Schumann and Villa-Lobos on "Music from Marlboro"

This week’s “Music from Marlboro” serves up a Robert Schumann sandwich on Brazilian bread.  The hour will open with “Five Songs for Voice and Bassoon” by Francisco Mignone, and conclude with the String Quartet No. 6 by Heitor Villa-Lobos.  In between will be the “Andante and Variations” by Schumann, scored for the rather peculiar combination of two pianos, two cellos and horn.

The husband and wife team of Claude Frank and Lilian Kallir perform.  Join Ross Amico for more selections from the Marlboro Music archive, this Wednesday at 6 pm.
