Gregg Whiteside Knows... http://wrti.org/post/whats-so-great-about-franz-schubert-gregg-whiteside-knows <p>It's so easy to find oneself attracted to the music of Franz Schubert. His unmatched gift for lyricism makes him so approachable, so comprehensible; and we feel ourselves being pulled into his musical world – in my case, at a very early age. &nbsp;But now, with the wisdom of my years, my appreciation for Schubert has deepened. &nbsp;For lying within this musical world of color and melodic beauty is a powerful undertow of mystery, of light and dark, of profundity beyond the years of a young genius who lived only until the age of 31. January 31<sup>st</sup>, 2013 marks the 215<sup>th</sup> anniversary of Schubert's birth - so I thought it was an opportune time to share my thoughts on one of my all-time favorite composers.

Verdi's DON CARLOS Says It All With Opera! http://wrti.org/post/verdis-don-carlos-says-it-all-opera <p>A long war between France and Spain winds down with a peace treaty.&nbsp; A cross-border royal marriage solidifies the deal.&nbsp; Over the course of the next several hours, Italian composer Guiseppe Verdi tests the limits of a king’s power, the good intentions of a jealous princess, and the loyalty of a dear friend. Underscoring it all, are the righteous fury of the Spanish Inquisition and the unfulfilled love&nbsp;of Spain’s Don Carlo and the virtuous Elizabeth of France, culminating in one puzzling conclusion. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p> Fri, 16 Nov 2012 16:25:01 +0000 Meridee Duddleston & Gregg Whiteside 4748 at http://wrti.org Verdi's DON CARLOS Says It All With Opera!
