This Wednesday, 6-6 at noon we'll hear Curtis students in Poulenc's Sonata for Violin & Piano, a waltz by Augustin Barrios & Davidsbundlertanze by Robert Schumann.  Performances from student recitals at the Curtis Institute, Wednesdays at noon and Monday evening at 10. 

If you've been listening to Jed Distler's weekly program Between the Keys, you've probably gathered that he has a vast library of unfamiliar, rare, and long-out-of print piano recordings at his beck and call.

Sunday, 6-3 at 11 PM on Half Past we'll hear the Violin Concerto by James Yannatos, songs by Leo Smit and David Baker's Trombone Concerto.  Music from the past half-century. 

Mily Balakirev, the founder of “The Mighty Handful” – that group of Russian nationalist composers in which he was joined by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Modest Mussorgsky, Alexander Borodin, and Cesar Cui – had very strong ideas about what Russian music should be.  He was not at all bashful about telling other composers what to do.  However, his late disciple, Sergei Lyapunov, was as much influenced by the keyboard prowess of Franz Liszt as he was the patriotic zeal of his mentor.  Develop a liking for Lyapunov, this Sunday at 10 pm. 

This is a rare chance to hear At the Boar's Head. Holst wrote several operas, but none, except Savatri, have found much of an audience. At the Boar's Head is no exception. Why is up for debate - it seems a natural pairing of a great English composer with England's great playwright. But languish it has - undeservedly. 

Sounds Choral this Sunday (6/10 at 2 pm) features settings of Walt Whitman's Drum Taps. Host Ryan Brandau presents Vaughan Williams' Dona nobis pacem and works by Jeffrey Van.

June may not be bustin’ out all over, but it is certainly wet, and as we enter the month of June, this week’s Dress Circle (6/3 7:00 p.m.) will take a look at some of the shows that have opened this month.  The “summer” months are notoriously lean for Broadway openings, and June is the month of the Tony Awards, so shows generally don’t open then since they would have to be remembered for an entire year before voting occurs.  In any case, we will hear songs from musicals including “Godspell,” “I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road,” “Seventeen,” the 1993 revival of “Chicago,”

Kids on Keys: Saturday June 2nd at 1 PM

Jun 2, 2018

Every first Saturday of the month, Kids on Keys showcases live performances by emerging young piano talents from the Classical Network's immediate broadcast areas of South and Central New Jersey, as well as Philadelphia, New York and occasionally beyond.

This Saturday June 2nd at 1:00 PM, Kids on Keys features pianists Zahavi Rodriguez, Nathalie Yeh, Max Wang, Elizabeth Yang, Hsi-Yun Wu and Elias Ackerly, along with archival recordings by Daniel Barenboim and Maurizio Pollini as teenage prodigies. 

Jordi Savall and Hesperion XX I visit Distant Mirror Friday night with Elizabethan consort music from the cd "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 at 10pm. 

Erich Wolfgang Korngold was one of the great musical prodigies, a composer of operas, orchestral works, and chamber music.  Arriving in Hollywood in the 1930s, he set about revolutionizing the art of film scoring.  His music graced a number of Warner Brothers’ historical adventures, most memorably the swashbucklers of Errol Flynn.  We’ll hear selections from “The Sea Hawk” (1940), “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (1935), “Another Dawn” (1937), and “The Adventures of Robin Hood” (1938).  Put some swagger in your weekend with music of Erich Wolfgang Korngold, this Friday at 6 pm. 

Curtis Calls will be pre-empted this Wednesday at noon. To hear music by Mozart, Schumann and Curtis graduate Emily Cooley from Abigail Fayette's graduation recital listen Monday evening, 6/4 at 10. 

Sunday (5-27) evening at 11 on Half Past we'll hear the 2nd Symphony by Philip Glass and Eric Ewazen's Ballade for clarinet, harp & string orchestra.  Music from the past half-century.
