Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin. Weeknights at seven.

This week Bill explores some newer music, and new interpretations of classics as well.  

EUREKA! This week Bill invites us to come along on a treasure hunt. We will dig deep into that overflowing box of CDs in the back of his front hall closet. He found many real treasures starting with a marvelous young Icelandic pianist, Vikingur Olafsson and a beautiful recording of the Beethoven violin concerto with Leonidas Kavakos. This is a well-rounded week where we are introduced to musicians with fresh new interpretations of works by Beethoven, Debussy, and Brahms, and we end the week crossing the world with works from Lisa Batiashvili’s City Lights, Susan Palma’s Best of Brazil, and Howard Wall’s Horn Monologues.
