In WXXI Sharp Ears series, Rochester musicians are sharing recordings they think weâ€™ll like and talking about special things they listen for. I learned a great deal from Sylvie Beaudette, an Assistant Professor of Chamber Music and accompanying at the Eastman School of Music. I know that you will enjoy hearing from her, too.
In this series from WXXI, Rochester musicians offer you a guide to listening. As many students and teachers are headed back to school, we turn our attention to the important listening that goes on in classrooms. The guest is music teacher Laurence Tallman, who says both teachers and students have had a profound impact on him.
Women composersâ€™ music has never been more interesting or prolific, and youâ€™ll hear splendid examples of it throughout the month of March. On Classical 91.5, we'll start the day with inspired music, arts news, features, and the latest headlines. The Mystery piece airs at 6:40.
