Bobby McFerrin's worldess serenade to Mozart on WQXR: All Ears

Bookmark and Share

The term "wordy" most often has a negative connotation. It's true that sometimes words do get in the way. But in music, it's not an all-or-nothing proposition.

This week on All Ears, host Terrance McKnight blends the spoken with the unspoken and the old with the not so old, and features a wordless serenade to Mozart by Bobby McFerrin.

The show will also play choral music by David Lang, music by 17th-century keyboard composer Louis Couperin, and mallet music by Steve Reich.

Tune in to WQXR: New York - All Ears with Terrance McKnight tomorrow night April 12th at 10pm.
