Join host Joe Truskot has he presents an entire program devoted to challenging the listener. Tuesday, February 7 at 7 p.m. After being accused of playing only tonal music by an irate KUSP listener, Truskot goes on the defensive and puts on the air waves some of the most fascinating atonal music he has ever experienced. Listeners will hear works by Anton Webern, Alban Berg, Arnold Schoenberg, John Cage, Jacob Druckman, Edgar Varèse and many others. It’s an excursion into experimentation in the 20th century and barely scratches the surface. Expect more and more to challenge you. Performers include Glenn Gould, Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic, Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, Anne Sophie von Otter, Claudio Abbado and the Vienna Philharmonic, and many others. Tune in for music of the 20th century and today.
