Katie Puckrik

US broadcaster Katie Puckrik presents familiar music in unfamiliar settings, with choices including a jazz version of Bach and the Hallelujah Chorus performed by folk singers.

American broadcaster Katie Puckrik indulges in a little 'classical cross-pollination' as she presents familiar music in unfamiliar settings. Her choices include the first movement of Bach's concerto for two violins in D minor played by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, and the Hallelujah Chorus performed by the folk trio The Roches. There is music which contains American folk themes (Aaron Copland's Billy the Kid and the Hawthorne movement from Charles Ives' Piano Sonata No.2) and music played on the 'wrong' instruments (the first movement of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.3 performed on the Moog synthesizer and the Largo from the Winter movement of Vivaldi's the Four Seasons on a church organ).
