A cheery concerto by Vivaldi for 2 guitars (originally 2 mandolins) starts today’s show; next is the Scherzo from Schubert’s late, great String Quintet; Ravel’s hommage to Schubert - the “Valses Nobles et Sentimentales” is the main course. This week’s water-themed encores continue with Schubert’s song “To Be Sung On The Water”, first in its original version for voice and piano, then in Liszt’s transcription for solo piano.
