Pianoforte della sera (radio show)

The latest Musica della sera show is now up on the Internet to listen to on demand; see below for locating the link.

This show was dedicated to the solo piano works of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Chopin, and Rachmaninoff.

And what is piano music without pianists? You'll hear Glenn Gould, John O'Conor, Alfred Brendel, Albert Ferber, Andras Schiff, Evgeny Kissin, and even scratchy recordings of Sergei Rachmaninoff himself, and his famous HOUS! (Hands of Unusual Size).

You can see exactly what was played and who performed it by referring to the playlist (originally broadcast 2/5/2009).

My wife, Meera Collier-Mitchell, and I take turns hosting the classical radio program Musica della sera on Thursday evenings, 7-9:30 (PT). This week I hosted.

KUSP Radio is now offering On Demand downloads of its music programs. Peruse the calendar listing, with audio links, of The Shows Available. Click the one for Musica della sera Thursday night to hear our show.

Each broadcast is available for download until it is replaced by the subsequent week's program.

You can also stream KUSP live of course.
