John Cage: City Circus, Program XIII

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

WNYC

To mark what would have been John Cage’s 100th birthday, New Sounds and Q2 Music have been presenting a 1994 series of rare in-studio recordings and interviews with the composer - "John Cage: City Circus," what we thought to be thirteen programs worth.  Except that when we went digging through the archives, we could only come up with twelve.  So here, after many years, and in this John Cage centennial year, is the missing 13th installment - a new show to complete the series.

Thankful for Lubimov

Sunday, November 28, 2010

Ten years ago, the Russian pianist Alexei Lubimov recorded Der Bote or The Messenger, an intimate collection of elegiac piano miniatures spanning three centuries and diverse nationalities. As part of Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival earlier this month, Lubimov performed Der Bote for a small audience at the Kaplan Penthouse for the festival’s Late Night Elegy series. On this episode of Cued Up on Q2, a Web cast of this moving recital kicks off an all-Lubimov showcase that includes performances ranging from solo piano with orchestra to solo harpsichord with tape. Listen in Sunday, November 7 at 2 p.m.

Turn On The White Lights

Monday, November 22, 2010

This week Hammered! takes its programmatic cue from the probing musical curiosity of pianist Alexei Lubimov, beginning Monday with a Web cast of his Late-Night Elegies recital at Lincoln Center's White Light Festival. The haunting performance features a set of unlikely composers ranging from Valentin Silvestrov to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, whose Fantasia in F-sharp minor, no joke, sounds supremely freaky next to Tigran Mansurian’s Nostalgia.

Alexei Lubimov's Late-Night Elegies

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Equipped with diverse musical interests, a keen programmatic awareness, and a vast repertoire, pianist Alexei Lubimov is not exactly a proponent of conventionality. The breadth of his musical interests are on full display as part of his two White Light Festival "Late-Night Elegies" recitals on November 11 and 13, both of which are being recorded at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse for future inclusion on WQXR and Q2.
