They’re recorded live, and they’re broadcast live (usually). The Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts are a fixture on WFMT, Wednesdays at 12:15 PM—except during our membership campaigns; it’s a tough sell to ask volunteers to sit around while the station cuts away for a forty-five minute concert. On the other hand, it’s fun to get a sneak peak at the show. The audience at the Cultural Center was wildly enthusiastic about Wednesday’s concert with the Horszowski Trio (named for the late teacher of Trio pianist Rieko Aizawa). There was a definite sense of discovery with this New York-based group.
Carl Grapentine was impressed: “Excellent! Not flashy repertoire–a Haydn Piano Trio and a Faure Piano Trio. But they were just wonderful.”
Hear the Horszowski Trio Thursday at 10:00 PM. Podcast coming soon.
