The original Springtime in a Small Town, made in 1948, is now a classic of Chinese cinema, with its melodramatic story of an unhappily married woman who re-encounters a past lover only to learn he’s also a close friend of her husband. It was to this time-tested material that director Tian Zhuangzhuang turned for his first film after being blacklisted for his celebrated The Blue Kite (1993). Mark Lee Ping Bin’s cinematography crisply captures the uneasy calm of the brief window of time between the end of the Japanese occupation and the Revolution that brought the Communists to power and powerfully evokes the currents of unspoken desire between the film’s few characters.

Les Délices‘ (pronounced Lay day-lease) polished, expressive, and dynamic performances of masterpieces and little-known works from the French Baroque have been garnering critical acclaim. Founded in Cleveland in 2006, Les Délices brings together artists with national reputations who share a passion for this exquisite yet seldom heard repertoire. Their performances on period instruments allow them to explore a rich tapestry of tone colors, and the group’s name conveys their approach to the music of this era: a delight, a fine delicacy, sumptuous, and exciting.
