“Distant Neighbors” - Though we share a very long border with Latin America, we live in two very different worlds. Their history is thousands of years old, and ours is younger. Come on this journey with us to the deep and rich musical history of our neighbors to the south. Mexico’s early history of many indigenous cultures and its colonization by Spain in the early 16th century make for a fascinating evolution of its classical music.

“String Quartets from Fibich to Sibelius” - This week Bill broadens his considerations of the string quartet with an emphasis on lesser-known, late-19th century composers. He begins with Poème for violin and piano by Czech composer Zdeněk Fibich. Bill says “the music is familiar but the composer maybe not so familiar”: Poème was the score for one of the first ballets choreographed by George Balanchine. Fibich was among the European composers born in the 1850s and 1860s such as Hugo Wolf, Vincent d’Indy, and Ernest Chausson. And Bill adds another contemporary of this group, American (New England) composer Amy Beach.

“George Gershwin” - Join us for a week-long look at the life and soulful music of George Gershwin, including his Rhapsody in Blue, An American in Paris, and Porgy and Bess. A true American original, George Gershwin transcended musical categorization as he composed in almost any form: Broadway musicals, popular songs, symphonic works, and jazz. In only 38 years of life, Gershwin followed his curiosity without fear in building an astonishingly diverse oeuvre of compositions, including what Bill calls “an opera unlike any other opera,” Porgy and Bess. Bill explains Gershwin’s work and life, “flashing across the world like a comet,” and offering insights into what and who influenced him.
