For Wednesday, March 7, from 9:00-11:30pm CST on KKFI, 90.1 FM or streaming at www.kkfi.org, The Classical Challenge presents A Piano Recital.
I like the piano repertoire, and every now and again I revisit some of it, especially when I’ve added enough good recordings recently to the collection. We’ll hear:
