Picture Perfect: March 9 - King Arthur

Mar 9, 2018

“Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone and anvil is rightwise king born of all England.”  Join Ross Amico for music from movies inspired by the legends of King Arthur, as rendered by Sir Thomas Malory (Miklós Rózsa, “Knights of the Round Table”), Chrétien de Troyes (Jerry Goldsmith, “First Knight”), Marion Zimmer Bradley (Lee Holdridge, “The Mists of Avalon”), and Hal Foster (Franz Waxman, “Prince Valiant”).  It’s more than just another knight at the movies, this Friday at 6 pm. 

John Barrowman is best known to American television audiences for his appearances on “Dr. Who” and “Torchwood,” but this week’s Dress Circle (3/11 7:00 p.m.) is dedicated to his wonderful performances in musicals, mostly in London’s West End.  You’ll hear him perform songs from his starring roles in “Matador,” “Anything Goes,” “The Fix,” and “Hair” along with “Grease,” “Sunset Boulevard,” and the totally forgotten musical, “Jean Seberg.”  If you only know Barrowman from his television appearances, this week’s program is sure to be a pleasant surprise.

Wednesday (3/7) at noon on Curtis Calls we'll hear Mozart's "Kegelstatt" Trio for clarinet, viola and piano.  Then mezzo Sophia Fiuza Hunt sings songs by Musto, Price, Rzewski, Berger and Heggie.  Performances from student recitals at the Curtis Institute, Wednesdays at noon, repeated Monday evening at 10.
