Mathew Cameron - Classical Pianist
Renown pianist Matthew Cameron joined us for the discussion on the inspiration behind great works and the inextricable influences of social currents, calamities and personal strife. A studio rendition of Chopin's Revolutionary etude flowered into a full debate on how certain works of art transcend one historical event, becoming symbols of current issues.
Memorable Moment; Cameron's painstaking admission at Philip Rosenberg’s prompting, that mixing classical music with rap for commercial appeal was like mixing fine wine with "coke". Not fair to either the wine or the cola.
Mathew Cameron, composer, and a champion of works by Chopin and Liszt has performed at Carnegie Hall, Salle Erad in Paris, and was personally invited to perform for Duke Niccolo Capponi in Italy. In his 2008 Weill Hall debut at Carnegie Hall, the New York Concert Review spoke of Cameron as “resembling Franz Liszt from the stage…he distinguished himself from his many brilliant peers by projecting a composer’s command of his repertoire.” He has three CD's released on Arabesesque records.

Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue
Join Sex and Politics as we explore the efficacy of dog-saves.

Sara Cross, founder of the Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, has more than a few things to say about this. Whether you love dogs or hate 'em, this is an interesting commentary on the social fabric and values of America.
