Mad About Music

Saturday at 2 pm
Gilbert Kaplan

Created and hosted by Gilbert Kaplan, Mad About Music’s format is part interview, part musical performance. Internationally famous guests select five key musical works and discuss why those pieces are important to them. The interviews are always personal–and often humorous—as some of the world’s most famous people reveal aspects of their personalities largely unknown to the public.

  • Dec 27:  Former President of the World Bank , James Wolfensohn, on being a groupie of Leonard Bernstein.  
  • Jan 3:   President of the Jilliard School, Joseph Polisi on his fascination for Mahler

  • Jan 24:  Hollywood Director Joel Schumacher on learning to love opera (Join program in progress)
