James Jolly

James Jolly plays music associated with the Orpheus story from Monteverdi to Philip Glass through Gluck, Liszt and Stravinsky.

Prompted by this week's Building a Library choice of Orpheus in the Underworld, (of which the programme will include act 1 of the selected recording), James Jolly explores the ways in which different composers have told the Orpheus story, from Monteverdi to Philip Glass by way of Gluck, Liszt and Stravinsky. Plus Americana from Henry Cowell and the week's "Best of British" choice by Charles Villiers Stanford.
