Afternoon Classics - Wednesday, March 18, 2009

Today's program is going to begin with Haydn and end up with Hindemith. It will cover pretty much from the Classical Period through the Romantic into the 20th Century. 
Haydn: Piano Sonata Nr. 60 in C, Hob. XVI:50, Mikhail Pletnev - piano.
Schumann:  String Quartet Nr. 3 in A, Op. 41, Nr. 3, Zehetmair Quartet.
   -- :     Symphony Nr. 1 in Bflat, Op. 38 "Spring" Christoph Eschenbach, Bamberger Symphoniker. (Well, anything to hurry Spring along!)
Liszt: Dante Sonata, Barry Douglas - piano. (Liszt seems to have not gotten beyond the Inferno!
Rachmaninov:  Piano Concerto Nr. 3 in Dminor, Op 30, Lang-Lang - piano, Yuri Temirkanov, St. Petersburg Philharmonic. (This is my favorite of the Rachmaninov concerti, the melody as introduced in the first movement seems to come from an Orthodox chant. It would seem to fit and gives everything that mystical quality.)
Liadov: Baba-Yaga, Enrique Batiz and the Orquesta Filarmonica de la Ciudad de Mexico.
Schoenberg:  Verklärte Nacht, Yoel Levi and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
Hindemith: Nobilissima Visione - Suite; Herbert Blomstedt, San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.
in the style of e e cummings:  enjoy the snow!
