Just in time for Thanksgiving!  This week’s Dress Circle (11/19  7:00 p.m.) will feature some Broadway Turkeys!  We took a look at the champs last week, so it’s only fair that we take a look at some of the failures that outnumber them by at least 10 to 1.  There are many factors that contribute to a show’s failure.  The show may just be bad, the direction or casting misguided, or one aspect, either the book or score, just isn’t up to par, but sometimes, there are unseen factors as when a backer pulls out, reviews are mediocre even though the show is good, and many more.

This week (11-15 at noon & 11-20 at 10PM) Curtis Calls presents 16 of the 20 Lieder in Franz Schubert's 1823 song cycle "Die schoene Muellerin" performed by tenor Evan LeRoy Johnson & faculty member Mikael Eliasen.  Performances from student recitals at the Curtis Institute of Music, Wednesdays at noon and Monday evenings at 10.

Between the Keys celebrates Daniel Barenboim's 75th birthday with his rare Deutsche Grammophon recording of Franz Liszt's monumental Piano Sonata in B Minor, plus other works.

Join Jed Distler, Artist in Residence for The Classical Network this Tuesday November 14th at 10:00 PM for Between the Keys, with a rebroadcast Monday afternoon November 20th at 3:00 PM.

This Sunday (11-12 at 11PM) on Half Past we'll hear the Cello Concerto by Alan Rawsthorne & Bright Sheng's "The Singing Gobi Desert" performed by the Prism Quartet.  

Join Ross Amico for an hour of Ukrainian classics, including “The Zaporozhy Cossacks” by Reinhold Glière and the Symphony No. 1 by Boris Lyatoshinsky (a Glière pupil), this Sunday at 10 pm.

 

This Sunday night at 8 pm we have Leonard Bernstein conducting his own music -  two songs from West Side Story, and his one act opera Trouble in Tahiti .

This week's Sounds Choral (11/12) features the motets of J.S. Bach. Join host Amanda Quist, Chair and Associate Professor of Conducting/Organ/Sacred Music at Westminster Choir College, as she shares some of her favorite recordings Sunday at 2 pm.

As in everything, Broadway has its share of winners and losers, and this week (11/12  7:00 p.m.) we’ll be looking at some box office champs that ran more than 3,000 performances.  We’ll end with the current leader, “Phantom of the Opera” which has over 12,000 performances on Broadway.  Along the way, we’ll sample “A Chorus Line,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Grease,” “Rent,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Miss Saigon,” and “Wicked” along with five more.    Celebrate the best Broadway has to offer this week, and every week, on The Dress Circle.  Don’t forget to look for the webcasts of shows you may mi
