Savannah Music Festival: David Finckel & Wu Han

David Finckel & Wu Han
S

Airs Thursday, November 27, 2014. As Musical America's 2012 "Musicians of the Year," cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han rank among the most respected and influential classical musicians in the world today. Their repertoire as a duo spans virtually the entire literature for cello and piano. However is is the combination of talent, energy, imagination and dedication that they bring to their endeavors as performers, educators, recording artists, artistic administrators and cultural entrepreneurs, that make them so incredibly special. In this episode, we listen to David Finckel and Wu Han perform Strauss' Cello Sonata in F Major, Op. 6, the slow movement from Messiaen's "Quartet from the End of Time" entitled "Praise to the Eternity of Jesus," and Chopin's Sonata for Cello and Piano in G minor, Op. 65, performed during the 2013 Savannah Music Festival at Trinity United Methodist Church.

Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates: Flexing America's Muscles in the Middle East Make Things Worse

Airs Sunday, November 23 at 6 p.m. The disintegration of Iraq, Syria’s ongoing civil war, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the promise and peril of the Arab Spring...  What role should America play in the Middle East? For some America’s restraint has been a sign of disciplined leadership. But for others, it has been a sign of diminished strength and influence.  Are we simply recognizing the limitations of our power, or does this embattled region require a bolder, more muscular, American presence?

The people of Reading, Pennsylvania, didn't have the same compassion that Charlie Brown had.

As the AP reports, the tree was put up by the city in a public space and the complaints started immediately. The tree was missing tons of branches and it had unseemly shape.
