Gergely Vajda's opera Barbie Blue was written to celebrate one of Hungary's best-loved composers, Bela Bartok. We'll hear an extract from this opera in this hour; we'll also have a quintet by Ernst von Dohnanyi and the Marossek Dances by Zoltan Kodaly.
Can you manage a mambo? Or perhaps a waltz? The Arts Underground with Beth Norwood takes your mind places it didn't know it wanted to go.
This two-hour, free-form program seeks to delight the senses. You'll hear interviews with artists, and music from across time and space...and maybe you'll find a few hidden musical treasures.
The Arts Underground airs Saturday from 1-3pm ... or listen to a podcast below.
