This Sunday (6/25) on Half Past we'll hear a trombone concerto by Salvador Brotons and a clarinet concerto by Francis Fairman.  Music from the past half-century on Half Past, Sundays at 11PM.

In 1988 John McGlinn assembled an A list cast from opera and Broadway to record as  much of the surviving music from the 1927 musical Show Boat  that he could find- music that was cut from the original production, music written for the movie versions and music added to revivals.

It's the music  of 13th century French trouveres  Adam de la Halle this week on Distant Mirror. Adam was in the service of Robert of Anjou, brother of Louis IX. He wrote chansons, motets and rondos and you can hear several of these as the Dufay Collective peroform from their CD On the Banks of the Seine.  There are also two selections by John Dowland, three songs by 15th century  English composer Robert Morton, and church music by Tudor composer Christopher Tye. Join Allan Kelly Friday night at 10.

If your three wishes would encompass a complete recording, in up-to-date sound, of one of the most enchanting film scores by Miklós Rózsa, you needn’t hold out for the discovery of a magic lamp.  Join Ross Amico for a recent release of a two-CD set, on the Prometheus label, of music from the classic 1940 fantasy-adventure “The Thief of Bagdad.”  The City of Prague Philharmonic and Nic Raine have recorded the score, note-complete, with ample bonus material.  Tune in to be transported.  Take the magic carpet ride, this Friday at 6 pm.

Join Jed Distler on Tuesday June 20th at 10 PM for Between the Keys, and an episode called "Attack of the Killer Etudes!". Works by Martinu, Alkan, Arensky, Beckwith, Chopin, Bartók, Scriabin, Lindberg, Kernis and Rachmaninov. Pianists will include Jane Coop, Anthony de Mare, Alfred Cortot, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Jenny Lin, Ralph van Raat, Raymond Lewenthal and Jerome Lowenthal.

This Sunday (6/18) at 11 PM you'll hear Jack Gallagher's "Quiet Reflections," Roy Harris' 11th Symphony and "Night Fantasies" for piano by Elliott Carter.

The Lost Chord - June 18: Sibelius, Incidentally

Jun 18, 2017

Jean Sibelius was the composer of seven authorized symphonies that stand like granitic monoliths at the heart of 20th century music.  Less well known, perhaps, is the abundant incidental music he composed for the theatre.  Join Ross Amico for an historic 1932 recording of selections written for the play “Belshazzar’s Feast,” with Robert Kajanus conducting, and a more recent, digital premiere of the complete incidental music composed for “Everyman,” made under the baton of Osmo Vänskä.  Enjoy this neglected-but-worthwhile music, Sunday at 10 pm.

The Lyric Stage: June 18 - Robert Merrill

Jun 18, 2017

Robert Merrill had one of the great baritone voices of the 20th century. It's size, depth and humanity were coupled with a superb technique that he maintained throughout his career. He made his Met debut in 1945 when he was 28 and last appeared there in the 1975-76 season. Before during, and after, he appeared at other houses, mostly American, and in numerous concerts as well.
