Jokes, Earthquakes, and Big Hands

04/01/10 3:00PM

A lot to cover this afternoon!  It's April Fools Day, Holy Thursday, and Rachmaninoff's Birthday.  We'll try to cover all the bases with music of P.D.Q. Bach, Mozart's Musical Joke, settings of the text Timor et Tremor for Holy Thursday, and Rachmaninoff playing his own music and music by Chopin.
