March 27th/Between the Keys: Happy 3rd Anniversary!

In March 2015 The Classical Network's newly named first Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler launched Between the Keys, a program that explores the keyboard world's wealth of styles, genres, eras, works, composers and performers. The program won 2017's ASCAP Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Award for broadcasting excellence.

To celebrate Between the Keys' third anniversary,Distler invited listeners, friends and colleagues to program a special episode by submitting suggestions and requests to his Between the Facebook Page. The only restriction was that the works could not exceed ten minutes.  "I was delighted by the quick response," says Distler, "as well as the range of choices. I only wish we had time to include each request, yet I think this episode truly reflects the interests and terrific taste of our listeners. They clearly enjoyed being  'guest programmers' this week!."

Scheduled artists include Svaitoslav Richter, Leon Fleisher, Robert Helps, John Browning, Art Tatum, David Saperton, Arthur Loesser, and Guiomar Novaes, plus a cameo appearance by The Flinstones.
