Classical Music According To Yehuda #219

Gioachino Rossini

In this week’s Classical Music According to Yehuda, we continue to learn about Rossini - who died 150 years ago this year.

In this segment we learn about patter songs and comic opera, hearing John Reed perform “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General” from Gilbert & Sullivan’s "The Pirates of Penzance" - Isidore Godfrey conducts the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Yehuda Hanani’s Close Encounters with Music series presents a program Mozart & Schubert, Marzipan & The Trout on Saturday, December 8 at 6 p.m. at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington, MA.

Dr. Alan Chartock is professor emeritus at the University at Albany. He hosts the weekly Capitol Connection series, heard on public radio stations around New York. The program, for almost 12 years, highlighted interviews with Governor Mario Cuomo and now continues with conversations with state political leaders.
