Saturdays in July
Music festivals around the world have been cancelled due to uncertainty regarding the Covid pandemic, but Stingray Classica broadcasts highlights from the most prestigious classical music festivals as part of the Festival Rewind-special, every Saturday evening in July. On July 3, enjoy the premiere of ‘Elena Bashkirova and Friends’, a fascinating concert-documentary about the rich history of the Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival. The following Saturday features a performance by cellist Sol Gabetta and a rendition of Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass, recorded at recent editions of the Lucerne Festival. On July 17, Stingray Classica premieres a performance of J. S. Bach’s popular Goldberg Variations, BWV 988, performed by Zhu Xiao-Mei at Bachfest Leipzig 2014. This recording took place in the actual St. Thomas church, where Bach spent most of his career as a musical director. The Festival Rewind-special closes on July 24 with two concerts recorded in the beautifully located Swiss city of Verbier, featuring a solo recital by Russian piano virtuoso Evgeny Kissin, and András Schiff conducting works by Mozart, Schumann, and Beethoven.
