Public Radio Classical Music Broadcasting, In Nation's Capital, Struck Down By Neoconservative Musical Meteorite

Listeners in Classical WETA-FM Lite's "Greater Washington" will not be hearing the following program, this week, on NPR's SymphonyCast, since the program contains humanistic works by two Classical WETA-FM Lite proscribed 20th century composers, Nikolai Yakovlevich Myaskovsky and Dmitri Shostakovich:


Week of July 8, 2007

Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
in Amsterdam

Nikolai Alexeev, conductor
Vadim Repin, violin [not piano]

Glazunov: Concert Waltz No. 1 in D
Myaskovsky: Violin Concert in d
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 6 in b

For a Map of the 128 provincial capitals of the United States where one can hear this and other outstanding, and curated, classical music programming (including works by American classical composers), click on this link.

The Greater Nation's Capital, on the linked Map, appears to have been hit earlier this year by a neo-conservative musical meterorite rendering it's public radio classical music broadcasting humanistically lifeless.

Master classical composers Myaskovsky and Shostakovich are unwanted -- by the lone Classical Music Director -- on public radio in the Nation's Capital.

The Nation's Capital has "come a long way, baby" since the days it welcomed Alexandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn and Mstislav Leopoldovich Rostropovich.
