Live Broadcast, Friday at 7:30 pm
This week, Chicago’s North Shore is experiencing a population increase in acclaimed musicians. The North Shore Chamber Music Festival’s Vadim Gluzman and Angela Yoffe bear much of the responsibility.
The husband and wife duo (violin and piano) announced their intention to create the festival in October of 2010. Now in it’s 4th season, the Festival attracts some of music’s most celebrated performers. This year’s festival includes Alessio Bax, Anne Akiko Meyers, Paul Neubauer, and Andrew Litton.
WFMT engineer Eric Arunas goes on-location to Northbrook for a live broadcast of Friday’s concert. Dave Schwan hosts. The Festival runs through Saturday, June 7, 2014.
The on-demand performance (above) comes from a 2012 WFMT Impromptu. It’s a polka by Alfred Schnittke played by violinist Vadim Gluzman and pianist Angela Yoffe. The recording was engineered by Joshua Sauvageau.
