Off the beaten path on Between the Keys, May 18th & 19th

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 guides listeners off the beaten path.

“Going off the beaten path means many things,” says Distler. “For example, you’ll hear a significant 18th-century composer whose name you’ve never encountered, yet her music looks daringly forward.  Then there's a well-known mathematician who wrote exquisite piano music in his spare time. How about a Liszt pupil known for his Beethoven playing, or an utterly original and truly iconoclastic Estonian composer whose piano sonatas are totally weird and wonderful? That's what I mean by going off the beatn path."

Fair enough. Yet who are all of these composers and pianists? “That’s for me to know, and you to find out when you listen to Between the Keys this Tuesday night at 10, or Wednesday at noon!,” says Distler. 

So take a journey off the beaten path, where the familiar and unfamiliar congenially merge, where old favorites and new discoveries intermingle, and where Jed Distler shares his piano passions each week on Between the Keys, an exclusive production of The Classical Network and
