This episode begins with a poem, first published in The New Criterion, in 2002: Charles Tomlinson’s “If Bach had been a beekeeper.” It speaks of “the honey of C major.” We then duly hear some Bach in C major. We also hear a famous aria—an aria made famous by a movie. And “Estrellita,” in two different versions: the original song, plus what Heifetz did to it, or rather, for it. The podcast includes other appetizing items as well. A fine smorgasbord. Bach, Prelude and Fugue in C major, “The Well-Tempered Clavier,” Book 2 Catalani, “Ebben? Ne andrò lontana,” from “La Wally” Ponce-Heifetz, “Estrellita” Coleridge-Taylor, “You Lay So Still in Sunshine” Milhaud, “Love, My Heart” Shostakovich, Piano Concerto No. 2, first movement Ponce, “Estrellita”
