On THE CONCERT (1600), Musicians from Malboro render works for string quartet and string quintet by Dvořák — Two Waltzes, Op. 54, and the String Quintet in E-flat, Op. 97, B. 180. As the story goes, Dvořák was immediately taken with the simple, pentatonic folk songs he heard during his time in Spillville, Iowa, and this delightful string quintet does indeed sound distinctly “American” from the start, despite its foreign authorship. ...

FIESTA! (1400) features newly composed works and arrangements. Astor Piazzolla composed his Études tanquistiques (or Tango Etudes) in 1987. These etudes were originally written for solo flute or solo violin and became popular among oboe players as well. By conceiving the piano parts to accompany these Piazzolean theorems on tango melody Argentine pianist, bandleader, composer and arranger Octavio Brunetti (1975-2014) performed a subtle exercise of what it could be called “recomposition”.

A joyful Christmas cantata follows on our BACH CANTATA OF THE WEEK (1500) — "Christen, ätzet diesen Tag" (Christians, etch this day).

From concerts the week of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA program (1300) shares a memorial to the president by Stravinsky with a text by W.H. Auden, from a performance which closed with a moving and intense performance of Mahler’s final completed symphony. The program includes another rarity, this time by Mahler and intended for his First Symphony: the movement titled Blumine (Bouquet of Flowers) featuring principal trumpeter Chris Martin. Michael Tilson Thomas conducts each work. The trumpeter is again brought to the fore with his brass section-mates in two works from their 2011 recording on CSO Resound, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Brass Live.

CHAMBER MUSIC IN PROGRESS (1500) follows with a program of festive seasonal compositions ranging from a bounty of Bach to the brilliance of brass, and including sacred and secular Cantatas as well as keyboard specialties.
