Sometimes musicians arrive at our studio with a lot of music prepared and we end up with more than we can fit in an hour. On this show, Bob Sherman presents some leftovers and previews from recent live performances.

From last week’s show, a piece performed by violist Jennifer Stumm; from a show this past November, a Dvorak movement by the Linden String Quartet; and from our pre-recorded St. Patrick’s Day show, the Irish mezzo Naomi O’Connell.

Also on the program are some new compositions by recent Russian and Ukrainian visitors Alexander Timofeev and Grigory Smirnov, respectively.

Program details:

Rolla: Viola and Piano Sonata # 1 in E-flat, second movement
-- Jennifer Stumm, viola; and Tanya Bannister, piano.*

Dvorak: "American" Quartet, 2nd movement
-- The Linden String Quartet.*

Schwartz: Make the Man Love Me from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Jonathan Dove: Adelaide's Aria from The Enchanted Pig

Thank you so much for the song from "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn." Our family saw the original show on Broadway when I was a pre-teen and I was so affected by the story and music. But somehow, I never read the original novel until two weeks ago!
I tried to find a DVD on Netflix, but it doesn't seem to exist as a film. Too bad.
Great show!
