It’s all my fault. I allowed this blog to slide for the past four months. But now I’ll put things right.
The big news is that The Classical Network WWFM.org invited me to be their first Artist-in-Residence, and the host of a new weekly keyboard show, Between the Keys. This is a lifelong dream come true; I’ve always wanted to host my own radio show! Furthermore, I’m honored to be associated with a network whose diverse array of hosts and wide ranging programs truly create a vivid and illuminating forum for the classical music world.
Many luminaries from the keyboard world will stop by and visit for a conversation, and maybe even an impromptu performance. We’ve had quite a few shows with special themes, such as a tribute to Terry Riley who just turned 80, the wild world of contemporary harpsichord works, my musical mentors, and a RIchard Wagner piano party. I look forward to hosting two fantastic Italian pianist friends and colleagues Emanuele Arciuli and Carlo Grante when they play in New York this fall, and a centenary salute to a pianist who remains totally unclassifiable – the legendary Cy Walter. He was not quite jazz, not quite cocktail, not quite classical, but quite, quite wonderful!
You can listen to Between the Keys each Tuesday night at 10 with a rebroadcast each Wednesday afternoon at 1 live by clicking on http://www.wwfm.org.
