James Irsay returns to Between the Keys May 19th
This week on the ASCAP Deems Taylor Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys, the Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler welcomes back fellow radio host and pianist James Irsay, who presents a playlist of piano performances that one might consider to be “over the top.”
“James is the perfect guest,” says Distler. “He’s erudite without being the least but stuffy. He’s brilliant yet playful, and his provocative insights are supported by long experience as a performer and scholar. Certainly James’ imaginative radio programs on WBAI and WKCR influenced my own approach to the airwaves, and they still do.”
Tune in Tuesday May 19th at 10:00 PM to hear James Irsay and Jed Distler share and discuss piano performances by Natalia Janotha, Josef Hofmann, Sviatoslav Richter, Mark Hambourg, Raymond Lewenthal and Ignaz Friedman on Between the Keys, an exclusive production of The Classical Network and WWFM.org.
