Midge Woolsey has wonderful taste in music-adding great beauty to my day. Lowering my sress too! Thank you!!
So true! As much as I enjoy hearing the Emperor Concerto, I wonder why music that is so often heard in the regular programming day still gets played on the Request Hour, while I am sure that there are other works being requested are not played.
Not that we begrudge Beethoven the limelight, but I seem to remember that we heard the Concerto No. 5 a few times during November (remember "Beethoven Awareness Month"?) I'm sure that there was other music that has been requested that is not being played as often. How about the Bach "Magnificat", for example: perfect for Advent! (and rarely heard on this station)
My favorite version of the William Tell Overture is still the Spike Jones one. I think Rossini would have laughed at it as well. The finale of this opera is gorgeous. Wish this station would play it.
