Doctors_dilemma_artwork_small

The blowhards, the know-it-alls, the scrupulous and the impecunious are all targets for Shaw’s incisive wit in his classic satire of the medical profession. A well-respected physician is forced to choose whom he shall save: a bumbling friend or the ne’er-do-well husband of the woman he loves.

From L.A. Theatre Works | Part of the L.A. Theatre Works series | 01:57:56

The timeless comedy from Richard Brinsley Sheridan.

School-for-scandal-the_artwork_small The average American is exposed to a hundred thousand words of information each day, according to a recent study by the University of California-San Diego. But of the nearly twelve hours of media, music, and conversation we take in, how much of it do we accept as fact? The slippery nature of truth is at the heart of our story this week – a classic tale of rumor, gossip, and hypocrisy which remains both hilarious and timely in the present day.

The School for Scandal by Richard Brinsley Sheridan. Starring Julian Sands and Susan Sullivan.
Directed by Michael Hackett.

Cinco de Music!

From Wind and Rhythm | 58:30

While "Cinco de Mayo" officially honors the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, in American and elsewhere around the world the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican culture, cuisine, and of course, music. This week on Wind & Rhythm we highlight the rich rhythms, the Banda beats, and the Mariachi magic as we dance and dine with music from Mexico.

E429_photo_orig_small

The mission of Wind & Rhythm is to build a community of individuals who love wind bands; to grow a wider audience for the music bands play; and to provide a venue for band members and directors to speak about their art.

To accomplish our mission we produce both on-air and on-line programming that invites listeners to reconnect with their roots as members of bands; encourages listeners to participate in community music-making; and provides for listeners an opportunity to hear the best bands in the world.

Celebrating the life and music of Erich Kunzel with a two-hour special.

Ek_conducting_t_small

Naomi Lewin hosts The Spectacular Legacy of Erich Kunzel, remembering the man who founded the Cincinnati Pops, saw the group through dozens of recordings, and left behind a legacy of musical entertainment and showmanship that will never be duplicated.

The program includes favorite selections from the Pops interspersed with reminiscences from some of Maestro Kunzel’s favorite collaborators including Doc Sevrinsen, Dave Brubeck, Michael Feinstein, and Frederica von Stade, as well as members of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra.

Maestro Kunzel, who lost his battle with cancer September 1, 2009, especially wanted the music of the Cincinnati Pops to continue after his death, so this special is made available to public radio stations to help fulfill that wish.

All Mixed Up with Davie Bowie


Woke up to the news of Bowie's passing after beginning to prepare the show the night before. Mixed that day with the first 1/2 hour used as an overture before we get to "Rebel Rebel" by Seu Jorge. It’s a shock and extremely sad but if you listen to his last three albums you hear the struggle with coming to grips with his own mortality–I’m just watching the film that came with “Reality” and there’s David literally digging his own grave and interviewing himself about death, art and the supernatural. “Never Get Old” has been running through my head along with “Where Are We Now” and so many other indicators that Bowie was sharing these very scary thoughts and ruminations while keeping his personal life so carefully hidden. So much to process right now that I can’t even finish my thoughts. Also that very simple but moving video of “Valentines Day” where he’s playing air guitar and talking about his "tiny face and scrawny hands” and “how he feels…” All by himself out of breath and so vulnerable

Mozart Comes to America

From WGBH Radio Boston | 01:57:59

The violin and viola once owned by Mozart himself speak through the composer's music during the Boston Early Music Festival, thanks to the Salzburg Mozarteum.

Mozart_violin_in_case_396x281_small Mozart never made it to America: getting seasick crossing the English Channel put an end to any of his seafaring fantasies. But America was frequently on Mozart's mind. In fact, his closest collaborator, librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, actually immigrated to these shores and became the first professor of Italian at Columbia University in New York.

Mozart's music has made it here, of course – it's woven into the lives of practically everyone. And that's a big part of why there were so many goosebumps when an excited audience in Boston was suddenly in the presence of two of the instruments that Mozart had placed firmly under his chin, in private and in concert, uncountable times.

Only a few days earlier, an Austrian had made his way through security with a violin case and boarded a plane in Salzburg. Another Austrian boarded a different plane with a viola case. And that marked the first time that two priceless possessions of Mozart had gone transatlantic. What a thrill that they were headed for the room up the hall from us at Classical New England. The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation was reaching out to the wider world, and the two instruments were never, ever out of the sight of at least one member of the entourage who came along for events presented by the Boston Early Music Festival.
