Someone asked Jay to name one composer whose music he would take with him to a desert island. He names him (Bach). He also says farewell to Marcello Giordani, the Italian tenor, and Jessye Norman, the American soprano. We also get an opera overture, a Beethoven overture, some Gershwin—and “Take This Job and Shove It.” Quite a menu, quite a program.
Bach, Prelude in C major, Book I, “The Well-Tempered Clavier”
Chopin, Etude in C major, Op. 10, No. 1
Gershwin, “I Loves You, Porgy” from “Porgy and Bess”
Beethoven, Triple Concerto
Coe, David Allan, “Take This Job and Shove It”
Betta, Marco, “Amuri mancatu”
Trad., “Give Me Jesus”
