Snooze Button #1452 18 Dec 2013
Piano Wednesday! Today’s edition of Snooze Button is the “Cold War” edition with music mostly by Russian and American composers. To start Robert Schumann’s Traumerei - one of the most beloved of all piano miniatures. The show continues with two more “salon” pieces by Anton Rubinstein and Louis Moreau Gottschalk. Then fasten your seat belt for an amazing performance of Gershwin’s “Cuban Overture”. To conclude, Mikhael Pletnev’s colourful and virtuosic arrangement of music from “The Nucracker” played by young Maceonian pianist Simon Trpceski.
