A Preview of the 1974 Cabrillo Music Festival with Dennis Russell Davies

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 30 min
Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA

Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer, conductor, pianist, and festival director, Dennis Russell Davies about the 1974 Cabrillo Music Festival, which was scheduled to start a few days after this August 8th interview was recorded. Under Davies’ direction the 1974 Festival promised to be more than just a series of concerts of classical music standards. Not only was the Festival to expand its footprint by performing concerts in a number of different locations, including the Mission District of San Francisco, but also by highlighting the works of Franz Schubert, Max Lifchitz, and the contribution of women composers and conductors, both in the 20th century and before. Other concerts were to feature works by Bruno Maderna, a challenging piece by Charles Ives, and other extraordinary works. Davies also gives a brief report on his recent activities, including the re-creation of a concert originally put on by John J. Becker in honor of his good friend, and one of the five, great, early American composers, Charles Ives.
