Daily in Nov. Founded by Handel & Haydn Society (Boston) baroque oboist Debra Nagy, this acclaimed Cleveland-based quartet is known for programs the New York Times calls "thematically concise, richly expressive, and featuring composers few people have heard of." Tonight's prerecorded program of French Baroque music written for dancing includes Rebel's Les Caractères de la Danse, a scene from Rameau's Pigmalion, solo suites for oboe and viol by Philidor and Marais, and the earthy, rollicking dances of Boismortier's Ballets de Village.

Nov. 6, 13, 20, & 27. The son of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, this acclaimed young singer-songwriter specializes in lush, piano-based neocabaret pop ballads that he sings in what Rolling Stone calls "a rough-silk voice [that] sounds like a worn, inebriated diva sweeping down a staircase."

Nov. 27-29. Celebrated trumpet virtuoso Wynton Marsalis, arguably the biggest name in contemporary jazz, performs his own works with this polished chamber ensemble. The son of the great New Orleans jazz pianist and educator Ellis Marsalis (and brother of saxophonist Branford Marsalis), Marsalis swiftly blazed his own trail as a performer and composer, earning acclaim for his crisp, crackling notes and a full, pure tone. He's also an eclectic composer who builds on the work of the jazz masters and experiments with a wide variety of styles.
Anytime from 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 27 through Nov. 29, online at ums.org
Livestreamed rare solo performance, from the Wolf Trap in Vienna (VA), by this delightful veteran singer-songwriter brings a beautifully expressive voice, intelligent lyrics, and a subtle sense of humor to her performances, which are as much fun to watch as to hear. Carpenter's penchant for sentimental ballads ("Not Too Much to Ask") gets her categorized as a country singer, but her range encompasses everything from exuberant dance numbers ("Down at the Twist and Shout") to bluesy funk ("Read My Lips") to haunting ballads ("Only a Dream"). She's especially adept at expressing the joy, pain, and maddening frustration of love, whether in the cheeky, upbeat "Shut Up and Kiss Me" or the ruefully defiant "The Last Word." The repertoire for tonight's show spans the length of Carpenter's career.
