This week, The Music Treasury is focusing on the performances by conductor Willem van Otterloo. Talented in many areas, Otterloo opted to study music, where he excelled in both cello performance as well as composition.
Though his activity as a conductor was launched in the Netherlands, his career ultimately landed in Australia, where he conceited the Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras, after wending through concert halls in Berlin and Vienna. In particular, he was noted for his performances of 19th and 20th century music.
This show can be heard broadcast from its host station at Stanford University, kzsulive.stanford.edu, as well as simultaneously being available on the ‘Net. Hosted by Gary Lemco, the show runs from 19:00 to 21:00 PDT Sunday evening, 25 March 2018.
The music will include works by Beethoven, Franck, Grieg, Brahms, and Weber.
