Music from Remington

Special time: 10 am Saturday

One of the more striking LP labels of the early 1950s was Remington, the creation of Don Gabor, whose name graced every record cover. Designed to be sold at much lower prices than major labels, Remington Records had in its catalog such major artists as Georges Enesco, Albert Spalding, and Simon Barere. You can hear their music during Saturday's show!

Jascha Heifetz

Jascha Heifetz was widely regarded in the 1930s as the world’s greatest violinist. He made many concerto recordings in that decade, of works by Mozart, Brahms and Sibelius. Some critics think that these recordings caught him at his best, not the ones he made after WWII. On Saturday at 11, John Frayne will sample some of these 1930s recordings.
