The Lost Chord: July 5 - Balanced Czechs

czech_tightrope_beard.jpg

Neoclassicism in music was a reaction against the garish and gooey excesses of late Romanticism. Contemporary composers, in search of a new lucidity, turned their attention to the 18th century, filtering its lessons through a distinctly 20th century prism.  Stravinsky was the master, but neoclassicism swept the musical world.  Tune in for three cheery examples from Czechoslovakia, by Ilja Hurnik, Iša Krejči, and Bohuslav Martinu.  Czech it out, this Sunday at 10 pm.
