Listen to an hour of piano or organ music from the
pianonoise archives. All from the fingers of Michael
Hammer, webmaestro, concert pianist and organist.
The Current program: Fun and Frolic. An hour of
lighthearted (and lightheaded) music for the summer
months. Features music of Erik Satie: a set of pieces
about crustaceans, and twenty short pieces around
various games and activities, originally accompanied by
dirty illustrations. Also a few pieces from Prokofiev's
Music for Children, a set of variations by Mozart on a
children's tune, transcribed for organ by you-know-who,
a rag by Scott Joplin written to celebrate a water
garden at the world's fair, and Brahms brings it all to
a galloping conclusion.
