From “Ol’ Man River” to “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” we turn to the American songbook for portraits of fatherhood, both kindly and cautionary, from down-home country to down-with-the-man rock’n‘roll and soul. We talk to the late New Orleans jazz patriarch Ellis Marsalis about family life and raising four career musicians—Wynton, Branford, Jason and Delfeayo. Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys tells of working in the studio with his dad, Chuck Auerbach, who is making his recording debut at age 68 with Remember Me. Daughter Rosanne remembers Johnny Cash’s voice and her favorite of his tunes. And Steve, Sasha and Martin Masakowski discuss playing music as a father-daughter-son trio and their different roles as family/band members. Plus, fatherly odes from the Everly Brothers, Gladys Knight & the Pips and the Drive-By Truckers.

DWFC 2023 - 13: Highlights from "Parsifal": Bayreuth Festival, 12/25/2023

From DW - Deutsche Welle | Part of the Deutsche Welle Festival Concerts series | 01:57:58

Parsifal_small You know you've composed something special when even your most vocal critics manage to find words of praise. Such was the case with Richard Wagner's last opera, "Parsifal." Written for his Bayreuth Festival Theater, the nearly five-hour-long work is a mystical drama with religious overtones set in the realm of the Holy Grail knights. This new production from the 2023 Bayreuth Festival features a star-studded cast including heldentenor Andreas Schager in the title role and Latvian soprano Elīna Garanča in her Bayreuth debut as Kundry. Jay Scheib is the director, and Pablo Heras-Casado conducts the Bayreuth Festival Orchestra and Chorus, and soloist in excerpts from the opening night performance.
