  2. Das Wohltemperierte Klavier (1st of 2)

    En français

    When we began our monthly series Once Upon the Internet last year, our intent was to use it to share some of the finds we made over the years on now defunct sites, so that other music lovers could enjoy them, or add them to their digital collection.

    For the next two weeks, I’m very pleased to bring you what I personally consider to be my “best ever find” through data mining, dating back almost 12 years now, from the original MP3.COM. Today’s discussion

  4. Cecile Licad “In Camara” at the Gardner Museum

    En français


    I first heard Filipino pianist Cecile Licad one hot mid-week summer evening at Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal over 30 years ago. On that evening, the then 20 year old played the Tchaikovsky first with the MSO under Charles Dutoit and she must have made a strong impression on the conductor, as he selected her to tour with him and his other orchestra at the time (the NHK Symphony).

  5. Once Upon the Internet: Fauré/Franck: Cello Sonatas

    En français

    Sometimes, I have presented CDs cover-to-cover on Once Upon the Internet, and this month’s installment is one of those occasions, featuring a 1987 CD I downloaded from MP3.COM more than 10 years ago.

    The CD features a then 20-year old Shauna Rolston accompanied by pianist Menahem Pressler in a chamber recording of two of the most popular French sonatas (the sonatas in A by Gabriel Fauré and César Franck), but transcribed for the cello.
