Fab Four revival


Last November, Beatlemore Skidmania packed the Zankel Center’s Ladd Concert Hall—twice. The organizers, who were students in music professor Gordon Thompson’s advanced Beatles seminar, auditioned 50-plus acts to choose fewer than 20 for the show. Audiences both nights were delighted by favorite faculty bands as well as 17 student acts that rein- terpreted Beatles classics in some surpris- ing ways. Thanks to SkidTV, this was the first Beatlemore event to be live-streamed online, where 250 viewers tuned in. Pro- ceeds from ticket, raffle, poster, and T- shirt sales totaled $4,500 (double last year’s amount) for Skidmore Cares, the campuswide holiday drive that provides food, school supplies, and cash to Sarato- ga-area agencies helping people in need. —DF, SR

Skidmore debuted its latest fortepiano


acquisition with a Sep- tember concert by Krist- ian Bezuidenhout at the Zankel Music Center. Bezuidenhout, an early- music specialist, per- formed Mozart sonatas on a fortepiano modeled after a 1790-era original and then played Schu- bert’s Four Impromptus on an original Conrad Graf fortepiano recently given to the college on long-term loan. A pre- concert talk was given by Edward Swenson, a fortepiano builder and expert on Grafs. Built around 1826 and restored in 2007, the Graf has 73 keys, for a six-octave range, and is similar to the instruments used by Beethoven and Schubert. It is said to have ex- tremely clear articula- tion. —PD
