By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Music In Maryland | 1 Comment

Tis the season and tis Messiah season!  I love Handel’s Messiah and I love playing the Beecham version of Messiah every year on WBJC!  I see no reason why this tradition shouldn’t continue.  So sit back and enjoy the fabulous Beecham Messiah recorded in 1959.

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Music In Maryland | No Comments

This week we start with clarinetist Robert DiLutis and a nice performance of the much too under-heard Francaix Clarinet Concerto.  It was recorded at College Park with the U of M Orchestra and conductor Jose Luis Novo.  After that I wanted some stuff appropriate to the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.  […]

10-27-18 Music In Maryland Some BSO Pieces for Halloween!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Music In Maryland | No Comments
