From October 30, 1989, the infamous "cooking show" with composer/raconteur Robert Moran. Recorded while cooking an Indian dinner in John Schaefer's kitchen, for reasons still not entirely clear. Along the way, we hear an "acoustic" version of Cage's 0:00 - for amplification of chopping vegetables and blender. And don't miss the teary conversation as onions are chopped. View the the recipes.

Robert Moran reminds us of the great Gioacchino Rossini of Barber of Seville, Semiramide, Guglielmo Tell, and La Cenerentola fame who just past midlife gave up composing and turned to culinary delights. Composing and the other arts as painting , sculpture and "chefmanship" can all link up in the same person. Caruso and Red Skelton (yes, Red Skelton composed orchestral music played at Carnegie Hall) and other performers were excellent as these two as graphic caricaturists. I am a Wagnerian heldentenor, composer of operas, "Shakespeare" and "The Political Shakespeare" and director of the Richard Wagner Music Drama Insitute, where I train actors for the Shakespeare roles and big-voiced singers for the Wagner roles.
