About This Program
Sometimes Classical with Richard Epstein. Since 1977, Richard has explored a wide range of music and sound on his show “Sometimes Classical”, which is often decidedly not classical at all. A dentist by day, he is a classically-trained professional musician, a bassoonist and saxophone player, and founded a jazz club in his hometown of Westport, CT. Mixing the sounds of Mingus, Mahler, Mink Deville, Miles, Mozart and Moby might be followed by Pygmy field recordings or cartoon music. Interviews, live performances, and whatnot pepper the tossed salad. It’s like a game of aural solitaire that somehow retires the deck.
