3rd Streaming with Gary Chew - June 10

In the early 80s, a foreign film titled Diva came to America. In that slightly off-center movie for most Americans, there was an aria sung by Wilhelmenia Wiggins Fernandez that riveted anyone who happened to be listening: Alfredo Catalani's haunting solo piece for soprano from his opera "La Wally." That and birthday salutes to Igor Stravinsky, Cole Porter, and Chick Corea are on Gary's agenda. More soundtrack music rounds out this week's 3rd Streaming: Jean-Yves Thibaudet at the piano with the English Chamber Orchestra plays selections from the totally excellent film directed by Joe Wright: "Atonement," which was and remains a winning piece of cinema. Listen for music from the movie, composed by Dario Marinelli. If you haven't seen this 2007 release... do.
