Charles Amirkhanian introduces a program of music that he originally produced in 1973, in Hilversum, Holland, during his exchange program with the Dutch radio station, VPRO. This radio concert features an orchestral overture by George Antheil, two works for strings by Darius Milhaud, a string quartet by Germaine Tailleferre, and a symphony by Willem Pijper. The last two pieces are little known in the United States and serve as a reminder that many composers’ works, no matter how good, seldom get played, let alone recorded and mass distributed outside their own countries.
