The Lost Chord: January 12 - Czech in the Balance
Despite having composed over 100 works, Jaromir Weinberger remains a one-hit wonder. In 1927, his opera, “Schwanda the Bagpiper” became an international sensation. But beyond a couple of orchestral highlights – the polka and fugue – even that “one hit” isn’t terribly well known. Learn more about this rollicking farce, involving a love triangle, a card game with the devil, and the beguiling power of the bagpipes. There’s still plenty of bounce in this Czech, this Sunday at 10 pm.
