Listen to iconic masterpieces with new ears as NPR & PBS music commentator, conductor, composer, author and pianist Rob Kapilow shows you what you’ve been missing!

Featuring Broadway Stars Sally Wilfert & Michael Winther
In a field where composers routinely collaborated with many different lyricists over the course of their careers, Richard Rodgers wrote more than 40 shows over 42 years with only two partners: Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II. Kapilow explores both of these wildly successful partnerships with songs from Babes in Arms (1937) and Carousel (1945), including “If I Loved You” and “My Funny Valentine.”

Followed by a post-concert reception and book signing with Rob, whose new book Listening for America: Inside the Great American Songbook from Gershwin to Sondheim will be released on November 5. Read reviews in Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews and Booklist.
