Love Songs of
Francesco Landini

The four songstress-scholars of Anonymous 4 bring music of the Italian trecento (the fourteenth century) to Saint Paul Sunday this week, with the love songs of Francesco Landini (1325-1397). Known for the heavenly blend of their singing and thorough historical knowledge of their chosen repertoire, Anonymous 4 enlivens the poetic and musical world of Landini and the “sweet new style" that arose from his creations. Listen in as the trecento comes back to life this week.

Echo la primavera
Angelica bilta
Che chos' è quest'amor
Nella partita
Non ara ma' pieta
Nella mia vita
Ochi dolenti mie
Muort' oramai
La bionda trecca
Cara mie donna
Gran piant' agli ochi

FOG and Friendship

To San Francisco’s endless charms, fog and friendship add their own particular magic. This week on Saint Paul Sunday, Bill McGlaughlin welcomes three wonderful artists and friends who met in San Francisco, and whose initials call to mind the city’s often gauzy bayside atmosphere. The FOG Trio - violinist Jorja Fleezanis, pianist Garrick Ohlsson, and cellist Michael Grebanier - will bring music from three great works of the trio repertroire: a dashing Haydn finale, two movements of Dvorák’s extraordinarily beautiful third piano trio in f minor, and the opening allegro of Schubert’s second piano trio, the composer’s own favorite of his trios.

Miami String Quartet; Nokuthula Ngwenyama, viola
March 16, 2003

How has the New World enlivened those traditional forms inherited from the Old? This week violist Nokuthula Ngwenyama and the Miami String Quartet offer some delicious clues. The centerpiece of the program is Mozart’s first viola quintet, written when the composer was just 17 but prophetic of richness to come. Movements from two more works--Antonín Dvorák’s Opus 97 viola quintet, written during the composer’s three-year stay in the United States, and Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera’s first quartet--observe a European musical language in distinctly North and South American styles.

March 23, 2003

This week on Saint Paul Sunday, Philadelphia Orchestra principal flutist Jeffrey Khaner and pianist Linda Mark play three gems—one English, one French, and one American—of the 20th-century flute repertoire. The program leads with Aaron Copland's affecting duo from 1971, a work that bears the unmistakable imprint of the composer's later years. Francis Poulenc's 1956 flute sonata, among the most beloved works in chamber music, concludes the hour. And between the two, a 1946 sonata by Edwin York Bowen affirms why the music of this neglected post-Romantic is enjoying a richly deserved renaissance. Mr. Kahner's masterful playing lends each work his own lustrous élan.

Italian Inspiration

The liberating influence that Italian music exerted on European composers from the Renaissance through the 17th and 18th centuries changed Western music ever after. This week on Saint Paul Sunday, the great Baroque violinist Andrew Manze and his longtime harpsichord colleague Richard Egarr trace this special impact: first as it came to inspire Handel and Bach, then in the often-ecstatic fluency it assumed in the music of Pandolfi and Corelli.

George Frederic Handel: Sonata in A major, Opus 1, No. 3
J. S. Bach, arr. Manze: Toccata and Fugue in d minor (transp. to a minor)
