Collectors' Corner with Henry Fogel
Sundays at 8:00 pm
After the huge success of The Callas Legacy and The Art of Wilhelm Fürtwangler, Henry Fogel returned eight years ago with Collectors' Corner.
Mr. Fogel had the following thoughts: "The series will present a wide range of recordings that I feel are true classics of the industry. Recordings to be included will feature either unusual repertoire that I feel deserves a wider public, or performances unique in their interpretive profile, sense of commitment, and intensity. Many of these recordings will be long out-of-print, or hard to locate in the United States."
