In 1960, President Eisenhower famously remarked to Leonard Bernstein, "You know, I liked that last piece you played; it's got a theme. I like music with a theme, not all them arias and barcarolles."
Taking a cue from that remark, this week is a sampling of arias, overtures, barcarolles and other melodic delights that deserve more time on the airwaves.
