The Louisville Orchestra
Robert Whitney, conductor
I don't know why I thought of this piece this morning, maybe the election had something to do with it. Though I'm not especially enthusiastic about neo-classicism, I do like Shapero's music. I'm not sure if he's related to the Shaperos my great aunt Julia was a cook for and there's no one around who would know that. They lived in the same town as them. I think it's how caraway seeds might have gotten into the soda bread tradition of my family.
