About this Playlist

April 30, 2016, marked the centenary of the birth of the legendary conductor and choral director Robert Shaw (1916-1999). Shaw was a frequent, inspiring creative presence at Carnegie Hall, leading more than 60 performances beginning in 1942, as well as a celebrated series of choral workshops from 1990 through 1998. This playlist pays tribute to Shaw with selections that demonstrate his mastery of the choral repertoire.
