Snooze Button #1518 10 Apr 2014

Since I couldn’t do a broadcast on Apr 9, today you are getting “Piano Wednesday” on a Thursday. The show starts with a Bach Prelude and Fugue (the latter of which is even more of a brain-twister than usual); next up is Chopin’s Polonaise-Fantaisie; the show continues with Jorge Bolet’s overwhelming performance of Liszt’s arrangement of the overture from Wagner’s “Tannhauser”; to conclude a favourite - even of people who hate Wagner: The Ride of the Valkyries in a virtuoso arrangement for piano. Guaranteed no singing!
