American Baritone Thomas Hampson will present a recital with pianist Wolfram Rieger called "War Cries and Lamentationsons" on Classical Showcase Friday evening at 7pm on Classical 101.  It's part of the "Carnegie Hall Live" series recorded earlier this year in New York City.

Picture it: Mozart at a masquerade ball gussied up as an ancient Middle Eastern prophet and spouting a made-up philosophy of riddles and off-color aphorisms.

Too silly even for Mozart? Nope.

Summertime. That season of sun and relaxation is nearly upon us here in Columbus, but with its vacations and balmy tidings, summer may bring certain pressures for working parents.

A ballroom, a luxurious penthouse and a rooftop garden are among the amenities listed on the Web site of Judson Manor, an upscale retirement community in Cleveland's University Circle district. Keep reading and you'll see that the same list of amenities also boasts a restored Bechstein piano and a Steinway grand.

These instruments aren't just for show. They're played regularly in recitals given by Judson Manor residents - old and, thanks to the community's intergenerational Artist-in-Residence program, young.

Period-instrument performance has been around for decades, but has really exploded in the last 15-20 years. A few groups popped up as early as the 50's and 60's, but the 70's is when it began to really gain traction.

It's fascinating to imagine what a day in the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart must have been like. Mozart's father had a chance to experience that first-hand at the height of his son's career.
