Classical Pacific, Monday, February 26, 2018: Off the Desk
Off the Desk is just another way of saying More New Arrivals. As you can see from the pile on the desk in the library, we receive lots of new CDs - some are new releases and others are sent in the hopes that we will play them because they have merit. I like to sort through them and find gems. Today you'll be hearing works from these albums: Viola Music of the Bach Family; Evgeny Kissen • Beethoven; Smetana, Debussy, Delius; Set No Limits - Music by Women Composers for Clarinet and Piano; Quartets Featuring the Jack Quartet; Horowitz the Poet; United States - the Ying Quartet; Dialogues en Français; Brahms • Norman Krieger; Soweto String Quartet; and Schumann Liederkreis. And I'm choosing only one piece from each. I barely made a dent in the pile. Join me!
