Sunday Spotlight for May 24, 2015

Hi all,

Been out of town/busy this last couple weeks – I’d hoped to have some spotlights queued up, but didn’t manage to, I’m sorry! But we’re back this week, and starting off with a video of Prokofiev playing his Prelude, Op. 12 No. 7. This particular prelude (the 7th of 10) was written for piano OR harp, and I played it at my concerts here and in Rio. Fun to hear the composer himself play it…

Next, an interesting article about a recent performance of Monteverdi’s “L’Orfeo”
