A Tale of Two Humperdincks
When struggling pop singer Arnold Dorsey changed his name to Engelbert Humperdinck in the 1960s, his career suddenly took off. NPR's Fred Child recounts the story and we hear music by the original owner of that name: Austrian composer Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel overture in concert in Reykjavik. Owain Arwel Hughes conducts the Iceland Symphony.
