Classical KUSC



The Record Shelf

with Jim Svejda

(Sundays, 10pm)

Let host Jim Svejda guide you through the best classical recordings on "The Record Shelf." Each week he reviews classical recordings with a passion and insight only he can provide. You’ll gain a deeper appreciation of classical music as you absorb his irreverent, selective and highly opinionated views of classical CDs.


Record Shelf 4/3: "The Koussy Premieres" -- in the first of two programs, music either commissioned or introduced by the great Russian conductor Serge Koussevitzky.

Record Shelf 4/10: In the second of two programs featuring music commissioned and premiered by Serge Koussevitzky, the second ever performance of Bela Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra.

Record Shelf 4/17: The Record Shelf Record Reviews -- offering critical reactions to the latest compact discs.

Record Shelf 4/24: "The Chip's Old Block" -- an hour of historic recordings by the great Austrian conductor Erich (father of Carlos) Kleiber.

Record Shelf 4/31: "Beecham on the Air" -- Sir Thomas Beecham conducts a program of his favorites on the Blue Network (what eventually became ABC).

    Jim: I would like to thank you for the two shows featuring Christian Ferras.
    He was a marvelous violinist, but I was unaware of him until your shows.
    I have since purchased two of his CD's. What a beautiful tone. Thanks
    again. Steve Gabel
