The era of "new music" continues. You see, over the past few weeks, I've been lucky enough to feature some brand-spanking new music. And for this week's World Music Show (9/21), the trend continues. But don't worry, enjoying all this newness won't be complicated, which of course leads me to talk about the first bit of new music we'll hear.
The San Francisco-based Cypress String Quartet turned to Beethoven for their most recent CD release, performing the five quartets from the his "middle" period.
The Richmond Ballet is bringing one of the world’s most popular ballets back to the River City. Nicolas Beriozoff’s Don Quixote is set to run February 20th through 22nd at the Carpenter Theatre
The Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestra will present a “Celebration of China” under the directon of Associate Conductor Keitaro Harada at Richmond CenterStage on Sunday, February 15th at 4:00 p.m.
Man, I have to tell you--there is so much love packed into this week's World Music Show (2/14), that you're going to want to grab a doggie bag to take the remainder of beats left over after the show's over. Mixed metaphors aside, the show is brimming more than 31 songs about love, done World Music style--and done with the sub-headline of: The Good, the Bad and The Ugly (or an addendum to this may be: strange, off-kilter or just off).
We hope you will join us this week (2/14/15) for a very special edition of Time for the Blues as we celebrate the holiday in a way that only we can. Let all the others serenade you with sappy love songs, we’re going to offer up some tunes with a little edge.
