So, as I occasionally do, I was searching to see if there was any new YouTube material on a favorite "unsung" composer of mine, and lo and behold, I came across this treasure-trove of old radio programs. Most or all involve seem to David Dubal in some way, and regardless of what you think of him (I'm not a big fan, myself), he has managed to talk to a lot of interesting musicians. Anyway, the famous Horowitz and Arrau interviews that were turned into books seem to be here, along with a lot of other interviews and music programs.


There is an interview with Vincent Persichetti, whose name is what brought me to the channel, that is interesting. Persichetti tells a funny story about how he was pushed against his will into making a piano transcription of a Brahms organ prelude and fugue, which was played on a recital in New York and given a positive review in the NY Times, where it was described as a transcription by Brahms of a 16th century Italian composer named Persichetti. I wonder who the reviewer was.

I apologize in advance if this channel has already been mentioned here, and I missed it.

Wow.....hey, thanks for posting the link. I was an avid WNCN listener back in the day: Ironically, I started listening during their short hiatus as a rock station (1974, was it? I was a high school sophmore then) and kept tuned in as they switched back to classical format.....I have fond, but foggy, memories of most of these interviews. Thanks, again!
