The Morans Do Motown

There are many versions of the Motown hit “I Heard It Through the Grapevine.” Since it was first immortalized by Marvin Gaye, it’s been covered by an all-girl punk band and made into an ad jingle for raisins. Tonight we hear singer Alicia Hall Moran’s rendition, a spellbinding operatic-cabaret version recorded live with her husband, pianist Jason Moran, at WNYC’s new Greene Space. Also, music from Misha Alperin and Duke Pearson.

Also Featured Tonight:

John Adams / Hallelujah Junction
Arvo Part / I Am The True Vine
Krzysztof Penderecki / Polish Requiem: Chaconne (2005)
Zoltan Kodaly / String Quartet No. 2, Op. 10
Hector Berlioz / Nuits d'ete, Op. 7
