It's a very special Sounds Choral this Sunday (5/28 at 2 pm) as host Marjorie Herman focuses on a work by conductor and composer Anthony Maglione and his magnificent setting of verses by Walt Whitman called The Mystic Trumpeter. Join Marjorie for this work and insightful conversation with the composer about how such a work comes to be.

This is a chance to hear a rarely performed opera that despite its premise, deserves more performances. Based on a short story by Roald Dahl, the music for the one act opera A Question of Taste is by William Schumann. The plot is about a bet concerning the hand of Scofield's daughter Louise and whether she will marry the aristocrat Pratt or her true love Tom, even if he's from "the wrong side of the tracks." It's set in the New York society of 1910. The premise is bizarre, but this is not the first opera where the music justifies a weak plot.
