Monday, 29 October 2012 | Rich Samuels

Here’s the music I’ve selected for my November 1, 2012 show: 5:09: The Wisconsin Brass (celebrating their 40th season) perform four madrigals of Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643). Recorded in concert in Mills Hall March 3, 2012. 5:19: The Budapest Festival Orchestra conducted by Iván Fischer performs Dances of Galánta, composed by Zoltán Kodály (1882-1967) in 1933. I’ve selected this piece because the Madison Symphony Orchestra will be performing it at its next concert series on November 2, 3 & 4. 5:36: Violinist James Ehnes performs the Concerto for Violin and Orchestra Op. 14 of Samuel Barber with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra conducted by Bramwell Tovey. (Ehnes performed this work with the MSO several weeks ago). 6:08: James Smith conducted the University of Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra in a performance of Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 6 in C Major. This work is sometimes called “The Little C Major Symphony” to distinguish it from Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 (known as “The Great”), also in the key of C Major. The MSO will be playing “The Great” C at its concerts on November 2, 3 and 4. 6:48: The Chicago-based new music ensemble “Eighth Blackbird” performs Music in Similar Motion, a 1969 work of Philip Glass (b, 1937). This selection comes from Eighth Blackbird’s latest CD on the Cedille label. 7:30: Daniel Stepner (violin), Mary Ruth Ray, Rhonda Rider (cello) and Yehudi Wyner perform John Harbison’s “November 19, 1828″ (composed in 1988). The works akes its name from the date of the death of Franz Schubert and evokes the composer’s transition from this world to the next. 7:47: Twin sisters (and Madison natives) Christina and Michelle Naughton perform a two-piano version of Maurice Ravel’s La Valse, The Naughtons will be playing Francis Poulenc’s Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra with the MSO on November 2, 3 and 4.
