The Lost Chord: July 11 - Unalloyed Gold
July 13 marks the centenary of composer Ernest Gold. Best known for his classic scores to films like “On the Beach,” “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World,” and “Exodus” (for which he won an Academy Award), Gold wrote symphonies before he migrated to Hollywood. We’ll sample some of his concert music, including his String Quartet No. 1, from 1948, and his “Songs of Love and Parting,” from 1963, performed by his wife of 19 years, Marni Nixon. All that glitters is Gold, this Sunday at 10 pm.
