Carl Maria von Weber's Der Freischutz premiered in 1821. Critics today describe it as a "pivotal opera", and the "first important German romantic opera", and Weber's influence on Richard Wagner and others is clearly unmistakeable.

The Dress Circle is celebrating the life of George Gershwin this week (7/8  7:00 p.m.) as we approach the 81st anniversary of his untimely death on July 11, 1937 with a program of his lesser-known works with his brother Ira as well as with other lyricists.  Included will be songs from shows like 1925’s “Tip-Toes,” “Sweet Little Devil” from 1924, and “Primrose” written expressly for the London stage in 1924.  Although they were all well received, they have been forgotten.

The Westminster Cathedral Choir visits Distant Mirror this Fridy night with the music of Tomas Luis de Victoria, the greatest composer of the Spanish Renaissance and called by many the Spanish Palestrina.  Hear his Missa O Quam Gloriosum, one his more famous parody masses and based on the motet of the same name from 1572.  David Hill Directs.  Join Allan Kelly at 10pm. 

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a radio host in possession of a weekly film music show must be in want of a good theme.  Tune in for selections from “Emma” (Rachel Portman), “Sense and Sensibility” (Patrick Doyle), and two versions of “Pride and Prejudice” (Carl Davis and Dario Marianelli).  A large income is the best recipe for happiness I ever heard of – at least according to “Mansfield Park.”  The next best is a playlist assembled from Jane Austen movies.  Know your own happiness, this Friday at 6 pm. 

July 4th at noon on Curtis Calls we'll hear percussionist Neil Rao in music by Minoru Miki, Iannis Xenakis, Robert Honstein & Molly Joyce.  Performances from student recitals at the Curtis Institute, Wednesdays at noon and Monday evenings at 10.
