Dale Martellino to Discuss Her New Book 'Precious Jewels'
by BWW News Desk - Mar 10, 2017

Temple Shalom Java Cafe invites all to a community event on March 19th at 10:00 AM at 223 Valley Road, Middletown, RI. Join in welcoming Rhode Island novelist Dale Martellino to discuss her book 'Precious Jewels.' Book Synopsis: Prague is being torn apart by Hitler's army. The Jewish community is being shipped off to concentration and extermination camps. One young woman, Katarina, wants to help them. She has a position in the government social work office and forms an alliance with her superior, Mademoiselle Zelinsky. Meanwhile, Jewish underground members have secretly connected with the naïve Katarina. Zelinsky, however, has an agenda of her own - and she may lead the entire operation to ruin. Decades later, another young woman, Delilah, visits Tuscany, Italy. As she is touring the countryside with her friends and fiancé, she gets into a horrific car accident. Delilah is lucky there happens to be a doctor among the crowd of onlookers. He takes her to the convent of La Certosa di Pontignano to recover, where she meets Sister Katarina. Sister Katarina tells Delilah the story of the other Katarina and makes an unexpected connection with the young woman. The author blends history, suspense and romance in an intricate tale. She addresses the Christian, Jewish and Muslim European communities and modern issues of identity and devotion. The horrors of the Holocaust have left scars that will never be forgotten, but we should also celebrate the heroes who stood up to genocide and tyranny. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Voices of the South Offers a Riveting AWAKENING
by Joseph Baker - Apr 4, 2015

Poor 'Edna Pontellier' of Kate Chopin's THE AWAKENING - as 'corseted' by society as she is by the habiliments of the day. I'd like to imagine a tea party where she'd feel welcome. Let's see . . . whom to invite? One of Henrik Ibsen's stifled heroines - HEDDA GABLER or 'Nora' from A DOLL'S HOUSE; and there's 'Janie Crawford,' the African-American heroine of Zora Neale Hurston's THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD. What about Gustave Flaubert's MADAME BOVARY? Oh, yes, and let's not neglect the movies: Vivien Leigh's convention-daring 'Scarlett O'Hara,' her foot dancing away while she sports widow's weeds, or a black-wigged Bette Davis gyrating to get out of a small town in King Vidor's hothouse melodrama BEYOND THE FOREST. Now, that would be some group, but they'd all end up smashing the teacups. (more...)

Tina Chancey, John Mark Rozendaal, Webb Wiggins Perform In the Salon of Mademoiselle Lévi
by BWW News Desk - Apr 18, 2017

Who was the mysterious Mlle. Levi, whose pardessus playing took Paris by storm in 1745? Thought to come from somewhere in the provinces, she burst upon the Concerts Spirituels, a complete unknown; performed there an unprecedented five times in three years among such luminaries as Guignon and Leclair; and then disappeared from view, only to reappear in the Mercure Galant in 1783, advertising for pupils. There is reason to believe she was a Jewess who may have married an officer stationed in the colonies. When she returned to Paris three decades later, quite possibly widowed and penniless, did she try to rekindle the embers of her earlier success by launching her own salon, where she could perform for, and mingle with potential aristocratic students? This concert features music by Mlle. Levi's friends and contemporaries, composers as Leclair, Marais, Forqueray, Rebel and Couperin, performed by Tina Chancey on five and six-stringed pardessus de viole, John Mark Rozendaal on bass and treble viols, and Webb Wiggins on harpsichord.
