KDFC Bill Bennett Tribute
The final recorded performance of our beloved colleague and friend, Principal Oboist William Bennett, will be broadcast tonight starting at 8 pm as part of KDFC’s Tuesday night broadcast on 89.9/90.3/104.9 FM and KDFC.com. The concert program, conducted by Yan Pascal Tortelier and recorded Friday, February 22, is: Debussy’s Petite Suite, Strauss’ Oboe Concerto with soloist Principal Oboist William Bennett, and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 1 in C minor. As an added tribute to Bill, the station will rebroadcast his beautiful November 1995 performance of Mozart’s Oboe Concerto in C major, with Michael Tilson Thomas conducting the Orchestra, recorded just three months after MTT joined the SFS as Music Director. The broadcast will be archived for on-demand streaming from KDFC.com for 21 days. May the sound of Bill’s music live on always.
