Violinists carry their own, familiar instrument to every concert. Pianists may play different pianos, with different characteristics, but generally all pianos work the same way. Organists have the peculiar challenge of learning an entirely new instrument, each time they perform. For Christopher Houlihan, this is a lengthy process. Daniel Gilliam talks with Houlihan about discovering a new instrument, and his favorite work on his concert at St. Francis in the Fields on November 20 at 5pm.

You have probably heard the phrase “strange bedfellows.” It may have been invented by Shakespeare in The Tempest, “Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.” Today we often hear the phrase “politics makes strange bedfellows.” We’ll go one step further with Classical music and politics, strange bedfellows indeed!

From a 19th century folk song to a 2012 a musical portrait of “social and human crisis” for piano and orchestra, we’ll hear Political Classical compositions on today’s What’s New!

"a great end to a life inside electronic music by one of the best composers in the field. May the future bring even more recognition to his unique talent in working with electronic sounds."

Gramophone

"Reputedly the most difficult string quartet ever written, its finale comprises a 16-minute sequence of microtonal variations whose mind-boggling structural complexity is belied by the intense concentration, poise and sincerity of the Keplers' playing."

October 24, 2016

Shaham took a sensitive, intelligent approach to the music that meshed well with her splendid technical facility. She brings a quiet intensity and an elegance that encloses strength in an appealing way, supporting her thoughtfulness with the score. Her cadenzas were particularly beautiful and well-played.

Bond is back to teach about what turns out to be a tradition in classical music: music based on true political events.

"Matheson is a highly interesting composer whose work genuinely seeks to reach out to audiences, and this recording is as good an introduction to (or exploration of) the forms in which he works as anyone is likely to offer"

Mrs. President the Opera
October 17, 2016

“I am struck by the similar epithets that are hurled at Hillary Clinton to those that Woodhull was branded with. She was reviled and called ‘Mrs. Satan.’ They wanted to have her jailed and accused her of being dishonest and a threat to decent society.” — Victoria Bond

a "number of impressive sharp edges in both the repertoire that Klucevsek has formed and his approach to playing it"
