Live at Classical 101

For many instrumentalists, the idea to "sing through your instrument" is just a figure of speech. But for Cleveland-based Ogni Suono saxophone duo, it's an actual way of life.

Earlier today in the Classical 101 studios, madness reigned supreme.

It's always a good time in the Classical 101 studios — but it was an especially good time recently when things here got a little jazzy.

Actually, more than a little.

Columbus is becoming a hotbed of new music activity, and flutist Lindsey Goodman is right in the thick of it.

Last Friday afternoon, Classical 101 really did go for Baroque.

Our crew went to Capital University’s Mees Auditorium for a rehearsal of acclaimed ensemble REBEL Baroque and two of the world’s foremost Baroque dancers, Paige Whitley-Bauguess and Thomas Baird.

This week, I had the pleasure of talking with JoAnn Falletta. Music director of both the Buffalo Philharmonic and the Virginia Symphony orchestras, Maestra Falletta is in Columbus to conduct the Columbus Symphony, 8 p.m. Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3 in the Ohio Theatre.

Think you know what a string quartet sounds like? Quartet Davis might have you thinking again.

Founded at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Quartet Davis blends a classical string quartet sound with influences from jazz, bluegrass, R&B and folk music to create a truly unique musical experience. This creative, young quartet joined me last week in the Classical 101 studios for an intimate interview and performance.

This morning the ProMusica String Quartet—violinists Heather Kufchak and Will Manley, violist Brett Allen and cellist Cora Kuyvenhoven—joined me on Classical 101 to chat about ProMusica's Saturday performance and to play highlights from a couple of the works on the program.

The award-winning, Montreal-based early music ensemble Infusion Baroque performed live in the Classical 101 studio this morning, and we captured the performance—and the dish about composers doing things they shouldn’t do—on video.
