Classical Music on Naxos

Immanuel AxThe upcoming appearance at CSS by pianist Emanuel Ax  provides a good opportunity to remind you of the library's subscription to Naxos -- a streaming classical music service which includes thousands of recordings from major labels and artists. The database has over 30 recordings by Emanuel Ax, including all seven of his Grammy winners. Mr. Ax's Duluth recital will be at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 25 in Mitchell Hall.

Please remember to log-off after listening to a song in order to allow others to listen.

John Steffl (1948-2018)

The Library was saddened this summer to learn of the passing of the artist, John Steffl, who spent time at the end of his career teaching here at the College of St. Scholastica. Mr. Steffl was a highly regarded artist who spent 12 years with the Duluth Art Institute as curator, artistic director, and ultimately executive director. The John Steffl Gallery at The Depot was named after him when he left the Art Institute in 2002.

Several years ago, Sarah Brokke Erickson--assistant professor and director of the Art program at CSS--included a striking portrait (above) of Mr. Steffl in her book, Portrait of an Artist.  The work is in our collection (call no.: ND1329 .B758 A4 2015), and includes portraits of other area artists and authors including CSS faculty members Pat Hagan, Ryan Vine, and Po-Lin Kosuth (retired).

There will be an exhibit of Mr. Steffl's works at the North Shore Bank of Commerce (131 W. Superior St.) this fall, including a reception on September 19 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
