Keep Classical Weird

Keep Classical Weird

In the Keep Classical Weird podcast, host Casey Bozell explores all manner of kooky, mysterious and outlandish oddities associated with the wide world of classical music - all from her homebase in Portland, Oregon, a city celebrated for its culture and its eccentricity. Join Casey and some entertaining friends each week for a light-hearted and joyful look at why weirdness in classical music is part of what makes this art form so special.

2022 marks the first year that the music of Arnold Schoenberg has entered the public domain. What the heck does that mean? Is it a good thing? So many things for you to decide.

The examples used within this episode are AWESOME, and conducted by Schoenberg himself! Because we are THAT FAR ALONG in history and all just getting older. You can find the complete recording here:
