I perform Charles-Valentin Alkan's "Le Grillon" (The Cricket) Op. 60bis. on 90.5 WUOL radio. As far as I know, this is the first proper public performance of this work in the United States (somebody please correct me if I am wrong). "Le Grillon" is Alkan's fourth and final nocturne that he composed, and the rarest of the four. It was published in 1859, the same year the Op. 57 nocturnes were published.
