fantastic Virgil Thomson podcast

Yale has launched an ambitious series of netcasts to share its wealth of historical recordings with the public. The school is among a handful of pioneers in the field of university podcasting, offering not only lectures, but also live music performances of historical and contemporary significance.

Vivian Perlis and Libby van Cleve of the Oral History of American Music (OHAM) Project at Yale have compiled a 20-minute program of musical excerpts from OHAM’s archives and interviews.  Particularly interesting is the podcast of Virgil Thomson, featured on Friday’s Exploring Music program.

Go to Apple’s iTunesU site or the School of Music Netcasts.
