The Lost Chord: November 7 - Go West, Young Man

leonard_pennario.jpg

At the age of 10, Buffalo-born Leonard Pennario moved with his family to Los Angeles.  L.A. would remain his base of operations for the rest of his career.  He made his first recordings for Capitol Records in 1950 (over 40 albums were pressed).  By 1959, he was the best-selling American pianist.  Highlights from his Capitol catalogue were remastered for a 4-CD set on the MSR label.  Tune in to enjoy his superlative interpretations of Prokofiev’s “Visions fugitives,” Miklós Rózsa’s Piano Sonata, and Ravel’s “La valse,” this Sunday at 10 pm.
