Afternoon Classics - Thursday, March 18, 2010

Once again it is a problem of so much music and so little time, and to think I used to think a two hour program was large! One of my problem's is that if I put the excess from today away for the next time, what I really end up doing is creating a higher stack of music to play "sometime." Putting all that aside here is the playlist for today:

Suite in G "L'Inconnue" (2nd Book) of Michel de La Barre played by Robert Stallman - flute, Edwin Swanborn - harpsichord, Karl Bennion - cello. This piece was some of the first compositions for transverse flute to be published.
Piano Sonata in F minor, Op. 11, No. 2 by Ferdinand Ries played by Susan Kagan - piano.
Sonatina in A minor, Op. 45 by Ferdinand Ries. Susan Kagan at the piano
Piano Trio in E minor, Op. 102 by Max Reger performed by Sandor Karoli - violin; Uwe Zipperling - cello; Werner Hoppstock - piano. Max is one of those composers that live in the shadow of others more prominent.
Symphony No. 1 (1940) by John Alden Carpenter, John McLaughlin Williams with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine
Baba Yaga, Op. 56 by Anatol Liadov; Enrique Bátiz and the Mexico City Philharmonic Orchestra
Piano Concerto in F minor, Op. 114 of Max Reger performed by Steven Mayer - piano; Ernest Bour conducting The Hague Philharmonic
Symphony No 1, (1942) of Bohuslav Martinu, Arthur Fagen and the National Symphony of Ukraine.
Verklärte Nacht, Op. 4 by Arnold Schoenberg; Yoel Levi conducting the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
Summer Music for Wind Quintet by Samuel Barber, performed by Jeanne Baxtresser - flute; Joseph Robinson - oboe; Stanley Drucker - clarinet; Judith Le Clair - bassoon; Philip Meyers - French horn.

And that does it for this week. Have a wonderful weekend and I will be with you again on next Tuesday!
