"Well-Tempered" Pianists on Between the Keys, January 19th and 20th
For Episode 291 of the ASCAP Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys, The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler features a wide variety of pianists in selections from Books One and Two of J.S. Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier.
“The 48 Preludes and Fugues not only are the foundation of piano music,” says Distler, “they also embody the full gamut of emotions, and always convey a sense of order, which is something we so desperately need in these challenging days.”
The pianists will include Ramin Bahrami, Maurice Cole, Bernard Roberts , Yvonne Lefebure, Piotr Anderszewski, Alexandra Papastefanou, Pietro Scarpini, Wilhelm Backhaus, Edna Stern, David Korevaar and Maria Yudina
Tune in this Tuesday January 19th at 10 PM for Between the Keys, with a rebroadcast Wednesday January 20th at noon, exclusively on The Classical Network and WWFM.org.
