Draped in nostalgia and covered in memories, Craigie paints a beautiful homage to the Golden State, with the assistance of singer Gregory Alan Isakov." – Impose Magazine "You can be sure I'll be on the lookout for anything he does from now on." - No Depression ***LONG BIO*** Renowned for his eloquent Americana style, engaging live shows, and off-the-cuff clever observations, John Craigie carries on the legacy of classic singer-songwriters, while blazing a trail of his own. Recently, that trail twisted and turned into new territory for the Portland, OR performer who The Stranger appropriately dubbed, "the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg." His music speaks loud to both audiences and fellow artists. Todd Snider notably hand-delivered a gift on-stage, and Chuck Norris has sent fan m... (read more)

Composer + Holocaust Victim, New York Premiere at Meisel Gallery - Louis K. Meisel Gallery
April 17, 2019 - New York

Composer Viktor Ullmann is one of the most notable of the artists who continued to compose while entrapped in Nazi concentration camps.

Ullmann wrote and premiered music while imprisoned in the Nazi concentration camp Terezin (Theresienstadt) before he was ultimately murdered in a gas chamber at Auschwitz. Pianofest in the Hamptons will present the New York premiere of one of Viktor Ullmann's works written in the concentration camp, The Tale of the Love and Death of Cornet Christopher Rilke for Narrator and Piano, on Wednesday, April 17, at the Louis K. Meisel Gallery in SoHo (141 Prince St, New York, NY 10012).

Archduke Rudolph: Beethoven’s Pupil and Patron - Bohemian National Hall
April 17, 2019 - New York

Ignat Solzhenitsyn, piano Korbinian Altenberger, violin Na-Young Baek, cello Illustrated talk by Ignat Solzhenitsyn PROGRAM Beethoven Violin Sonata No.10 in G major, Op.96 Beethoven Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 97 “Archduke” The most significant of Beethoven’s noble patrons during his years in Vienna was Archduke Rudolph of Austria, youngest brother of the Emperor Franz. Beethoven began teaching Rudolph piano in around 1803–04, and the archduke later became his sole composition student. He was also the only one of his patrons whose financial support continued uninterrupted until the composer’s death. Beethoven generally scorned aristocrats, but it appears his relationship with Rudolph was different. In the composer’s own words, the archduke treated him ‘like a friend, not a servant’. Beethoven dedicated fifteen of his most important works to Rudolph (more than to any other individual), including the Fourth and Fifth Piano Concertos and, following the archduke’s appointment as a cardinal and then as Archbishop of Olmütz in 1819, the Missa solemnis. In this programme we present two of the chamber works dedicated to him – the Violin Sonata in G major, Op. 96 and the ‘Arc... (read more)

April 18, 2019 - Manhattan

Pablo Heras-Casado returns to OSL to conduct this program exploring Haydn's influence on 20th-century neoclassical composers.

International guitar hero and member of historic groups Canned Heat and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers With bristling energy, unflagging virtuosity and lyrics that cut to the core of human hope and willpower, Walter Trout's new album, Battle Scars, chronicles his horrific battle with liver failure. But the 12-song set, which will be released worldwide by Mascot Label Group's Provogue Records on October 23 also captures the international guitar hero, on a new high — playing and singing at the peak of his abilities, infusing even his darkest numbers with creative joy that sweeps like a beacon. "I'm thrilled about this album, about my life and about my music," says Trout, who returned to the stage in June at the prestigious Lead Belly Festival in London's Royal Albert Hall. "I feel that I'm reborn as a songwriter, a singer, a guitarist and a human being. I have a new chance at being the best musician and the best man that I can be. And I'm incredibly happy and grateful."
