Audio Samples

Listen to An Evening With P.D.Q. Bach:  The Hearer’s Digest Condensed Version.  This Condensed Version gives you the intangible essence of the original recording in one small, easy-to-swallow capsule summary. The hyper folks at Hearer’s Digest have created this sample by slicing, dicing, and splicing, until it somewhat resembles excerpts of the original recording that are “severely truncated, but shorter.”

An Evening With P.D.Q. Bach:  The Hearer’s Digest Condensed Version

This Hearer’s Digest Condensed Version is made of excerpts from the following:  Spoken introduction to Concerto for Horn and Hardart—first aria from Iphigenia in Brooklyn—“Presto mit schleppend” from Sinfonia Concertante—second recitative from Iphigenia in Brooklyn—“Tema con variazione” from Concerto for Horn and Hardart—“Allegro” from Concerto for Horn and Hardart—spoken introduction—first “Allegro” and last “Allegro” from Quodlibet.
