TONIGHT at 10pm: live interview with Steven Blier on Nueva Cancion y Demas
STEVEN BLIER is the Artistic Director of the New York Festival of Song (NYFOS), which he co-founded in 1988 with Michael Barrett. Since the Festival’s inception, he has programmed, performed, translated and annotated more than 140 vocal recitals with repertoire spanning the entire range of American song, art song from Schubert to Szymanowski, and popular song from early vaudeville to Lennon-McCartney. NYFOS has also made in-depth explorations of music from Spain, Latin America, Scandinavia and Russia. He will join us for a live interview in which, among many other things, he will talk about his upcoming concert "Cubans in Paris, Cubans at Home" featuring songs by Cuban composers.
