Live Music: Streaming and In Person
Not only will there be streaming audio but video as well. At 7 p.m., Almazan will sit with Lara Pellegrinelli for an interview and viewers/listeners are encouraged to send questions via a "live chat box." Judging by the show Almazan and Trio put on at Firehouse 12 in September (with Kendrick Scott sitting in for Cole), you won't want to miss this (here's what I thought) - best of all, the show is archived and you can listen as often as you would like. For more, go to www.npr.org/villagevanguard.
The indie-classical chamber ensemble, formed in 2002 by Ms. Baker and Ms. Meyers, plays a heady and attractive repertoire of (mostly) 21st Century composers, folks such as Jason Treuting (from So Percussion), Caleb Burhans and Sofia Gubaidulina), with many of the works commissioned by Janus. It's important that the repertoire for flute, harp and viola began in the early 20th Century with a work by Claude Debussy. Their debut CD, "I Am Not (blank)", took 3 years to come together and was released late last year on New Amsterdam Records. For more information about the ensemble, go to www.janustrio.org.
