The Lost Chord: October 29 - Jacques o' Lanterns

Thrill to some lurid selections by French composers, in advance of Halloween, including Maurice Ravel’s “Gaspard de la Nuit” (Gaspard of the Night), in a recording with Sir John Gielgud reciting weird and sinister poems by Aloysius Bertrand; fragments from Claude Debussy’s unfinished opera after Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher;” and Charles-Valentin Alkan’s “Scherzo Diaboloso” from his “Twelve Etudes in the Minor Keys,” Op. 39.  The bridge is out; you’ll have to spend the night, this Sunday at 10 pm.
