Between the Keys marks its 250th episode on April 7th
For the ASCAP Deems Taylor Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys’ 250th episode, The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler offers excerpts from interviews with past guest pianists Angela Hewitt, Emanuel Ax and Marc-André Hamelin, along with previews of upcoming programs featuring Jeffrey Biegel, Alvin Curran and Norma Fisher. There also will be music, of course.
“In this difficult historic moment, I hope I'm being useful,” says Distler. “I’m sharing music that hopefully will stimulate the mind and lift the spirit, trying to inform and entertain at the same time. Plus I’ve been posting a daily link on my Facebook feed to webcasts of past Between the Keys episodes, for those who listen online. But this matters little when you think of all the health workers, food merchants and public officials who go to work each day and put their lives on the line for us. In moments like these I wish I was a doctor instead of a musician. On the other hand, music definitely has medicinal qualities.”
Tune in Tuesday April 7th at 10:00 PM to Between the Keys’ 250th episode. This program is an exclusive production of The Classical Network and WWFM.org.
Please continue to be safe, proactive, mindful and kind to one another. We will get through this crisis as a community.
