Collectors' Corner with Henry Fogel

Hosted by Henry Fogel, Collectors' Corner is a weekly two-hour series.

After the huge success of The Callas Legacy and The Art of Wilhelm Furtwängler, Henry Fogel returned 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."

The series includes a broad range of orchestral, vocal, chamber and solo-instrumental music.

On Collectors' Corner this quarter, highlights include the music of Maurice Emmanuel, two programs on the music of Franz Xaver Scarwenka, The art of Mario Lanza, a Russian Werther, Piano music of Wilhelm Stenhammar, Music of Mieczyslaw Weinberg, the art of soprano Astrid Varnay, music of Hans Rott, 2 programs of music with Nicolas Flagello, rare Frederick Stock/CSO recordings and an all-Puccini concert from 1954 in honor of the 30th anniversary of his death.

Stations are allowed two (2) broadcasts of this series within the broadcast window, as specified in the listings.
