Jay Nordlinger, music critic of The New Criterion, talks music—but, more important, plays music.
March 05, 2020
Jay ends this episode with the beloved theme song to The Jeffersons, “Movin’ on Up.” It was co-written and sung by Ja’net DuBois, who died recently. Also in this episode you have two arias by Handel; a piano piece by Ravel, miraculously played; some little-known Mozart, which is knockout; and yet more. Take a break away, as Jay says.
Handel, “Bel piacere,” from Agrippina
Galuppi, Andante from the Keyboard Sonata No. 5 in C major
Handel, “Pensieri, voi mi tormentate,” from Agrippina
Ravel, “Une barque sur l’océan,” from Miroirs
Mozart, Chaconne from the ballet music to Idomeneo
DuBois-Barry, “Movin’ on Up”
