DAVID ALLEN WEHR


An all-Rachmaninov re-stream on Zoom in collaboration with the 
Philadelphia Chamber Music Society!

Pianist CYNTHIA RAIM is acclaimed for her concerto, recital, and chamber music performances throughout the United States and abroad and has recorded for Gall, Pantheon, and Connoisseur Society, including solo albums of Ravel, Schumann, Brahms, and Schubert and two-piano recordings of Rachmaninoff, Brahms, and Dvořák with David Allen Wehr.
She is a native of Detroit, where she studied with Mischa Kottler, Ms. Raim studied with Rudolf Serkin and Mieczyslaw Horszowski at the Curtis Institute of Music, where she earned bachelors and masters degrees.
 
DAVID ALLEN WEHR

DAVID ALLEN WEHR's performance career has taken him on tour to over 30 countries in Europe, North and South America, and the Far East, including performances in the world musical capitals of New York, London, Paris, Vienna, Washington, Madrid, and Buenos Aires. Wehr has been soloist with the London Symphony, National Symphony, Chautauqua Symphony, Houston Symphony, New Zealand Symphony, and all the major Spanish and Latin American orchestras.

PROGRAM

All Rachmaninov program!

Suite No. 1 for Two Pianos, Op. 5

Fantaisie tableaux Rachmaninov: Duets, Op. 11 [Sel.]

Rachmaninov: Suite No. 2 for Two Pianos, Op. 17

LiveARTS and PCMS favorite Cynthia Raim is joined by her longtime piano partner, David Allen Wehr, for a rarely-heard, two-piano, four-hands, all-Rachmaninov program. Lauding the duo's recording of the Suites for Two Pianos, a Pianoforte critic raved: "Here are two fine artists who sound as if they might have stepped right out of a Russian academy. They allow the composer's melodies and phrases a natural shape without ever imposing technique on them, with a great feeling of contrast, light and shade."

Jazz Journey– with Pamela Hines

Welcome Pamela! by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director 09/27/2020

This week we welcomed a new two-hour program to Franklin Public Radio –

Jazz Journey, with accomplished jazz pianist Pamela Hines. She takes us on a richly insightful tour of jazz, its history, with an array of great performances by artists of a groundbreaking era – the 40s to 60s. She features the Big Bands, and the women who fronted them with memorable performances, be they silky smooth or smokin’.

Who is Pamela? Go to: http://pamelahines.com/ 

From her WICN interview –

H. Allen Williams: What does the word “jazz” mean to you?

Pamela Hines: The fundamentals of it – improvisation, chord structure, form, history, rhythm… creativity to its maximum that connects to the limitless divine nature in all of us.

H. Allen Williams: If you were speaking to a youthful audience, that knew nothing about jazz or your experience as an artist, what would be the most important message you would desire them to gain from your music?

Pamela Hines: Come to all new types of music with an open mind. Start simply. I feel like we actually need to “develop” our ears.   That’s why vocal jazz is sometimes a good connector, because young audiences have the lyric to hold on to. Then you slip in a few unusual chords, keep it going and you’re on your way to a jazz fan.

= = = = = =

The piano is among the most expressive of jazz instruments, and Pamela is right there with exquisite technique and emotion. She moves easily among other gifted greats of jazz; Tommy Flanagan, Patricia Barber, Tatum, Guaraldi, Brubeck, Monk, et al. Jazz fans will know her simply and reverently as – Hines.



Ah, yesss – Hines.

Pamela knows how to bend a piano to her will – and all that jazz.

And – as always –
Thank you for listening to wfpr●fm. 
And, thank you for watching. 


When can you listen to Pamela?  Tuesday:  9:00 AM / 12:00 PM / 6:00 PM

FM #324 Memory Cafe Music Session - 7/27/20 (audio)

FM #324 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 324 in the series. 


This session shares the Franklin Senior Center “Memory Cafe” music session held on Monday, July 27, 2020. Ariel Doggett introduces Ray Valente who plays some toe-tapping music. He introduces each song with an anecdote or bit of interest about the song.


While everyone was muted during the concert, there was plenty of singing and dancing. At the end, Ariel took the mute off so all could thank Ray with a round of well deserved applause.


The concert runs just about 60 minutes, so let’s listen to Ray Valente play his music.
