“Care to romp around in some Romantic piano music?” asks Jay. “Virtuosic Romantic piano music? High-quality salon stuff? Well, that’s what we’re going to do.” Jay gives us a program of the talented, witty, dashing Moritz Moszkowski (1854–1925). The final piece is maybe Moszkowski’s best loved: “Étincelles,” or “Sparks.”

    @jaynordlinger, I owe you an apology.  When I saw the title of this podcast, I really thought it was about the rock group Sparks.

    I should have known better . . .
