Just had a very nice driveway moment with Albinoni Addagio. Love that recording! Best one I’ve heard.

WorkerB

A driveway moment, yay! It’s nice to hear you enjoyed that version.

Hello! May I please have the playlist information for the solo piano piece played near the end of Drive-Time Elixir on yesterday, Monday Oct 30? It may have been the second-to-last selection. I recall the announcer saying that it was also a beautiful song with lyrics (that they were singing to themselves as it aired!) My guess it was Davis Gloff hosting. Thank you. And best of luck in getting the playlists back up — they are wonderful to have.

Hi Michael, the last three pieces we played were a suite from Miklos Rosza’s Spellbound, Lost in the Stars by Kurt Weill an Witches of Eastwick: Devil’s Dance by John Williams.

I just realized I was in banking with Christa’s dad, Hal, 40+ years ago. She would play at the branch during Christmas.

WorkerB

October 20, 202320:22:23

Oh really? How cool, we will mention that to her.

This was amazing!

Fantasy for Harp and Orchestra
Dubois, Theodore

Where DO you find this stuff?

WorkerB

August 24, 202322:49:02

Thanks Bill. We travel the Earth in search of great music! Well, ok maybe it’s not that dramatic.

Susan Wood

August 21, 202319:05:44

Could I get some information on the recording you just played (Mon. Aug. 21, about 2:40) of Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a theme by Paganini? Conductor, pianist, recording?

WorkerB

August 22, 202316:23:49

Hi Susan, yes that recording featured the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with Earl Wild on piano conducted by Jascha Horenstein. It’s from a Chandos disc called “Rachmaninov – The Complete Piano Works” spine number 7114.

William Sturm

Hi Dr. Dave, I have noticed and very much appreciate that you are playing more Baroque and Chamber music this summer. Please continue and keep up the excellent work!

WorkerB

Thank you for the note William and we appreciate you!

When do we find out which composers were voted the listeners’ favorites?

WorkerB

April 18, 202303:46:54

Hi Judy, we will reveal the top composers at the end of our Spring Fundraiser. Votes are still coming in!

Joseph K. Anderson

April 17, 202319:13:34

Hello, Im a sustaining member already but want to put my votes in for: Copland, Wagner, and John Williams. I know he may not be considered a “true” classical composer, but he’s still pretty darn good! thanks for all you do.

WorkerB

April 18, 202303:48:39

Thank you Joseph, we’ll add these to our tally!

Joy Burnett
