Episode 6: Haydn, Bach, Mozart, et al. - A Radio Cadenza Experience

Greetings! Your curiosity is about to be well met. Pete Mesling gives you something of a Cook's tour of classical music in this week's episode. And if Daniel Barenboim is correct that music quickens time, this week's installment of The Bare Knuckle positively has wings. The thread tying all of the selections together is virtuosity, so whether you're an avid listener of classical music or more of a neophyte, there's bound to be something that captures your attention here.

To give you some idea of what's in store for you, consider that you will hear works for the clarinet, harpsichord, piano, violin, cello, and voice. Composers covered are Haydn, Paganini, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Liszt, and Leroy Anderson. And if you want to talk personnel, how do the names Glenn Gould, Itzhak Perlman, Janos Starker, Gerard Schwarz, Leonard Slatkin, Maria Stader, and Daniel Barenboim grab you?

Such a show, and all you have to pay is attention. Now that's what I call a deal. Thanks for stopping by.
