CBC Radio 2 - This is my Music

Sitting in "Sweet Indulgence" Café in Lunenburg with Sandra on a foggy afternoon. We wanted to let you know that tomorrow morning, Saturday, April 10th at 10 AM, on CBC Radio 2, you can hear "This is my music" where I'll be talking about my favorite recordings and also about the Elizabeth Bishop Centenary. The show was recorded a week ago in Toronto, in the very hi-tech studio normally used for "Hockey night in Canada"! Springtime is the central theme, starting with David Greenberg's violin from the CD "Spring any day now". From there, an excursion to the sea with Debussy's La Mer (conducted by Yannick Nezet-Seguin) and Faure's "Melisande's song", sung by Lorainne Hunt-Lieberson. You'll later hear Lorainne and Brazilian Jazz singer Luciana Souza sing settings of Elizabeth Bishop's poems "Breakfast song" and "Sonnet". For the gypsy lovers, David Greenberg returns with the Ensemble Caprice (Montreal) in a frenzied Baroque Gypsy dance. The rest of the music is a collection of eclectic pieces which reflect the many collaborations I have enjoyed in the past 20 years. Hope you enjoy them too.
