Private Passions

Radio 3’s Private Passions is always good. Great edition with Philippe Sands, showing that he too “delights in all manifestations of the Terpsichorean muse”(see Muzak)—Leonard Cohen, Michael Chance singing Erbarme dich

(see also here and here), Bruno Walter conducting Mahler 9 in 1938, and Let’s pretend we’re bunny rabbits. Actually, the latter isn’t such a kitsch choice as its title suggests, but hey.

Note Sands’ film My Nazi legacy. Trailer here:
