Name That Composer: A Tribute to Karl Haas
Wednesday, June 06, 2012
This week, Young Artists Showcase host Bob Sherman pays tribute to a fellow broadcaster with a musical game. Karl Haas hosted the longest running daily classical music program in broadcast history: Adventures in Good Music, which began in 1959 on WJR in Detroit. Occasionally, Haas withheld the name of a composer until after the music.
On this week’s Showcase, Sherman will give only clues to the identity of seven different composers, represented by some fairly unfamiliar pieces. See if you can name the mystery composers, whose pieces are performed by recent YAS visitors, as well as a bonus live track performance by the Oberlin Chamber Orchestra.
