Recently, PT was on location at the 2015 Grand Teton Music Festival for 'A Night with Performance Today.' Listen to live music and conversation from that event, including on stage performances of Douglas Hill's Bass 'n' Brass Trio and Robert Schumann's Three Fantasy Pieces.
On stage with Joel Noyes and Donald Runnicles
Normally, when you talk about Donald Runnicles and his involvement in the Grand Teton Music Festival, it's because he is the festival's artistic director. For this performance, Maestro Runnicles stepped of the podium to play piano and chat with Fred about his 9th year as artistic director. Cellist Joel Noyes shared the stage and talked about what it's like playing music with the "boss."
On stage with Gail Williams, Larry Zalkind, and Andrew Raciti
Bass, trombone, horn, and a bunch of percussion - that's what's required of this Douglas Hall composition. And in the hands of these Grand Teton Music Festival veterans, this Latin jazz-influenced piece definitely comes to life. Listen to Fred chat with the trio about how this piece came together, and their new-found respect for their fellow musicians in the percussion section.
