The Westben Music Festival presents "Music from the Sistine Chapel" Sunday, July 26 at 2 p.m. with Montreal's Studio de Music Ancienne conducted by Christopher Jackson at "The Barn" on Campbellford Road in Campbellford Ontario. WNED spoke with Jackson about Palestrina, Allegri, Tallis, and Monteverdi and why audiences love this music from 400 years ago.
Toronto-born pianist Stewart Goodyear makes his home in Philadelphia (he is, after all, a graduate of the Curtis Institute) but he's coming back to Ontario, to play J.S. Bach's monumental keyboard solo work - The Goldberg Variations. That work is now a standard in the repertoire primarily because of another Canadian pianist, Glenn Gould. Goodyear will perform at the Westben Arts Festival located on County Road 30 just outside of Cambellford, Ontario, Sunday July 19 at 2 p.m.
The Westben Arts Festival has a vibrant summer musical lineup, including Analekta recording artist Valerie Milot, harp, and her life partner, Antoine Bareil, violin, who bring an intimate evening of favorite classics to "The Barn" 6698 County Road 30 North in Campbellford, Ontario, Thursday, July 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. The couple recently spoke to WNED.
JoAnn Falletta's only local appearance this summer will be Monday, July 20th at the Shaw Festival, featuring Marko Topchii, winner of the 2014 JoAnn Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition and Atis Bankas, violinist and artistic director of Music Niagara, featuring music by Rodrigo, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Rossini. WNED recently spoke with the guitarist at home in Ukraine.
The Roycroft Chamber Music Festival wraps up this weekend, Friday and Saturday, June 12 and 13, with both concerts at 8 at St. Matthias Episcopal Church in East Aurora. Friday's concert includes the exciting Mozart G minor Piano Quartet and Stravinsky's "A Soldier's Tale" with seven BPO musicians. Saturday night features music by Schubert, Debussy, and Dvorak. Once again, guest cellist Michelle Djokic spoke with WNED.
It's called "null point 7. Decay/Reverberate: Site-Specific Sound at Silo City" and Colin Tucker (studying composition at UB) along with friends is putting on a four-day event at Silo City on Childs Street (aka Silo City Row) sponsored by UB's Center for 21st Century Music. Programs start on Thursday, June 11 at 7:30pm and while there will be performances all weekend, you can come anytime and enjoy the installations. There's also a "sound walk" through the Old First Ward on Saturday at 2:30. For a schedule, simply Google "null point 7." Colin Tucker spoke with WNED.
Nickel City Opera presents Mozart's ever popular "The Marriage of Figaro" with Metropolitan Opera Baritone Valerian Ruminski as Figaro and soprano Amy Grable as Susannah, the object of not just Figaro's affection but, unfortunately, also Count Almaviva's! This puts the plot into motion and along the way we hear some gorgeous music, including the "Sull'Aria" made famous in the movie "The Shawshank Redemption." Sung in Italian with English supertitles there are two performances at the Riviera Theatre: Friday, June 26th at 7:30pm and Sunday, June 28th at 2:30pm. Amy Grable spoke with WNED.
There is more variety at the Roycroft Chamber Music Festival concerts than you usually get because on any given evening you have three different groups/formations/styles performing, but this year one consistent factor is cellist Michelle Djokic who appears on all four nights (Saturday June 6th at 8pm, Sunday June 7th at 7pm and next week as well) at St. Matthias Episcopal Church at the corner of Maple and Main in East Aurora. Michelle spoke with WNED about two of the more unusual works, one for four cellos and one work that is actually video game music
Norwegian born composer Ola Gjeilo (say “YAY-low”) is bringing his lush harmonies to the final concert of the Vocalis Chamber Choir this Sunday afternoon, June 7th at 4pm at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 1080 Main Street (across from the Anchor Bar). While some have compared his soothing spiritual music to that of Arvo Part or Eric Whittacre, Gjeilo says that he is inspired more by movie composers, for example, Howard Shore, who wrote music for “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. In this conversation with WNED, Gjeilo talks about his musical goals, how he composes, and reveals some insights into composing for the movies and TV.
Trumpeter Byron Stripling’s influences, besides gospel and classical, include jazz trumpet greats Miles Davis, Clark Terry (who got Byron his first job with Lionel Hampton), and Louis Armstrong. This Saturday, June 6th at 8pm he joins the Buffalo Philharmonic Pops and vocalist Marva Hicks for a program called “Ella, Louis, and All That Jazz.” In this wide ranging conversation with WNED, Byron has some good advice for young musicians.
10 time Grammy winning trumpeter Arturo Sandoval is coming to Kleinhans Music Hall this Friday, May 29th at 7pm as the Clarence High School bands celebrate their 50th anniversary. Sandoval will be playing the Arutunian Trumpet Concerto, among other selections. In this conversation with Clarence High music director Lou Vitello and WNED, Sandoval gives some surprising advice for young musicians
In celebration of their special 50th anniversary concert this Friday, May 29th at 7pm at Kleinhans Music Hall, each of the three Clarence High School bands has commissioned a work composed by well-known composers including David Maslanka, Robert Jager, and Thomas Duffy, who joined Arturo Sandoval for a conversation about the future of music.
Young violinist Tim Fain brings his 1717 violin (on loan to him from Buffalo’s Clement and Karen Arrison through the Stradivari Society of Chicago) to Kleinhans Music Hall. He’ll play the “Serenade” by Bernstein with the BPO as JoAnn Falletta conducts, both Friday morning at 10:30am and Saturday night at 8:00pm. Tim spoke with WNED about his evolving relationship with his violin.
"Reflections on a Dance" describes the music on the final Buffalo Brass Choir concerts of this season, Saturday, May 23 at 7:30pm at Orchard Park Presbyterian Church, 4369 South Buffalo Street in OP and Sunday, May 24 at 3:00pm at Blessed Trinity RC Church, 317 Leroy Avenue. Trumpeter and Artistic Director Nick DelBello spoke with WNED about getting that unique brass sound.
"Miniatures and Collages," terms we usually associate with painting, also describe the contemporary music to be performed by the Buffalo Chamber Players Wednesday evening at 7:30 at Buffalo Seminary, 205 Bidwell Parkway in Buffalo. Every work on the program is a Buffalo premiere, as Artistic Director Janz Castelo told WNED.
