This time we are packed with goodies of all instruments and voices!  Third Coast Percussion's collaboration with Devonte Hynes (a.k.a. Blood Orange, and his premiere classical compositions) are debuted on the program, from the album Fields.  A new take on Vivaldi's The Four Seasons will also premiere (with Luka Sulic, one of Two Cellos).  Trumpeter Paul Merkelo has a new recording as well, called The Enlightened Trumpet.  

Chandos Records

The Neave Trio (Anna Williams, violin; Mikhail Veselov, cello; Eri Nakamura, piano) announces the release of Her Voice on Chandos Records on October 4, 2019 (US). The album honors three distinguished women composers and features a wide range of voices from the past. From the charming, late Classical style of Louise Farrenc to the Romantic, floating, buoyant melodies of Amy Beach to the dramatic, haunting landscape and atmosphere of Rebecca Clarke, each piano trio represents the composer’s unique voice and distinct style.

Classiclectic host Kurt Hauswirth was afforded an opportunity to speak with all three members of the Neave Trio about Her Voice:

Fantasia, Finlandia & Franck is the title of a unique performance from the Marquette Symphony Orchestra.  In a side-by-side concert, the MSO will join with members of the Marquette Senior High School Symphony Orchestra and Wind Ensemble.  The goal of this concert is not only to provide a wonderful evening of classic works for patrons of the orchestra, but also to further music education opportunities.

Octavio Mas-Arocas, the MSO's principal conductor, will lead the combined ensembles.  The MSHS Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Eric Marta, and the MSHS Wind Ensemble is conducted by Matt Ludwig (both teachers are members of the orchestra).  Octavio joined Kurt Hauswirth during Classiclectic to discuss the concert repertoire and the opportunities for performers and audience members:

American cellist Ashley Bathgate "...wanted a modern-day suite that could hold its own among the epic works that already exist in the repertoire." She is speaking about her debut solo album ASH, out September 27, 2019 from New Amsterdam Records.  Formerly a member of the Bang on a Can All-Stars (a sextet of classical and alternative classical musicians which began as an ensemble in 1992), Ashley has left the ensemble to explore performance and recording on her own.  The product of years of work (and collaboration with the living composer group "Sleeping Giant"), ASH is a modern-day take on the cello suites of the past, such as J.S. Bach's or Britten's, but this is different than one composer writing the entire work; there are six individual composers who each collaborated and wrote a movement of the six cello pieces featured on ASH.

Ashley was available to speak with Kurt Hauswirth about the album, the collaborative process, and the mindset behind the compositions and performances:
