sonata Opus 2, No. 5 in B-flat Major of Arcangelo Corelli, music from the time of Rembrandt, and selects by Telemann and Handel. Featured artists include Musica Amphion (Pieter-Jan Belder, director) and harpsichordist Michael Borgstede.

Jordi Savall and Hesperion XXI visit Distant Mirror this week with Elizabethan Consort music from their CD The Teares of the Muses, pavans, galliards and almans of Anthony Holborne from his collection of 1599, which was the first printed collection of dance music to appear in England.  Join Allan Kelly Friday night at 10.

Taste the lash, and prepare to be keelhauled!  This week on “Picture Perfect,” Ross Amico stands tall against tyrannical sea captains, with music from “The Sea Wolf” (Erich Wolfgang Korngold), “Moby Dick” (Philip Sainton), “The Caine Mutiny” (Max Steiner), and “Mutiny on the Bounty” (Bronislau Kaper).  Strawberries will be pilfered and arms distributed among the crew, Friday at 6 pm.

The Lost Chord: July 13

Yes, Virginia, There is a Symphony.

The the young, beautiful but waspish Vespetta tames her husband, the aging, vainglorious Pimpinone, in Georg Phillipe Teleman's one act comic opera Pimpinone. Granted, he is something of a dunce and it isn't much of a challenge. From 1725, Telemann wrote Pimpinone as comic relief between the acts of a much longer and more serious opera, and it influenced many of the comic operas that followed. Erna Roscher and Rudolf Brodner are the unlikely couple and Helmut Koch conducts the Berlin State Orchestra this Sunday night at 8 on the Lyric Stage.
