An Unpretentious Night With The Daedalus Quartet

Daed(alus)head Henry Litwhiler makes it to the Quartet’s (inner) circle. Something about “a setting that breaks down the barriers between audience and performers” was too good pass up. The Daedalus Quartet is well-regarded in musical circles and as close to famous as a quartet is likely to get these days, so it was surprising to see their name […]

Looking Back From The Past With Les Délices

Baroque buff Henry Litwhiler shines rare appreciation on the elegance of Ohio-based group Les Délices. Saturday’s concert, entitled “Myths & Allegories,” came as part of Miller Theatre’s “Early Music” series, which speaks volumes about the Theatre’s narrow sense of time. It was undoubtedly only with great difficulty that the Theatre capped the series with the baroque instead of extending […]

Michael Gordon Makes A Nice Satellite

Bannerman of the baroque Henry Litwhiler revisits Bach with Miller Theatre’s “Bach, Revisited” series. The title of the series is troublesome. “Bach, Revisited” implies that we had, at some point, left behind one of the greatest composers to ever put ink to paper. It implies, further, that the world had at some point deemed Bach’s works […]

Dead Man’s Cell Phone

First-time drama reviewer Robert Sheardown went to Columbia University Players’ production of Dead Man’s Cell Phone, which has its last performance tonight at 8:00 PM. Dead Man’s Cell Phone was a delightful romp through surprisingly eerie lighting, comedic yet crazed monologues, and the increasingly (albeit intentionally) annoying cell phone ringtone employed by the sound crew. Although […]

A Night With Paul Griffiths Perched Atop My Shoulders

Bwog’s resident music critic and your very own brave patron of percussion, Henry Litwhiler, braved the Miller Theatre’s Composer Portraits Series last night. He didn’t leave alone. Lest the title confuse you: the subject of last night’s Composer Portrait was (the music of) Augusta Read Thomas, a well-regarded American composer and music educator whose works have seen successful […]

Stefano Gervasoni: Modern Icarus

After muddling though Missy Mazzoli’s repertoire two weeks ago, acolyte of the avant-garde Henry Litwhiler explores the depths of masochism at the Miller Theatre’s latest Composer Portrait, Italian composer Stefano Gervasoni. Stefano Gervasoni was classically trained under Luca Lombardi, Niccolò Castiglioni, and Azio Corghi at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan and, after a career that brought him […]

Reviving The Congress Of Vienna

Bwog sent its Matternich correspondent Anna Hotter to report back from the Faculty House about the first day of the conference.  “The Congress of Vienna looks better after 200 years than it did after 100,” Robert Jervis tells the room when asked to assess its historical […]
