Jonathan Swain with music by composers who were late bloomers, including Scriabin, Bruckner, Rameau and Franck. Plus Busoni's Carmen Fantasy and music from violinist Esther Yoo.
In addition to playing this week's Building A Library choice performance of Haydn's Symphony No. 99, Jonathan Swain explores composers who were late bloomers, and whose major works date from their later years. He plays music by Scriabin, Bruckner, Rameau and Franck. He also plays a piece that was once popular but is less frequently performed today, Busoni's "Carmen Fantasy". The week's young artist is violinist Esther Yoo, and there's French impressionist music from Hüe and Roussel.
