Appearing today on WFMT at 1:00pm CT

I am so happy to be appearing on WFMT today as a guest host alongside Kerry Frumkin. For those in the Chicago area, you can listen on 98.7FM and for everyone else, you can tune in online or even through your smartphone! WFMT has instructions here. If possible, I’ll see about posting an archived copy of the show once it is available.

    Any chance to post an archived copy?

      If they have something available I can use, I’ll certainly post it!

    Lynn, There is a question I have been longing to ask someone. It is about Rudolf Serkin’s playing of that section of the Andante of Brahm’s 2nd which comes after Robert Marcellus ends and before you begin the ending cello song of that movement. No one plays this piano section with such meditative beauty, such introspection as he does. I have heard many play the 2nd, but no one saw what Serkin brought forth in his playing. Here is my question: Was that his interpretation or did Szell have something to do with helping him see the music hidden in thos notes? Your answer would be very greatly appreciated. Thank you. Sincerely, Peter Ernest Haiman, Ph. D.

    Szell responded to his childhood friend with adamant soft playing from the strings and Rudi was further inspired by marcellus’s and johnson’s long sustained breath and ppp! I think for everyone it was a remarkable moment in our musical lives. Thanks for sharing!
