On this week’s World Music Show (10/1), we’ll create a travelogue of musical souvenirs, with highlights in alternative Portuguese tunes, as well as some Rock-n-Roll tracks out of Russia. Plus, we’ll hear a melding of African & Brazilian music, as well as some groovy Gypsy songs.
Scott Burton is always pushing boundaries and experimenting with his music. Whether he’s adapting the scores of John Carpenter’s Halloween films for jazz ensemble or concocting new pieces for guitar and synthesizer.
Recently on my afternoon classical show, I had the opportunity to host an ensemble of local musicians that have put together a "new" Handel opera, “Minerva.” The new company, titled “Into the Woods Productions,” is led by local singer Gabrielle Maes. This show was put together by father and son, Raphael (libretto) and Niccolo (original music) Seligmann.
