Gemini Jewels #0322
From an historic monastery in Austria to Princeton University chapel, this week’s show features the work of three composers who happen to be born under the sign of The Twins [as in astrology, not baseball]. We’ll hear a Sonata for Organ and Strings by Daniel Pinkham, Gospel Preludes and a Princeton premiere by William Bolcom, and tantalizing toccatas from the 17th century by Georg Muffat. Join in as we celebrate their 80th, 65th and 250th late spring birthdays with a chest full of Gemini Jewels.
Each of these illustrious composers. Muffat born June 1, 1653, Pinkham born June 5, 1923, and Bolcom born June 26, 1938, has contributed importantly to the repertoire of the King of Instruments.
