(via Ravinia Festival - Official Site | Javier Perianes)
Javier Perianes also plays the Ravinia Festival on August 20, at Bennet Gordon Hall!
"A recipient of Spain’s National Music Prize, pianist Javier Perianes makes his Ravinia debut performing selections from his latest album, ‘… les sons et les parfums’, juxtaposing works by Chopin and Debussy. Both composers are well-known for delicate melodies and rollicking folk- and dance-inspired pieces, which are also the calling card of Perianes’s countryman Falla, whose music will close the program.

Stile Antico: Tiny Desk Concert - NPR Music
For #ThrowbackThursday, why not revisit Stile Antico's lovely Tiny Desk Concert at NPR Music from 2010?
‘FROM THE IMPERIAL COURT: MUSIC FOR THE HOUSE OF HAPSBURG’
Lucid and fresh-sounding, the young, prolific vocal ensemble Stile Antico sings an intriguing program of 15th- and 16th-century works written for the Habsburg courts of Europe. The group is particularly superb, with tremendous dynamic range, in motets of mourning like Pierre de la Rue’s “Absalon fili mi” and Alonso Lobo’s “Versa est in luctum” (though Costanzo Festa’s sober “Quis dabit oculis,” given a radiant performance, is incorrectly attributed to Ludwig Senfl).
