ROB KAPILOW'S FIRST LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER TELECAST ON JANUARY 10* WILL BE SHOWN IN NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES, CHICAGO, AND KEY MARKETS THROUGHOUT NORTH AMERICA
KAPILOW'S LINCOLN CENTER PODCASTS WERE DESCRIBED BY iTUNES IN ITS CLASSICAL MUSIC YEAR-END NEWSLETTER AS ITS "FAVORITE NEW PODCASTS OF 2007"
KAPILOW RETURNS TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WITH "WHAT MAKES IT GREAT?: MOZART CLARINET CONCERTO" LIVE AT THE CERRITOS CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS ON WEDNESDAY, FEB. 27, 7:30 PM
Rob Kapilow has been performing at Lincoln Center for more than a dozen years - indeed, he is the only artist with his own annual series in the "Great Performers" series, so his first Live From Lincoln Center telecast, to air on January 10, 2008*, is long-awaited.
Public TV stations scheduled to broadcast Kapilow's Live From Lincoln Center program with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center include more than a dozen of the major markets in the country. "I Can't Believe It's Schoenberg!" - Kapilow's name for the program - makes light of the difficulty that the composer's name still causes some listeners, even today. In fact, Schoenberg's early work, Transfigured Night (Verklärte Nacht), is one of the lushest, most romantic scores in existence. Audiences all over the country will have a chance to find out exactly What Makes Schoenberg Great!
Kapilow's new video podcasts of two of his "What Makes It Great? ®" shows were listed in iTunes's classical music end-of-year newsletter as its "favorite new podcasts of 2007" and are available there and at the Lincoln Center web site for free download. The subjects are Bach's Italian Concerto and Mendelssohn's Octet.
Our favorite new podcast of 2007 features NPR commentator Rob Kapilow dissecting the works of the great composers, live in concert at Lincoln Center. It's a video podcast, so you get to watch as he and a cast of first-rate musicians give you a guided tour of the music in the first half, and perform the whole thing in the second.
