Simone Dinnerstein fondly recalls one very hot rehearsal in Old Havana / NPR


Last month, American pianist Simone Dinnerstein was in Cuba preparing for her current North American tour with an orchestra of young musicians from Havana. She fondly recalls one very hot rehearsal. She says -  "I feel like I've known Cuba for most of my life. When I was nine years old, my piano teacher Solomon Mikowsky, a Cuban Jew of Polish descent, told me stories of growing up in Havana. When I finally visited there myself in 2013, I fell in love with this city filled with music and appreciative audiences. I've been back several times: to record my latest album, Mozart in Havana, with the Havana Lyceum Orchestra, and just last month to rehearse for our current North American tour."

Black Violin brings classical music to DCJazzFest / AFRO review


The cool breeze off the Potomac River convinced the crowds at this year's D.C. Jazz Festival from June 9-18 to dance – even as the temperatures crossed 90 degrees – as soon as "Kev Marcus" Sylvester and Wilmer Baptiste hit the stage.  Known as Black Violin, Sylvester and Baptiste have found and perfected a meticulous mix of classical music with hip-hop, as well as jazz, soul, R&B, rock and pop. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla. natives met at performing arts high school Dillard High School, where they impressed classmates by playing popular hip-hop songs on their instruments – Sylvester on violin; Baptiste on viola.  More than a decade later, they continue to insist they are hip-hop first, before classical.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Broadway Cast Recording gets ✭✭✭✭✭ from britishtheatre.com


I was a HUGE fan of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when it opened at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane with a score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. Audiences were presented with a theatrical extravaganza, but what really struck me was the fabulous score which used only one song from the Gene Wilder film. Shaiman and Wittman had pulled off the near impossible by channelling the Wonka zeitgeist, creating new music for Charlie of the same calibre and Bricusse and Newley's original film score. I was therefore interested to hear that for the Broadway production changes were to be made. More song moments from the film have been integrated, numbers from the London score cut (luckily the London cast album exists!) and new songs written. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial; min-height: 11.0px} span.s1 {font: 10.0px 'Zapf Dingbats'} Christian Borle takes over the spoon of iconic chocolatier Willy Wonka and his performance is nothing short of spectacular. His tooth-tickling-tongue-twisting-triptastical performance is mesmerising. His laser-sharp diction in songs like Strike That  Reverse It is superhuman and would put a certain modern major general to shame. There's sarcasm, humour, and enormous amounts of warmth in his performance iced with a demented frosting and it comes across in droves on this recording. Borle's interpretation of the show's new finale The View From Here and the classic Pure Imagination alone place him alongside Gene Wilder and Douglas Hodge as encapsulating the magic of Dahl and Wonka.

Linda Eder set for NYC's Feinstein's/54 Below / Playbill


Linda Eder, star of Broadway's Jekyll & Hyde, is returning to the New York cabaret stage with a newly re-orchestrated show of songs from throughout her career. She will appear 7 PM June 29 and 30 at Feinstein's/54 Below in Manhattan. The award-winning performer told Playbill that instead of focusing on songs from her most recent CD, 2015's Retro, she will perform "a variety from my many different albums." Among her planned songs are a number of time-related hits from throughout her concert and recording career, including "It's Time," "This Time Around," "Till You Come Back to Me," and a medley with "The Best Is Yet to Come" and "Time After Time." She said, "I have changed up my instrumentation and so, along with the piano, bass and drums, I will be using three horn players instead of guitar because I am bringing back some of my past album cuts where we used big band arrangements."  Eder's New York shows include: July 14-15 Vinegar Hill Music Theatre in Arundel, Maine July 24- 25 Paramount in Provincetown, Massachusetts  August 3 DFW Food & Wine Festival in Dallas, Texas  October 6 F.M.

Stephen Edwards - Requiem For My Mother is KDFC: Download of the Week


American composer Stephen Edwards works primarily in film and television (Dallas Buyers Club, Supernatural, The Meddler), but the death of his love for his mother provided the impetus for a major new Requiem. A ground breaking event, staged in one of the most beautiful and sacred places in the world, the Basilica of St. Ignatius of Loyola in Rome, the Requiem For My Mother concert production featured the 160-voice Continuo Arts Symphonic Chorus, including their 60-member children's choir, and the 50 piece City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of Candace Wicke. The 11-movement work commemorates Edwards mother, and her influence on him – both personally and professionally – from his first music lessons as a child to his career as a professional film score composer.

Terry Barber set to perform - The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber in the northeast / Digital Journal


Following tour dates around the world from Carnegie Hall to Moscow's Svetlanov Hall, past member of the multiple Grammy-winning Chanticleer, Terry Barber, performs The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber at three intimate theaters in the northeast. The rarest voice type in the world, Terry Barber is a countertenor, which means he can comfortably sing in the range above tenor, where women are typically heard.  FRIDAY JUNE 30 8:00 PM SELLERSVILLE THEATER, 24 WEST TEMPLE AVENUE, SELLERSVILLE PA
SATURDAY JULY 1 3:00 PM & 8:00 PM MILTON THEATRE, 110 UNION STREET, MILTON DE
SATURDAY JULY 2 7:30 PM INFINITY MUSIC HALL, 32 FRONT STREET, HARTFORD CT "The extreme range of style in Lloyd Webber's compositions is what excites me about performing this work," Barber explains. "From the rock sound of Jesus Christ Superstar, to the traditional musical theater sounds in Evita, to the more classical sounds in The Phantom of the Opera, I'm able to share songs written for the baritone through soprano voice, and also a broad range of entertaining characters from romantic leads to villains." Barber has a voice that spans more than four octaves. The show will include hits from ten of Lloyd Webber's most beloved shows including "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera, "Heaven On Their Minds" from Jesus Christ Superstar, and "Memory" from Cats in addition to other selections from Evita, Sunset Boulevard, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Requiem, and more.

Avital Meets Avital

Two superb musicians of international stature – classically trained mandolin player Avi Avital and jazz bassist Omer Avital – have combined their creative energy and set out in search of their cultural roots on Avital Meets Avital, set for release on June 2 on Deutsche Grammophon. Avi Avital and Omer Avital share no blood relation, though their musical careers have intersected and ultimately were rooted in the same place. Both musicians have parents of Moroccan descent who immigrated to Israel in the 1960s and both went to conservatory, one for jazz, one for classical.

Danny Elfman :

Rabbit & Rogue

Sony Classical announces the release of Rabbit & Rogue. This Limited Deluxe Edition offers a variety of insights to the production of his first ballet score, including a bonus DVD with an exclusive interview with Danny Elfman. The composer commented - "The creation of this ballet score was done hand in hand with a remarkable woman, Twyla Tharp. Every note, every beat. She encouraged me, challenged me, cajoled me, and even fed me. It was one of the best times I have ever had working. For her trust in me I will be forever grateful. I dedicate this recording to her." Rabbit & Rogue is Danny Elfman's first ballet score, which he created for Twyla Tharps' choreography for the American Ballet Theater. By all accounts, Elfman wrote a score that wears his admiration for the Russian ballet masters, such as Stravinsky and Prokofiev, proudly on its sleeve.
Olafur Arnalds :

Broadchurch - The Final Chapter

While avid US fans await the return of Broadchurch to BBC America this year, they can get a taste of the "bona fide national obsession" (Entertainment Weekly) in BAFTA-winning composer Ólafur Arnalds' brand new soundtrack for the third and final season, Broadchurch: The Final Chapter. His atmospheric music sets the scene for the third and final series of the hit ITV drama, starring David Tennant and Olivia Coleman.  Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall is a fan of Ólafur Arnalds and listened to his music when writing the show's script. "Ólafur's music just broke my heart," he said. "I instinctively felt if we could get him, it would be amazing." Three series later, the pair have forged a strong creative collaboration. Deemed crucial to the show by fans and critics alike, Arnalds' evocative music combines contemporary classical influences with avant-garde electronics and ambient sounds.
