Piano Wednesday! Today’s show begins with a pair of Liszt’s “Transcendental Etudes”. Next up is William Hirtz’ “Wizard of Oz” Fantasy based on…do I really need to finish this sentence? The big piece for the hour is an unusually-structured “Sonatina” for keyboard and orchestra by C. P. E. Bach. This week’s water-themed encores continue with Liszt’s virtuosic arrangement of Schubert’s popular song “The Trout”.
