Afternoon Classics, Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Well, back in the saddle again and with a new set of wheels, so to speak, for propulsion! The program today will be as eclectic as any others, with music stretching from Schumann to Weill. Speaking of Robert Schumann he is 200 years old today, so wish him happy birthday! As for Kurt Weill, we will call on him and his cohort Bertolt Brecht to discuss the "Seven Deadly Sins." (this is a great source of moral consciousness.)
