Composer and conductor Pierre Boulez passed away Wednesday morning in his home in Germany.

The composer was famous for trying to modernize classical music. He was also extremely critical of what he saw as the stagnant “classical music” stereotype.

Boulez once said in an interview, "It is not enough to deface the Mona Lisa because that does not kill the Mona Lisa. All art of the past must be destroyed."

 

Live from Studio A: Barbara Furtuna

Nov 13, 2015

The Corsican ensemble, Barbara Furtuna (“Cruel Fate”), is a polyphonic group of four men mostly performing a capella, or occasionally with other instruments or ensembles. Even though the group still finds its inspiration in the island's oldest traditions, it is now also distinguished by its own creations, and offers a music that speaks to contemporary longings.

The Eero Saxophone Quartet will perform tonight at the Dendrinos Chapel and Recital Hall at 7:30pm.
The Ann Arbor based group will also be taking part in a student workshop with the Interlochen Arts Academy sax ensemble this afternoon.

The recital is free and open to the public. For more information call 231-276-7800

You may know Ana Gasteyer from her six years on Saturday Night Live, or from the movies, Broadway, or the TV show Suburbia. She's performing tonight at 7:30 at Interlochen Center for the Arts, in a show based around her album, I'm Hip.  We asked Ana to pick out a couple of her favorite tracks for the album and tell us more about the music.

To see Ana Gasteyer tonight, visit: tickets.interlochen.org.
