The Girl On The Train soundtracks / 88.7KSPC - Sound Of Pictures review


The Sony Classical soundtrack release of The Girl On The Train (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), featuring the music by Danny Elfman arrived in theatres the same day at the film opened - October 7. EMILY BLUNT (Sicario, Edge of Tomorrow) leads the all-star cast of DreamWorks Pictures' The Girl on the Train, from director TATE TAYLOR (The Help, Get on Up) and producer MARC PLATT (Bridge of Spies, Into the Woods).  Based on author PAULA HAWKINS' bestselling novel, the thriller that has riveted millions now makes its way to the big screen. Reeling from a recent divorce and searching to preoccupy her days, Rachel Watson (Blunt) spends her weekday commute to and from Manhattan quietly gazing out the train windows.  Every morning and evening, she relives memories from just outside the home once shared with now ex-husband Tom (JUSTIN THEROUX of The Leftovers, The Ten), who now lives there with his new wife, Anna (REBECCA FERGUSON of Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation, upcoming The Snowman), and their baby.   88.7: KSPC - Claremont CA - Tom Skelley reviewed the film for his Sound Of Pictures show.

KSPC- Tom Skelly Review

Jake Shimabukuro - Nashville Sessions / Jazz Weekly review


If you wonder what else can be done with strings and picking, get a load of the sounds from Jake Simabukuro, who plays various types of the ukulele. This is not Polynesia night at a Luau, or The Tiki Room in Disneyland, but a bona fide album with a flexible rhythm team of Nolan Verner/b and Evan Hutchings/dr taking the music to a different plane of existence. The album comes off as a bit of a ukulele sampler, as moods ranging from 70s rock ("Man of Mud"), modern jazz ("Blue Haiku") and even a mix of Gaellic is thrown in during  "Galloping Seahorses." Verner's bass licks team with Hutchings to drive the exciting "6/8" which has Shimabukuro sounding like a harp, while the band gets low ceiling smoky on "Hemiola Blues." The versatility of the instrument is impressive, and the album doesn't come across as a curiosity piece, more like a "there's more to come" in attitude. Pay attention! SEE THE Jazz Weekly PAGE

Daniil Trifonov set for Carnegie Hall / New York Times


p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Helvetica} In 2011, when he was 20, the Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov took the top prize in two prestigious international piano competitions: the Arthur Rubinstein in Israel and the Tchaikovsky in Russia. Now 25, he continues to astonish audiences with his technically prodigious, insightful and imaginative playing. He comes to Carnegie Hall on Wednesday, Dec. 7, with a rich and challenging recital program: Schumann's "Kinderszenen," Toccata and "Kreisleriana"; five of Shostakovich's Preludes and Fugues; and Stravinsky's Three Movements from "Petrouchka."  Trifonov's new Deutsche Grammophon recording - Transcendental is the pianists visionary interpretations of Liszt's concert Études in one concentrated period, within the space of five days, "Liszt's technical virtuosity is just a means to evoke extremes of emotion," observes Trifonov. "His daring harmonic and structural innovations revealed new horizons for emotional and psychological expression in music. His compositions can be described as dynamic depictions of the spiritual experiences of a Romantic soul."           PHOTO: Christopher Smith for The New York Times p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Helvetica} SEE The New York Times PAGE

Yolanda Kondonassis interview with All Classical Portland


LISTEN TO JOHN PITMAN's SEGMENT "Beauty is the emergence of a spiritual climate in which each artist is transfigured through the impulse of creation. It becomes universal" – Alberto Ginastera Last year, American harpist Yolanda Kondonassis brought Alberto Ginastera's Harp Concerto, Opus 25 to Portland, when she performed it with the Oregon Symphony. Recently, as part of the centennial of the composer's birth, Kondonassis releases "Ginastera: One Hundred", with musicians of the Oberlin Conservatory, where she teaches. The harpist tells me in our conversation, that she has performed this work over 200 times, and each time she hears some new texture. Ginastera drew inspiration from Argentina's gaucho community – the cowboys of the lowlands – whose distinctive chord is a signature that appears in many of his works. Listening to this exciting, lyrical concerto, the signature appears in many guises. Ms. Kondonassis doesn't make this a "Yolanda and friends" CD, where she is always present; rather, this is a disc that showcases a wide range of Ginastera's output, many of them works written before the Harp Concerto (of 1956). Pampeana (1947) challenges while it rewards, as Gil and Orli Shaham play the violin and piano work. Kondonassis' good friend (and partner on their 2015 CD, "Together") plays the extraordinarily vivid Sonata for Guitar, Opus 47 (1976). Rounding out the disc, Orli Shaham reappears to play the solo piano piece, Danzas Argentinas (1937), which seems to evoke the gaucho lifestyle even more than the guitar sonata. If you already know Ginastera's music, I think that you'll find these new performances pay great tribute, and bring tremendous life, to an important figure of the second half of the 20th century. If his music is new to you, I hope that you'll enjoy the journey that Yolanda Kondonassis and her Oberlin colleagues take through the landscape of Ginastera's unique sounds.

House of Waters set for PA's Hawley Silk Mill / The News Eagle


On Saturday, December 10 at 8 p.m., Harmony Presents will showcase House of Waters, a West-African, jazz, classical and world music trio at Hawley Silk Mill. "We've been trying to bring this incredible duo since our start almost five years ago and we're so thrilled to have finally found a date. House of Waters' music is both complex and easy to enjoy, a musical exploration that invites listeners to open themselves to new sounds. One of those sounds is of the hammered dulcimer, a percussion/stringed instrument that takes years of study and spans dozens of cultures around the globe. Most often associated with traditional American and Irish folk music, these musicians have taken the instrument in entirely new directions," said Jill Carletti, Managing Director of Harmony Presents.

Joshua Bell 'Seasons of Cuba' set to air on PBS - December 16


Live From Lincoln Center presents Grammy Award–winning violinist Joshua Bell in a performance with the Chamber Orchestra of Havana and some of Cuba's most renowned artists, as well as special guest Dave Matthews. This marks the U.S. debut of the Chamber Orchestra of Havana, conducted by Daiana García. Live From Lincoln Center's Joshua Bell: Seasons of Cuba airs nationally as part of the PBS Arts Fall Festival on Friday, December 16, 2016 (check local listings).  Earlier this year, the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities asked Joshua Bell to be a member of the first official government-to-government bilateral initiative in the wake of President Obama's historic trip to Cuba. The mission was to extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people through the universal language of the arts. Upon his return to the United States, Bell expressed the desire to bring the Chamber Orchestra of Havana to the states and approached Live From Lincoln Center in order to continue the important artistic dialogue initiated overseas.   The concert that stemmed from these efforts includes the Presto movement from "Summer" from Antonio Vivaldi's The Four Seasons and "Summer" from Ástor Piazzolla's The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires performed by Joshua Bell and the Chamber Orchestra of Havana, which is composed of some of Cuba's most accomplished classical musicians.  The concert also highlights traditional and contemporary music written and performed by acclaimed Cuban artists, their collaborations building a bridge between Cubans and American artists in a new landscape of cultural diplomacy Joining Joshua Bell and the orchestra are singer-songwriter Carlos Varela (recently profiled in the HBO documentary The Poet of Havana), pianist/composer Aldo López-Gavilán, and soprano Larisa Martínez, all of whom participated in the historic trip in April. Pianist Jorge Gómez, bassist Julio González Ochoa, pianist Orlando Alonso, percussionist Ruy Adrián López-Nussa, drummer Yissy Garciá Calzadilla, and saxophonist Yosvany Terry are also featured in the concert. Special guest Dave Matthews, who was also a member of the delegation to Cuba, performs several of his own songs in collaboration with Joshua Bell and the Chamber Orchestra of Havana. He performs with Carlos Varela, as well. The live concert event and television broadcast are produced and directed by multiple Emmy Award winner Andrew C. Wilk, Executive Producer of Live From Lincoln Center. It was taped Tuesday, November 1, 2016, in Jazz at Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall.  p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Arial Narrow'; min-height: 14.0px} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Arial Narrow'} p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Arial Narrow'; color: #0433ff} p.p4 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 15.0px Calibri; min-height: 18.0px} span.s1 {text-decoration: underline} span.s2 {font: 11.0px 'Arial Narrow'} span.s3 {text-decoration: underline ; color: #0433ff}

Helene Grimaud plays Baltimore's Shriver Hall / Washington Classical Review


Hélène Grimaud's work at the piano tends toward refinement and elegance, more than bravura power. The French pianist was supposed to open Shriver Hall's season in 2014 but had to withdraw because of a finger injury, to be replaced by Angela Hewitt. She finally returned to Baltimore on Sunday evening, for the first time since 2006.  The first half, drawn from the "Water" program Grimaud released on the Deutsche Grammophon label earlier this year, was reflective in the meditative and aquatic senses of the word. The eco-conscious pianist's twee program note describes this selection of music as a "meditation on contrasting incarnations of water – gushing, trickling, raging, falling." Two opening pieces in slow, trickling style might seem risky for some pianists, who would rather grab an audience's attention. Grimaud, by contrast, drew us into this world of water, taking her time on the many rolled chords of Luciano Berio's Wasserklavier, with its allusions to earlier composers' musical descriptions of water. In Tōru Takemitsu's Rain Tree Sketch II, Grimaud continued her exploration of the dripping, pooling qualities of water, the work's luscious chords a tribute to French composer Olivier Messiaen.
