Music for a While: Soft days and harder
featuring Jay Nordlinger
Jay discusses, and plays, an old song: “A Soft Day.” You also have a little music from Brazil. And a composer who escaped the Nazis. And some Cole Porter. Also, what about the question of Wagner? Can you listen to him, SOB that he was? Finally, Franco Zeffirelli died—which leads to a reflection on him, and to an aria. In short, there’s plenty to think about in this episode, and plenty to hear.
