Risk-Taking Chamber Music

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, January 04, 2014

Marika Hughes knows a thing or two about chamber music: she’s the granddaughter of cellist Emanuel Feuerman, a Juilliard graduate and a former member of Quartet San Francisco. Sitting in for Terrance McKnight, she presents an All Ears playlist that celebrates the intimacy, intelligence and risk that it takes to play chamber music well.

Selections include small ensembles that perform traditional fare, pieces with less-usual instruments like the kora, and even a bit of jazz. If your musical taste is broad enough for Brahms and Gilberto, you’re ready for Marika Hughes on All Ears.

What lovely music you chose to play. The more contemporary was glorious and interesting and beautiful, and then to end with the Brahms--such a deeply satisfying choice. And the bit of Philip Glass, too. I hope you get more opportunities to do it.

Marika is an extraordinary artist herself. It's no surprise that her playlist is phenomenal - a mix of avante garde and traditional, at once new and comfortingly familiar. We love Terrance, but Marika can come back any time. Or perhaps she needs a show of her own....? Brava, darling. Brava!
