Embracing diversity on Between the Keys September 1st and 2nd
Episode No. 271 of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys finds The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler in a creative programming mood.
“The diversity of American music making has always inspired me, even as a kid,” Distler says. “To me, it makes perfect sense to juxtapose Aaron Copland, J.S. Bach, Mary Lou Williams, Frank Zappa, Hans Gal, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Charles Griffin, William Schuman, Judith Lang Zaimont, Chopin, Beethoven and even my own music. And that’s exactly what this week’s episode is all about. I won’t go into further detail, because I want you to tune in and be just as surprised as I was by the running order I managed to put together!”
Listen to Between the Keys on Tuesday September 1st at 10 P M, with a rebroadcast Wednesday September 2nd at 12 Noon, only here on The Classical Network and WWFM.org
