Collector's Corner with Henry Fogel

Thursdays at 7 p.m.
  • Hosted by Henry Fogel

After the huge success of The Callas Legacy and The Art of Wilhelm Furtwangler, Henry Fogel returned with Collectors Corner.  Mr. Fogel had the following thoughts: The series will present a wide range of recordings that I feel are true classics of the industry.  Recordings to be included will feature either unusual repertoire that I feel deserves a wider public, or performances unique in their interpretive profile, sense of commitment, and intensity.  Many of these recordings will be long out-of-print, or hard to locate in the United States.
