On Tuesday's edition of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys, The Classical Network's Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler showcases piano etudes that span from the early 19th century up until today.
"The etude genre fascinates me, not just because I have to practice them to keep my hands in shape, but also as a composer. I love to see how composers address specific challeneges of piano technique without constricting their creative urges," says Distler.
For this episode, Distler features a wide variety of music with works by Max Reger, Nikolai Kapustin, Sergei Bortkiewicz, Erwin Schulhoff, Fred Onovwerosuoke, Felix Mendelssohn, Kenneth Leighton, Jacques Charpentier and Robert Schumann.
Listen live at 10 PM, Tuesday September 4th, only here on The Classical Network and WWFM.org.
