Jay went to the ballet in Kyiv, for “Carmen Suite” and “Scheherazade.” He said, “It was the most erotic evening you could ever spend alone.” He plays some music from “Carmen Suite” in this episode, plus Bach, Scriabin, and Glass. And Frank Bridge, that half remembered and estimable English composer. There is much beauty, and much of interest, in this episode.

Tracks played:

Bach, Toccata in F-sharp minor

Bizet-Shchedrin, Carmen Suite

Scriabin, Piano Concerto

Scriabin, Etude in D-sharp minor, Op. 8, No. 12

Glass, Funeral Music of Amenhotep III from “Akhnaten”

Bridge, “Love Went A-Riding
