Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Before the tempest of tonight's Presidential Debate, we bring some peace and quiet your way with Samuel Adler's laconic song cycle for soprano, "Domestic Tranquility." Setting poetry by women from three different countries (Britain, Ireland, and the U.S.), the cycle examines how each woman views her home from a different perspective.

Tonight's Evening Music will be pre-empted beginning at 8PM for special election coverage. The Writer's Almanac will not be heard tonight.

other music featured tonight includes:

Radiohead / no surprises
David Smith / Soul Eyes
Eric Ewazen / A Hymn for the Lost and the Living
Gregorio Allegri / Miserere
Gerhard Krapf / Wit And Wisdom
News, weather, Radiolab, Brian Lehrer and more.
