As Christmas Day winds down, The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler directs listeners to the piano, with seasonal fare by Dave Brubeck, Bruce Adolphe, Franz Liszt, Claude Debussy, Leroy Anderson and J.S. Bach. The featured work this hour is Godfrey Windham’s large-scale Variations on a Theme by James Pierpoint, performed by Alan Feinberg. Its theme, by the way, is none other than Jingle Bells, James Pierpont’s "greatest hit." And for an encore, Meral Guneyman's lovely arrangement of Mel Tormé's classic Christmas Song tops off a program you won't want to miss.
Tune in on Tuesday December 25th at 10 PM for a special Christmas edition of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys, hosted by Jed Distler, only here on the Classical Network and WWFM.org.
