The Lost Chord: June 12 - Repeating Episodes

Tansman with score.png

A performance of his Symphony No. 3 sold over a million copies, making it one of the best-selling classical records of all time. Henryk Górecki’s Symphony No. 4, completed in short score 30 years later, was to be the composer’s last major work. Subtitled Tansman Episodes, the piece was written in tribute to his compatriot, Alexandre Tansman (pictured). Tansman’s Partita for Cello and Piano, dedicated to the famed Spanish cellist Gaspar Cassadó, will also be featured. For Tansman’s 125th birthday, it’s an episode that bears repeating, this Sunday at 10 pm.
