March and April 2013 




The WWUH/ Celtic Airs benefit concert series has a feast of shows to entertain you in the next two months! Please take advantage of these opportunities to see some of the best Celtic musicians touring the world today right here in you own back yard.



                                                    Goitse, March 8th, Wilde Auditorium                                           

                Goitse returns on March 8th. Goitse means "come here" in Irish, and we would like to invite you to do so that evening. The band's debut album was recorded in 2010 while they were all students in the prestigious Irish World Music Academy at the University of Limerick. Since then, they have become one of the most sought after young  bands among connoisseurs of Irish traditional music.

                Among those impressed by the talent and stage presence of Goitse was the legendary Donal Lunny. He selected Goitse's Tadhg O'Meachair to be the pianist for his "Lorg Lunny" project, an RTE television series that chronicled the formation and development of a band called Ciorras. When the time was ripe for Goitse to record their second album, it was Donal Lunny they asked to produce and mix the CD. The result was "Transformed", released to critical acclaim in late 2012. In his review of the album for Irish Music Magazine, John O'Reagan stated "Goitse has clearly transferred from the periphery to the big league."  Sean Laffey, editor of Irish Music Magazine added "They are glowing examples of the potential energy locked up inside Irish traditional music, and they have the spark to make it explode."

                The band members include Colm Phelan from Portlaoise on bodhran. In 2006, he hit the trifecta, winning the first World Bodhran Championship, and later that year, the second of two consecutive All Ireland Bodhran titles.

                Aine McGeeney is the band's vocalist and fiddle player. Her voice has been described as "sweet and charismatic with an attractive innocence that draws audiences into the performance." She is also an energetic, high octane fiddler with remarkable stage presence gained from her time with Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance. Most recently she has become a highly regarded composer of new tunes in the traditional style, many of which are featured on the two Goitse CD's.

                Conal O'Kane grew up in South Philadelphia, but spent his summers in his father's home town of Buncrana, Co. Donegal where he began learning traditional Irish tunes on the fiddle. By 17, he had switched his efforts to the guitar. After finishing high school, he enrolled in the BA program in Irish Music and Dance at the University of Limerick where he met his future band mates.

                The afore-mentioned Tadhg O'Meachair has won the All Ireland piano title and is also a gifted piano accordion player. The band's usual banjo player, James Harvey, is still a student at the University of Limerick and unable to be part of this tour. He has been replaced by Matt Griffin, a 2009 graduate of the University's Irish World Music Academy with first class honors. He has already toured with other well known Irish musicians including Michael McGoldrick, Seamus Begley and the Chieftains!

                Siobhan Long, music writer for Dublin's Irish Times, says "Goitse perform with the wisdom of musicians with many more miles beneath their belts." Come see for yourself when Goitse appear in the University of Hartford's Wilde Auditorium on Friday, March 8th at 7:30 PM




                                           Dervish, March 23rd, Lincoln Theater


                We have a post St Patrick's Day treat in store for you on March 23rd when Dervish appear in concert at the University of Hartford's Lincoln Theater, a new venue for the Celtic Airs concert series. This band is reputed by many to be the best Irish traditional band touring the world today!

                The band's origins go back to 1988 when Liam Kelly, Shane Mitchell, Michael Holmes, Brian McDonagh and Martin McGinley were asked to record an album of traditional Sligo music that was eventually called "The Boys of Sligo." The "boys" came up with the name Dervish at that time. In truth though, their relationships go back much further. Mitchell and Kelly were already playing traditional music together in primary school, and at ages 10 and 12, appeared on RTE radio. While in high school, at ages 16 and 18, they appeared on the legendary Gay Byrne's Late Late Show with their band Poitin. While in college, they met another Sligo native, Michael Holmes, and with vocalist Yvonne Cunningham formed a band called Who Says What? Holmes and Kelly then moved to London, but returned to Sligo often to re-unite with Mitchell and yet another Sligo resident, Brian McDonagh. At just 16 years of age, in the late 1970's, Brian, his older brother and Geraldine McGowan formed the group Oisin, one of the seminal bands of the Irish traditional music revival. So you see, the band members were very comfortable and familiar with each other by the time they recorded "The Boys of Sligo" and became Dervish.

                Though the band has been together for over 20 years now, there have been very few line up changes. Singer Cathy Jordan, from Roscommon, joined the boys in 1991 and their first album "Harmony Hill"  was released in 1993. Fiddler Shane McAleer replaced Martin McGinley in 1991 and was himself replaced by current fiddler Tom Morrow in 1998. There have been no other changes in the line up except for the short tenure of Seamie O'Dowd, another Sligo native, in the early years of the new millennium.

                The first Dervish concert in America took place in the University of Hartford's Wilde Auditorium on June 6, 1996 and they have made it a point to return to their American birth place as often as possible. This year's concert on 3/23/13 will be the final stop on a nation wide tour designed to promote their new studio album (title not available at "press time"). If you've seen Dervish live, I know you'll be there. If you've yet to see them in person, add that to your "bucket list" and make it happen this year!




                                            Litha , April 5th, Wilde Auditorium


                April 5th, 2013 will see the concert series debut of the band Litha (pronounced Leef-a), but we have met all four members during appearances with other bands. Claire Mann (flute, fiddle, whistle, backing vocals) appeared with Tabache and the Christy O'Leary band. Aaron Jones (bouzouki, guitar, lead vocals) has been here with Craobh Rua and the Old Blind Dogs. Gudrun Walther (Lead vocals, fiddle, accordion) and Jurgen Treyz (guitar, dobro, backing vocals) are members of Cara who have appeared twice in our concert series.

                Claire and Aaron met in the thriving Edinburgh folk music scene twelve years ago. Since then, they have been performing a mixture of traditional Scottish and Irish music and song as a duet and produced and album called "Secret Orders" in 2005. Sean Laffey, editor of Irish Music Magazine, said "Aaron is one of the best bouzouki players I have ever seen." To second that opinion, the Scots Trad Music Awards named Aaron it's Instrumentalist of the Year in 2005.

                Gudrun and Jurgen have long been regarded as two of Germany's leading folk musicians. Gudrun has been playing fiddle since age six and performing professionally since age nineteen. In addition to her work with Cara, she has also been a member of the multi-national ensemble More Maids. Jurgen perfected his guitar playing as a university student in Munich, then opened a recording studio to promote the musical careers of German folk musicians. Prior to his co-founding of Cara, he was the leader of the highly praised German traditional band Adaro

                Litha came into being at a European folk festival in 2006.Under the name Two Duos they released a debut album in 2009 called "Until the Cows Come Home." It wasn't until 2011 that their name evolved to Litha. Litha is and Anglo-Saxon word that represents the season of light, festivals and music, very appropriate for the time that the band's members first met. They released their second album "Dancing of the Light" in 2012. With great stage presence, two fantastic lead singers, tight four part vocal harmony singing, fiery fiddle, flute and accordion and a dream team rhythm section, there's nothing this quartet can't do!!

                I encourage you to come  and enjoy some old friends in a new guise when Litha makes it's Celtic Airs Concert Series debut , Friday April 5th at 7:30 in the Wilde Auditorium.



Jim Malcom  

                                            Jim Malcolm, April 26th, Wilde Auditorium


                Speaking of old friends, Jim Malcolm will return for his third solo concert here on Friday April 26th. He has also performed here as lead singer of the Old Blind Dogs on a number of occasions over his eight year tenure with that Scottish folk band.

                Jim is both singer and songwriter, the ultimate Scottish troubadour. He has one of the most distinctive voices in Scottish music and is in of the top handful of simultaneous guitar and harmonica players in the world. His concerts are always highly entertaining, the music peppered with Jim's funny stories and observations. In fact, he has developed his between song wit into an art form all it's own! "A Jim Malcolm concert is quietly and undeniably stunning." (Mojo Magazine)

                Jim has been a professional musician since graduating from Edinburgh University and over the years has released ten solo albums, both before and after his time with the Old Blind Dogs, with whom he released four band albums. In 2004 he was voted "Songwriter of the Year" at the Scots Trad Music Awards. He is also a noted interpreter of the songs of Robert Burns, culminating in an entertaining DVD called "Bard Hair Day; The songs of Robert Burns".

                Over the years, reviewers have showered Jim with accolades: "The new voice of Scotland" (Radio Scotland), "One of the finest singing voices in Scotland" (Living Tradition), "A pure warm folk voice that one never tires of listening to." (Dirty Linen), "Persuasive vocals and sheer irrepressible rhythm." (Rock 'n' Reel).

                I'm sure you too will be singing his praises if you take the opportunity to see Jim Malcolm in concert at the Wilde Auditorium Friday April 26th at 7:30 PM.



                Tickets for the WWUH/Celtic Airs Concert Series are only available from the University of Hartford box office, open 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM Monday-Friday.

Sunday Afternoon at the Opera

Your Lyric Theater Program

With Keith Brown

Programming Selections for

March and April 2013



SUNDAY March 3rd

Massenet,Thais    Why broadcast this opera,one of Massenet's greatest and best known,during Lent? Well,its story deals with religious devotion,and with monks and nuns who lead the religious life.Thais (1894) is based on a novel by Anatole France about religious hypocrisy. The Alexandrine courtesan Thais,born and baptized a Christian,has lapsed into paganism.The monk Athanael redeems her and she dies in a convent while he is confessing that all along he was mad with desire for her.Massenet's music so well depicts Alexandria as "Sin City" in the titularly Christian Roman empire of the  fourth century AD.His orchestration is colorful and lush;even the vocal lines are luscious to listen to.Athanael is one of opera's finest roles for baritone,and many divas have taken on Thais to popular acclaim.American soprano Anna Moffo is heard opposite the French baritone Gabriel Bacquier in a 1975 RCA Red Seal release on three stereo LP's.Julius Rudel conducts the New Philharmonia Orchestra and Ambrosian Chorus.Oh,yes...the solo violinist is Desmond Bradley in the famous and often excerpted "Meditation" orchestral interlude.

   Today "Sunday Afternoon at he Opera" participates in Marathon 2013,this station's week of intensive on-air fundraising.I will be going on mike to urge you listeners to phone in your pledges of financial support to my "lyric theater" program and the entire weeklong lineup of classical music programming here at 91.3 FM.You faithful listeners have never failed to help us meet or even exceed our fundraising goals  in Marathons past,so I thank you in advance fro your generosity.  

Sunday march 10th 

Part,Creator Spiritus,etc.,Vigneault & Fecteau,Grand Messe.The Estonian-born  Arvo Part (b. 1935) is arguably the most important living composer of Christian religious music.In 2010 Harmonia Mundi USA came out with a single disc compilation of Part's compositions for voices and strings.The release is part of HM's ongoing Arvo Part series.This particular release takes its name from the 9th century Latin hymn Veni Creator Spiritus invoking the Holy Spirit in Part's 2006 setting of the first and fourth verses of the hymn.The longest piece on this disc is Part's 1985 Stabat Mater,taking as its text the medieval devotional poem describing Mary's emotional state as she beholds her Son crucified.Some of the compositions in this compilation are performed by the six-voice chamber group Theater of Voices,led by its founder Paul Hillier.Hillier also leads the larger choral group Ars Nova Copenhagen.Certain pieces were originally written for voices,then transcribed for strings.in this case the string players being the NYYD Quartet.About this music and this HM disc,Fanfare magazine's reviewer Lynn Rene Bayley writes,"The most extraordinary quality of this music is its calming,healing effect...this disc is a perfect antidote to the ugliness and greed throughout all societies..."(Fanfare,Nov/Dec,2012 issue.)

    The Canadian province of Quebec remains staunchly French speaking and Roman Catholic.Vigneault and Fecteau's Grand Messe (2008),which premiered at the Quebec Festival of Sacred Music,is an expression of that Gallic cultural heritage.Songwriter and poet Gilles Vigneault (b.1928) and his arranger,Bruno Fecteau (1959-2011),professor at the Quebec Conservatory of Music,are natives of French Canada.Their Grand Messe builds upon the familiar Latin components of the Mass,rendered into French language,with two interpolated passages in a Native American tongue (this in recognition of the province's ethnic diversity).Musically speaking,the Grand Messe is entirely accessible and replete with melody.It may remind listeners of the pop style of the Welshman Karl Jenkins' works for chorus and orchestra,which often include lyrics in Welsh.Richard Lee directs the Symphony Orchestra of Quebec and the vocal ensemble Le Choeur de L'Osq,with seven solo singers.Grand Messe was recorded live in concert by the Canadian Broadcasting Company and was released on a single CBC Musique compact disc.


Sunday March 17th

Dvorak,Saint Ludmila On this last Sunday in Lent I'm bringing out for a third airing our station's old Supraphon recording of Antonin Dvorak's oratorio St.Ludmila.I had presented this same three-LP set on two previous occasions during the Lent/Paschal season,first on Sunday April 6,1986 and agin on March 11,2007.A thousand years ago the pagan Czechs received Christian missionaries from the West,representing the Roman Catholic faith,and from the East,bearing with them Slavonic Orthodoxy.A Bohemiam princess names Ludmila sided the the proselytizers from the East.A power struggle ensued within the royal house of Bohemia over the conversion of Ludmila to Orthodox Christianity.She was assinated and soon came to be revered as a holy martyr.The cult of St.Ludmila served in later centuries as a rallying point for Czech nationalism.Her martyrdom was exactly the right subject for the leading nineteenth century Czech nationalist composer to set to music.Dvorak's St.Ludmila premiered in Birmingham.England in 1886 with great success.(The English public have welcomed new oratorios like this since the time of Handel,and the Victorians also very much liked Dvorak's music.) Supraphon,the old Czechoslovak state record label,recorded this masterwork in1965,when Vaclav Smetacek conducted the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus,with five vocal soloists.


SUNDAY march 24th

Wagner,Parsifal,ACT ONE,Keiser,Passion Music For a third time this Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday we will take part in a sacred drama in music based on the medieval legend of the Holy grail,the wine cup Jesus passé daround among his disciples at the Last Supper just prior to His Crucifiction.Richard Wagner's last opera,his masterpiece of Romantic mysticism Parsifal (1882) is too long in complete recorded performance to be accommodated in one Sunday's timeslot.For Wagner,like so many other nineteenth century Romantics,art was his religion.The Festspielhaus at Bayreuth was his temple.There Parsifal premiered and there it was staged exclusively for the following three decades.I first presented Parsifal  at Palm Sunday/Easter of 2008 making use of a 2006 Deutsche Grammophon recording from the Vienna State Opera and starring tenor Placido Domingo in the title role.Then at Palm Sunday/Easter of 2011 came a concert version of Parsifal recorded at St.Petersburg,Russia in 2009 with the orchestra and chorus of the Mariinsky Theatre conducted by Valery Gergiev.Marek Janowski is on the podium leading the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and Berlin Radio Chorus in another concert performance of Parsifal given in Berlin's Philharmonie Hall on April 8,2011.Tenor Christian Elsner is the holy fool Parsifal,heard opposite Michelle DeYoung as the temptress Kundry.The German Pentatone released this recording on four CD's in 2012 as part of their series of Wagner's most famous operas,all these releases looking toward the bicentennial of the composer's birth in 2013.

   There's time remaining this afternoon to listen to sacred music in the North German Lutheran tradition.Reinhard Keiser (1674-1739) was the leading composer of German opera at the beginning of the eighteenth century.Many of his works were staged at Hamburg's "Goose Market" theater.He also wrote cantatas,oratorios and Passions for the churches of the city.Keiser's sacred works are an extension of his operatic style.A motet/cantata from circa 1700,a large fragment of a St. Luke Passion and a major part of a Passion oratorio from 1715 were recorded for the German cpo label in 2009 in the St. Johannis church in Hamburg.Thomas Ihlenfeldt directed the period instrument players of the Capella Orlandi Bremen,with seven vocalists trained in Baroque singing practice.The cpo survey of Keiser's Passion Music came out on a single silver disc in 2010.


Wagner,Parsifal,ACTS TWO & THREE



Handel.Solomon "To my mind Solomon is probably the most magnificent...of all the Handel oratorios,"so wrote conductor John Eliot Gardiner about his historically-informed recorded interpretion of the oratorio for the PHILIPS label.I broadcast his period instrument Solomon on vinyl discs way back on Sunday May 4,1986.You get to hear it again today in its 2006 compact disc release in the PHILIPS "Digital Classics" line.The original recording was made in London following Gardiner's performances of Solomon at the 1984 Gottingen Festival of Baroque music in Germany.Gardiner leads the period instrumental ensemble he founded,the English Baroque Soloists,with the Monteverdi Choir and a lineup of vocal soloists that included English soprano Carolyn Watkinson as the Hebrew king Solomon,soprano Nancy Argenta as Solomon's Queen and tenor Anthony Rolfe Johnson as Zadok the Priest.Handel's orchestral scoring for Solomon is more colorful than that for Messiah.In fact,Messiah lacks the sharp delineation of character to be found in the vocal parts for the Queen of Sheba and the two harlots,so typical of Handel's Italian operas.The dramatic situation of the quarrel over the infant,with the king's surprising judgement,was irresistible to Handel's operatic imagination.Beyond that,the overall effect of the oratorio is that of a celebration in music of Hanoverian England,also known as the Augustan Age of the mid eighteenth century. (Solomon premiered at Covent Garden in 1749.) I value historical authenticity,yet on Sunday April 2,1989 I broadcast a set of early stereo LP's of Sir Thomas Beecham's modernized rescoring of Solomon,with Beecham leading his own Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Beecham Choral Society.



Gounod,Romeo et Juliet I getback this Sunday to Sony Classical's current series of broadcast airtapes made live in performance at the Metropolitan Opera.The mono or early stereo sound on these old tape reels from the Met's archives has been digitally remastered for issue in compact disc format.The old tapes captured for posterity what some consider to be the Golden Age of opera singing in the first half of the twentieth century.Charles Gounod's Romeo et Juliette (1867) was recorded live on stage on February 1,1947.Emil Cooper conducted the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus.The incomparable Swedish tenor Jussi Bjorling is heard as Romeo,opposite Brazilian soprano Bidu Sayao as Juliet,a role in which she specialized.To the delight of audiences,Bjorling and Sayao were frequently paired in Met productions in the 1940's.


 Verdi,Il Trovatore Here's another gem in the Sony Classical series "The Metropolitan Opera." This one was taped live in performance at the Met on February 4,1961.The veteran Italian conductor Fausto Cleva took charge of the Met Orchestra and Chorus.Getting top billing in the singing cast are Italian tenor Franco Corelli as Manrico and the American mezzo Leontyne Price as Leonora.This particular item in the Sony "Met" series came out in 2011 on two compact discs.



Sullivan,Ivanhoe In the history of English opera Sir Arthur Sullivan's "serious" romantic opera Ivanhoe (1891) remains misunderstood.It was Sullivan's lifelong ambition to write an opera in the grand vein.Even Queen Victoria seems to have encouraged him to do so;he dedicated the score of Ivanhoe to her.As soon as the Gilbert & Sullivan comic collaboration The Gondoliers (1889) was done with,Sullivan set to work in earnest on his masterpiece.For its premiere production the impresario Richard D'Oyly Carte built the Royal English Opera House,which still stands in London.No expense was spared on Ivanhoe.This lavish production ran for a very impressive run of 155 performances.It was surely a success,and was revived the following season for 44 more shows.Then the public lost interest in it,and so apparently did Sullivan,who failed to promote it further.A large-cast grand operatic show like this was difficult to stage in the provinces.Ivanhoe got lost in the theatrical shuffle and was forgotten by the time Sullivan died.There have been occasional amateur stagings of Ivanhoe over the years;the opera had to wait until 2009 fro its world premiere professional unstaged recording for the UK label Chandos.David Lloyd-Jones conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Adrian Partington Singers.Wilfred,Knight of Ivanhoe is tenor Toby Spence,heard opposite soprano Janice Watson as Ivanhoe's truelove the Lady Rowena.Ivanhoe the opera captures and distills quite successfully into operatic form the novel by Sir Walter Scott,thanks to the astute libretto by Julian Sturgis.Sullivan's music is as reliably melodious as anything he wrote for The Gondoliers.If you love the G & S comic operas,you will love the music you hear of Ivanhoe.

   That Chandos recording of Ivanhoe comes from my own collection of opera on  compact disc.So does the PHILIPS CD reissue of Handel's Solomon.All the other recordings you'll hear in this two-month period of programming are to be found in our station's ever-growing library of classical music recordings.Thanks to our WWUH operations director Kevin O'Toole for assisting me in the preparation of these notes for cyber-publication.
