The Recording Connection

Sound wave hits the ear

 

A recording can do more than capture a performance.  It can introduce us to a long-forgotten work, or to qualities in a familiar work we didn’t know were there.  And in some cases, it can change our perceptions of the music, composer, or artist so profoundly that things are never quite the same again.

In this hour, seven landmark recordings that did just that -- from medieval songs to Bach, from Elgar to Gershwin.
