What Makes it Great with Rob Kapilow returns this Friday (2/2) at 8 pm as he focuses on one of Beethoven's last works, his Quartet No. 16, Op. 135. The Harlem Quartet will join Kapilow as he discusses what makes this work great, followed by a performance and a Q & A session.

On Friday's Distant Mirror hear Palestrina's Pope Marcellus Mass, the work credited with saving polyphonic church music.

We defer to the natural wisdom of the wild kingdom on Groundhog Day, with music from “Born Free” (John Barry), “National Geographic’s ‘Grizzly!’” (Jerome Moross), “Hatari!” (Henry Mancini), and “The Jungle Book” (Miklos Rozsa).  Prepare to go wild, this Friday at 6 pm. 

This Wednesday (1-31) at noon on Curtis Calls we'll hear Curtis students perform Mendelssohn's 2nd Piano Trio and Sergei Prokofiev's Flute Sonata.  Performances from student recitals at the Curtis Institute of Music, Wednesdays at noon and Monday evenings at 10.

For the final program this month of Between the Keys surveying Beethoven's last five piano sonatas, The Classical Network's Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler explores the composer's final sonata No. 32 in C Minor Op. 111, with a classic recording by one of the 20th century's great keyboard legends, Claudio Arrau.  The program commences with Beethoven's very first piano sonata, No. 1 in F Minor Op. 2 No. 1, in a recording by the late Zoltan Kocsis.

The Lost Chord: January 28 - Wrestling Jacob

Jan 28, 2018

Gordon Jacob is perhaps best known these days as an orchestrator, but he was also a prolific composer.  In fact, when weighing the size of his output against his reputation, it’s tempting to underestimate – as the Angel did his Biblical namesake – Jacob’s tenacity.  Join me for Jacob’s “William Byrd Suite,” and then music of a more serious nature:  his Symphony No. 1, dedicated to the memory of his brother, who died on the Somme.  We grapple with the legacy of Jacob, this Sunday at 10 pm.
