This month, in addition to our continuing arc around concertos and our yearly Lenten Organ series, I will have a Tuesday arc dedicated to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, which will be augmented in my monthly “Classical Hubub” with past Bach posts..
- March 6 – Sinfomie Concertanti will present works that could very well be concertos, by Joseph Haydn, Benjamin Britten and Vincent d’Indy. http://itywltmt.blogspot.com/2015/03/sinfonie-concertanti.html
- March 13 – Concerto Solo presents a pair of solo piano pieces that were nicknamed as such by their composers, Charles Alkan and Robert Schumann. http://itywltmt.blogspot.com/2015/03/concerto-solo.html
- March 20 – Concertos without a soloist are works that follow the tried and true formula of the “Concerto Grosso” by Antonio Vivaldi, Igor Stravinsky and Bela Bartok. http://itywltmt.blogspot.com/2015/03/concertos-without-soloist.html
- March 27 – Organ Concertos (a contribution to our Lenten Organ series) are all works that feature the organ accompanied by orchestra from Francis Poulenc, Paul Hindemith and Joseph Jongen. http://itywltmt.blogspot.com/2015/03/organ-concertos.html
- March 3 – Podcast Vault Selection of the Month – the first of two such selections this month provides us the opportunity to reconsider our montage of J. S. Bach’s violin concertos from 2013.
