The Lost Chord: October 30 - Jacques o' Lanterns

Thrill to lurid selections by French composers, in advance of Halloween, including Maurice Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit (Gaspard of the Night), in a recording with Sir John Gielgud reciting weird and sinister poems by Aloysius Bertrand; fragments from Claude Debussy’s unfinished opera after Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher; and Charles-Valentin Alkan’s Scherzo Diaboloso from his Twelve Etudes in the Minor Keys, Op. 39. The bridge is out; you’ll have to spend the night, this Sunday at 10 pm.
