Today we’ve got a little bit of everything for you: LPs, CDs, 78s, 45s, and there are even a few cassettes hiding in there. Come and get it while it lasts!
Naxos Works Database includes brief biographies of over 4,000 composers and information about 67,000 works (mostly orchestral and chamber, but there’s quite a wide range covered). This will be particularly helpful for fact-checking dates of composition, writing program notes, checking approximate durations, and even helping plan programs. You can search many aspects of a piece, including instrumentation, duration, date of composition, composer’s country, and genre. So the next time you need to find a 5-10 minute German piece written in the 18th century that features mandolin, look no further than Naxos Works Database!
Need some stress relief? Come in and get a coloring page (or two or three)!
If you’re feeling really creative, you can design your own cover for The Beatles’ White Album.
Our final selection for the semester will be Skip “Little Axe” McDonald’s “The Wolf that House Built,” with discussion led by Matt Donahue, Lecturer in the Department of Popular Culture, and we’ll be meeting at 7:30p on APril 19, 2016 in the Arts Village (Kreischer Compton). RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for access to the streaming audio or if you have any questions.
All are invited and we look forward to seeing you there!
