Curved Air presents:
Legendary pianist, composer, and conductor Andre Previn passed away on February 28 at the age of 89. We begin tonight by listening to Previn conduct The London Symphony Orchestra in Benjamin Britten’s ‘Sinfonia da Requiem’. Rest in peace, maestro.
March 5th is the 132nd birthday of Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959). Described as “the single most significant creative figure in Brazilian art music”, he is also the most famous South American composer of all time. He is perhaps best known for his guitar compositions and for his nine pieces called Bachianas Brasileiras.
