Here is something special! Our favorite composer played by a brilliant pianist. Don’t miss, Jeremy Denk, this Sunday afternoon.

The probing and tasteful pianist brings his inventive approach and formidable technique to traverse Bach’s complete first volume of preludes and fugues.

This concert series is a great tradition in the Capital Region. It has a new name, but their vision remains. Best wishes for a great new season!

A new year and a new beginning! The Union College Concert Series may have a new name - Capital Region Classical at Union College - but we'll continue to bring you world-renowned classical musicians at our home in Schenectady and at other venues around the region.

It's an exhilarating experience to hear performances by masters like pianist Mitsuko Uchida in an intimate setting. We hope you'll join us! https://bit.ly/2Ftus0s

(Pogorelich)Chopin Scherzo No. 3, Op. 39

Final day of the spring membership campaign on 89.1/88.7, WMHT Public Media.

Today, it’s the 50 Greatest Pieces Of Classical Music. I’ve got one by Bach, and I’ve a pianist who lost the Chopin Piano Competition in 1980, but still managed to win thanks to a bit of controversy and a dust up caused by one of the judges.

See you on the radio at 12n.

Not Baroque, but a brilliant performance of one of my non-Baroque faves. See you at 12n.

https://www.facebook.com/miche.musician/videos/1797446720373898/

Gymnopedie No 1 is a popular, beautiful piece for the classical guitarist. I never considered performing it as an instrumental. However, a few decades ago I heard Cleo Laine sing the piece on a recording she did with renown flutist, James Galway. I was inspired. I haven’t heard of anyone singing this piece. I was hooked. I finally decided that it was time to do it. I guess it took long enough. :) Cleo Laine’s version has 3 verses. I did two verses to shorten the piece. And yes, the vocals could come way down. I miscalculated my singing low and soft, so I put the mic closer to mouth rather than the guitar. Mistake. On to the next thing…

Rock on! wextradio,org for your donation, or click the donate link here on Facebook. Thanks!
Hi--Today an exquisite, phenomenal piece you played by Thomas Tallis--I was so mesmerized I didn't hear its name at the end. The solos were unreal. What is that recording, please? Thanks.
Today 4-27-2020 you played a piece maybe fifteen minutes ago and all I caught of the name or description was the word "bookseller"? Anyway, it carried, to me, echoes more than once of the Scottish composer McLean's song The Gael (and thus Last of the Mohicans). Would there be any reason for that?
Hi--I don't know if this is an active page since last post is from May--I would like to know what the Palestrina piece was that played today 9-19-2019--just gorgeous.
What a marvelous Bach’s Lunch today 1-16-2019! Glorious music and all English medieval and baroque. Thanks for this.
Where may we find play lists?
