Saturday, Mar. 14th : “Celebrating Franz Léhár”
Presented by Mrs. Andrea Lázár, hostess of WCPN Kapossy Hungarian Radio Hour
Franz Lehár is widely considered the leading operetta composer of the 20th century. His operettas included lush melodies, drama, light-hearted comedy, dance and lavish staging, and with their increasingly high musical caliber, his final works were closer to opera than to operetta. His mega-hit, The Merry Widow (1905), enjoyed such unprecedented success that by 1910 it had been performed over 18,000 times in ten languages, and over a century later, it remains one of the classic operettas still performed all over the world. Lehár also composed operas, sonatas and other musical pieces. Andrea Lázár has a vast knowledge of Hungarian music and composers thus making her the ideal person to share with our audience the life and music of this iconic composer as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of his birth.
