10-5-19 Music in Maryland…Scriabin, Elgar and William Grant Still.

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

This week we have a nice potpourri of new and old.  Andrew Constantine, who lives in Baltimore, has a new recording out of Elgar’s Falstaff with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.  We also sample a venerable recording of William Grant Still’s ballet Sahdji featuring the Morgan State College Choir.  Since the BSO is playing the Scriabin Piano Concerto tonight, why not play a fine recording of the work and also air an interview I did with pianist Conrad Tao.  Here are the listings….Hope you enjoy the show.
