Beethoven on the Bluff - Violin/Cello II
The Beethoven duo cycle featuring pianist David Allen Wehr with guests Noah Bendix-Balgley and Anne Martindale Williams continues with the beloved 3rd Sonata for cello and piano, one the composer's most spacious and melodically appealing works. The Op. 30 violin sonatas were written when Beethoven was facing the crisis of his increasing deafness and the professional challenge of breaking out of his extremely successful early music to create a more dramatic and poetic style.

Music of the Beatles
Mike Tomaro directs the Duquesne U. Jazz Ensemble. The concert covers all eras of the Beatles, including two approaches to their music. The first involves exact transcriptions from the recordings: vocals, guitar, bass, drums, piano, strings, horns, etc., says Tomaro. The second approach is more jazz-oriented in which Tomaro freely twists and turns its elements to fit his jazz sensibilities.
