Vespers of 1610

As promised, here's a conversation about Claudio Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 with Deborah Fox of Pegasus Early Music and conductor Paul O'Dette. Why is the Vespers so extraordinary?  Why, if it's so amazing, is it rarely performed?  Why isn't it as famous as Handel's Messiah?  Paul and Deb answer these questions and touch on the raw emotional power of the work in our conversation.  I'm thrilled you'll be able to hear this on the radio, thanks to Deborah Fox and recording engineer Carl Pultz of Alembic Productions.  Hear the Vespers Monday, November 2 at 8 p.m. on Classical 91.5 and FM 90.3, streaming at  ~ Brenda

Vespers of 1610

Thank you for your support for Classical 91.5 during our fall membership campaign.  Behind the scenes, we are planning all kinds of special broadcasts on WXXI-FM, including Pegasus Early Music performing Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610, recorded in concert at the Hochstein Performance Hall this past spring.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and all good wishes to you

On Wednesday, December 25th, it's my pleasure to present WXXI’s annual Christmas morning special from 6:00 to 10:00 a.m. 

I inherited the privilege from my late colleague and friend Richard Gladwell, who for decades, poured himself into crafting a beautiful playlist every Christmas morning. He was such an inspiration!
