The Lost Chord: May 3 - Nippon Notes from Naxos
How much Western-style classical music composed in the East ever makes it to the West? Not much, unfortunately. Happily, some record companies venture where concert programmers won’t. Tune in to hear selections from Naxos’ “Japanese Classics Series,” including Kiyoshige Koyama’s variations on a woodcutter’s song, “Kobiki-Uta” (1957), Qunihico Hashimoto’s symphonic suite “Heavenly Maiden and Fisherman” (1933), and Komei Abe’s neoclassical Symphony No. 1 (1957). Armchair travelers, your passage is paid. Music brings us all closer. Expand your horizons, this Sunday at 10 pm.
