The Lost Chord: July 17 - Best at Verse

apollo_playing_lute.jpg

During his time with the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation (1937-1944), Lars-Erik Larsson provided music for everything from cantatas to radio plays to brief vignettes to accompany the recitation of poetry. Material from these projects would frequently find its way into the composer’s concert works, including “Hours of the Day” (the source of his famous “Pastoral Suite”) and “God in Disguise.” Enjoy these poetic suites with bucolic settings, this Sunday at 10 pm.
