This month’s Friday podcasts propose great pianists of the past and present as recitalists, performing the works of a single composer. The last podcast of this 5-Friday calendar month, we will be sharing our 200th music montage which – as we have done in the case of significant milestones – will exceed our self-imposed 90-minute limit.
As we have done all year, we plan to consolidate some of these and past music shares on a sonata hubbub.
