GERM on Zoom: Jan 5, 2022

Happy New Year! Join us at this week's Golden Era Recorded Music Project in our neverending crossing of the frontier to the LAND of the GREATEST RECORDED MUSIC: ANALOG LPs from 1948 to 1988!


Tonight we finally let go of the holiday music with perhaps the greatest LP heard over the last 4 weeks: DUKE ELLINGTON & Orchestra playing BILLY STRAYHORN'S version of the NUTCRACKER by TCHAIKOVSKY. Listen and marvel!


We will play side 1 of the NUTCRACKER then hear the 2nd movement of the MAHLER FOURTH SYMPHONY on a pristine ANGEL (EMI) recording by OTTO KLEMPERER and orchestra in the great KINGSWAY HALL!


Then we will hear all SIDE 2 of the NUTCRACKER by ELLINGTON/STRAYHORN. Enjoy the familiar tunes in COMPLETELY NEW DRESS!


We send a Zoom link by email every Wednesday. If you'd like to be added to our mailing list, contact us here.
