Music for a While #17: Yesterday, today, and tomorrow

featuring Jay Nordlinger

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

Connesson, “Techno-Parade

The Lark in the Clear Air” (arr. Michael McHale)

Wagner, “Dich, teure Halle,” from Tannhäuser

Rachmaninoff, “Let Now Thy Servant Depart in Peace,” from Vespers

Herman, “It’s Today,” from Mame
