Of Note for Thr. Mar. 31, 2016: Dark & Light in Chopin's Scherzi

The Italian translation for Scherzo is joke, hence the whimsy and irony often found in the classical music form for so many. Chopin's four Scherzi were composed in a period of much turmoil including his final years suffering from the mysterious disease that led to his death. Pianist Lang Lang deftly interprets them on his newest release. Hear the dark and light unfold in Thursday's program coming up at 11 a.m. here on KUAF.
