Your Fauré program was excellent and beautiful, especially the rare piano solo and Sylvia McNair's Pie Jesu, a sublime performance by a superb musician too seldom seen or heard in my opinion. How about doing a program devoted to Ms. McNair? I finally heard her in concert last year at Concordia College. She seems to prefer the American Songbook now to classical music, but she is GREAT whatever she sings.
Another American treasure is the Bolcom/Morris team. IF you ever do feature performers in individual programs, I would love for you to feature them. I would be very grateful to be notified of performance dates if you should feature either S. McN. or Bolcom/Morris. I should hate to MISS either one. THANK YOU for your thoughtful, informative, entertaining programs.
