Hampson Sisler, organist and composer, is one of the most prolific composers today with over 100 works to his credit.  His works were written for organ, chorus, concert band, chamber and symphony orchestra.  

At 17 years old, Hampson was the youngest person ever awarded the American Guild of Organists’ coveted Fellowship status and has had performances of his works the world over.

Today, in addition to being a composer, Sisler maintains a dual career as an organist and choral director. He has served seventeen churches, most notably Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, where Abraham Lincoln was an occasional attendee, and Central Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, where Charles Ives served in the same position in the early 1900s.

Currently, Hampson Sisler is the music director at the historic St. James Episcopal Church in Elmhurst, New York. His recent compositions have been performed in Bulgaria, Israel, Czech Republic, Russia and the United States. The majority of his orchestral works have been recorded on the MSR Classics label. Mr. Sisler is presented world-wide by BV Artists International.

Classical Music Discoveries is proud to begin this 8 part series on Hampson Sisler which will detail his life and his music.  A new episode will be broadcast each month.

To learn more about Hampson Sisler, just click on his website link appearing below at any time during the broadcast or visit www.BVArtistsInternational.com

Sonja Beets is one of those rare people that has received an abundance of talent in all of the arts.  Whether Sonja composes, paints, writes poetry, or stories, you can be sure she will excel at it.

As Sonja writes about herself:

During the whole lifetime of composer Sonja Beets the bond between nature and music pushed her creations in a new lyric style based on traditions. After studying different instruments the piano, organ and harp, those studies gave her the abilities to write for different instruments and voices. The strong musical expressions, her empathy and knowledge, make it comfortable for musicians to perform her music, which is always loved by the audience.

To help our listeners see and hear what a unique talent she is, we will play several works composed by Sonja and while her compositions are playing, we will show you paintings also created by Sonja and also several photos of her.

At any time during this broadcast, just click on the name of the composition and you will be directed over to Sonja’s website to learn more about her.  Or, if you are streaming this on Facebook or another provider that does not show our hyperlinks, just go to her website at www.SonjaBeets.eu

Now, Classical Music Discoveries is proud to present to our millions of listeners all over the world, Sonja Beets.

Jérusalem is a grand opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi. The libretto was to be an adaptation and partial translation of the composer's original 1843 Italian opera, I Lombardi alla prima crociata. It was the one opera which he regarded as the most suitable for being translated into French and, taking Scribe's advice, Verdi agreed that a French libretto was to be prepared by Alphonse Royer and Gustave Vaëz, who had written the libretto for Donizetti's most successful French opera, La favorite. The opera received its premiere performance at the Salle Le Peletier in Paris on 26 November 1847.

This performance is by the CMD Grand Opera Company of Venice.  You can purchase this recording for only $1.99 at our online store  - www.ClassicalRecordings.co - just click on the hyperlink appearing below on our title page if streaming online.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
