I'd go, Jim!

Have you ever heard "The Bells"?!?! Check out Kondrashin's recording with Moscow PO. (I think it's on YT.)

And Bronfman is no slouch. I bet his Liszt will be well worth hearing.

Sure, Tchaik will be a little cheesy -- but so what? I'd go for the Rach and the Liszt!

ELP actually fired cannons at the end of their interpretation of Pictures at an Exhibition. A cameraman was near one and warned, but he hung around and kept shooting, at least until the cannon shot. There was a commercial video released of it.

Think I'll put the energy into this Monday night event. I've been enjoying the various Bang On A Can projects.

Julia Wolfe's Anthracite Fields

April 15 | 2019


Moody Performance Hall

7:30PM


Julia Wolfe COMPOSER
Bang on a Can All-Stars 
Verdigris Ensemble 

This powerful oratorio, which evokes Pennsylvania coal-mining life, won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize in Music. Called “unforgettably haunting” by the LA Times, this one-hour piece is set to archival footage of coal country, providing context for the dreamlike composition.

Please join us in the concert hall following the performance for a moderated discussion about the work.
