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

    Falstaff is an opera in three acts by the Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi. The libretto was adapted by Arrigo Boito from Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor and scenes from Henry IV, parts 1 and 2. The work premiered on 9 February 1893 at La Scala, Milan. Verdi wrote Falstaff, which was the last of his twenty-eight operas, as he was approaching the age of eighty. It was his second comedy, and his third work based on a Shakespeare play, following Macbeth and Otello. The plot revolves around the thwarted, sometimes farcical, efforts of the fat knight, Sir John Falstaff, to seduce two married women for mercenary reasons.

    Boito persuaded Verdi out of retirement to compose the opera, which took the collaborators three years from mid-1889 to complete. Although the prospect of a new opera from Verdi aroused immense interest in Italy and round the world, Falstaff did not prove to be as popular as earlier works in the composer's canon. After the initial performances in Italy, other European countries and the US, the work was neglected until the conductor Arturo Toscanini insisted on its revival at La Scala and the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Some felt that the piece suffered from a lack of the full-blooded melodies of the best of Verdi's previous operas, a view strongly contradicted by Toscanini.

    Verdi made numerous changes to the music after the first performance and editors have found difficulty in agreeing on a definitive score. The work was first recorded in 1932, and has subsequently received many studio recordings and live recordings.  The most recent recording is by the CMD Grand Opera Company in Venice and is available at Classical Music Discoveries.

    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
