Arts and Music airing this week

Japanese woodblock prints (Ukiyo-e) depict images that evoke moments of pleasure and respite from everyday toils. In Malashock Dance's The Floating World, contemporary forms of music, dance and image-making draw inspiration from this aesthetic to reveal what it takes to create a 'façade of beauty' in the arts today. Choreographer John Malashock and UCSD-based filmmaker/projection artist Tara Knight co-conceived the work, including a four-sided video environment enveloping performers and audience. Bay Area 'avant' cellist, Zoe Keating provides the musical score and fashion icon Zandra Rhodes designed the costumes.

Malashock Dance teams with Art of Élan to create an evening of original choreography, set to live music by three of today's most exciting and appealing composers, David Bruce, Judd Greenstein, and Osvaldo Golijov. LIFEBLOOD HARMONY reflects multiple takes on our ability to remain hopeful in the face of overwhelming adversity, and that the darkest moments often lead to the greatest creative leaps. The program consists of:"At the End of a Really Great Day" - Composer: Judd Greenstein; "The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind" - Composer: Osvaldo Golijov; "Gumboots" - Composer: David Bruce.

La Jolla Music Society's SummerFest celebrates the conclusion of its 30th season with a concert featuring some of the world's best musicians performing as the SummerFest Chamber Orchestra. Led by conductor James Conlon, the Orchestra performs Schubert's "Symphony No. 5," Prokofiev's "Violin Concerto No. 2" (featuring soloist Gil Shaham), and Mozart's "Symphony No. 34."

Former Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky describes himself as a "composer" who considers poetry to be first and foremost a vocal art, and his work seeks to blur the distinctions between language and music by emphasizing the rhythms and innate physicality of recited verse in a jazz context. In this performance for the 22nd Writer's Symposium by the Sea at Point Loma Nazarene University, Pinsky's reading is accompanied by a talented trio of PLNU students. The music - a blend of rehearsed and improvised - employs a variety of jazz styles, sometimes sympathetic and sometimes in playful counterpoint, but always responsive to the poet's distinctive voice.

The serenade is a venerable 18th-century form as practiced by Haydn, Mozart and others. In his "Serenade in D Minor" Antonin Dvořák adapted the form to his own purposes, scoring for an unusual combination of instruments and introducing an unusual thematic unity. The result is a piece of good-spirited, sunny music that reflects Dvořák's own optimistic personality. Recorded on 08/20/2017.

Jazz has been hailed as "America's original art form," and the annual Jazz Camp at UC San Diego is a five-day immersive summer program designed for intermediate to advanced level jazz musicians, ages 14–adult. Students work directly with internationally renowned jazz artists, exploring styles ranging from classic bebop to contemporary open-form. The Camp culminates in a finale concert performed by eight student ensembles, each under the direction of a faculty member. This program showcases an ensemble mentored by bassist Mark Dresser. Recorded on 06/29/2018.

The Young People's Concert is a fun and informative "family-friendly" introduction to the symphony. Host/Conductor Steven Schick and the orchestra perform annotated excerpts from the 2018 season-opening concert, including Tan Dun's striking "Concerto for Water Percussion and Orchestra" and Igor Stravinsky's beloved ballet "Petrushka." The program features an audience Q&A in addition to the Conductor's commentary. Recorded on 11/2/2018.

After her debut record, new music trumpeter Stephanie Richards follows up with a premiere of works from her latest project. Using New York City as a backdrop, Richards selected poems from icons including Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou, and Allen Ginsberg to name a few, and has crafted music for quartet that explores a spontaneous prose of grit and brilliance; the ugly beauty of the city. Presented by Fresh Sound In conjunction with Hearing the Future, the San Diego Symphony's fourth annual January Festival, and the Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT) West. Recorded on 01/25/2019.

Anton Bruckner's much-revised Symphony No. 3 in D Minor is full of the composer's gloroius writing for brass instruments, coupled with large-scale thematic shifts. Recorded on 02/10/2019.

The Taubman Symposia in Jewish Studies at UCSB hosts a live musical performance by The Three Cantors: Cantor Mark Childs (Congregation B'nai B'rith, Santa Barbara) Cantor Marcus Feldman and Organist Aryell Cohen (Sinai Temple, Los Angeles) and Cantor Shmuel Barzilai (Chief Cantor of the Vienna Jewish Community). Recorded on 02/24/2019.
