Between the Keys April 24/Seriously Scherzo! Part 2

This week on Between the Keys, The Classical Network's Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler concludes a two part survey of the musical Scherzo. While a scherzo is defined as "a vigorous, light or playful composition, typically comprising a movement in a symphony or sonata," the genre, in fact, embraces a wide range of moods.

This second of two episodes titled "Serious Scherzo!" features music by Gottschalk, Alkan, Busoni, Saint-Saëns, Ives, Hailstork, Chabrier and Liszt. Performers include Jack Gibbons, Ivan Davis, Wolf Harden, Akane  Sakai and Lilya Zilberstein, Arthur Rubinstein and Vladimir Horowitz

Tune in to Between the Keys, Tuesday April 24th at 10:00 PM.
