The Lost Chord: November 14 - Pioneer Spirit
Most American composers born before 1900 were little more than footnotes in our music history books at the time conductor Karl Krueger established the Society for the Preservation of the American Musical Heritage in 1958. His pioneering records were distributed first to libraries, as opposed to commercial retailers. A number of them have been reissued over the years, by the Library of Congress and Bridge Records. Join Krueger in circling the wagons for neglected Americans Horatio Parker, Arthur Farwell, and Arthur Foote, this Sunday at 10 pm.
