Music from the Smithsonian, Part 1 of 2

James Weaver discusses the collection, restoration, and performance of restored musical instruments that are owned by the Smithsonian Institution. The research-based collection spans the seventeenth through the twentieth century and represents Continental and English as well as Afro-American influences. Recorded musical selections in this program include works by the mid-eighteenth-century composer Jacques Duphly, by Handel, and by Mozart.

At the time of this interview, Weaver was director of Performance Programs and curator of restored instruments at the National Museum of American History of the Smithsonian Institution.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
