What happens when your favorite classical music radio host tackles spring cleaning? We reap the benefits of his discoveries! Bill was digging deep into the back of his hall closet when he spied a mysterious box. He wondered, he reached, he opened, and he found a treasure trove of wonderful recordings from years past: Andras Schiff playing Beethoven Op. 111 and the Diabelli Variations, Martha Argerich playing Mozart Concerti with Claudio Abbado, and many, many more. And we’ll get to discover them all, right along with Bill. We’ve borrowed the title from one of our favorite albums of the Palladian Ensemble, playing consort music of the Elizabethan and Restoration periods.
