Jay begins with a Schubert work, and some singers and pianists who have performed it. He moves on to a funky, frenetic thing called “Techno-Parade.” Later, there is some Wagner by a great new singer. There is some immortal Rachmaninoff. And, at the very end, a song by the late Jerry Herman: “It’s Today,” from Mame. A diverse, appetizing musical menu.

Tracks played:

Schubert, Winterreise, Schäfer and Schneider

Schubert, Winterreise, Hotter and Raucheisen

Schubert, Winterreise, Schreier and Eschenbach
