Mazurka Madness on Between the Keys April 9th

Apr 9, 2019

This week’s episode of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys features The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler and special guest co-host Nadia Shpachenko, exploring Chopin’s Mazurkas in comparative performances.

“More than any of Chopin’s works, the Mazurkas seem to lend themselves to a wide variety of valid interpretive styles and options,” says Distler. “As a consequence, hearing two pianists playing the same Mazurka is like experiencing night and day in the same city.”

DIstler is pleased to welcome former Between the Keys guest Nadia Shpachenko back to the program to co-host this hour of what he calls “Chopin Mazurka Madness.” Shpachenko’s third solo CD release, The Poetry of Places, is available now from Reference Recordings.

Tune in this Tuesday night April 9th at 10 for Between the Keys, a show that’s an exclusive production of The Classical Network and WWFM.Org, and proudly sponsored by Jacobs Music Company.
