This Tuesday, May 1st at 10:00 PM, the 2017 ASCAP Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Award Winning program Between the Keys airs its 150th episode.
"I thought we'd mark the occasion with a show all about waltzes," says the Classical Network's Artist-in-Residence and Between the Keys producer and host Jed Distler. "We had a waltz show in 2015, and again in 2016, but somehow I forgot to do one last year. So I'm making up for lost time. In any event, I've put together a lineup of works and pianists that's got something for everyone."
Composers scheduled include Liszt, Chopin, Philip Glass, Johann Strauss, Jr. and more. Other highlights include a waltz by future guest Tom Constanten, some rarely heard waltzes by Milan Kimlicka, Art Tatum playing Noël Coward and Richard Rodney Bennett playing Stephen Sondheim.
