Red & The Romantics at Offbeat Roadhouse, May 31

Red & The Romantics, no stranger to WTJU listeners, will pull into Offbeat Roadhouse on Friday night, May 31, from 8-9 for a concert which will also be broadcast on WTJU.  Sure you could listen on the radio (91.1 FM) or on-line, and even video stream it, but concerts always sound better with you as part of the studio audience.

Offbeat Roadhouse takes place each Friday night from 8-9 (doors open at 7:30) from WTJU’s new performance venue, conveniently located at 2244 Ivy Road in Charlottesville (right next to Vivace Restaurant).  There is plenty of parking, so come on out to the roadhouse!

  • Franz Krommer Symphonies Emulate Beethoven

    Franz Krommer lived somewhat in the shadow of Beethoven. In 1813 he replaced Leopold Kozeluch (a rival of Beethoven’s) as the Austrian Imperial Court Composer. And that meant his subsequent symphonies, string quartets, and concertos competed with Beethoven’s for the same audience. To my ears, it’s easy to hear Beethoven’s influence in these works. Symphony […]

The challenge for May is post works for unusual solo instruments or works about solitude. Here are my selections for the final week of #ClassicalDistancing 05/25/20 Krzysztof Penderecki (1933-2020) – Cadenza for solo […]
