The Palace of Nostalgia

Roaming through musical history.

The magic of Rodgers & Hart. They were an impossible duo. One of them was tall, slim, single-minded and disciplined; the other was a sad, insecure, alcoholic wreck.

Yet, in the years they worked together, they wrote songs like “My Funny Valentine”, “The Lady is a Tramp”, “Oklahoma”, “Bewitched”, “Ten Cents a Dance”, “Glad to Be Unhappy”, “There’s a Small Hotel” and “Blue Moon”.

Until it was no longer possible. Richard Rodgers continued with Oscar Hammerstein II as his partner, and Lorenz Hart slipped away to a sad death.

An hour-long stroll through their repertoire with Frank Sinatra, Sophie Tucker, Lee Wiley, June Christy, Alfred Drake, Doris Day, John Coltrane, Etta Jones, The Four Freshmen, Shirley Horn, Liza Minelli and Ella Fitzgerald.
