One of the most important pianists of his generation, Fred Hersch has traversed territory from Ornette Coleman to Thelonious Monk to Walt Whitman, whose Leaves of Grass he set to music in one of 2005's best records. In Heard Fresh: Music for Two Pianos, he covers more ground, teaming with classical pianist Christopher Riley to play music by Bach and himself. He spoke with recess' David Graham about Friday night's concert.
Attendance numbers for the Nasher Museum of Art's "El Greco to Velazquez: Art During the Reign of Philip III" did not meet an ambitious goal set one year ago.
It goes without saying-and without Dean of Admissions Christoph Guttentag's corny speech at Convocation ever year-that Duke students do some pretty impressive things, in and out of the classroom.
Silent, aromatic halls of what was once a grimy, noisy, bustling engine of economy, now a ghost town in the middle of a city: That's what Durham photographer DL Anderson captures in When the Dust Settles, on display at Through This Lens.
You might know Branford Marsalis from a variety of places-as one of the most innovative jazzmen of his generation, as Wynton's brother, from gigs on "The Tonight Show" or with Sting.
I've never understood the attraction of Chronicle columns. Reading or writing them-it seems to me that both are overrated. But sometimes it's nice to have a chance to get on your soapbox, and that's what I'm going to do with the rest of this space. Thanks for tuning in.
In case you haven't heard, and in case you didn't have enough reasons to hate the city of Chapel Hill (reason #254: It's arguably harder to park legally near Franklin Street than it is to park legally near West Campus), the fun-hating losers who govern the village down the road have decided to quash the nationally ranked Franklin Street Halloween debauchery.
Sitting in a Washington, D.C., hotel room one week before the presidential election, Billy Bragg is very afraid.
Duke lacrosse accuser Crystal Mangum broke a lengthy media silence Thursday, releasing a memoir today and maintaining that she was assaulted at a party in March 2006.
This week marked a major milestone, as recess stepped into the exciting digital future of media 2003 with the launch of The Playground (the place to go for your daily dose of recessT!), our new blog. After weeks of haranguing The Chronicle's online team and four days of panic after they called our bluff and got the site ready, we're off the ground and blogging.
And so with Tell Tale Signs, the latest and perhaps oddest volume in his ongoing Bootleg Series, the fourth (fifth? sixth?) golden era of Bob Dylan continues.
Savion Glover is like a lot of other jazzmen: He has an ambivalent relationship about the black entertainment tradition, he likes to mention late greats like Miles Davis and he has some of the blunt swagger-some might even say arrogance-of those forebears.
As much of a period piece as "The Girl from Ipanema" might be, it's still a little hard to imagine that the bossa nova genre has reached its half-century mark. Fresh, perky and always sexy by association with Brazil, it has aged well.
In honor of Yom Kippur, recess offers an Old Testament tribute to the editor's recent and total flop at selling out:
Bearing tidings of the demise of patriarchy, the Rev. Gene Robinson spoke to hundreds of students, faculty and visitors from across the state in two events in the Chapel Monday, the first day of his two-day stay at Duke.
An Episcopalian leader who has come to symbolize the debate over the role of gays in the church will be at Duke Monday and Tuesday for a variety of events with students, faculty, staff and the Durham community.
Sometimes it's enough to play music just to play music-the thrill of the score, the notes swirling in the air, the electricity between audience and performer.
As congressional leaders convene on Capitol Hill in an effort to help Americans on Main Street and Wall Street, it remains unclear what the ongoing financial crisis may mean on Campus Drive.
It's not a hot-button issue. There are no talking points, Jim Lehrer doesn't ask about it during debates and Sarah Palin and Joe Biden don't snipe at each other over it.
Duke Performances kicks off an obscurely named mini jazz festival this weekend. The name-Jazz @ Home-is meant to focus listener attention on the importance of context to the creation of music.
