Our first visit back to our Echoes from the Center series takes us into the world of Classical musicians. Classical music has been an integral element of our programming for the past 45 years. It is an essential part of our audiences relationship with our center and we wanted to take a trip down memory lane.
The playlist kicks off with BLANK who was featured in our very first season in 1975. Featuring familiar artists like Garrick Ohlsson and Olga Kern, both whom have performed at least 5 times on our stage since 1995, you will hear some of your favorite pieces. Tracks from Anne-Sophie Mutter and Midori remind us of the beauty of live performance while we reminisce over the past few seasons.
A post about classical music at the Center would be incomplete without mention of Jeffrey Siegel. We recently were able to celebrate Siegel’s 50th season at the Center. While Siegel does not have his music available on streaming services, we suggest you listen to this podcast episode that he participated in a few years ago.
