Unlike Sharon Rockefeller's Classical WETA-FM, Beaux Art Trio, NSO, And Phillips Collection Celebrate A United And Ageless World Of Classical Music

On behalf of the Beaux Arts Trio, young violinist Daniel Hope (left) has commissioned works for Piano Trio by living classical composers György Kurtág, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Uri Caine, Jan Müller-Wieland, and Mauricio Kagel. Menahem Pressler, founding member and pianist of the Beaux Arts Trio, is in the center.

The György Kurtág "Music for Piano Trio" will be performed by the Beaux Arts Trio at the Library of Congress, next Tuesday, April 1. A snowball's chance in hell that WETA-FM President and CEO Sharon Percy Rockefeller has any interest in united and ageless classical music.


On March 14, the Post-Classical Ensemble and Mexican classical and popular singer Eugenia Leon performed the music and songs of Mexican Modernist classical composer Silvestre Revueltas at the Library of Congress. Ms. Leon has also performed living classical music at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.


German cellist Alban Gerhardt -- guest soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra -- recently performed the late Mstislav Rostropovich's own composition, Moderato for Cello, at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts -- an arts center built to celebrate the living classical and popular performing arts.


Washington, D.C. - born living American classical composer Jeffrey Mumford has received a recent classical music commission from the historic chamber music recital program of the Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C. The museum celebrates Impressionist and Modern Art and humanism, and commissions works of visual art and classical music from living American artists and composers.
