A Classicalite favorite, Vijay Iyer, has recently been experimenting with new sounds on his latest LP Mutations. And with an upcoming stint at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) entitled RADHE RADHE: Rites of Holi from Dec. 18-20, Iyer is demonstrating that the MacArthur Genius' music is forming a language all its own.
Just in time for the holidays, Classicalite is excited to present the video premiere of The Boys of St. Paul’s Choir School singing “O Come All Ye Faithful,” from their critically acclaimed debut Christmas album Christmas in Harvard Square.
If you haven't been on the Lang Lang train lately then you may want to board at the next station--and that station is non other than our C-Lite A.V. Club. With some exclusive clips from Lang Lang, premiering his ninth grade protégé Clayton Stephenson there's little to hinder the steep rise of the classical pianist.
Ian Williams, erstwhile guitarist in math rock pioneers Don Caballero, has been busy as of late--working on a new Battles record, writing his first piece for the American Composers Orchestra to perform at Carnegie Hall, fathering his first child. With Classicalite favorites George Manahan behind the podium, Theo Bleckmann on vocals and members of the Meredith Monk Vocal Ensemble lending support, Williams debuted his Clear Image work during the ACO's Orchestra Underground: Monk's Sphere, opening night of that storied ensemble's 38th season. We recently caught up with Williams to chat about his rocker past, the ACO collaboration, having a daughter and even his cameo in High Fidelity.
