October 23 Birthdays

On October 23 we observe the birthdays of German composer Albert Lortzing, Russian composer Alexander Archangelsky, and American composer Ned Rorem. Herr Lortzing is best known as a composer of comic operas. Alexander Archangelsky led the revival of Russian choral music in the late 1800's. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Ned Rorem has composed hundreds of works in a variety of forms. He has written sacred choral music, several symphonies and dozens of songs.

Empty Pockets

Are you ready to play Break The Announcer with Andy Huber? Break The Announcer has been a tradition here at The Classical Station for many, many years. Andy and Music Director William Woltz will be on air from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. Eastern. Andy will match your gifts until he runs out of money. So, whether you give $5 or $500, Andy will match it until his checkbook runs dry or it's 10 p.m. and Andy goes home. Join in the fun! Call 800-556-5178 to play Break The Announcer with Andy Huber. You can also pledge online.

October 22 Birthdays

On October 22 we observe the birthday of Hungarian composer, pianist, and Franciscan tertiary Franz Liszt. Mere superlatives are not sufficient to describe Liszt's virtuoso piano and organ performances. By all accounts he was extraordinary. Friend of composers Saint-Saens, Chopin, and Debussy, Liszt himself composed over 750 works during his lifetime.
