Also heard is a rare recording made in 1949, just after KPFA went on the air, in which Henry Cowell performed a number of his works on the KPFA grand piano. This program continues with Berkeley composer Gary Noland’s spectacular ragtime composition, “Grand Rag Brillante”, which is virtually impossible to be played by humans.
