Lauren Shauer: I’m Lauren, a 4th year majoring in criticism (it’s a very prestigious program). My eyes are two different colors (as a kind, random stranger once called, “dog eyes”). I’m from North Carolina, which I’m strangely proud of. It’s probably because the Cookout milkshake was created there. I also have a phobia of men wearing sweatpants. Hit me up if you ever want to talk about solving racial/socioeconomic inequality….

Peter Stebbins, the amalgam of Catherine and Steve, has been described as “about equal to the sum of his parts.” A 4th year sociology major, he strongly believes in the power of music as simultaneously therapy, an aphrodisiac, a motivator, and laxative. As co-host with Lauren Schauer of the new program, “Stebbins to the Schauer,” he aims to provide listeners with an eclectic mix of melodies to fit the rhythms of their lives.
Hobbies include, but are not limited to, thinking of puns, locating baked goods, and running off said baked goods.

Some of Keene’s better known album covers include […]

  • Charles Villiers Stanford Piano Trio 2, Piano Quartet 1

    To my ears, Stanford’s music has always sounded like Brahms with an Irish accent. That’s not a bad thing. Like Brahms, Stanford constructed his music within accepted classical frameworks. But within those frameworks he crafts his motifs and harmonies with a great deal of imagination. Which is what makes this new Naxos release a pleasure […]

  • Piano Quintets by Pierné and Vierne

    The pairing of these two French piano quintets is a logical one. Gabriel Pierné studied with Gabriel Fauré, and Louis Vierne audited his courses as a teenager (Vierne was to formally study with Fauré but Fauré died shortly after Vierne was enrolled). And superficially, both quintets share similarities with Fauré’s style. Both works share a […]
