Welcome to “Simply Sonatas at Sainer” presented by La Musica International Chamber Music Festival in Sarasota Florida.

The “Simply Sonata” Series features La Musica musicians performing duets in a smaller theater giving the audience a closer feel to the musicians and thus being more intimate with the music being performed.

First we will be pleased to hear Prokofiev’s “Sonata for Two Violins in C Major, Op. 56” performed by Claudio Cruz and Cecilia Ziano.

Then we will hear Brahms’ “Sonata in F minor for Viola and Piano, Op. 120, No. 1” performed by violist Bruno Giuranna and pianist Derek Han.

The final piece will be Barber’s “Sonata for Cello and Piano in C minor, Op. 6” performed by cellist Antonio Meneses and pianist Derek Han.

We would like to thank Sally Faron and the staff at La Musica International Chamber Music Festival for allowing us to broadcast their concerts on our show.

American composer, conductor, orchestrator and producer Dan Redfeld has had his music and arrangements performed internationally from the concert hall to the musical theater stage to the recording studio.

About his work “A Hopeful Place” Dan writes:

“I was asked to compose a work for voice and chamber orchestra to be premiered by Ensemble Green, a Los Angeles based group of musicians committed to playing new concert pieces.  I immediately contacted John and proposed we collaborate on a work for Kristi Holden.  Fortunately for us both, she enthusiastically said “Yes!”  John and I quickly settled on a nine movement structure and the idea that the listener would follow a woman’s cycle of life from birth to death.”

Concerning the debut performance Dan continues:

“I conducted Kristi and eighteen musicians on that night in a premiere performance one cannot forget.  The entire evening was beset with a series of surreal events and yet we made it through to a prolonged standing ovation.  That night reflected what the piece is about - Life.  Sometimes its easy, sometimes its a struggle.  But the human spirit continues.

To learn more about Dan please visit his website at www.DanRedfeld.com

His CDs are available on Amazon and Itunes.

We want to thank Dan Redfeld and Parma Recordings for making it possible for us to broadcast this recording to our listeners.

Rienzi, the Last of the Tribunes; WWV 49, is an early opera by Richard Wagner in five acts, with the libretto written by the composer after Edward Bulwer-Lytton's novel of the same name. The title is commonly shortened to Rienzi. Written between July 1838 and November 1840, it was first performed in Dresden, on 20 October 1842, and was the composer's first success.

The opera is set in Rome and is based on the life of Cola di Rienzi, a late medieval Italian populist figure who succeeds in outwitting and then defeating the nobles and their followers and in raising the power of the people. Magnanimous at first, he is forced by events to crush the nobles' rebellion against the people's power, but popular opinion changes and even the Church, which had urged him to assert himself, turns against him. In the end the populace burns the Capitol, in which Rienzi and a few adherents have made a last stand.

In this broadcast we are pleased to present a One Act Chamber Opera by Ezra Donner entitled Antigone.

Ezra describes this opera in this way:

"I have always been attracted to the idea of telling a story through music, and the idea of writing an opera based on a Greek drama has had particular appeal to me for some time. Remembering from music history that opera began as an attempt to imitate the theatre of the Ancient Greeks, I thought it would be an interesting experiment to re-visit an original Greek drama in a musical context closer to our times.

The name “Antigone” means “unyielding”. In a way, she is a great role model for artists: a person who challenges the status quo and goes face-to-face against conventional wisdom, holding fast to her own personal beliefs no matter what. In the same way I feel that we as artists need to continue to produce work which we believe has meaning and worth, regardless of reactions from the general public,patrons, and other artists.

Although the original drama is now over 2,000 years old, its central themes continue to resonate with us in surprising and meaningful ways. My musical setting attempts to bring together musical styles of centuries past with a contemporary idiom to highlight the timelessness, and timely relevance, of this text."

The libretto is adapted from the ancient Greek drama by Sophocles.

What do we do in our spare time here at Classical Music Discoveries?
Well, its all about the music, of course.

Here is a very unusual show we did for Newspaper Carriers!

Face it, it can get a bit boring and tiring out there at 3:00 AM folding, bagging and delivering those newspapers.

This music was created to keep the carriers awake with GOOD music (none of that hard rock stuff). Plus it allows the carriers to keep track of their progress.

This is based on a 4 hour shift. The first hour (spent folding, banding, bagging papers) is all soundtracks. The next 3 hours (delivery time) is all about really upbeat dance music and some really quirky stuff thrown in (like "Pineapple Princess" sung by Annette Funicello). Plus the last song is "Smile" reminding everyone to return home (after a long night) with a smile on their face.

There is NO narration for promos in this as it is 100% music!

Dedicated to the thousands of newspaper carriers out there. We know many are musicians that believe in working for a living and not asking for federal funds for support. We appreciate all musicians everywhere that support themselves with hard work. Performing all night then after the gig, delivering newspapers.

We salute you!
