There is perhaps no more intimate connection in music than when a composer writes a solo piece specifically for a gifted performer, crafting the piece for the player’s specific strengths and musical tastes. We’ll talk with several performers about solos that have been written for them and feature performances of the pieces recorded live in our Levin studio.
Krzystof Penderecki: La Follia for Violin Solo (excerpts)
Anne-Sophia Mutter, violin
Antonio Celso Ribeiro: Syrian Requiem, I & IV
Michael Hall, viola
