WMI PLUS At Home – Anoushka Shankar

It is always a pleasure to spend a little time with our friend, world-renowned composer and sitarist Anoushka Shankar, but to be able to do that in an intimate conversation with friend and fellow musician Priya Darshini is priceless. Anoushka shared some music and talked about her upcoming album (Love Letters P.S.) release, as well as continuing her family’s legacy as an artist, humanitarian and activist. This fantastic conversation was followed by a Q&A with those in attendance. What a treat that the World Music Institute put on here, and they have been and continue to find ways for us to stay on top of what is going on with the important bridge builders around the globe. Check out what they are doing and try to find a way to support them and spread the word.

Wisconsin Sound Series: Pro Arte Quartet

The Pro Arte Quartet (PAQ) was founded by conservatory students in Brussels in 1912 and became one of Europe’s most celebrated ensembles. Named Court Quartet to the Queen of Belgium, PAQ attracted the attention of notable composers, among them Bartok, who dedicated his fourth quartet to PAQ, and Barber, whose Op. 11(“Adagio for Strings”) PAQ premiered. Stranded in the U.S. when Nazi forces invaded Belgium in 1940, PAQ was offered residency at the University of Wisconsin, where it has remained since. One of the world’s most distinguished quartets, PAQ is the first and only quartet to reach its centennial anniversary, celebrated with new works, exhibits, a documentary, radio broadcasts, CD releases, and a new book on its storied history. PAQ’s performance is part of the Wisconsin Sound Series which showcases and supports local musicians and artists.
