The Well-Tempered Ear

Classical music: As the semester ends, concerts are stacking up at the UW School of Music. Just look at all the concerts on this Sunday.

ALERT: A reminder that the UW Pro Arte String Quartet (below, in the Chazen Museum of Art) will perform this Sunday from 12:30 to 2 p.m. on Wisconsin Public Radio‘s live broadcast “Sunday Afternoon Live From the Chazen.” The program includes works by Mozart, Franz Joseph Haydn and Franz Schubert (“Death and the Maiden”).

It seems to happen every year.

As we reach the end of the semester, concerts stack up and get scheduled for the same day as time runs out.

(I think UW-Madison rules require all concerts to take place a week before the end of classes and the beginning of the study period for final exams. That’s why the last big concerts are the two performances in Mills hall on Dec. 7 at 8 p.m. and Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m. of Brahms’ “German” Requiem by the UW Choral Union and the UW Symphony Orchestra. I will have more on that in a few days.)

In any case, this Sunday is a good example for choral and brass music.

Take a look at the events, all of which are FREE. (And they don’t include several more student recitals, which are listened on the Events Calendar at www.music.wisc.edu. There you can also find links to biographies and information about conductors and members of the faculty and staff.

Sorry, no programs of repertoire have been provided.
