March 22 & 23: The C Major Prelude, with guest Lisa Yui
In March 2015 composer/pianist Jed Distler became Artist-in-Residence for The Classical Network, for whom he created the ASCAP Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys, which he's been producing and hosting from the start.
“As we begin our eighth year, we also celebrate J.S. Bach’s birthday,” says Jed. “So I thought we could do something special. I’m devoting this episode entirely comparative performances of Bach’s beloved C Major Prelude from The Well-Tempered Clavier Book One. We’ll hear a wide range of interpretations from pianists and harpsichordists."
"My friend, colleague and regular Between the Keys Lisa Yui will help me compare and discuss various recordings of the Prelude by Angela Hewitt, Rosalyn Tureck , Glenn Gould, Lang Lang, Edwin Fischer, James Rhodes, Wanda Landowska, Ralph Kirkpatrick, plus many more.”
Tune in to Between the Keys Tuesday March 22nd at 10 PM, with a rebroadcast Wednesday March 23rd at noon, exclusively on The Classical Network and WWFM.org.
