There’s more to Thanksgiving than turkey and football.  We’ll hear music from movies reflective of what’s best in human nature and most admirable in the American character, including selections from “The Cummington Story” (Aaron Copland), “Field of Dreams” (James Horner), “The Best Years of Our Lives” (Hugo Friedhofer), and “Lincoln” (John Williams); then count our blessings and aspire to do better, this Friday at 6 pm.

The mass Se la face ay pale of Guillaume Dufay is a mix of medieval strictness and Renaissance freedom, which is to be expected written as it was by the man who bridged both periods.  Hear a performance of this great mass on this week's Distant Mirror  as David Munrow directs the Early Music Consort of London. Later in the program music from the Chantilly Codex as the Ensemble P.A.N. performs selections by Baude Cordier, Jean Vaillant and Franciscus Andrieu.  Join Allan Kelly Friday night at 10.

Host Gabriel Crouch, director of choral activities at Princeton University, explores Robert Shaw's recording of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, including material and commentary from Shaw's notes and letters. Sounds Choral can be heard Sunday (11/18) at 2 pm.

Oboe Sonata & Cantata #131

Sunday (11-11) evening at 11 we'll hear David Diamond's Flute Concerto, Aulis Sallinen's Introduction & Tango Overture and the Quintet for Clarinet, Bass Clarinet & String Trio by Robert Simpson. Music from the past half-century on Half Past.

To mark the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that formally ended World War I, it’s the first of a special two-part program showcasing “A World Requiem” by John Foulds.  Foulds’ work was given its premiere on Armistice Day, 1923, played four more times, then lay dormant for some 80 years until revived on Armistice Day, 2007, for this recording.  Also featured will be a contemporaneous tone poem by Lilian Elkington, literally rescued from a trash heap following the composer’s death.  War’s the pity, this Sunday at 10 pm.

The Lyric Stage: Nov. 11 - Frederica Von Stade

Nov 11, 2018

Frederica Von Stade's long career and broad repertoire includes the work of many French composers, and this week on the LS we feature her in arias and duets  from a 1979 recording of Jules Massenet's Cendrillon.  

Sounds Choral this Sunday (11/11 at 2 pm) features selections from  Songs of the Questioner, the new CD from The Same Stream Choir, conducted by James Jordan, who is also this week's program host.

Our years teaching English have gotten the better of us on this week’s Dress Circle (11/11 7:00 p.m.), and we’ve turned to the world of literature for our theme as we look at Emily Bronte’s 1847 romantic tragedy “Wuthering Heights” through stage and screen adaptations.  Join us for selections from Alfred Newman’s score for the film as well as an aria from Bernard Hermann’s opera.  

Mostly Machaut on Friday's Distant Mirror

It's the music of Guillaume Machaut on Friday's Distant Mirror.  You'll hear a rondeaux, ballade and virelai performed by Fortune's Wheel.  Then Matthew Brooke from the Oxford Camerata performs Machaut's Le Lay de Bonne Esperance from his Le Voir Dit.  Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.

Picture Perfect: November 9 - Morricone at 90

Nov 9, 2018

Ennio Morricone, author of over 500 film and television scores, is perhaps the most prolific movie composer of all time.  November 10 will mark his 90th birthday.  Celebrate this extraordinary artist by revisiting some of his most indelible inspirations, including selections from “Cinema Paradiso” (1988), “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” (1966), “The Mission” (1986), “Once Upon a Time in the West” (1968), “Navajo Joe” (1966), “The Untouchables” (1987), and his Academy Award winning music for “The Hateful Eight” (2015).  Stick a feather in your cap and call it Morricone, this Friday at 6 pm.
