It is characteristic of this podcast to contain a variety of music. But this episode is exceptionally diverse, with music by George Walker, Lili Boulanger, and Florence Price, to go with music by Mozart, Shostakovich, and Hindemith. Jay lays it out for you. Interesting and rewarding musical terrain.
Walker, “Lyric for Strings”
Shostakovich, Concerto No. 1 in C minor for Piano, Trumpet, and Strings, last movement
Boulanger, Lili, “D’un vieux jardin,” from “Trois Morceaux”
Price, “Ethiopia’s Shadow in America”
Hindemith, “Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber,” March
