After the holiday season (and a break from Genre Fluid Fridays for a while!), I've returned with more music outside the boundary waters of classical (and some familiar ports of call). Heidi Louise Williams performed music of Carlisle Floyd on Beyond the Sound; we heard music of Poulenc from Alexandre Tharaud & Graf Mourja. Three folk melodies were featured through the lense of Leonardo Balada, and the Barcelona Symphony. Then, we turned to the poetry of Jaik Miller and music of Daron Hagen with jaik's songs; Jennifer Koh & Missy Mazzoli dazzled us with "A Thousand Tongues," with the sounds of violin, piano and electronics. Finally, we featured a few instruments; flute, bassoon, and the trombone, with music of Gabaye and Brad Edwards.

Classical Music has transformed. The doors have been thrown open wide, allowing for a multitude of sounds, voices, performers to be heard, and experiences to explore.  And, as Hans Christian Andersen said, "Where words fail, music speaks."  In increasingly turbulent times, music is not just a balm for the soul, but a tool for expression against oppression and a vehicle for a message.  In a time of "OK, Boomer" vs. millenial disdain, music (while exponentially expanding in scope to a point where genre is becoming meaningless, and to some, a line in the sand) still finds a way to bring people together as a common form of expression, enjoyment, and passion.
