Musical Reponses on Between the Keys, July 6th and 7th
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 features piano works written in response to earlier composers.
We’ll hear composer Mark Carlson responding to Beethoven, works by Dalit Warshaw and Jonathan Cziner in response to Brahms, Schulhoff’s tribute to Zez Confrey’s “Kitten on the Keys,” and Franz Reizenstein’s variations on the English music-hall ditty “The Lambeth Walk,” where he imitates Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Chopin, Verdi, Tchaikovsky and others.
Featured pianists include Inna Faliks, Steven Masi, Philip Martin, Dick Hyman, Hélène Grimaud, and Jed Distler himself.
Tune into Between the Keys this Tuesday night July 6th at 10, rebroadcast on Wednesday July 7th at noon, exclusively on The Classical Network and WWFM.org
