Close Encounters With Music will present its final concert of the season on June 8 at 6 p.m. at Tanglewood’s Ozawa Hall in Lenox, Massachusetts. The program highlights the instrumental and vocal music of Edvard Grieg, the national composer of Norway, and works by Johannes Brahms and Henrik Ibsen. The program also features Shakespeare & Company’s Tina Packer as special guest narrator.
WAMC's Alan Chartock discussed the concert with WAMC friend Yehuda Hanani, founder and artistic director of Close Encounters with Music. Hanani is familiar from his regular Roundtable segment “Classical Music According to Yehuda.”
