The view from the bench

April marks the start of Year 24 for Music Near the Market. As in every April, the audience will choose the day’s music from a menu of pieces I played this past year (12 programs and 91 compositions).

May features a varied mix of too-rarely heard music by early and recent composers: lovely airs (tunes), a few dances, and a couple of complaints.

June takes us east of Berlin. I feature composers from Vienna, Prague, Tallinn, St. Petersburg, and Jerusalem. It’s hard for me to pick favorite themes, but this one is very special.
