A Musical Feast for Passover
with Itzhak Perlman
The springtime Jewish holiday of Passover is about liberation from slavery in ancient Egypt. In this one-hour special, superstar violinist Itzhak Perlman shares Passover music from many traditions, plus songs and memories from his childhood in Israel. The program draws its shape from the Passover seder and, like that ancient family ritual, the music gets progressively giddier as the show moves along.
 9 PM
Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
The Symphony, Part IX - In this next chapter in our survey of the symphony, we will turn to Germany, Austria, and France during the turbulent years after the Great War. Bill will introduce us to symphonies by Hans Pfitzner, Albert Roussel, Franz Schmidt, and we will also hear a wonderful performance of Kurt Weill and Ira Gershwin's My Ship, sung by Dawn Upshaw.
