Music Academy of the West presents selection of streams from MARLI (Music Academy Remote Learning Institute)

(Various streams now available; website)

The Music Academy of the West nimbly transitioned to become the Music Academy Remote Learning Institute (MARLI) this summer, when forced to cancel the 2020 Summer School and Festival in Santa Barbara, CA. Aptly taking its theme as innovation, MARLI's pioneering six-week program offered an inspiring model of just how much distance-learning can deliver. Now available to audiences worldwide, the program featured a diverse array of artistic and educational video content. Highlights include a piano recital by faculty artist Jeremy Denk, a chorus from Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel featuring the elementary school students of the Academy's Sing! program, and a presentation of MARLI's Digital Challenge winners, for which applicants were instructed to create three- to seven-minute videos combining musical excellence with technological proficiency, creativity and innovation.

(This Sunday, Aug 2, at 12 noon EDT [9am PDT; 6pm CEST]; livestream; Facebook + web site)

In Hope@Home on Tour, British violinist Daniel Hope takes his innovative new livestreamed TV series out of his Berlin living room and on the road. Still offering half-hour episodes of live musical performance and conversation in English, all professionally produced for the German/French ARTE TV network, the hit series' new iteration has been streaming live twice a week, on Saturdays and Sundays, from a succession of visually compelling locations, many of which are not open to the public. This Sunday, in the 27th and final episode of the touring series (and the 70th since Hope@Home began), Hope heads to the historic Beethovenhaus Bonn, of which he is president. There, in Beethoven's birthplace, he will be joined by pianist Kirill Gerstein and baritone Matthias Goerne for a program centered around the composer's music. Goerne will sing lieder with Gerstein, who also plays Beethoven's "Moonlight" Sonata and joins forces with Hope for violin sonatas by Bach and Beethoven and Hebrew Melodies by Joachim, Hope's idol, who served as first president of the Beethovenhaus. Hope@Home on Tour streams live on the ARTE Concert website and Hope's Facebook page. All past episodes are archived for 90 days in the ARTE Media Library and can be accessed here, and the accompanying Deutsche Grammophon album, Hope@Home, is available for pre-order here.
