This week, Jill speaks with a returning favorite guest, acclaimed Canadian violinist Angele Dubeau. Dubeau and her all-female string ensemble, La Pieta, recently released an album dedicated to the music of the movies. Silence, on joue! A Time for Us, gets its subtitle from the Nino Rota composition used in the Franco Zefirelli film, Romeo and Juliet. The ensemble effortlessly glides through movie music from John Williams to Erich Korngold, from Cinema Paradiso to the Lord of the Rings, and much more, with the same attention to performance as it gives to Bartok, Vivaldi, Glass, Cage, and others.
Listen to Crossover on Saturday mornings at 11:30 am on WRTI-FM, with an encore Friday evening at 7 pm on WRTI's all-classical web stream and HD-2.
