Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Friday, 2/14 & Tuesday, 2/18

The major obstacle to the great Jean Sibelius-Stephen Riley saxophone concerto project seems to have been the fact, contrary to the photographic evidence, that they were never at any point alive at the same time, so Updoc—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, New York Astral Fluxtime—has had to settle for a couple of tracks from Riley’s brilliant new album, Lover, and a performance of the Sibelius Fifth Symphony with that old darling Herbert Von Karajan conducting Britain’s Philharmonia Orchestra in a better performance of the piece than he ever managed with his hometown Berliners. What else we got? Danilo Perez’s new Panama 500 album, a knockout Azeri jazz pianist, Simone Dinnerstein’s superlative new recording of Bach’s two and three part Inventions, Bartok at his most celestial, and to set an impeccable seal atop the whole, Ben Webster. Hard to find a better beast than that, this tough winter. You really must go? Baby, it’s cold outside.SibeliusRiley*

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri., 4/25 & Tues., 4/29

For the second time this month Updoc—8PM Friday and noon next Tuesday, Fillmore East time—starts off with two rarities from Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane followed by a track from the recent unedited reissue of Miles Davis live at the Fillmore East in 1970, this time an epic version of Bitches Brew; after which the show gives up all pretense of thematic continuity while maintaining, I hope, the show’s (I hope) usually high standards with Schnittke’s 2nd String Quartet performed in American-powerhouse mode by the Kronos, some new Ambrose Akinmusire, some older Jesse Winchester, and a much older Ballade in F Minor by Chopin. The big finish arrives via Christopher Rouse’s Third Symphony played by the NY Philharmonic under Alan Gilbert: a piece that begins assaultively but shows its big heart before it’s over. Rouse’s Requiem will be premiered on May 6th at Carnegie by the same ensemble, and if you can’t get there you might bend an ear toward WQXR, online or through the air, in the interest of catching a broadcast of it before too long. Rouse is one of our great composers, and his Requiem should be a whopper.

Cliff Furnald’s RootsWorld Radio

RootsWorld Radio #100, Wednesdays 5pm (Eastern) & Saturdays 8am
Since this program went on the air on March 3 of 2012, I have been pleased to present artists from all over the world; music that defies genre and geography, ideas that embrace both the traditional and the new.  One of the things I have tried to do on RootsWorld is to occasionally present special live songs or sets by some of these great artists, and I thought our centenary program might be a great time to look back on some of those performances. So, our 100th edition of RootsWorld Radio celebrates with some of the live music we’ve been privileged to share with you over the last 2 years, with music by Sacha Silva, AcquaAria, Guy Klucevsek & Todd Reynolds, the band that would become SANS,  Monsieur Doumani and Svøbsk. Find out more online at www.RootsWorld.org
Thank you for your support these last two years, and I hope we’ll share many more.  – Cliff Furnald

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Friday 4/18 & Tuesday 4/22

How do you follow the opening choruses of Bach’s St. John and St. Matthew Passions? If you’re doing an Easter-Passover show like Updoc—8PM Friday and noon next Tuesday, East New York time—you turn to Soeur Marie Keyrouz keening the Easter music of the Oriental churches, John Coltrane soliloquizing Love, Elijah the prophet between sips of everyone’s seder wine, Jesse Winchester being Quiet About It, and Robeson and Mingus meditating on Moses; after which Poulenc’s spare, austere Stabat Mater commands the space until the Gloria from the Missa Solemnis sends a skyrocket straight to heaven. The show ends with the last two movements of the B Minor Mass. If that’s the kind of thing you want to listen to this time of year, this is where you’ll find it.
