SummerFest's long tradition of showcasing new works continues, with stimulating pieces by American composers Gabriel Kahane, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich and Aaron Jay Kernis, and French composer Marc-Andre Dalbavie.

Internationally recognized biographer Noel Riley Fitch offers some food for thought in "Sharing Julia Child's Appetite for Life," the title of her keynote address to the annual Dinner at the Library at UC San Diego. Fitch gives a revealing look into how Child's passion for French cuisine made her a culinary icon to generations of Americans. Fitch is the only biographer exclusively authorized by Julia Child; her other subjects include fellow expatriates to Paris Ernest Hemingway, Sylvia Beach and Anais Nin.

"Music of Our Time" features works by four prominent contemporary composers: "Synchronous," by Clarice Assad; "Death With Interruptions," by Derek Bermel; "Ning," by Chen Yi; and "Clarinet Quintet: Spring Ahead," by Peter Schickele.

La Jolla Symphony Chorus Director David Chase celebrates his retirement in grand style, with an eclectic selection of works inspired by love and passion. "Overture to Beatrice and Benedict" is from Hector Berlioz's opera comique, based on Shakespere's "Much Ado About Nothing." Arnold Schoenberg's tone poem "Verklärte Nacht" ("Transfigured Night") is the composer's interpretation of a German romantic poem. In "The Lovers," American neo-Romantic composer Samuel Barber sets poems by Pablo Neruda for baritone, mixed chorus, and full orchestra. Recorded on 6/11/2017.

For more than a half century, John Lithgow has been delighting audiences on stage, in movies and on television.

Recorded on 10/11/2017.
