In the Depths of Winter…

Dramatic title, but in South Texas counting on the weather to be appropriate for your Piano show is a bit foolish. Temperature aside it is the cold season and the music on this Sunday's program is about wintery music. First the most thought of music when it comes to the seasons. Antonio Vivaldi struck it big with his Four Seasons and the combination of music and poetry inspired a number of other composers, even if was only to make their own arrangement of Vivaldi's music. To start off the program a modern transcription of this old chestnut for two pianos. Then music Arnold Bax wrote inspired by love and the sagas of Iceland; Winter Legends.

Here them both this Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC & KTXI, no matter what the temperature is.
