On ENCORE: Keeping Score Finale & Chamber Music from Wolf Trap
Join us Sunday from 4 to 6 pm for the final installment in the acclaimed music series, Keeping Score: 13 Days When Music Changed Forever, and chamber music from Wolf Trap.
November 4, 1964: The premiere of Terry Riley's "In C" at the San Francisco Tape Music Center. This piece, and the minimalist outpouring that it sparked, were a reaction to the rigid strictures of serialism and the stranglehold of the academic composers of the time. Hosted by Suzanne Vega and conductor Michael Tilson Thomas. Sunday, August 25, 4 to 5 pm.
We open a new season of chamber music performances, Center Stage from Wolf Trap, at 5 pm. Bill McGlaughlin and Rich Kleinfeldt host these programs recorded in performances from The Barns at Wolf Trap. In this first program, we'll hear a performance by violinist Rachel Barton Pine and pianist Matthew Hagle, in the Richard Strauss Violin Sonata in E-flat.
