“Going Mazurk” on Between the Keys November 17th and 18th

On this week’s episode of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys, The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler “goes mazurk.” As in “mazurkas.”

“As longtime listeners know, I am obsessed by the Chopin Mazurkas,” says Distler. “And perhaps even more obsessed with the wide range of Mazurka playing on record, and with comparing different pianists in the same works.”

Distler recently compiled a list where he selected two performances for each of the 51 standard Chopin Mazurkas , and without repeating a pianist, totaling 102  performers in all.  He will share excerpts from this list on this week’s program.

“I won’t tell you all of the performers, because I want to surprise you, and I want you to tune in, “says Distler.  “But I guarantee that you’ll be entertained, illuminated and surprised at every turn!”

So tune in and “go mazurk” with Jed Distler on Between the Keys, Tuesday November 17th at 10:00 PM, with a rebroadcast Wednesday November 18th at noon, only here on The Classical Network and
