Get This Before It Disappears!

Make 2022 your best year yet and let this Moon Reading decode your destiny with precise wisdom you can’t find anywhere else!

The term “period instruments” usually brings to mind the music of the Baroque era. However, more and more often we are seeing the term applied to instruments of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Les Siécles is a period instrument orchestra known for performing music from that latter period. It recently recorded Ravel’s irreverent, one-act opera L’Heure espagnole, a highlight of this month’s reviews. The Linos Piano Trio (pictured) also gave us a notable performance of Ravel. Other new releases you might want to hear are violinist Daniel Hope’s New Music for a New Century and piano concertos by Rautavaara and Martinu played by Dalia Stasevska.
