A Sondheim Evening

Sunday, July 5 at 8pm

Stephen Sondheim has gone from cult figure to national icon. His melodies, which have been labeled “unhummable,” get under your skin and linger for days. Spend an evening with “the greatest living American composer after Copland.”

Canadian composer Colin McPhee discovered a whole new world of music when he visited Indonesia for the first time.  This morning we'll enjoy one of those tropical-inspired pieces.   

The Long Island town of Brookhaven has plans to buy and demolish seven houses damaged by Superstorm Sandy.  The shoreline houses are currently owned by the state of New York. After the December 2012 storm, the state determined they were at high risk of flooding and bought the homes from their owners.

The shoreline cottages sit on marshland in Mastic Beach, a village in Brookhaven. The Long Island Nature Conservancy plans to partner with Brookhaven to demolish the homes and return the area to its natural state as marshland.  

We're counting the days until the summer solstice, and this evening you can enjoy an impression of a languid summer day with the Symphony No. 9, "In the Summer," by Joaquim Raff.  

Today we'll hear how Rachmaninoff made a solo piece for violin by Paganini even harder for pianists, in a performance by Jean-Yves Thibaudet.
