New Stuff: violinist Julia Fischer plays Sarasate (from our CD of the Week), Jon Nakamatsu plays Schumann and Nicholas Angelich plays Brahms, plus Tafelmusik tackles Beethoven and the big bad Blomstedt box from the San Francisco Symphony.
Speaking of Conductor Laureate Herbert Blomstedt, he leads the San Francisco Symphony in a broadcast of Schubert’s “Great” 9th Symphony and Nielsen’s very personal Clarinet Concerto, with the Symphony’s principal Carey Bell. Tour the gallery at 10 with Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition.”
Fantasyland: Fantasies, Phantasies and Fantasias from Rodrigo, Chopin, Bruch, Schumann and more.
“T” is for…….Tchaikovsky, of course, but also Trio, Turkey, Toccata, Till Eulenspiegel and Michael Tilson Thomas!
Big and Little: From one end of the spectrum to the other with big little works by Schubert, Tchaikovsky and Mozart, and little big pieces by Bach, Chopin, and Liszt.
