An especially versatile instrument, the cello is equally at home blending into large ensembles or singing out as the lead voice in a group. But in this program, we get to hear the cello's voice all on its own. Join host Sean Fitzgerald to embark on a musical journey with Cellist James Jaffe, who guides us on a unique path through J.S. Bach's foundational works for the instrument, and then shows us how the cello's voice developed in the hands of twentieth and twenty-first century masters Gaspar Cassadó and Chinary Ung.

Raised as a Jewish kid in Queens, NY, Burt Bacharach gravitated towards music. First, it was jazz. He then went on to become a composer, songwriter, record producer, and pianist who wrote hundreds of pop songs from the late 1950s through the 1980s. His music is characterized by unusual chord progressions, influenced by jazz harmony and striking syncopated rhythmic patterns, irregular phrasing, and odd, changing meters… and yet everyone sings “I Say A little Prayer”, “Do you know the way to San José?” or “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” without skipping a beat. Come join Gilda Solve in this fun-filled hour of songs & stories that will whisk you back to a time gone by. Guests are welcome to ask questions via the chat throughout the program.
