WQXR 50th Anniversary Show [Album # 24]
Sunday, June 08, 1986
Robert Sherman provides a somewhat revisionist view of musical history though the ages using the WQXR theme. Beginning with the cave men, to Gregorian Chant, to harmony through Organim, plain chant and organim, polifany, syncopation, renaissance influence, Elizabethan madrigals, romanticism, art song, opera, operetta, modernism, unexpected syncopations, piano blues and ragtime with some help from Arnold Black and William Balcom and some well-known performers. Blowing off steam in a marvelous way â€“Europe Unter Ster â€“ April Foolâ€™s special. Andâ€”another April treat provided by former Music Director Abram Chasins and Peter Ustinov.
