The Lost Chord: April 15 - April Foulds

Apr 15, 2018

Though steeped in the comparatively conservative milieu of the English musical renaissance at the turn of last century, John Foulds possessed a physical, intellectual, spiritual, and creative wanderlust.  So diverse were Foulds’ output and enthusiasms that it is difficult, if not impossible, to encapsulate the scope of his achievements within a single hour.  We’ll do our best, with his light concert overture “April – England,” “Three Mantras” from the abandoned Sanskrit opera, “Avatara,” and selections from “A World Requiem.”  It’s a Foulds paradise, this Sunday at 10 pm. 

Two words that are dear to the hearts of many people are Walt Disney, and on this week’s Dress Circle (4/15  7:00 p.m.) we’ll hear some of the music associated with Disney films but not by the originators in a show called Everybody Does Disney.  For instance, from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” we’ll hear “Heigh-Ho,” but it will be performed by The Shanghai Quartet.  “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo” from “Cinderella” gets an “Andrews Sisters” treatment by Michelle Nicastro.  Louis Armstrong will stop by to perform “The Bear Necessities” from “The Jungle Book.  

Leonin and Perotin were masters of music at Notre Dame cathedral Paris around the year 1200, just after the great edifice was built, and they were the first composers that we know about who employed polyphony.  On Friday's Distant Mirror hear their Viderunt Omnes and Sederunt Principes performed by the Early Music Conssort of London and the Hilliard Ensemble. There's also some secular music for good measure as the Newberry Consort performs music for a medieval banquet.  Join Allan Kelly at 10pm. 

Picture Perfect: April 13 - Metaphorical Big Cats

Apr 13, 2018

Friday the 13th!  Beware of ladders, broken mirrors, and… black cats?  We tempt fate with music from “Cat People” (Roy Webb), “The Wind and the Lion” (Jerry Goldsmith), “To Catch a Thief” (Lyn Murray), and “The Leopard” (Nino Rota).  Throw salt over your left shoulder and caution to the wind, this Friday at 6 pm. 

Join host Ryan Brandau, artistic director of Princeton Pro Musica, as he presents Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass. Tune in at 2 pm.

Between the Keys April 10th/Nocturnal Images

Apr 10, 2018

Virko Baley's Nocturnal No. 7 is the centerpiece of a program built around music evoking images of the night, with specks of light peaking aroun, and sudden , unpredictable emotional swings. Music by Mozart, Debussy, Chopin, Respighi and Rautavaara also will be featured.

Join the Classical Network's Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler for Between the Keys, this Tuesday April 10th at 10:00 PM.
