This Sunday (11/26) on Sounds Choral, Gabriel Crouch, director of choral activities at Princeton University, presents Joby Talbot's Path of Miracles. Tune in Sunday at 2 pm.

The Romance of the Rose is a medieval French poem styled as an allegorical dream vision. The work's stated purpose is to entertain as well as to teach others about the art of love. It's one of the great masterpieces of French literature and has influenced much  of European culture including Dante and Chaucer.  Much of the text was set to music and on Friday's Distant Mirror you can hear several of the resulting chansons as the ensemble Alla Francesca performs. Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.

Picture Perfect: November 24 - Kings Row

Nov 24, 2017

With a new “Star Wars” right around the corner, we’ll hear an extensive suite from one of John Williams’ acknowledged influences, Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s “Kings Row.”  The setting couldn’t be more different – “Kings Row’s” struggle of decency against sinister impulses takes place in a small Midwestern town – but Korngold's opulently orchestrated score brims with romance and heroism.  Check out that rousing opening fanfare, this Friday at 6 pm.

What do people look forward to most at Thanksgiving time?  We say it’s the leftovers, so we’ll look to some more Broadway turkeys because there are just so many of them.  This time, the cut-off is a dozen or fewer performances, and we’ve been able to find songs from a dozen of those shows.  Join us for some excellent songs from shows you didn’t even know you missed such as “Honkey Tonk Nights,” “Jerome Kern Goes to Hollywood,” “Christine,” “Dance a Little Closer,” “The Red Shoes,” “Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?”, and “Welcome to the Club” to name a few.  We hope you had a

Between the Keys November 21st/"Leftovers?"

Nov 21, 2017

The big question on the day after Thanksgiving: What do we do with the leftovers? Answer: Simply create another great meal! And that's what Jed Distler has been up to this week.

"When I put together an episode for Between the Keys each week," Jed says, "I often wind up with more music than I'm allowed within our time frame. So I decided to search past episodes for selections that got bumped, the 'leftovers,' if you will, and from them I've created a very nice program. They're not just leftovers, they're yummy additions to any excellent musical meal!"

This Sunday (11/19) on Half Past we'll hear music of two Canadian composers, R. Murray Schafer and Marjan Mozetich along with Six Encores by Luciano Berio.  Music from the past half century.
