“Listen for” on Radio 3: Joyce DiDonato and the Great American Songbook

Joyce DiDonato dips into the Great American Songbook to select some gems from the American repertoire. Her programme includes less well-known composers alongside the better-known numbers, with works by William Grant Still, Amy Beach, Ruth Crawford Seeger, Charles Griffes and Philip Glass rubbing shoulders with favourites by Jerome Kern, Duke Ellington, Harold Arlen, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin.

Listen next Thursday at 1pm, London Time, via BBC Radio 3

    Joyce,
    I got your tweet about the BBC 3 “Great American Songbook. WONDERFUL! You introduced me to Beach and Seeger, let’s hear it for women composers!
    Keep you day job that I get to enjoy often as I live in UWS close to the Met, but keep doing your radio hosting gigs. Lots to listen to with access through Spotify and the Performing Arts NYPL.
