Antoni Pizà Back on the Air

The Foundation for Iberian Music’s director, Antoni Pizà, appeared on the Ona Mediterrània show “El Crepuscle Encén Estels” on October 15th. It was an informal visit, where Pizà and the host chatted about some of Pizà recent favorites, including jazz musicians Jacques Lousier and Friedrich Gulda, and Mozart. They discuss the flexibility of Bach’s music, as exemplified by Wendy Carlos’s synth interpretation Switched on Bach, as well as the asceticism of Bach and Cesar Franck. Pizà also ties in some current issues in US politics, such as the controversies of Columbus Day and Civil War statues.
