Hear Dancing Across Time again on May 24 at 3 pm on NorCal Public Media (KRCB 90.9 or 91.1 FM)!
On May 24 at 3 PM, tune in to KRCB FM Radio 91 for a broadcast of the November 2018 concert featuring Sharon Isbin on guitar in Villa-Lobos’ brilliant Guitar Concerto. Infused with Brazilian folk songs, this musical kaleidoscope of orchestral colors is the shimmering centerpiece of a program that dances across time. Brimming with syncopation, Kodály’s gypsy-laced Dances of Galánta sets the stage for Liszt’s intoxicating and dreamlike Mephisto Waltz. Leonard Bernstein leads us on an emotional journey through an infectious mambo, flirtatious cha-cha and a terrifying rumble before coming to a heart-tugging conclusion, aching with love and longing, in the Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.
The program for this broadcast is:
Francesco Lecce-Chong, Conductor
Sharon Isbin, guitar
KODÁLY : Dances of Galánta
VILLA-LOBOS : Guitar Concerto
LISZT : Mephisto Waltz No. 1 for Orchestra
BERNSTEIN : Symphonic Dances from West Side Story
