Very nice evening. Especially liked the French songs, even though my French is only good enough to pick out words here and there. Gigi's voice is particularly suited to these, making them a magical moment in the show (probably also because of her French heritage and background). Brava! The arrangements by her husband/musical director also have some nice chord progressions reminiscent of Sondhiem.

February 7, 2014: Gloria Cheng
Gloria Cheng returns to Boston Court and the harpsichord for a second edition of The Intrepid Harpsichord program featuring some of the most beloved and audacious works from the past and present. The program will include Michelangelo Rossi's daring Toccata Settima from 1634, works by various members of the Couperin family, and contemporary works by Luciano Berio, John Harbison and Carolyn Yarnell. Ms. Cheng’s double-manual instrument was constructed in 2012 by her husband, Lefteris Padavos, on a model created by the 18th-century French master harpsichord builder, Pascal Taskin (1723-1793).

Modern feminist troubadour Cris Williamson’s original songs explore her favorite people and places. With 30-some recordings to her credit, Cris Williamson is best know for her classic album The Changer And The Changed. Released in 1975 on Olivia Records, this music became the soundtrack of a movement, and was key in the launch of what would become known as “women’s music,” music which was created, performed, and marketed specifically by and for women. Today, this record remains a favorite of so many people, and one of the best-selling independent releases of all time.
