When The Classical Network's Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler met his wife, the Italian New York-based artist Maria Scarpini, he had no idea that Italy would become a major part of his life.
"We go at least once a year, and I sometimes play concerts, " says Jed. "Usually we're based in Milan, and I feel so much at home with the city's growing arts scene and the sense of civility that seems to prevail. Milan also is home to my favorite pizza in the universe: S.P.I.B., at Via Legnone 34!".
So it was just a matter of time before Jed decided to devote an episode of Between the Keys to Italian composers. Tune in Tuesday October 30th at 10 PM for Episode No. 175 "All' Italia," and you'll hear works by Busoni, Ghedini, Scarlatti, Donizetti, Casella, Rota, Morricone and Castelnuevo-Tedesco, only here on the Classical Network and WWFM.org.
