Celebrating Geza Anda, with guest Mark Ainley on Between the Keys, January 18th & 19th
Episode 343 of the ASCAP Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys celebrates the recent centenary of legendary Hungarian pianist Geza Anda (1921-1976), with special guest Mark Ainley.
The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler invited Mr. Ainley back to Between the Keys to curate this episode. “Mark is one of the world’s leading experts of great pianists and their recordings,” says Distler. “He has put together a program for us that brilliantly showcases Geza Anda’s remarkable technique and refined musicianship in a broad range of repertoire that will surely attract anyone who cares about great piano playing.”
Tune in to for Between the Keys this Tuesday January 11th at 10 PM, with a rebroadcast Wednesday January 12th at noon to hear Geza Anda in works by Chopin, Mozart, Schumann, Brahms, Bartok and Delibes/Dohnanyi, exclusively on The Classical Network and WWFM.org.
