One of our favorite pieces of Shakespeare related music is Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Serenade to Music” with text taken from the last act of “The Merchant of Venice”.
CORRECTION – the White Sox did NOT lose on wed – they beat the DET Tigers by hitting a granny in the 6th inning – I believe – the final score was 6-4 but not 100% on that one – either way they WON!. Loooove WFMT but please get your baseball fax better! Can you play Chopin Polonaise in A Flat today sometime?
Thanks and love love love WFMT!
Listening to Pogorelich-Abbado-London Symphony Orchestra, on Kerry’s show 4/24. I don’t care for Tchaikovsky’s First Concerto normally, and this seems like an extraordinarily selfish and grotesque recording. I’m surprised that the normally suave Claudio Abbado is involved in this recording. On the other hand, it’s good to hear the bad, so we can better appreciate the great pianists, like Rubinstein and Gilels.
